Hi All,

Hook up aside, I simply wanted to be sure that it would work in my system.
Seems another call to Ed is forthcoming.

Hi All,

A few months ago I was on the verge of purchasing the Truth, I even had a telephone conversation with Ed and was all set to take the plunge until I read the below statement:

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.

My system is as follows:

(1) Transport
(2) DAC
(3) Preamp
(4) Subwoofer
(5) Active Crossover
(6) Sub Amp
(7) Horn Amp

My system runs as stated above with the preamp going directly into my Muse Model 18 subwoofer before going to the crossover.
Will I experience the same lack of output as stated above if I go with the Truth preamp?

Regards

Hi guys,

Here's a picture of the left side of my room. Don't have a fancy camera so I was unable to take the entire room.

Hi guys,

I am crossing mine over at 250htz to meet a pair of woofers which take over from there and play down to 30htz.

Hi All,

Is this Truth with gain primarily for vinyl reproduction?
Are those of us with CD only playback safe with the Truth as is?

Hi,

Anyone using a crown XLS amp to play their Horns?
Any comments on the sound?
To use or not to use, not that is the question?

Regards

The design was created by an older audiophile friend of mine.
