There is nothing controversal about your intro, it is just the nva way.

"price has" or "prices have"

Other than that, it looks good.

'diliske' = 'dislike' and not sure if 'a equivalent' should be 'an equivalent' or not.

Doc, might you considered rephrasing the 2nd para. You can still sell your benefits and highlight how you feel the industry has lost its way leading to a focus on margin and high tickets rather than offering everyman-value and real world musicality, but at the same time not alienate those punters who might read it and feel that their patronage of their current hifi dealer makes them feel 'part of the industry' (solely as a purchaser , end user).


"At NVA we're not fans of the way that the hifi industry has changed in response to market pressures. As customer numbers have dwindled retailers have responded by trying to sell ever more expensive equipment in an attempt to gain maximum margin from every transaction. That's not the NVA way. We build gear that offers performance that can't be argued with and value for money that simply can't be matched. Even if we weren't a direct seller our gear would still be bargain priced. We've no retailers, no distributors and no investors looking for a big return. We just build great gear that offers maximum sound-per-pound. It's a simple proposition that has kept us in business for _______ years."

Maybe....?

I have it fitting an A4 page exactly, so other things will need to be removed, but I will look at it. I will print it out in volume to take to the show with the price list on the other side. So needs to be one sheet. But thanks for your effort.

+1. Best let the product do the talking without alienating some potential customers and other exhibitors.

Some people need a kick up the arse, they don't like it too bad. I would prefer to be me than pretend me. If I word it that way then I mean it that way.

It is like saying to me, if you are nice to Marco he might buy an amp, well fck him! it is his loss and problem not mine.

Can't make up my mind whether to take the CD player or just run from my computer using the Doc Chinese Cheap Dac. I doubt I will get decent usable no glitch wi-fi in the hotel as so many people will be using it.

Didn't you say that visitors could play their own CD's? - you would need the CD player anyway.
