Your NVA Product Guarantee (2 Years)
Please keep a copy of the sales receipt to establish the purchase date of the product.
IMPORTANT - there is no protection circuitry or filtering on the output of our amplifiers (that's one of the reasons why they sound so good!), so care must be taken in use. Do not short circuit the output; doing so will fatally damage the amplifier boards. Do not use high capacitance speaker cables as these could damage the amplifier by creating a virtual short-circuit at high frequencies. Do not use bi-wiring with non-NVA cables. Do not use Litz, Goertz or woven cables. Do not twist cables together. Avoid cables with a capacitance of greater than 200pf per metre (failure to do so will invalidate our warranty) and do not use non-NVA cables over 10 metres in length. The best sounding speaker cable for NVA and the perfect electrical match, is our LS series of low capacitance cables. Proof of purchase of NVA speaker cable, or another suitable low capacitance speaker cable, may be required when submitting any NVA amplifier for warranty repair.
There are no user serviceable parts inside NVA amplifiers. Removing the acrylic lid will invalidate the warranty.
For best sound the amplifier should be left powered up. Electricity consumption is very low. It is for this reason that the power switch is located on the back panel, where it may not be easy to reach. Turn the amplifier off when you do not intend to listen to it for extended periods.
For design performance only NVA Sound Pipe, Super Sound Pipe or Sound Cord Interconnects should be used, but this is for sonic as opposed to safety reasons.
NVA power amplifiers must only be used with passive pre-amplifiers. Use of other types of pre-amplifiers will invalidate our warranty. For sound synergy and 100% compatibility we strongly recommend using NVA passive pre-amplifiers.
