Fireybum and Bigboy are having a phono stage bake-off at Fireybums place on 25th Nov. Now how is this different from the one just held in Durham. Well no product that could challenge their units is being allowed to attend, it will be an in house, spam and shill ridden stitch up, the same as they were before they made the mistake of attending Uddersfield bake-off and being (gently and not so gently) pissed on by three other phono stages. Watch for the results posts.

Reality - not!

The difference is that impartiality will be totally absent.

Bigman80 is a member here but has chosen not to advertise his bake-off here. He would have been welcome to attend my bake-off. Seems we / NVA are not wanted at his bake-off. Sadly, that does seem to tell us everything.

Any AOS members lurking here want to compare their Firebottle to NVA? Join here under a different name and PM me.

They've got the date slightly wrong. It should be the 23rd, as that's when the next round of Europa League fixtures are due to take place. :happy-cheerleaderkid:

Guess who managed 13 posts yesterday 7 of them in three(ish) words.
Quality ownership here. Could the HiFi world impeach the owner the fate of those who dictate.
