  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.

Dynaudio BM5a MKII tweeter issue

Discussion in 'audio' started by Eddie Teflon, Sep 13, 2017.

    I've been enjoying my Dynaudio's for just over a couple of years now as part of my DJ set up (as recommended by someone on here).

    Last week one of the tweeters started distorting and buzzing. By the end of my radio show the distortion had stopped but I'd lost all of the top end.

    Real Electronics (the UK service centre) are wanting £100 just for labour and return shipping and haven't yet even told me an estimated cost.

    I'm assuming I need to replace the tweeter. Has anyone on here ever done this and/or know where I can get a replacement please?

    Thanks in advance....

    The tweeter is a Dynaudio Esotec D-281. Trying to get one from the service centre, but no luck as of yet!

    Contact Dynaudio directly and try to grt a replacement. You can swap it yourself.
    No need to pay £100 to send your speakers.

    Don't ever send anything back to the distributor, EVER... just order the parts and do it yourself, i have a spare tweeter here if you need the part number.

    Thanks, I'll be trying this myself now. Wasn't sure if it was an easy job but a few others have told me it is. Just need to get the part now.

    @Space is the Place - yes please re the part number. Think the one I found is for the MKI rather than the MKII. And where did you get yours from?

    The number is 80482, the tweeter comes with a gasket and fitting instructions or the one i have here does, i'd sell you mine, but im sort of keeping it in the hope that one day i'll get the transformer rewound and the MkII's up on and running.
