Just now noticed attachments are not permitted - see the Photo section for RF590 balanced amp termination- Question remains as to advantageous/disadvantages.

Speaking of impedance in relation to a mixer is tricky since it's a non linear device. But you can think of impedance
at each of the frequencies.
IF = m*LO +&- n*RF
Some tricks can be done, for example reflecting the image back into the mixer rather than loosing it.
