In reply to this old thread, I used to sell a "valve line buffer" from Musical Fidelity called the X-10D way back in my hifi retail days. It was essentially designed to sit between a CD player and preamp, to bring some "warmth" back to what can sometimes sound like a cold and sterile player. Good or bad is subjective, but it sure sounded different.
  They still fetch more than the original retail price now, unsurprising as they were only £120 back then, but reading this has made me wonder what effect it might have sitting between my very basic Pioneer DDJ-Wego 3 digital controller (which doesn't have a great analog output stage) and my Formula Sound FSM600 (which does).


Maybe not quite the OSP, but close enough for Jazz!

And in keeping with many products discussed on this forum, hot on the heels of a classic Western design here is the Chinese copy...

I wonder if blue LEDS sound warmer than orange? or perhaps they burn off the coldness with the blue...... using quantum photonic exchange ..or somthink...they could just knit it a sweater...a quantum sweater...............none on ebay,perhaps alibaba's got some. maybe a copy of the !!NORDOST!! one, but reasonably priced.

The colour temperature scale would say that blue is hotter than orange, but who's really to say? Perhaps we live in topsy turvy world, and it's really the younger people who are more sarcastic that the old? Smile

Sorry, I was doodling. Have you tried using line isolating transformers with a bypass switch and A/B testing them ..I recon they do something very nice to line level sound (Neve knows whats up!)
