    A good microphone transformer! No noise. Free gain from 10 to 15 DB. No current draw. Connect that to a straight wire and I think you have it made?

    A nice sound for sure. But in terms of total harmonic distortion, signal to noise, and frequency response.....I think Earthworks pretty much kills it. And yeah, Millennia makes some transparent stuff too.
