Re: Macca's System Blog

Fine.

I'm happy to leave Macca to make his own mind up.

Re: Macca's System Blog

nothing to do with ego, just experience.

you heard an XTZ amp? - no, I didn't think so.

Re: Macca's System Blog

wotta loada :Bllocks: :mrgreen: There is an XTZ sound, and there is an NVA sound. I know - I've had 'em and heard 'em! And the perspectives they present on the music are quite different.
