WOW. Some extreme high praise. But then having the Truth for several years and knowing how well it performs I would not have expected anything less.

The Truth actually made Salvatore's source sound better then using his source without the Truth. Probably due to the buffers.

From the review.............
"The Truth" is always performing at "its very best"; regardless of the input source and/or regardless of the amplifiers and cables it is driving. In short, "The Truth", any model, is never sonically compromised by the components it is used with, no matter how difficult they are to optimize.

Hi Ed;

Hope this is OK to ask a Technical Question about a different Speaker Make.

Just bought some nice looking BRAUN (A/D/S) SM 1002 of flea-bay. Speakers had no binding posts, just some unmarked wires coming out the back.

I added some binding post and determined polarity via a small battery and watching which way the woofer moved. Also there is a red cross on one terminal of the woofer, so I am sure I got that polarity right with the woofer.

Did a Phase test with a Test CD and did not get any 'tightly focused' voice coming from the center when the signal was in phase. When the signal was out of phase it just sounded more diffused.

Took another look inside both speakers. I see 3 BLACK wires, one going to each driver, so I assume they are the NEGATIVE lead. Then each driver has a distinct color wire going to them. Can't see how the traces run on the x-over board.

When listening to music I can hear clearly how music is coming from the left and right speaker, but I don't hear too much coming from the center. Solo instrument sound somewhat diffused on the left and right side.

ANY SUGGESTION on how to proceed?

PS. Should mention that the bass driver have new surround foams, so my first thought was that the repair men wired the bass woofer incorrect, but then i ASSUME that the colored wire is the POSITIVE side.
