Seems a lot of forum members have a preference for Valve Audio for stereo setups. As per the poll on another thread. I would love to own one, one day.

I'll have to work on getting those numbers up a bit, times are tough. Thanks for making me aware of the fact  :2thumbs:

You slacking Schalk, all this time you have had under the lockdown those numbers should have been much higher.



Listening put on hold for a while, but end game reached. Couldnt be happier with my system. Next will be new room tweaks.

^ Think it's rather a matter of quite willing and very able, but demand for new stuff then, and now, not what Schalk and similar would like!   :sd:

And might I add with humility, You have been one of the most accommodating customers I have ever had. Being on the receiving end of my slow service has been the plight of many, but something like 5 months was stretching it a bit. (No comments Agaton  :angel:) However, you have become one of the few beta testers of VA in that this is the very latest iteration of the pretty well known and loved "older" Predator. Yes, it looks the same, even the pcb layout is reminiscent of the up to now model. But that is where it ends, and I have to add that the changes made, albeit mainly to provide for CE compliance, has really made me question my sanity ( and yours for sucking it out with me without demanding return of payment). It really was touch and go or I just reverted back to the old design. Beware, there might still be a red herring or two up the sleeve of that baby, waiting to spring a surprise on you which shall backfire on me too  :ROFLMAO:

Hopefully as she runs the gauntlet there with you, I can carry on and complete another two owing. By the time those come close to completion we'll know if the Big Bang has happened or not, in which case I can do some minute changes before sending out to waiting, foot tapping customers.

Thank you for your patience Boet, your rewards shall grow as the amp grows and blossom into just music.

That list of amplifier owners is in my opinion, way out, I alone have sold more VA amps than that by an order of several magnitudes!

Or perhaps Agaton is on to something, about humans being owned by their VA amps!
