Thank you

That was perhaps the best explanation of passives vs buffer vs traditional preamp usage I've read. Simple (for the non engineer) and non bias.

I like my CJ preamp very much. It doesn't seem to limit the bandwidth or add coloration to the sound. That is one transparent preamp.

However I was always fond of fooling around with passives. Never had much luck with them and I always came back to the more traditional preamp. Now at least I know why.

Maybe one day when I get REAL bored I'll build that Pass DIY buffer. Again it was only a fun project and not intended to replace anything.
