I am selling my "The Truth" preamp. It has gained some venerable reputation in the last couple of years. It is a zero gain but active preamp. It is compared to the Pass B1 many a times but it surpasses the B1 in many interesting ways too. To start with the volume control doesnt use any resistors/attenuators, it is controlled by photo cell so the signal maintains extreme purity and channel seperation at all volume levels. Secondly it has no capacitors in the signal path which again leads to a very pristine quality to the sound. There are many reviews of this preamp (especially user reviews) on Audiogon, Audiokarma and Audioasylum. Here are some details:

My preamp is about 5 months old. Since I had requested for 4 line level inputs my landed cost was $1275. I am asking $975.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  5. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  6. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  7. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  8. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  9. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

I will be traveling to India in the month of May. I can carry it in my luggage. That should at least save on the shipping cost and some custom duties.
