Precisely, Lynsey posts are a bit more than mere ephemera

I think they banned him, Lindsay is genuine, he doesn't have to agree with all we tend to do. He definitely would not fit in at AoS in terms of ethics, but Marco has said that (in email to me) he cannot understand why he is member here as he likes valves.
I've never joined AoS. Never wanted to. And if I did at this stage, I'd expect to get banned very quickly, as I've taken the piss out of Marco from time to time.

Really strange logic. That someone who enjoys using SET's shouldn't be a member here.
Like this is some sort of gang or tribe or clique or NVA Owners Club or something? :grin:

OK, HFS is a collection of people with at least a passing interest in Hi-fi, most of whom are NVA owners. But beyond that there's scope for the membership here having different tastes and opinions.

100% agree with Lindsay's post above. I too use big Tannoys and Valves, but that certainly did not stop me from appreciating the quality of the build and the sonic qualities of The Phono 1&2.

Do I intend to buy NVA pre and power amps, probably not, am I going to buy a Phono 2 you bet I am.

Can't quite see why any of that should stop me posting and enjoying the forum and meeting the lads who do use Docs gear for a chew of the fat at bake off's and the like.

Well I do spend a lot more time listening to music than watching TV...

...which does leave me with a fair amount of time where I can multi-task. Listen to music and type messages on Internet forums.


And it's up to you. You might think I'm here to expose "rip-offs, spamming and shilling". In which case I'd have to concede that I might not be the best person to be objective about my motivation in being an active member here.




The main reasons that I joined HFS as a very early member, all those years ago were because:
1 I respected the Doc's experience and knowledge on hi-fi
2 I was disgusted with the way that Flatpopely, YN and SQ agitated to get the Doc thrown off pfm
3 I felt some natural affinity with the Doc, because of pfm forum run-ins I'd had with those 3

I don't think I joined this forum because I wanted to expose unethical behaviour in the hi-fi world. It was more a case of "I'm not enjoying playing with the pfm gang. I'll go and play with the new HFS gang instead". (metaphorically speaking)

Alas the great membership scandal continues. You continue to fabricate members for all to see but nobody says anything except hs .


I estimate that 75 percent of your membership is false. Now if you were a genuine forum something would be said. However the fact your are a joke selling entity it is tolerated

A new real review has appeared. Although not mentioned, a google search will reveal that the distributor is Elite Audio. The review is totally meaningless as there are no comparisons with competition at the price and below. The amplifier costs a grand. I wonder how much it cost to import it for China and how much all the slurpers are taking out of the £1,000 pot.

If they are selling it for £1000 then the China factory ex works price will be under £100.

Scalford show replacement - It seems, so I have been told, that the piss stained blanket has told a couple of member of Wigwam that if anyone lists NVA equipment on their room equipment list, then they wont be given a room. If this is true is it now an official rule that NVA has been banned from the shows, if so it needs to be made public.
