PS Audio Stellar phono question

I have a Stellar Phono preamp which both RCA and XLR outputs.  I will be getting a new preamp that has both RCA and XLR inputs.  Are the XLR outputs on the Stellar Phono truly “balanced”?

Is there an advantage to using the XLR connection between the Stellar Phono and the preamp?


Is the new (mystery) preamp truly balanced. IC "quality" is probably a bigger factor.

I think it is true balanced, but consult PS Audio directly is my advice.

If both input and output are truly balanced, then yes, the XLR connection is much cleaner with much less noise.  Probably a good thing from a phono stage to a preamp...
