I had the pleasure of owning an Exclame 100 and a Predator. Amazing stuff!

What replaced the VA goodies
Time to get back to when I enjoyed listening......no more upgrading, more of a headache than a pleasure

Hello Juventino

All the VA goodies are still available and as always, un-matched in their respective price points!

To have a look at the list of models and prices, see my web site ' Sounds Natural' under the commercial members section in this forum.

I recently got a VA 802 from Schalk . A pleasure to deal with very clear in his answers to my questions .

Not knowing much about hi-fi I was always under the impression that an amp could not change source sounds , but either I was very wrong or I have a serious case of buyers bias as things are sounding so much better now .

Where is a head scratching emoji when you need one ?

Definitely wont be my last VA product going on the many threads like these , and interactions with Schalk .  :2thumbs:

Just wondering how many forum members have discovered the joys of Valve Audio kit in their stereo or AVR setups?


2 x Predator Integrated amps here. Wonderfully musical, I'm hooked for life.
Whisper (MM & MC) too, for my massive vinyl collection.
