I don't know whether your preamp is tube or not..sounds like it is. If so, I don't see any reason for the tube buffer. I have never heard one, but I was tempted to by its predecessor until I scored a line level Cary preamp here on audiogon (a very early model, but, still, Cary) for a price about the same as the buffer. Whatever the buffer does, a tube preamp does imho. Save up your money for something else!
