idle little transformer
What's a good use for a little line transformer?  
I have one which is 30k input and 200ohm output.  
It has a three pin plug and a shielded two wire cord.  
Any suggestion will be much appreciated.  
Thanks in advance.

Check out this print:  
The "1W Moonlight OT" in the 'Midstage Distortion Option" looks like it may be a somewhat similar unit. For once, this circuit design is something I HAVE tried, and I think it sounds GREAT (I think push-pull distortion sounds wonderful, whether used in a preamp with small-signal triodes/pentodes or in an output stage). I've always wanted to build a completely push-pull preamp from input to output, using three of those little guys (the Hammond 125A is also cool for this purpose - I liked a 12AT7 with it, but I haven't tried the 6SN7 or 6SL7) - maybe one of these days...

If you use the 200 ohm side as the input it would be a good input transformer for a tube mic preamp.
