Yes indeed. I just used them in my Spica TC50 project!

Agreed! 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
I see.   Seems synergy with the amp is key. Input sensitivity plays a role in this for sure.  
Tubes or not
Never required, but sometimes preferred.

Seems my point was missed.  Mr. Johnson will never respond wether true or not and sometimes the right thing to do has nothing to do with who is right. Carry on.

The man has passed away and cannot defend himself against what anyone on the net cares to say.  I am uncomfortable with these latest posts and don’t think they should remain here.  Mods take a look.  Just not the right place or time.  
Tubes or not
MHDT Orchid for $1100.  Get the Western Electric tube.  Amazing dac that will make you smile! 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
Cal3713, Ed offers a trial period and you can play with one.  No caps, resistors or volume control in the signal path! The balance control is not in the signal path! The selector switch is, but I don’t have a selector Switch as I only need one inp... 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
Charles, After trying many amps with the Lyngdorf I found one that bettered the 2170 as a stand alone unit. The Clayton amp. I love this amp. If offered more dynamic impact, improved natural tone, greater bass and mid bass foundation as well as a ...

@t_ramey. My unit has remote.  The volume changes very little from start all the way up to say 11 o’clock on the dial.  The volume then ramps up quickly from 11:30-1:30 where most of the volume increase takes place. While this is a pretty narrow r... 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
I will not touch the caps per Ed’s advice.  Just the wire and RCA jacks.  Ed is pretty adamant that changing out the caps will make no difference based on his testing and design.  I must say the unit sounds wonderful so I will trust his comments. ...

I also damped the woofer baskets, but did not apply your felt idea. All crossover connections are solderless using clamping devices to clamp the bare wire connections.I decided to use the stock Jantzen air core inductors on the mids and highs as t...

That is exactly what I did to a set of Double Impact speakers.  The result was wonderful! I used Duelund stranded and tinned copper wire in cotton throughout and crossover parts like Path Audio resistors, Jantzen Superior Z, Jupiter VT and Mundorf... 
Hornshoppe "the Truth" preamp - any opinions?
I have a Clayton Audio S40 pure class A amp. Sensitivity to full volume is 1.3v so a great match with The Truth.  @thaluza   Vampire makes some very good rca jacks for only $35 or so per set on sale. I am also thinking of direct soldering my ICs a...
