I hear ya Ed. I want to change out the crossover for my speakers. My wife beat me to the cash and bought a recliner and couch. (Well we do need a good recliner... but my toy comes next!)

Ed,

I'm surprised it came back. Unless he is hoping for "The Incredibly Ultimate Truth" version 2.2. Did he give a clue as to when the review is forthcoming?

In my system, which has an active crossover, the Truth couldn't drive the crossover enough to get my amps to provide anything more than background music level. I had the Truth volume pegged. I had to add about 3-4 DB of gain at the crossover to drive the amps. I notice no change in sound quality between stock and with boost in sound quality.  For those who need a little extra, an after Truth stage may be the answer.
I can't see how an input tranny would be better. Certainly not for the money.

Before anybody reads this the wrong way, I love the Truth. In like 99% of systems, it will be damn near perfect.

Henry, thank you. Is that the stuff Ed used to lube his turntable bearing?

What's your favorite? Needed for tonearms and firearms.

Peter Aczel, long time audiophile, and editor of "The Audio Critic" has passed. He was a staunch objectivist who called out most of the questionable practices so rife in the hobby. I have no doubt that he would have loved Ed's bucket sub.
Rest In Peace.

Mr Salvatore has dropped a couple of hints about the"Ultimate Truth" but they're only teasers.

Henry, Ed did that for mine. He put a selection toggle switch on the back. I love being able to switch from phono (TS phono stage) to digital without unplugging anything. Highly recommended.

Wow. Five hundred plus for each transformer, an Italian specialty product. Perhaps hand wound by the pontiff himself?
Man, I can see the need if you don't have enough gain, but I can't imagine anything being a significant improvement over the Truth and TS phono stage. I hope it gets a review.

Sounds pretty much as expected. Question: Did you go with a dual power supply? I'm kinda' thinking that it didn't really matter.
