The swara tube buffer offers unity gain, low impedance on the output, and higher impedance on the input. This enables it to be used between any two line level devices and helps minimize impedance related issues between the two equipment. The benefit would be a more linear frequency response with minimal phase shifts and fluid presentation. Here are a few examples of audiophile equipment combinations that will benefit from the buffer.
- CD Player/DAC & Integrated/Pre amplifier
- Phono-Stage & Integrated/Pre amplifier
- DAC/DAP & Headphone amplifier
- A/V Receiver & Power amplifier
The other significant advantage is the very subtle sonic character that comes from the tubes. Music listening sessions will be more enjoyable, devoid of any listening fatigue that might be present in a pre-existing system.
