  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    ...the projectile ping pong ball sounds were particularly realistic...

    you could hear her body move in the air. She lent over and squeezed; that sound will live with me, for eternity... You could almost smell the reality - Umm... Caviarteria

    I got them for about £100 on eBay and installed them on a shelf in the kitchen corner cupboard. They still raise a smile whenever I have them on - it's the best sound in the house at the moment. They have been abused at parties for hours on end, with the whole metal enclosure/heat sinks running very warm at the end of the night they never give up. AC/DC flat out - nothing wrongfoots them. I am also getting hooked on the sound from (relatively) shitty iPod systems. This range from Sony for example. http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/made-for-ipod/2/4

    Talking of cheapies, I just got a pair of Behringer (I know, I know) Truth 3031A because I've been wanting to hear these and the special offer price was too hard to resist.

    Not warmed up yet but will do a review. Not really intending to keep them so look out for an unbeatable classified offer in due course :)

    heard lots of the little sub sat systems that are ok.....very clear, detailed and analytical.....but i found them very unnatural....quite a few drum and bass, rave and nu metal producers use them.

    the biggies could be interesting though. prob more integrated than the sub systems.

    good value set up for what you get.

    I think that's the price per speaker?

    they are indeed, and with the pair of hs10w subs, they are outstanding.

    i still have my ns10s too. horrible damned things.

    Don't even think about using the "auto" power setting on these. It puts the speakers into standby when not in use. Nice idea. However it sometimes does it during quiet passages :)

    Ok, sounds good.

    One thing I will say for the humble Behringers: they are OK without a sub, better in that respect than the AVI ADM 9.1s.

    AVI is not good when it comes to specs; but we do know that the 9.1 has a 6.5" woofer and "bass extension better than – 6dB @ 60Hz".

    The B3031A has an 8 ¾" woofer and the calibration graph that comes with the speakers shows no significant drop-off until below 40Hz.

    That extra 20Hz range makes a big difference.
