Now available but ATM not on ebay only on the forum here, as said £300.00 as I am keeping this and the P20 and A20 and LS2 and SC as virtual loss leaders. People buying will suffer from shock at how they have been ripped off for decades. GOOD. That is one of the main purposes for the existence of NVA - to show up the slurpers.

A complete hi-fi system including cables (less source) for £600.00. With a 30 day return if unhappy, and a trade in "no loss" policy for two years from new.

THIS IS THE CAUSE OF THE FORUM POLITICS NOT ME - they are scared silly about it being publicised. watch, anyone tries to publicise this on another forum it (and probably you) wont last very long.

The system, with a decent DAC, costs less than five audiophile fuses. Or less than a MCRU kettle lead. :lol:

The “HSF secret tip” DAC with a LPSU is 55-60, the SC from DAC to preamp 30. If you have a latop, then it’s 690 plus a digital cable between the laptop and the DAC, and you have a complete hifi system. Amazing.

Thing is Doc will never put the slurp dealers out of business. More likely Richer Sounds if they moved slightly up market which I think they are doing. Wonder why they get so paranoid about a small operation like NVA? Their overpriced stuff must sound pretty ordinary and they know it.

I think an issue is new NVA gear making second hand equipment, which would have cost a lot new, look over priced in comparison. Although the market is shrinking the second hand one is not.

I have the production cases waiting for collection, and a pair of those will be my demo ones for shows and bakeoffs. So my prototypes are available as a bargain. No change from production ones, identical apart from no printing on the case no front logo or back inf, early Cubes were the same.

£250.00, obviously preferred to be collected.

I also have a pair of mk1 from my wife's system that are now available for £180.00, again collected if poss.

Good opportunities to find out what Cubes are about. Normal NVA terms, return for refund if unhappy, and no loss upgrade within two years of purchase.

Doc, is there any minimum height that we should be looking to have above these?

I ask as I fancy a pair for my office but the current boxes sit only a foot underneath the pitch roof

It is suck and see I am afraid, I haven't tried them like that so I haven't a clue. It will just cost return postage to try, that is why we do it.

Just a quick question Doc? I am thinking of swapping my original mk1 Cubettes for something a bit further up the Cube line soon but do they have any trade-in value?

I am guessing the trade in scheme would not apply and it would be Ebay but just checking.

Yes of course I would, it is our commitment. Up to two years you get what you paid, after that I have a look (lots of photos) and make an offer. The original Cubettes still have good value they make good music.

First batch of Cubette printed cases arrive next week.
