They are indeed, I paid £450 i think, (its not the most expensive thing people are modding) I choose it for remote control, high current output and a review that said it was the best amp upto 3k. Yes we can ignore the review part but theres no doubt its really well made._D_S_J_R_ wrote: ↑Sat Jan 20, 2018 12:26 pmI was sorely tempted as these amps are still worth a good few hundred quid on the used market, but it's your property to do with as you please, so who the feck am I to have a go about what you've done?
The LDR preamps I've read about have massively complex control circuitry as ideally you need two per channel I think and the tracking of any pair is abysmal as they're cycled up and down. I honestly believe that a simple film pot is better (less is more, right?) but there are power amps out there that do need a line buffer to drive them for best sonics and minimal hum. NVA is NOT one of these and they're incredibly quiet with passive pre flat out.
I dont know what constitutes "massively complex" it fits in the palm of my hand, i suppose it is compared to a pot though.
Theres also no evidence of abysmal tracking on these, as I said, its not another lightspeed clone.
