I'm guessing you could get them to misbehave more by using not ideal out/in impedances but I would look elsewhere.
For good value I liked what the cheaper steel Cinemags did, a little fluffy for mastering but fun in a recording and mixing scenario.

I wish I would have put mine in a 1u rack with my passive monitor controller and direct box transformers to save space, but most that I've seen have been in little boxes like mine.weiss said:Looking great First time i hear about the wf30!
Haven't seen rack units yet. Are boxes more practical?

These transformers make almost every individual source sound better when tracking.
weiss said:yeah! thanks. Already checked it out
Does it make sense to use a pot when only using one transformer per channel?
