Very well done Doc. That will show the nay sayers. More NVA kit out there = more happy owners = more people to spread the word = more positive comments on the other forums (except AOS) = wider acceptance of the value for money and superior musical qualities of NVA gear = a happy Doc. :grin: :grin: :grin:

I hope the profit on this 20K does not push you over the VAT threshold. VAT is the devil's own tax :angry-steamingears:

Glad i got my doped 12 inchers before this bf madness :grin:

PLEASE NOTE - I am putting up a separate thread "Black Friday orders request for delayed delivery" for those who want delayed shipment. Please go there and give your ebay name and order and when you want delivery. Anyone not listed there then stuff will be sent to when it is ready, as to not do so will be another source for confusion.

As someone who took part in the BF madness and with a considerably lighter wallet following it, and this morning having dived in yet again while watching England Vs Tonga at 5.00am, I wondered once you have had chance to digest the results of the event, it would be interesting to know if you considered it a success given that the sale items were generally -30% on "normal" retail vs the increased workload and presumably increased stress over the coming weeks and months building the gear.

I will tell you after I have built it. Both you all and ebay will have to be patient re delivery. So please no requests via ebay about delivery. As I said twice as big as my biggest estimate. So twice as long to build.

I will tell you how I feel after I have built and sent it all, maybe 30% was too much and I should have done 20%, but I want lots of new users and lots of gear out there for people to talk about. REMEMBER I want reviews of it from all of you

I for one, Doc, am delighted to have joined the NVA fraternity. The 30% off dId exactly what you hoped - attracted new customers. I am one and there will, I’m sure, have been others. Thanks for the opportunity. I’m sure it will do much to spread the word about NVA gear and your approach to your customers sales. I’m looking forward to being part of it all.

Congrats on the successful sales hump, took all the will power in the world to resist hitting on that AP70,
just settled on some LS3 cables (was teetering on LS5's) to go with my stashed SSP's.

P.S. was looking to buy the Phono 2 but wasn't available.

As I say we will be into January (probably) before I ship it all.
