Re: Is it OK for the government to knowingly break international law?

On the subject of breaking the law, I've been told by more than one person - although I don't know if this is true or bullshit - that there is some law that prohibits the use of razor wire. The prisons in England and Wales use razor wire. A lot. If they didn't they'd need to increase staffing level...

No.
And it seems they are revelling in a deluded sense of machismo around the whole thing. Which I find terrible to behold.

Makes commercial sense to me - business is business and if it gets NVA out there and listened to by punters then the amps will do the rest.
Well said.
It's your brand now Paul. But honouring the past ethos of NVA seems important to you too. Its a tricky balance, I'm sure!

Re: Monacor SP-310CX build

Makes perfect sense. I never used to pay much attention to box shape. Winisd gives you suggested dimensions when designing a box. I think they use the golden ratio.

Re: Monacor SP-310CX build

Good work Doc :clap: I am interested to know why you went for that shape box ? It's just a cuboid. Its proportions are a bit distorted by the camera lens in that last photo. The proportions were determined by my wanting it to sit on top of my old speakers, and wanting it to be as low as possible.

Happiest I've been with my system. Time and effort spent fine-tuning things is a good investment. https://i.imgur...
