Quality of transformers in mic splitters

Howdy esteemed Geekslutz.

I have been meaning to ask this question for a long time:

Can the quality of a transformer used in a passive mic splitter affect the signal quality on the direct, hard-wired side?

Thanks!

Yes. The network consisting of the microphone, the transformer, and the desk inputs is quite complex. The inputs of the consoles will reflect back through the transformer. With good equipment its not a problem, but if you used cheap transformers it could be quite bad. And mixers with low impedance inputs will load the microphone excessively.

Sure, everything affects everything but in the grand scheme of things the impact will be very modest.
