that makes sense to me, it seems a 1V or however much line level signal would push the output transformer a lot harder than a weak microphone voltage on the input transformer. apparently the output transformer is where you want to find your hair with the N72, and a post-transformer pad would be needed to make that happen and still be friendly to your digital line inputs.

I bet you could use an active bass with a hot active direct box, or clean boost pedal, to drive the input into saturation, but that's a very specific application with no microphones involved.

I love the N72, it's gooey in a good way, which is why I use it.
