Aside from ground noise on single ended. Will not grounding properly causes slight hiss on balanced output?

Maybe. A very low level hum (especially one that is rich in harmonics) could be perceived as a hiss.

I'm still scratching my head sorting the ground issue. What about putting in a ground loop breaker. is it a good idea?

If the cause of your hum is due to a ground loop, then yes. Disconnect your source and see if you still hear the hum. If you no longer have hum, then it's probably due to a ground loop.

Ti,
Pls. look what KG said about e12 when coupled with SuSy dynahi:

By no means I question anyone, but could you comment it please? It's because I'm planning to use e12s with dynahi, but now I'm stuck and confused if they will really do their job of DC offset protection.

For simplicity, and to reduce its size footprint, the ε12 uses a summing amplifier at its input to detect DC offset from all channels at the same time. But there is a downside to this arrangement, since all channels are summed, let's suppose one channel's DC offset goes to -2V and another channel goes to +2V, then the two will sum to zero and not be detected. This is however quite an unlikely situation, where one channel's DC offset would be exactly the same as another channel but inverted in polarity.

If you want to avoid this situation, you can use a separate ε12 for each channel.

If you wish to do that, then yes.

I am thinking of building the the SuSy Dynahi with onboard heatsinks. From what I read, Kevin suggested biasing 375mV instead of 750mV due to the limited heatsinks. I wonder if I should replace any resistors from the original BOM before powering up for testing. My boards have 50 ohm biasing resistors, instead of the 100 ohm as in schematic.
