Thanks D. I agree no one should actually need it in a well matched system. But it's now here in spite of that!

Me too, Henry!

If you can read more than a paragraph of LaWana's incoherent steaming mass of dung, she states: "non-people of color".  Gosh, and all these years I diminished my presence in the universe as a white guy.   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

Well, while the T2 experiment with the xformers was not a complete fail it was not a complete success either. The xformers did supply the gain but the sound was not as transparent as with out them.

That's all over now. The new ones are "Super Permalloy" and a different winding. All I can say is gain is no longer an issue and they are as transparent as w/o them in circuit. Keep in mind they are not just "stuck in front of the selector" Smiley.

Just like everything, else my approach to all this not exactly "what you might think".

The bad is...they add almost $1500 to the cost! They are very expensive but there is more to the cost than just them... a lot more. The T4 has 3 power supplies.

Now, if Max ( Irv) will just tell me where he got the xformers we'll be in business Smiley.

We'll see what Arthur has to say since I built this for him and Max supplied the xformers.  I already know the answer. Now, I just need to figure out how to get Max to "gift" me a set of the xformers! Smiley

There's sure to be more later. For now the use of xformers (like these at least) for getting gain has been better than anything else I have a long shot. No one will send a T4 back.
***EDIT***  It should go without saying but I'll say it anyway..........every unit I have ever made can be "upgraded" to any level. If one does not need  gain the T4 is not needed! It simply allows The Truth to be used when the source output is low, whether it a phono pre amp or line level source. The object was to have the transparency of the standard circuit but with gain for those that need it due to low source output. I think I succeeded, I'm anxious to hear what Arthur thinks. There will be a review/report......for better or worse, it will be The truth! Smiley

Y'all know we think of you guys as family so we share the good and bad. We lost a dear member of ours today/tonight. Helen is very upset. Esparta was one of the last Turkish Van cats. Tweetie is our last. She is very old too.

Esparta had gotten a bladder infection and was leaking and so confined to bathroom. I was to pick up a very powerful antibiotic shot for him tomorrow (today now). He had this before. I checked on him in the afternoon and he seemed fine. Neither of us checked on him again until about 11:30 tonight  and he was gone. It's about 12:00 when I started writing this. Helen is very upset she did not go see him when she got home from work. I can do nothing to ease that pain. I wish I'd have checked on him again too. I can't fix that either and no matter, he was going to die. Even though I can work this out it still hurts like HELL to lose our buddy.

Esparta was a Turkish Van and he won many awards in cat shows. He was a bad ass. We are not sure of his exact age but I have a plaque from a cat show in 1995 he won. He probably was a few years old then. He was a very loving cat and we loved him dearly. He loved anyone who would allow him on their lap.

I have five between now and December.  Everything from Asleep At The Wheel to The Kentucky Headhunters.  I gave away tickets to Jason Isbell because I'll be at my mom's surgery.  I have been trying to see everyone I can while I can, and it's pretty cool.  I worked long and hard to get here.   Grin
