"Detailed and dynamic with good subtlety, packs a real punch at the bottom end. I have to say that the NVA AP10H turned in a truly superb performance and it can more than hold it's own against competitors at it's price level and above. It is one not to be missed off your shortlist." Chris Frankland, Hi-Fi World
Over the last week I can't stop listening. It seems to get better and better. I don't know how a couple of simple black boxes can set my spine tingling or make such a difference but they do. Words I would use to describe include transparency, space, engagement, attack, emotion. I am so happy I went with NVA again and am absolutely delighted with my purchase. One day I will tell my wife what the money was spent on! Andy. P
"Many people talk about a ‘valve’ sound or a ‘solid state’ sound, because both have their advocates and both have their benefits. That doesn’t have to mean pleasant distortion or added emphasis, simply that some of the best valve amplifiers have a magic touch with vocals and some of the best solid state manage the same with bass, dynamics and transients. The NVA amplifiers seem to offer the best of both worlds". The WAM Forum
Sat here listening to OK Computer, an album I like on vinyl but never could quite relax into the digital version, but now I am back in time and finally my digital front end is singing. Click through albums and Its probably been thirty years since I have heard Wish You Were Here as I loved and remembered. The NVA starter system is amazing value for money, but these Artisan amps are a helicopter ride to the top of the mountain. Pretty much my end game complete. Chris. I.
"That great old classic Groovin' is covered brilliantly by guitarist Peter White...White's guitar was conveyed incisively and precisely with great note shape and body. Percussion was detailed and dynamic and the complex layers of this superb track were well sorted and that weighty, melodic bass line moved well. At the asking price...they (LS7) represent good value and I would recommend them with confidence - and not just for NVA amplifiers!" Chris Frankland, Hi-Fi World
It’s amazing, never been happier with the music, the bass, especially, has become richer over time as it’s settled in and is now so musical. I did a back to back ‘test’ one evening with a audiophile friend (pre- Cv-19) and both agreed at that time the initial difference was the tonal richness from vocals- vocal image held the stage better- very positive evening. I love this little S80 and, honestly, it may be hidden out of sight but in reality it can’t be forgotten. Peter. C.
