Only the high-end hi-fi people and pro gear will offer balanced outputs. But the Result 6s will be quite happy with unbalanced inputs in a domestic situation.
Modern amps all seem to be equipped with Blue Teeth but no phono RIAA inputs and I would like to integrate my Rega Planar TT into the setup.
There are plenty of affordable stand-alone phono preamps that you can use to bridge the gap between phono pickup and line input. The Rega Fono MM for example (£200).
