Here's what I've learned. You cannot go unbalanced in to unbalanced out, if the line level jumpers are set. A sort of workaround is to set the power up level of L1 to max. I'm not sure what additional processing gets done in the unjumpered mode. Unfortunately the output lock does not persist between powerups. I don't have any balanced anything yet, so I've been unable to experiment with those inputs and outputs.
I am still very very happy with the unit.
If the unbalanced outputs are set to fixed DAC out mode, then the only signal that can go there is the DAC signal. The only difference between fixed DAC out and normal mode is the bypassing of the attenuator with the DAC signal. The balanced outputs can easily be turned into unbalanced outputs with these adaptors: http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-Cable-GPR101-Inch-Adaptor/dp/B000068O3S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421368028&sr=8-1&keywords=ts+to+rca+adapter
Contrary to what the manual currently states, it is correct to short the ring to ground on the balanced output to make it a proper unbalanced signal.
It is also true that the output lock feature is reset on power cycling to avoid someone walking up to the unit and thinking it's broken. This is mostly the case in professional environments where you have multiple users, but for home environments it makes less sense to have it that way.
That adaptor information is good to know.
The manual is darn good. I've read it a couple times. It's very information dense, and I can now see that every "issue" I had was addressed inside.
Grounded/isolated USB is one of several reasons I chose this.
I'm glad to buy something directly from guys in the USA, and I really appreciate you coming here and talking to us.
