Hello,

If possible I'd like to come along to this.

I can bring an Arcam irDAC-2 and a cheap yet very impressive little Chinese Sabre USB DAC with a linear PSU. I'd be coming from Gateshead.
Cool.

Look forward to meeting you.

I'll be sending out full details, by PM, next week.

Re: AoS

TheMoon was part of the complaint that resulted in Marco being forced to remove several threads (we still have screenshots of those threads).

Doc will be able to help re technical compatibility with the NVA power amps (there may be some relevant threads in the archive, too). I'd be surprised if it got n...
