    They weren't wrong about everything

    okay they probably were but it is interesting that you should invoke Godwin's Law on this subject.

    Discussion of NVA equipment is allowed, discussion of some other related topics is not. That's more than you will get in most dictatorships. Sorry, meant audio forums.

    Haha...

    My experience of other forums is that we (the mod team/admin) here are rather more tolerant/lenient than what you mostly get elsewhere!

    For example, I once joined a Mercedes owners club forum, and disputed a moderating decision, to which I was told by the site owner, and I quote: "Moderating decisions are final and not up for debate, so refrain from entering into any form of dialogue ". At least we LISTEN to folks here first, giving them a chance to respond, then do what we think is right.

    Btw, having checked the edits, as far as I can see, no rules have been broken, in reference to mentioning RD. You need to read the rules again, folks....

    What's prohibited is RD being mentioned outside of a hi-fi context, especially in reference to his 'forum', not in here in this instance, in a hi-fi context, as designer of the amps/MD of the company in question.

    As an example, this IS permitted: "Richard Dunn, owner of NVA and maker of hi-fi amplifiers", or similar. This isn't permitted: "Richard Dunn, who owns and runs HFS, and is a total [insert chosen expletive here]", or similar.

    I trust alles klar now? It's not difficult

    Also note that I (occasionally) reserve the right to mention his forum and/or him in any context I like, if I consider it pertinent to do so, especially when, as sometimes happens, defending myself and/or AoS against serious false allegations/accusations.

    However, 99% of the time, that won't happen, and I'll simply default to the stipulated rules.

    Wow, didn't realize that this was such a topic. I was going to say that I was once an owner of the bigger Tresham 302 with DR1 Pre. I had the Pre upgraded to DR3 by Tannoy who had taken over Tresham. I always thought the power amp was better than the pre. I owned this pair for around 10 years before the power amp expired in a great flash and a bang! A bit like this thread I suppose.

    They were very powerful pro amps and the re-badged Tannoy version got an excellent review in HiFi Choice (I have the review). Many amp makes fell by the wayside if they were Naim priced back then and where I might accept it for the old bolt-up stuff, which was sweet and 'musical,' at least when new, the hard-as-nails (with loads of odd order and crossover distortion to back it up) 'CB' range wasn't worthy, although we ignorant youngsters out for sonic excitement lapped it up for a while. Today, practically all BC Naim will have been serviced and they do respond well to this, at least for a while and current Naim sounds nothing like them, at least until two or three years ago...

    I suspect it's horses for courses. Very powerful amps like the Tresham work really well in pro circles, where extra power means unburstable extra dynamic range most often. I suspect at low 'domestic' volume levels, a simpler design would be better - less circuit gubbins for the signal to pass through perhaps?
