I am thinking that perhaps when switched to "Low" level input, as I have done, the Vibe is expecting the signal on the RCA pin to be the signal and the shield to simply be 0V. . .which is not the case with the Hi-Fi configuration because of these "balanced" outputs.

I have read a thread which says the Vibe amp supports balanced outputs but perhaps only when switched in "High" level input mode?
Yeah i think your rite in what your saying. What i gather is only the jl amps and arc-mini amps can be used when using differential outputs. Thats one of the reasons i went with the ms8 it sorts all these issues out.
