Do tube DIs buffer the unbalanced output?

    Hey guys, do all the decent tube DIs (Avalon, Demeter, etc.) buffer the 1/4" unbalanced output, or are the INs and OUTs merely connected in parallel?

    I was surprised I couldn't find blocks diagram for the Demeter and Avalon products on their repective websites.

    I would be willing to be that on the nicer models, like those you mentioned it would be buffered. However on cheaper DI's I would be inclined to say its simply parallel.
