Re: Turn up the treble

All I want to say is, there is a huge difference between a good parametric equaliser and a simple treble control.

Re: Transformer Va.

Geoff, I think that the first paragraph of your response sums up my view of objectivism. I can see the temptation to be an objectivist but to my mind it ultimately does not make sense. Perhaps one day in the future when we have a greater understanding…… Thinking about it, I can see why it might be ...

but 'Direct Out' is more, um, direct. :grin:
Yes, that would be the same as the outputs on may Denon CD player.

Re: Integrated Amplifier Markings?

Does anyone really need a tape out these days ? Yes Although it might be more usefully termed “direct out”. 'Line Out' perhaps? Tape in & out is a bit archaic in the digital era. My only problem with calling it "Line Out" is that the main output is also a line out, "Direct Out&qu...

Re: Integrated Amplifier Markings?

We are designing cases for our new integrated amplifier. Earlier NVA integrated amps had 'Tape, Aux, Video, Tuner, Disc, CD. Would you keep the same? Would you change the names? Would you do away with the names and just have numbers? Would you have very minimal markings - just input and volume? Wha...

Re: Transformer Va.

I lost my NVA virginity to a Phono 1. Since then I’ve had a Phono 2, a Phono 2 with twin psus, a Phono 2 with a bbpsu and I bought a second bbpsu to get to a Phono 3. Unfortunately Richard passed away before the conversion could be done. At every upgrade the music sounded more like people playing m...
