Will this product retain the adjustable input impedance feature of the passives?
If so, why would it be advantageous to retain that with the buffer?

In all likelihood I'll disable adjustable impedance in the new preamp which will have the added benefit of making it less confusing.

Is there any chance this will be configurable to +3 (like with your tube buffer)or +6 db of gain?

No. There's no gain stage in the LDR300. It's a unity gain preamp just like our passive preamps except it's buffered.

Does the Tour unit contain the new OLED display?

I haven’t seen any images of the new display anywhere (or maybe I am looking in all the wrong places on the Tortuga website).

EDIT: never mind. I was just being a little more lazier than usual. Found it!
