The only thing in the way of you having a 'balanced headphone setup' with this DAC is the TRS connector on your headphone cable, and maybe the cabling itself if it shares a single ground wire for both channels (some beyerdynamics do)

Mine is arriving next week. I've seen an ad for a unit with an optional remote control. I wonder if that is something that can be ordered separately?

Is the Leaf Audio/Nuotech device very much the same? Seems like a good base for any custom desires (custom output circuitry). Also PSU section could be upgraded.

They are all the same, you have many sellers for the Leaf.
Just type the key word "9038Q2M" in the engine search and you will see )

For me this Leaf DAC has no competitor in this price range ! )

that converts to single ended, it dosnt provide balanced to your headphones. plugging your single ended headphone cable into this does not make the signal balanced.

And yes, given it shorts the negative phase signals to each other, it could very well trigger the short circuit protection of your amp/dac. its not really crap; it is, simply ... what it is.
