    The 160 is balanced. The 161 is unbalanced. There might be a few other small differences but that's the big one.

    Besides the bal/unbal I/O the 160 used a slightly higher quality VCA (industrial insted of commericial not that it really makes a noticable difference )The 160 also had power on transient protection. (no power on pop/thumps)

    I have a pair of 161's for sale that I just don't seem to use anymore if anyone is interested. Email me off list. audiowave@prodigy.net
