  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...

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.

Adding RCA phono inputs to an NAC72

Discussion in 'd.i.y.' started by mach1, Jun 19, 2017.

    I own an NAC72 with BNC phono inputs. I also run a fairly up market Exposure system, and own a few other hi end phono preamps with RCA inputs. Hence my reluctance to convert my turntable outputs to BNCs.

    There appears to be enough real estate on the NAC72 back panel to wire a set of RCA phono inputs in parallel with the BNCs, thus enabling a choice between connectors.

    Are there any potential flaws with my proposal? Would I be better of with totally dispensing with the BNC inputs and replacing them with RCAs?

    Thanks in advance for your expert feedback.

    Replacing the BNC with a phono socket is pretty non invasive and can be returned to standard . I'd be reluctant to start drilling the back of the chassis.

    There are adaptors too but the golden eared will tell us thats a bad suggestion :D

    The adaptors tend to have less effect on the sound if used on the sockets rather than in the ears. :)

    I replaced the bnc connectors on my 62 with RCAs fifteen years ago and haven't regretted it for a moment.

    I swapped the BNCs for RCAs on my old 32.5, easily done and easily replaced when I moved it on.
