Wink impedance bridging problems

I built three "net" class a amps to drive headphones from line level sources. All were disappointing. I realised that common emitter input was always going to give problems in impedance bridging.
Heres my solution, emitter follower input.

I chose a high current capable device to drive the second stage. The amp sounds good to my old ears on all line level sources to my Grado's.
I don't have much test equipment, so i wondered if the 2n3055 collector load together with the emitter resistor was introducing an element of voltage gain (2?) what do you guys think?

Of course there can't be any voltage gain from an emitter follower. Still it works nicely.
