That's funny! I'm from Italy and don't undestand well the nuances of english speaking, but I cannot disagree. I am the first to say that many people look for the "nice cable" and the market don't care what is the truth, until there is a dull who ever buy. Aesthetics comes before the substance...

Was there really someone who tried to taste a metallic banana?

Well, I made the buffer at the end...I used the circuit suggested by GoatGuy. It runs very well coupled with a Class A headphone amp. I built it with slight modification, C(out) and C(byp), and with higher voltage 240-250 V regulated. I tried before with a JJ E88CC and then with a tube made in England (probabily a BRIMAR BVA of the sixites). With the last one it sounds very musical and soundstage too is good.

Love it.
Thanks for the feedback re: Brimar BVA valve.
I'll have to build another one myself.

Yes, I won the bid on the Bay for cheap price (just because marks was almost deleted). But the tube yeld is very good, very musical and "airy" sound.
