Haha I'll give it some thought. As you could probably guess the costs have slowly gone up anyway so I guess a bit more won't hurt :lol:

I'm guessing I'm probably one of the folk on the naughty step for not providing a review so apologies. No excuses just that I'm not that great on extolling the virtues, or otherwise, of any kit that I have.

I borrowed the starter kit with my intention that I'd go P90sa/A40 as a replacement for my Meridian kit that I'd had for ages as part of an AV setup. I'd not used it as such for ages and wanted to simplify what I had. The NVA kit performed very well indeed and, as said above, I'm not comfortable using fancy words to describe what I think I'm hearing but to use the phrase often heard here everything was musical.

I'm not saying my old kit was bad or that this was a night and day revelation but there was something making me want to listen to more music and that's what I did. Take into account the cost differentials starts another story.....

On top of this, in conversations with The Doc, I was told my speakers weren't a particularly easy load, I think the term used was "horrid" :-) but even so the little boxes seemed to have no issues as far as I could tell.

To cut a long story short circumstances at home have put the P90sa etc on the back burner although I am wanting to sort my 2nd system out so that will be using the P20/A20.

Big thumbs up from me and apologies for lack of flouncy words....
