Good luck.
Thanks but sold a while ago.

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

The English Nationalist Party (formerly known as the Convservative party) is morally and intellectually spent. The minimum of press/ media scrutiny of their inept, corrupt, cruel and dogmatic approach is shameful. Of course it all started with the big lie that is Brexit and once you are in deep ther...

Leaving NVA amps switched on - in the modern world of sustainability?

Just wondering what other users are doing in the face of environmental and sustainability moral dilemmas and of course energy bills etc? I leave my power amps on but I’ve been recently thinking I shouldn’t…though I recall RD mentioning that regularly switching on power amps is more likely to cause i...

Re: I've done my own head in.........again

If you want a neat, unobtrusive home entertainment system hub then a Mac Mini is hard to beat. You can run these headless using apps like Screens or you can just use a monitor/TV. Connect a USB dac of your choice (anything from as simple as an Audioquest Dragonfly will be great) and you can then use...

Re: LP12

An LP12 - more than any component I know - is very likely to induce audio based neurosis due to the infinite number of tweaks and changes that are possible due to its modular design. Great it you like tweaking/ audio neurosis but if you want the simple life part it out and sell it for good money. A ...

Re: Cartridge

I owned a Dynavector moving coil cartridge that developed a low ride height after about 3 years of relatively heavy use. The manufacturer said it was suspension sag, which also caused the cantilever to move to one side. I was living in a warm fairly humid climate at the time which probably contribut...

Re: Hi-Fi Honesty

@Karatestu has it about right……

To quote the great modern day philosopher, Michael Corleone, “Senator. We are all part of the same hypocrisy…..”

P50SA mk2, latest spec

I’ve just acquired a nearly new P50SA mk2, which is to the latest spec. It sounds really really good, open detailed but not bright - very natural, typical NVA I’ve noticed when I change the volume I can hear a faint noise through the speakers - sort of quiet rustle. Is that normal for the new SA vol...
