This question may apply to Vivaldi and Bartok as well.
I recently purchased a Rel S/510 sub to add some bottom to my Maggie 20.7s. Rel claims the best way to integrate a Rel sub is via the high-level output option going from the amp’s speaker terminals to the sub using the Neutrix cable Rel provides.
Has anyone compared this high-level output option to a low level output using the RCA (unbalanced) outputs of the Rossini? I seem to be getting deeper bass and better integration using the low-level RCA outputs of the Rossini.
These next questions may be for Andrew.
Is there any degradation of the SQ using the XLR (balanced) outs to drive my amp and the RCA (unbalanced) outs concurrently to drive a subwoofer?
Would there be any advantage to avoid using RCA (unbalanced) cables altogether and go from the Rossini to the Rel sub via XLR inputs and from the Rel XLR outputs to my amp?
