I have noticed a noticeable degradation in sound quality if you Input Setup HiFi signals -obviously for the reasons stated above, it is completely unnecessary.
Curious, why do you think there is a degradation in sound quality after recoding the HU to HiFi balanced output? As you know, I have same configuration and was looking to recode my unit cause I assumed that there will be an improvement...
