    Default Waiting for the Truth

    Hailed by Arthur Salvatore as the most significant HiFi component currently available, my own The Truth linestage has been languishing with customs for almost 3 weeks. Numerous phonecalls have led nowhere and it seems I won't have my Christmas present at the one time of year when i actually have a holiday and lots of time to listen. Am I p*ssed off? Too bloody right.

    I doubt if customs know it uses photocells, but they may query the price of something which looks to have a DIY build.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I don't think they'll know it uses photocells - they may have an issue with the price but after speaking with them they can't offer an explanation and have said they'll get back to me with a solution (to a problem they don't understand).

    The solution is simple, tell me how much and deliver the bloody thing.

    I've had a custom wooden sleeve made for it that matches the Vida.

    Grrrrrr - no Santa.

    I've had all sorts items sent from the other side of the world and not had real issues, apart from the odd delay for duty payment before items were released for delivery. I did have a batch or two of LDR's sent without bother.

    Maybe if there were wires dangling out of the package it's been destroyed in a controlled explosion but they haven't got the heart to tell you??

    Maybe there's something in the saying "The Truth hurts". Hope you get it sorted and that it will prove worth the wait.
