  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.

    Does that mean this will turn out to be a stealth marketing thread? Not impressed.

    No, just an information that these realy good Speakers will be available again to Listen. Nothing more ...

    The Project was developed here and in other Forums worldwide. Thanks to all contributed!

    I bought the upgraded 050 stands direct from the factory a matter of months before they folded. I don't know who I was talking with, but we had a long chat about the hifi world, and his financial woes. He mainly dealt with one man band hifi dealers who were often better at setting up a LP12 than running a bank account, and ARC probably folded due to dealers paying too slowly, or not at all. A great shame, as they had plans for some great sounding new products.

    I'm listening to a pair of simple ARC 050s, and marvelling at your commitment to the cause :)

    By the way, the ARC 050s was not simple!

    It used the same driver I'm reconstructing now ...... only a little bit cutted.

    Professionel experts from today well known loudspeaker chassis suppliers told me, that a speaker with TS-Parameters like the 050 can't work. :D:D:D

    :cool:
