hi Jason, thanks! That's right!
My name's Sergio, living in the north of italy, near Milan, long time music lover and quite long hifi setup owner, in the recent days (i.e. the last 4 yrs ) i've discovered NVA products, and since that moment i think, imho,they're the most engaging music machines i've heard in my setup, they do make the difference. And ive found in the previous subjectivist forum and i hope also in this one great guys to talk with about music and other stuff.

Poka!

I'm Shane. Been living in Southall with the family since 1998 (Hence the user name) If there are some skinny members on here looking to get nice and fat, come to Southall and treat yourself to an awesome curry. Southall will take care of you poor skinny members.

Anyway, I live in the nicer part of Southall. So don't take the piss :lol:

I'm Pete, born & bred in the once lovely town of Dover! There are still a few nice bits and I live in one of them - River, just a few metres from the river Dour. I'm sitting watching the swans, ducks and kingfisher as I type but got a couple of friends coming round later to listen to some music as they've not really heard my Phono 2 yet. Got them booked in for a couple of weeks time for the power amp bake-off - A80s v Anatek MB50s!!
Garrard 401 with constrained layer plinth / SME IV / cart under review, Phono 3 + 2X BBPSU - MEGA!, NVA P90sa, NVA A80s & A60, LS6, NVA Cube 1s. (Oh and a Pioneer BDP LX70A when I just want some background music!)

Hi.
I'm Adam, I'm still studying. Got into the world of Hi-Fi about a year ago, discovered NVA in January by checking out very old P60+A60 combo. After lots of work and savings I bought myself A80s and Royds RR1s and I'm really satisfied with what I'm hearing right now. I also got involved in doing some acoustic work in my room, and while being a completely amateur in that I managed to make my room 'sound' a bit better (for me) :mrgreen: I enjoy experiencing art in general, especially music - checking out multiple new albums daily from almost every genre isn't something unusual hehe. I also love travelling around whenever and wherever I can (can't wait for a full motorbike driving license so I can finally do some nice trips with my dad :auto-biker: ). People that have their own philosophy and judge by their own experiences are my authorities, that's why I'm here I guess...

I was involved with the music recording (which was shite tbh, thanks to Decca f*cking it up) but not the video.

Just about finished now - I'm going onto the Board of Examiners for Trinity College of Music when I 'retire' plus some teaching and conducting. Am also hoping to get some sort of work which isn't music-related - having done it professionally for nearly 30 years it would be nice to do some other stuff.
