The answer is, it is possible. If it is only one or 2 buffers you may not hear the difference, but the more you stack the more tone is being sucked out of your clean signal. The subject is called True Bypassing.

I've been having a blast with my Post Wolf with OBEL with Wald buffer. Previously I was playing a strat with stratoblaster (no OBEL). The buffer has helped tremendously with the envelope filter and solved a nasty pedal pop issue I was having with my modded VOX wah. Around the time I received my Wolf I also ordered a Loop Master 10 port switcher to limit tone suck of my daisy chained pedals and to hopefully cure the wah pedal pop by being able to leave the pedal on at all times.

I like the OBEL/buffer mostly because of having master volume control over the whole rig at my fingers.
I like running the amp a bit louder and using the guitar vol on 8-9 most of the time, leaving a bit of headroom but still getting full effect out of my pedals, especially the overdrive/distortion. I realize the impetus originally was to get consistent results out of the Mutron but I know when I started using the OBEL I felt like I had more control over volume, dynamics and my distorted lead tones than using a traditional rig. It has spoiled me. The Jerry rig setup just gives me a bigger palette of clean headroom/volume/distorted tones, not to mention a better envelope filter results. Part of that is the amp setup but the OBEL/buffer works hand in hand.
