Under what situations would I need or use the Rigol 50 Ohm thru feed adaptor on the DS1054Z ?  Is there a particular frequency point above which I would need it and below which I would not?  I saw the excellent YouTube that showed without an impedance match (low going into scope high) you might get reflections, but, I didn't understand is there a frequency threshold or some other issue. 

Thanks
