RE: Addendum

Yes, I have had the experience with the Quad as well.

My point though is that you are also involving the amplifier, and all amps make distortion. Due to the ear's masking principle, the presence of distortion can mask low level detail- detail that can indeed be transmitted by a cap if executed properly.

So- the idea here is to see if the impedance can be raised (thus reducing amplifier distortion) by examining the way the bass transformer and the new transformer interact at frequencies above the 'cutoff' of the LF transformer. Maybe its not a concern, but it may well prove worth looking into.
