Hi everyone, just popping in.

I bought the Jolida JD9 due to the fantastic reviews I have found and the Mods that were done to it. It also fits in with me trying to be more "hands on" I am currently building a DC blocker as my first DIY project and this phono stage has about 100 pages of mods and tips over on AK. If it suits my future needs I'll keep it, if not it'll be sold.

The FB-OTP MK2 really is very good IMO and from my perception at the bakeoff there was very little difference in performance between that and the NVA1. As in line with every review from the bake off. The FB Tron wasn't in my budget, neither was the NVA2 with extra PSU which I would gladly have bought if it was. One of the main selling point of the Jolida was the fact it incorporates valves in the output stage and this is something I came to realise was important to me. I love valves and I now know that I want them in my system. That's what I took away from the bakeoff.

There isn't a fall out either. Sorry!

I'm not sure what you mean? What I've written is true, as always, Doc. If can tell from the context, there is no defensive undertone either. Just participating as a member of the forum. I called for a truce which I am happy to keep up 👍.

Then be consistent with your views, I can read you know, so can others and they are in the archive here and at AoS. I am not in the slightest bit interested in truces. More meaningless bollocks. I post in reply to your post, with your past posts being a reference against it - that will continue, I am only interested in THE TRUTH, and in the case of your posts it seems to be made of elastic. BTW it seems you are even worse when you think it is private, I have had passed to me some serious bollocks and lies, both from repeated phone calls and emails. Where do you get off to warn people not to meet me as I am as bad in person as I am on line, what ever that means.

Have I been moderated again! Sweet Christmas! That joke was funny.

C'mon guys.

I respect the verdict and to be fair, I can see where they are coming from. The Phono 2 was very good. As I said, if I was looking that's what I'd buy.
Bigman has been looking, he's apparently bought a Jolida JD9 rather than the NVA Phono 2 :roll:
Has he found a private seller that gives a 30 day trial and no-quibble refund? ;)

If he bought a Phono 2, Marco & Fireybum would shoot themselves in a suicide pact.

To be fair Biggy, the Doc has a very valid point. When it comes to consistency, you are sadly lacking. You couldn't post your Huddersfield bake-off finding on AoS any quicker, then when they didn't match the general consensus from other attendees, your opinion changed quicker than Marco editing one of his own posts. :naughty:

Oh dear Biggy, have you been a naughty boy? Now who'd have thought eh? Is this the same Biggy who didn't even introduce himself to the Doc in Huddersfield, but who is now able to pass comment on his real life persona? Its little wonder nobody outside of AoS take you seriously. This wouldn't be the phantom bake-off whisper by PM of old AoS town? :naughty: :naughty:

Hey, Bigman!

You must have golden ears. You prefer the Jolida, but haven't heard it yet :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ask Doc if he will build you a Phono 2 with a couple of valve holders on top :roll:

I haven't said it's better? FFS.

I said I want to go down the valve route and as this has valves it's nearer to my goal.

If it sounds naff will you be able to return it to the seller?

First up Eric,

It was ME who introduced myself to the Doc and I have about 5 witnesses!!!! so you might want to check that comment before spouting off,

Second of all, my opinion hasn't changed since the bakeoff. I posted my thoughts, people didn't agree, that's fine. I haven't said anything contrary to my writeup, only clarified what my thoughts were, which, as was pointed out, may not have been conveyed as well on paper as they were in my head.

Also, I haven't passed on comment as far as I am aware on the doc in person. As previously stated, I said he looked like quite an ill man, which I didn't know at the time of meeting him that he actually was/is.

You weren't there Eric, so be careful about making assumptions about who did what with who.

I introduced myself to the doc in front of 5 people, yet to you it's a fact that I didn't lol.
