I actually have my STT-1 on a patch bay as there's so many I/O combinations on it.

Try the unbalanced output which is technically higher quality than the balanced output as it uses a fully discreet output circuit and is of the highest quality.
I guess most of users here are engineers because what you say sounds chinese to me ( i mean it in positive way) but this gonna be a challange for me that i have to deal with it

In the other hand i did understand ( Try the unbalanced output which is technically higher quality than the balanced output as it uses a fully discreet output circuit and is of the highest quality.)
