    OK; thanks Grant.


    How does one know if one has impedance mis-matching?

    Ideally you want a very high input impedence and a very low output impedence. It is often mentioned in the specs or can be worked out via math. Sticking a buffer in guarentees this. Alas a poor buffer circuit may also add a rair bit of distortion so you have to be careful there too. If you try one and hear no difference then you dont likely need it. It can be inserted between any 2 components, although most will use it impedence wise between pre and power.
    It will, so im told by some give a valvelike experience to solid state like a cd player. I dont really see it quite that way, but that is how i use mine..ie between cd and amp. Not sure why i like it but it sounds more real to me

    Sometimes incompetence is useful. It helps you keep an open mind.

    Hi, apologies, I didn't pick-up any PM. My fault.

    Yes please ...but I'm on holiday at present and won't be back until mid-April. Perhaps after then?

    Many thanks,

    Richard.

    OK no problem just pm me when you are ready to try it and if it's still in circulation by then you can try it.
