I think what he means is that the line is fed by a transformer, that
matches an output stage at some impedance, say 5,000 or 10,000 ohms, to a
line that is terminated with a 600 ohm load. This is essentially a power
transfer, since the line driver stage isn't a low impedance cathode
follower or emitter follower, etc.
There's nothing that says that you can't use a pair of low impedance
emitter followers to drive a balanced load. But then you lose the
isolation of the transformer.
