'Bout time you came to your senses.

Q1: Which companies make these high performance line matching transformers?
Jensen, Sowter, Lundahl, and Stevens & Billington to name a few.

Q2: With a transformer, should I buffer the output?
Not necessarily. The output will see pretty much the same impedance it'd see otherwise.

Q3: Using a transformer would make life extra easy for integration into the Balanced Zen Pre-amp. However, I do not need the signal gain, would a simple voltage follower buffer make things any better?
How do you mean? A voltage follower buffer where? In lieu of the Zen?

Q4: Are there any worthy pre-amp output buffer stages which can drive headphones?
Sure. Take a look at some of the projects over at Headwize.
