Hi Zig,

Sorry for the slow response; as you say, this is a very small site and I had to do a bunch of work related stuff yesterday (today I have to do a bunch of family related stuff.....). I did like you introduction post, very good indeed and made me laugh 8-) can't remember when a hi-fi forum did that to me! I totally understand and relate to your comments regarding moderation etc - at least I authorised your account promptly (I hope)?

Welcome to NS1000M owners club - I'm still absolutely loving mine! So, as I understand it, you have imported a refurbished pair from Japan to Denmark (your home)? Would that be from the renowned Kenrick Sounds? I don't know them very well but they seem to specialise in a kind of 'classic car' restoration where they change as little as possible (other than upgrading the finish and changing the rear terminals) - very different to the project I undertook.

Is that picture of their awaiting stands by any chance?

Thanks YNWaN for the welcome.

Yes - it's Kenrick Sound. And yes you were very prompt.

More on the stands in the new thread.

Hi!

I'm Paul.

I'm based in the North East. I've been 'into hifi' for around 35 years.

I've owned many, many brands of kit including Linn, Naim, Rega, Musical Fidelity, Royd, Proac, Usher, Harbeth, Sugden, Mission...too many to list. My set up nowadays is: NVA BMU / WTL Versalex / Transfiguration Axia /NVA Phono2 w/ 2nd PSU / GSP Revelation C / Vortexbox Appliance NAS Server / Sonore microRendu USB streamer w/ LPSU / Chord 2Qute USB dac / NVA P90sa / NVA A80MK2 (bass) / NVA A70 MK2 (tweeters) / NVA Cube 1 / NVA TIS MK1 / NVA SSPMK2 / NVA LS6 / NVA AP10H (& 1x additional PS) / Audeze LCD-2, Grado SR225

I'm a regular contributor at HFS. I attend bake-offs and I have held a couple of bake-offs at my place (you can read about these at HFS). I'm here because I enjoy chatting, now and then, with people whose opinions I don't necessarily share. From challenge and stimulation comes learning (I hope)...and it's only hifi, right? So, what could possibly go wrong...

An interesting combination of gear :). How do you find the Glasshouse TVC?

Thanks Sq it took more years than I care to remember putting it all together. The price this stuff goes for these days makes my eyes stand out on stalks sometimes :D

Glass house Tvc is a good preamp I like it a lot, its been in the system for about 5 years but has recently been relegated to the subs bench by the P50sa.
I owned a Glasshouse 300b too but that's gone now in favour of Nick Gorhams 300b monoblocks. The real star on my big Tannoys though is the Bel Canto 845 valve set amp. Most folk think Bel Canto is just about Class D but this almost 40 watt Single ended amp is truly fabulous
