Are 7050B 5.0 outputs buffered?

Are 7050B 5.0 outputs buffered?

I am looking to buy a 8020 LSE Espresso (7050B + 5x 8020A) system. My analog sources are unbalanced, although I can trim them +6 dB to compensate. Cables to the sub will be <5 meters, but the cables from the subwoofer 5.0 outputs will be longer-- as much as 10 meters to the surround speakers.
My question is: Are the 7050B 5.0 outputs buffered, so they will convert the unbalanced input to balanced output, and thus get the reduced-noise benefit of balanced cabling to the satellite speakers?

The 7060B subwoofer and above have buffered outputs, the 7050B does not have.
