The Beta Novo headphone amplifiers are reaching completion and I want to get them out to volunteer listeners ASAP.

Volunteer listeners, otherwise known as Beta testers, are the kind of people who like to hear a new product in the comfort of their own homes for a couple of weeks, without any obligation to buy, but are obligated to give their impressions here (good or bad but hopefully good), and are obligated to pass it on (by properly repacking the item and ensuring it gets shipped on with the best possible chance of it arriving at its next destination).

If the product fails on its way round, that's not going to be your problem by the way: I will exchange it for another in that unlikely event.

As our membership here is yet still small and from all over the planet, it could make sense to have two or three units to cover different areas of the planet. I'm thinking in particular of any Australian, New Zealand and nearby Far East members, where the cost of shipping is lessened by having a rota of members or even gathering new beta testers in that part of the world. As for the last in the chain, we have Decibel HiFi as our Australian distributor, and it could be handed back to them.

Similarly, remote parts of Europe (old eastern block). What I'm looking for I guess, is an individual in those regions to act as "boss tester", for the want of a better description.

I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to get the listening started, so please post here your wish to be included or confirm you're still interested from the previous thread on this subject. Oh, and also tell me your location and we can get together some rotas.

Thanks,
Graham

Ian and I will gladly do this if that's your wish.  Not spoken up so far as not sure we're qualified so much re headphone listening as we don't get chance to do it very often.  Very happy to have a go and will give whatever feedback we can to assist.
 
We've got 7 different Audio Technica phones inc 595 and 650, Grado SR325i, Sony earbuds, Koss something or other and some old Sennheisers that need new foam for the earpads.

OK, you're on the UK rota. Which position has yet to be established.

Come on guys (and gals if any), UK - Europe - Australia: I'm willing to do up to three beta's for this community to roughly cover these areas and make it so nobody has an unreal shipping cost to send it on. Final stop for Oz will be in Oz (Decibel HiFi - I still have to tell Brian about it), so don't be shy, wherever you are, this is your chance to use a Novo for 2 weeks for the cost of shipping it on.

OK - I will put my hand up.

Why not email those who already nominated - unless they are on the RG dist list.

I have refrained from volunteering before now because I have only one pair of AT headphones (ath-a900) and a freebee £30 Byerdynamic to test with and can only compare with a green solo  so I have assumed there are others better qualified to judge.

I don't agree!

Are you now on the list?
