I have 2 Hex's in my rig and am torn whether or not I want to have the active buffers on, as I notice they definitely are not transparent. At first I felt they made the signal "stronger" and liked them...A/Bing a bunch and I'm not sure anymore. Especially with 2 of them on, it seems like they possibly add some lower mids to the signal and make the signal a bit cloudy. I have some other buffers in the chain that are completely transparent, but the HEX buffers are definitely more noticeable in the way they alter the tone...

Wondering what others think about the buffers and if they feel the click stopper circuit is worth using rather than disabling the buffers?

Are the relays without the click stopper relatively silent? I have some true bypass pedals that pop loudly when I turn them on, and am wondering if the Hex without the click stopper will display this behavior, or will still be more silent than your standard true bypass pedal?

Anything else I can do to reduce clicks without needing these buffers on? Lehle DC Filters to make sure theres no DC offset at some point in the signal chain?

Any advice is appreciated to help make a decision and optimize my rig.
