    As soon as Steve (Magna) has finished it I'll take pics - nice waxed walnut with hand finished aluminium front plate.

    Hi Adrian, any update on the nice front you was making for The Truth?

    I'm still waiting for Steve to finish it - he knows I'm not in a hurry and I prefer him to take his time. Don't worry once it's done I'll share photos.

    Ok so finally the Truth looks the part it deserves thanks to Steve of this parish. Remember this incredulous bit of kit comes in a, IMO, crappy diy black box with plastic knobs but so deserves better. I had Steve make me a beautiful walnut sleeve with turned aluminium feet to match the Vida, and he even made a rear one adjustable for leveling. He also made me a brushed aluminium fascia which looks great with the vintage Bakelite knobs. Lovely.

    It's the one next to the Vida.

    Looks mint. 'The Truth' still ticking all the boxes then?

    Steve's a genius with wood. It's a beautiful sleeve. Is it (the Truth) still ticking all boxes? Yes. I can't imagine changing it. Like the Vida and the SP10 it's going nowhere.

    Does this mean you have this very special bit of kit? I can't remember! Old age....

    Yep, I am also a lucky owner of a Truth preamp and want to give it a personal touch.

    Speak to Steve at Magna Audio (in trade) - he has the measurements from mine and can create a sleeve in any real wood. A copper fascia would be lovely. His prices are very reasonable.
