Had a quick listen in an unfamiliar system, sounded very good as a first impressions.
“Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”
It's raved about on the High End Audio site. This site makes a good read, but the recommended components are very US-centric and I simply can't agree with some of the findings. Highly entertaining, though, and I do believe Salvatore is a genuine person and writes what he hears.
The Truth is an active preamp with unity gain since the stage is described as a buffer. So you have the drawback of the lack of gain of a passive but the advantage of being able to drive a power amp well. Whether it would work can be tested by trying a passive in your system. If there is enough volume at the highest levels you listen to, then it's a go and should dramatically improve on a passive. If not, you need an active preamp with gain.
