PS: the TVR in your name refer to the obscure British sports car? My boss at the hifi shop had one...
TVR was an obscure british sports car manufacturer. They were brutally loud, too loud to be legal in Switzerland.

TVR's aren't obscure - just wait for the tyre smoke to clear! Big engine-gearbox-axle. No computers. I was lucky to catch a TVR club coming down to Brighton once. They parked up in formation at the Marina and showed off thier machines. Then a few of them when for a blast around the multi-storey car park - Think 100ft high cliffs & large echo-y concrete structure with 4L+ engines blasting through minimal resistance exhaust they were asked to leave after that

OP - miniDSP + digital amps = Meridian speakers at 'budget' price levels - just a thought

My most memorable experience was riding shotgun, Terry winding it out, and then having to slow down when he hit 140 mph (90 kph zone) because the air pressure differential was pulling the windshield out.

Looked like this, but white with blue racing strips and had a 289 in it.

I liked TVRs own straight six engine but when they cobbled two together to create the Speed12 it was just insane!
The only time I've known a racing version producing LESS power than the official road-going one.
That said TVRs owner at the time managed to persuade every customer to opt for the restricted 675bhp racing engine. He deemed the road version to be undriveable.
The unrestricted engine broke TVRs dyno (it sheared the input shaft!) which was rated up to 1000bhp. The car weighed 1100kg.

Sorry for the OT btw.

TVR talk is not OT. Its a sage business tip:

'Once established, NEVER NEVER NEVER sell out to the son of a rich Russian'

The only problem with TVR was totall unreliability.

Sadly the cars are now more reliable than the company itself.

And that ends the TVR advert break - now back to the studio

What an interesting point of view from all of you guys, very good read!

So did you take a decision? I am an entrepreneur myself 9 years and growing on the Computer Network Integration business, and if you ever decide to move forward I can share this in this order:

1.- You can't start a company by research, you have to have guts, make a project box and put it out there, start creating a name for you, locally and on the web of course
2.- Make sure you know your break-even point, if the business is not making money is not a business
3.- Set yearly goals, ALL involving growth, finances and business expectations, set a vision and mission statement for the company
4.- Hire people and set a process for every stage of your operation
5.- Never stop learning, force yourself into courses, management, accounting, etc...
6.- The passion for this hobby can be shadowed by business stress, so make sure it's something you can commit long-term and keep it fresh by learning and going to events
7.- Never look down, if you think you are going to fail, it will happen.
8.- What you can't do, God will do for you. Keep the faith.

There could be much more involved but those are my business basics
