Tenby is 35 Miles further west than Kidwelly Col. It would be be a real honour to meet you if you could make it.


What part of you is Welsh? :-?

Change at Swansea for Kidwelly where I could pick you up, either Arriva trains Wales or Great Western run services.

Alternatively, I could collect you and Colin from Swansea for a 40 minute drive to Kidwelly. Well ahem, about 35 minutes in my Alfa, you'll have to hunker down in the seats though. :lol:

I'd love to be able to help out with this as I have a complete NVA setup here already, but the difficulties are just too prohibitive I'm afraid. My work is stupidly busy these days so I wouldn't know when I'd be available, the hi-fi is in the lounge so I'd have to turf the rest of the family out for the day and then there's the "RACK!" which looks great - (for the lounge) - but is a complete PITA for connecting up. Sorry.

This does sound like a good day. I have free train travel and a gang of old mates to catch up with / stay with in Essex, so I would be up for a trip dan sarf...

I asked but I was banned from attending the TAS event, and I think even NVA gear was banned there - mad feckers ain't they :angry-fire:

How about your friends at HiFi Answers, I presume they have a listening room, they would definitely not be NVA fan boys. They could include LFD to join in the fun they are good amps. Are they based in London, that would be good. Also we could gather a few pairs of ears from the forums, if there is room.

It could be promoted on the other forums but on AoS you would have to put *** instead of NVA :lol:

Apart from that I have one other person to ask who has a big enough room for it in Herne Bay (that's not too far) and we might pull Paul Messenger in to do some listening with us as he lives less than a mile away.
