Is a wireless G50 considered buffered?

    is enter?

    It is a kind of buffer, because you're sending your signal through a digital wireless connection. The signal has to be encoded, transmitted, an decoded at the end. True bypass it ain't.

    It would be considered buffered because it acts as a pre-amp -- exposing your instrument to its own input characteristics without these being modified by a long cable.

    yup, the receiver's output is "active", thus buffered.

    The whole "bass" point of the Monster "bass" cable is it rolls off highs, making the lows seem more prominent. So almost anything will make your highs sound better or brighter than that.

    On Reddit's r/trees, "enter" could mean "higher", too. :p
