My comments after yours (I suppressed my originals).

2) I'd consider a rail to rail op-amp that will run the rightClear... It may worth to implement as I will be building something anyway... though all this will serve more the DC and linearity I think.
Something else to consider: The use for a signal standardizer is onlyYou have a point there and indeed, I don't see myself having another 7xxx anytime soon or having any other Tek fan nearby with whom I could be swapping plug-ins.
Surely, I intend to have one or two additional vert Plug-ins (a 7A22 and, if luck smiles at me, another 7A26) but
the 7A22 should not pose problems to AC calibrate it, because at 1MHz, step response is not hard to come by and the - yet to exist - 2nd 7A26, I would need to calibrate it to match my 1st 7A26, much more than pursuing both to be "standard".
Well, DMMs are your friends.Indeed. I`m counting on it for the DC accuracy.
I wasn't sure either (reason I asked), but now that you made me think that achieving good overall results may be more important (in my case of a stand-alone set), you know it may be a good idea?2. Is it valid to think of my 2nd 7B53A "Ampl." function as a decentI'm not sure that I'd like that idea.
Consider that a vertical plug-in has a lot of adjustments inside (that are more or less redundant with the MF's and -to some extent - can compensate for any MF's lack or excess in some department) and that the "Ampl" input signal path of the 7B53A has almost no adjustment...
Then, If I can get the MF to display the best square wave possible using the TB's "Ampl" input, and then adjust the Vertical Plug-in to match whatever the MF will end-up (as long as I have range, of course), will eventually make the best possible adjustment for the set I have at hand? Or not?
You must be right in that, I don't believe I can rely on anything that I may be able to see single-endedly, specially in talking about step response.3. Is it a good idea to "tap" onto the output of the plugin (or converselyAn extender can save a lot of time and trouble.
