It has now been fully removed, so it wasn't an official statement just one of the eeediots who love playing with me and NVA. I will remove the posts here later seeing as they removed their end. BUT perhaps they should take more control over that page, it should not be allowed to happen.

As can be seen now part of it has been removed.

It just serves to show the concerted effort some people in this industry are making to try and damage NVA, I wonder why, am I too much of a threat to their slurp.
I think it is a double edged sword, the slurpers are concerned about superior NVA products costing far less and this forum exposing what is going on. I note there is another real review. Needless to say the item is from Elite Audio and the thread has been immediately locked. I will give it a read for some festive entertainment. :lol:

May be I am being a bit simplistic here but how can one man making amplifiers in his spare room possibly be a threat to a whole industry? I suspect it isn't the product that they are worried about but the fact that the selling price is showing up the huge difference between what everybody else is charging and the real cost of production.

A little transparency from the Hi-Fi industry would not go a miss.

The industry is small and shrinking. The threat must be seen in this context. Also, I think new NVA products might be seen as a threat to second hand products from the big names (no punn intended).

The behaviour of certain Wam, AOS & PFM members (and owners) is driven by one thing: Doc is a threat to their egos...which is a far more serious problem (for them) than anything else.

The new real review is associated with the real review product commented on in page 140. By the same logic, as the price is £400 it would have left the factory in China for less than £40.

Nearer £4, you should go and look at Alibaba trade section to see real China factory prices. Even ebay prices are 3 or 4 times the direct bulk prices.

The "decent" thing for them to do would be to PUBLICLY punish the perpetrator with a huge (if not a lifetime) ban to put other people off of doing similar things. If they're sincere about stopping it of course.

They would then have to admit I am under attack on the forum, which explains why I was binned in the first place, and on PFM, and on TAS. AoS was the same but didn't need to be as Marco did the work for them. I responded to being attacked so *I* was booted, the very same people saw their success and carried on with every forum I joined until they hit a blank wall with Lurcher, who refused to boot me. The truth of the matter is now becoming more into awareness largely because of that, but the original miscarriages of justice have never been corrected. Now the only thing (lie) they can try to hang on me is the fire thing, which is untrue didn't happen as portrayed, no nva fire, all a Marco construct to try and damage NVA that has become a meme.

A Google search reveals that the item can be bought for USD 379,still steep, as opposed to the £400 Elite Audio are charging.
