I much appreciated reading your review of the KANN Cube of February 10th. I noted with interest your comment that the sound quality was significantly improved when you connected the balanced XLR output to your sound system instead of using the 3.5MM unbalanced output.

Did you enable the Line Out mode (in the KANN Cube settings) when using the 3.5MM connection for this comparison? The reason I’m asking is that if this was the case, then it would seem that the balanced XLR connection specifically was responsible for the improvement, not just the bypassing of the internal headphone amplifier that the Line Output mode would appear to do. This is really significant, in my view.

Thank you again for your opinion!

Great review your honesty is appreciated and makes your site great pre-purchase research. To be honest though, I cant find any reputable distributor online where the SP1000M is similarly priced to the CUBE. I see 1499 vs 2199 that is a large difference in price.
