I posted this over on head-fi also. Just wanted to post here also for more opinions.

So apparently now I am getting a Citypulse DAC DA7.2x II instead of the Zhaolu and I saw it has balanced outputs. Then the gears in my head starting turning.

Since the Shanling PH100 has 2 different inputs, couldn't I mod the input/output connectors and just make the aux + cd inputs work at the same time? Maybe a new transformer would be needed to provide enough juice, but it would be a very cheap, VERY powerful balanced amp then.

My idea is the l/r of the cd input would become the +/- for the right speaker only. The l/r of the aux input would become the +/- of the left speaker only.

With both inputs running at the same time the power output should be double of these regular specs.
2400mW/16ohm
1200mW/32ohm
600mW/64ohm
130mW/300ohm
65mW/600ohm"

It should even be able to fully power balanced HD600's(300 ohm) headphones. Would this work or am I missing something?

This would be nice because for 220(price of amp) + say 50 bucks for connectors, you would have a nice solid state amp that could power pretty much any balanced headphone that is 300 ohms or lower.
