Just wish more members would get a bit of backbone and be prepared to walk or get booted.

My thoughts exactly. Marco is the cause of all this nonsense and It is not difficult for anyone with half a brain to see through him.

And northwest of Pegasus

I know its world cup football and summer, but even so I have no loans booked. Once again every forum apart from Audio Talk and Audio Addicts have had no mention of it. It would be useful if some members informed other forums about it. Some people of course will call it selling, but not me, as I have said over and over and over and over and....................again I am only interested in people *hearing* NVA and then posting results from it. If NVA is as good as I think then sales take care of themselves. BUT I am sure the stooooopid allegations and dissing will be there as a pollutant.

Remember if England win the world cup I am giving a celebratory 25% discount on ALL product even the starter kit.

Well we now have proper pictures of the venue - what a feckin' waste of time - it is a miracle any differences showed, and I can tell you for certainty most would not have been shown up. FFS you need a PA for that hall so the Krell was a good choice for power. The sheer oddity of shape and size in that hall makes any real comparison a waste of time. Who has a listening room like that. Owston is bad enough but that is daft.

I like a bit of humour, and you've clearly gone to a lot of effort...post a proper pic of the t-shirt.

Good spot Savvy, shows up the agenda and why I told him where to stick himself and his phono stage - does he want to be a proper hi-fi designer / manufacturer or a clown?

For those who can't see it just download the photo and enlarge the reflection in the mirror.

It looks like a room we are seeking to book for a party next month with a disco. :lol:

From Bigboy - "It was very easy to hear differences between the phonostages and has been mentioned, the system certainly showed everything in its full glory".

Let me correct it for you so we can have some reality - It was very easy to hear some differences between the phonostages and has been mentioned, the system certainly didn't show everything in its full glory. Why do you think opinions were so divided and in some case differences were impossible to hear. It was not that there were no differences - there are ALWAYS differences - you just couldn't hear them.

You see you only know what you know and what you were *allowed* to hear. For me from 40 years of experience I *know* the room and the dem system lost you lots of differences. A PA is not the way to find out how a hi-fi should produce music. OK Macca likes a home PA, slightly modified by a NVA passive pre (by the way was that there and just hidden from view so it couldn't be photo-ed or talked about, or was another pre used). The TT was fine if for me just not my taste. At a bake off nearly 10 years ago in Epping even my old Pioneer PL71 pissed on it, grey and boring was the general opinion. Best there was a Garrard 401 with the PL71 a close second. Linn LP12 caused great humour and distaste.

Bizarrely they seem to think these results are an ultimate comparison - sadly completely deluded. MCRU's venue, even if slightly on the too large size, would be far better and show far more and better quality differences.
