I ordered mine in a black metal case many years ago. Bought the know of eBay.

Unfortunately the black face plate has changed color toward purple. Probably was not UV resistant. Maybe one day I'll 'paint' the face plate black again.

Saw it this morning on my Smart phone, since you also posted it on FB.

Congrats to another great review. Maybe the Horn Shoppe sone become the Truth Shoppe  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Congrats to your new 'break through'

Thankfully I do not need the extra gain and the original Truth is plenty good for me and better then anything I could otherwise afford.

On the other hand, look how much money people spend on an active PRE for extra gain (or not) and LESS performance. So your T should be a steal for those people. Just needs a fancy face-plate and some big knobs Grin Grin Grin

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.

Thanks

Looking forward to another rave review.

However, I feel no need of upgrading my T1 TRUTH. It's just that good.

I heard the 4 tube beast and with the Horned Heil in Ed's room it was sufficient power and ompf.

Why use more if you don't need to?  Wink Grin

Hi Steve;

I am doing well and are back living in Spain. Just been back to the states for a holiday. Had a chance seeing Ed and his new Truth.

eBay probably is the best place finding any kind of knob. That's were I found mine several years ago.
11  General Category / The Truth Pre Amp / Re: changes to The Truth.... on: October 21, 2017, 09:22:49 AM
I just want a cool looking set of knobs for mine.


You should find some on eBay.

You should be able to try some cheap RS caps before forking out the big cash for high quality caps. Or as you said, maybe find some in your chunk pile.

Ed used a 0.33 uf cap on the Fostex T-90 and his horn, Which were somwehere around 93 db

My Sapphire II are 89 db and a 0.22 uf works perfect with that.

So if your speaker is around 90 db you should be fine with a cap just a little bigger then mine.

I believe the Sapphire have a sensitivity of around 89 db/1W

So Ed suggested 0.22uf on the positive leg, which works PERFECT with my Sapphire.

Back in the days I bought the T-90 for my horns. Now I have the Heils.

However, mine are not for sale. I use mine with my ACI Sapphire II speakers and a different Cap. Sounds pretty good. The Sound has become more detailed without being aggressive or bright.

Hope you find yourself some T-90.
