I'm zoidburg / Ben - ive been a member on your fine forum for a little while now but my post count here is minimal ( il try to rectify this hopefully) . Im also on other forums under the same name so u may have seen me about. Anyway for now I'm just looking at a new phono stage and obviously the recent bake offs suggest that I at least listen to an NVA unit.
Is anyone local to Liverpool that I could trouble for a listen maybe? I'm happy to travel but also very keen to hear one in my own system if anyone is local.
I'm aware of the 30 day return policy but was hoping for an initial listen before laying out any funds really, and of course meeting some fellow enthusiasts along the way too.
There is also a Bake-off in Huddersfield this Sunday at MCRU shop, but the only nva phono stage going is a mm Phono1.
One significant benefit, ime, to compensate for the idea of shelling out up front, is that if you decide the NVA is for you then you obviously keep the unit that you have been listening to.
I had s Schiit Bifrost dac loan unit and loved it. Ordered a new one...and it never sounded as good as the loan unit. Sold it after a year.
