There is some clarity emerging, though.

Even the 'bollocks' coming out of the 'arses' is now helping people to understand what has really been going on.

I'm not a member of the other forums and I'm not particularly interested in being so, so can someone please tell me what the hell someone on a poxy internet forum can do or say that stops someone organising a bloody bake off!!
I was trying to work out whether I might have been able to get the Phono 3 there.
Audio Grail "Sable" Garrard 401 with constrained layer plinth / SME V / Benz Gullwing SLR, Phono 3 + 2X BBPSU - MEGA!, NVA P90sa, NVA Cubix-Pro, (top & mid sections). (Oh and a Pioneer BDP LX70A when I just want some background music!)

I'll tell you one thing.
If I ever see the words "polluting" "bile" "worthless" "ranting" again from anyone. I swear I will reach through cyberspace and ........... :angry-screaming: :angry-screaming:
I'ts quite frankly pathetic.
An individual RD) is singled out for relentless attack and anyone coming to defence of said individual, is also attacked and threatened in the hope of silencing them.
People you think are decent, turn on you, call you deluded, sychophantic, one of Dunn's disciples. A bunch of tantrum throwing toddlers is what they are.
Well I have a message for those people. GO FSCK YOURSELVES!

My eyes have been opened over recent months to both the sheer intensity and the blind ferocity of the right wing style hatred of the Doc. It simply beggars belief. The nastiness has had the opposite effect to that intended and has both shone a searchlight on, and exposed these creeps and stalkers for the psychotic madmen they really are. Their so-called opinions on anything are utterly bereft of any merit, and deserve to be put out with the trash, which is where their opinions belong.
DIY NVA amplification ( roughly equivalent to NVA A60) BTE Designs passive preamp, BTE Designs Lenco L75 turntable, Rega R200 arm, Goldring E3 cartridge, NVA Phono 1
Musical Fidelity M1 DAC, AppleTV4 with Apple Music subscription, ripped CDs streamed via WD MyCloud Home Duo NAS, with PLEX media server.

Spot on Steve :clap:

And to those delusional fools who say that the Doc bring this all on himself, the key is to understanding the reasons why HFS exists and why he fights his corner in the manner he does. Problem is, given the comments I've seen some of the main protagonists spout here and elsewhere, I seriously think there is a complete lack of mental capacity to see past their own warped agendas and try to understand the bigger picture. It could even be said that there is simply no appetite for some to fully appreciate the history, whilst from the relative safety of anonymity, they continue to sir up the hornets nest. See Biggy, this analogy works from both sides of the arguement. :whistle:

Bottom line, I'm no NVA fanboy or a Doc sycophant, but as has been clearly seen by the recent independent appraisal of NVA kit, its damn good, both in terms of value for money, but more importantly for me, in terms of what it provides with music reproduction. :clap:
AOS, the forum where member signatures are almost as big as their egos, or Marco’s waistline :clap:

Quite so Eric. :)

Thing is, as I see things, some of Mr Dunns biggest detractors don't hate the man, or his products. Just his internet persona.
