2. No spamming or shilling
Early signs are promising and the fact there are more upgrades available should mean it can get better.
It was never going to be anything different was it? Why he simply doesn't stop faffing about and save up for the Phono 2/extra PSU and be done with it? Problem is that if he did, the smoke rising from Wrexham would be visible from space

I blame HiFi World magazine a lot for this, testing valvey and other unheard-of stuff that few people buy in the real world, that really isn't very good out there and that then gets sold on at huge depreciation for the original buyer when he (usually a 'he') cottons on. The fact that HFW seemed to like it a few years ago gives it some kind of kudos and so the piece of kit does the rounds of the few dozen forum readers before it finally breaks under the strain. On the opposite end, you have to acknowledge Naim, as such is the cachet now around this brand, any of their gear fetches silly money for what it really is - and of course it doesn't usually fail until the circuits drift so badly off that the sound is so terribly bad it's totally unlistenable to everyone who hears it.

He's now got his own dedicated thread titled "New toy - Jolida JD9 MKII" and even though the unit has only been at chez Biggy for barely a day, the plan is to tube roll the unit tomorrow! The mind really does boggle. How on earth can you get a feel for something new in your system and want to tinker so soon? Given that Il Duce likes to modify everything he has, so that in his own mind, it has a superior edge over what everybody else uses, Biggy and his golden ears really have landed at his ideal home. Its a match made in WrexhamClassicrock wrote: ↑Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:56 pmWhat would any sensible person do? Buy a Phono 2 or remain on AOS. Of course I am assured that there is no problem owning NVA or talking about it on AOS from the owner. So why are members scared to buy NVA or mention it? Perhaps he is scared of upsetting Firebottle even more?
