Too far away for me, but I would be very interested in the outcome. I would like there to be a comparison of power supplies, the Mcru, Chinese cheapy and the Chord one.
We'll certainly compare my 2Qute with it's own supply vs the MCRU supply.

The Chinese supply is a different rating.

Re: Praise for NVA

On this occasion, our HFS friend chose to use that dealer facility to give awareness to NVA.

Re: Praise for NVA

There may be some crossed wires, though, Doc.

The author of the 'review' is the OP here, an NVA owner and regular HFS contributor. He's not a blog writer.

The site it is on is not a blog - it's just a customer reviews section on a dealer's website.

Re: Praise for NVA

Doc, why on earth would you effectively criticise some of your customers on this thread who want nothing more than to publicise your fantastic products through whatever medium is available to them? Whether that’s a retailer’s website/blog or not. I’m sorry but am I missing something? Doc operates w...

Re: Praise for NVA

I auditioned 3 dacs in my system - a Metrum Musette, a Schiit Gungnir and a Chord 2Qute. The first 2 are sold direct. I preferred the Chord in my system. I bought a secondhand Qute. Chord do their share of marketing / advertising and sell through dealers, so I can always agree with overpriced. Under...

In other words overpriced shite.
Is that based solely on the idea that it is sold through dealers?

Re: Praise for NVA

The love is not from the commercial website, but from the OP here.

AudioT will likely hate the idea of a direct seller being praised through the medium of their website.

Enjoy this small act of subversion...
