Re: Lockdown system change.

There are other arms that I think are better at hitting the mark than the Aro.

My LVX. Something went wrong with the counterbalance, with it going all gungey. And it's not a good enough arm to warrant spending any time or money on it.
Yours has done well to last all this time.

Re: New names and numbers for NVA Power Amplifiers - discussion thread

The point is to do something different to what everyone else is already doing... That's what NVA is about. Nothing wrong with that but surely you want something that trips off the tongue and, preferably, does so in different languages. I suppose Exemplar wouldn't work? For me, this part of the NVA ...

Re: New names and numbers for NVA Power Amplifiers - discussion thread

Hyperformer . Because that's what you've done to make them different to the already excellent for the price old models. Fitted hyper transformers. And why be modest? These are great amps! Bring on the bake-offs against amplifiers from certain well known brands that are good, but not that good, whil...

Re: Speakers again (groan) -what's it all about

When doing speaker / system bake-offs, I often find myself mentally plotting volume on the Y axis against time on the X axis. With non-compressed recordings, you'll get a series of transients that would give a series of Eiffel tower shaped spikes on the sort of system that I like. The sort of system...

Re: Opinions on how the Government have handled the coronavirus outbreak

I'm annoyed at the government. Local government. The libraries in my area are all still closed. Despite the Government saying they could be opened over a week ago. And there's no update on when they will be opened. Will I get a refund on my Council Tax for services that are not being provided to me?...
