My electronics-self says I should match the ADC input impedance to the sensor(analog signal)'s output impedance. I shall choose the resistors to match the sensor's output impedance.

Impedance matching is a great way to maximize the amount of power.

But think about that again. When you buy an expensive multimeter - does it have a setting where it allows you to adapt the impedance, or does it just settle for a high impedance to reduce the amount it will affect the measurement circuit?

So in your case - are your system designed for transfer of energy, or is it a system intended to sense the value of a signal?

Next thing - do you expect big problems with reflections of your 4kHz input signal?
