line input transformer?

I am struggling to get my head around the line input transformer idea ,i would like to know, what they do to the signal ,are they balanced /
unbalanced and can you reverse any output transformer to behave as an input transformer.

I dropped my pants at a WalMart.  :grin:

Welcome back, CJ!!! Good to hear from you!

I got mooned one time, I was driving to a gig, and some girl walking down the sidewalk just dropped her pants. She was cute, but probably not legal (age or activity).
