The AVM has a mix of balanced and rca outs. I think it also has a pair of balanced inputs.

i believe the avm 60 is the de-amplified version of the 1120 avr (which appears to have almost identical specs to the 720), so the difference would be whether the inboard amps on the 720 are better than the bat/b&k). the conventional wisdom is that, all things being equal, separates are better, and bat makes an awfully nice amp, so i'd be inclined to go that route (tho theoretically if you used the 720 as a processor only there shouldn't be a hug difference).
I do know the connections and yes, avm does have balanced. Just wondering if anyone demoed side by side and noticed a difference in 2 channel. I agree my bat preform better than the 720 internal amp. I dont really need internal amps since I have my own. But 720 has them and is $500 less. My only concern was 2 channel music. As I said before I only listened to the str. Thanks Pete
I own the AVM 60. I have a dedicated 2-channel setup in the same room, so I don’t often use the AVM for listening, but periodically have, via iTunes/AppleTV. It does not sound bad, at all. I use a Marantz 7-channel and B&K 5-channel. For HT purposes, I really do like the AVM, it’s not “peaky” during various passages while watching BluRay’s or 4K content, nor do I strain to hear center channel content at low volumes. The ARC is pretty slick and easy to setup, as well as manipulate post process. All in all, I enjoy it and felt it was money well spent.
