  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.

    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.

    Can't believe you'ed get banned for that, IEC sockets are the devils work. You know what they say, 'there's non so blind as they who will not see' :)

    One definition: "A ripoff (or rip-off) is a bad financial transaction. Usually it refers to an incident in which a person is overcharged for something, or receives goods or services not of the standard expected for the price. A ripoff is usually distinguished from a scam in that a scam involves wrongdoing such as fraud; a ripoff may be considered excessive, but not illegal."

    That's Naimies for you, they live in a complete world of their own.

    However I have heard from a reputable source that you can improve a captive cable but cutting it, putting a female connection on and then using a better quality kettle lead. I doubt from one of these though.

    IF the banning claim were at all credible.

    I'm sure it's very likely.

    I have two of them & in their defence, whilst they are 'only' a moulded IEC on a 0.75mm cable, the moulded plug is high quality & noticeably better than the run of the mill kettle lead stuff, the best I've seen TBH. The Naim 13a plug is an all plastic copy of the original PowerLine & only able to take 0.75mm cable (missed a trick there Naim, might sell a whole load more if it was able to fit chunky cable & was sold separately).
    How do they sound ?? I used them to replace some good quality Supra LoRad, Martin Kaiser, MK ToughPlug cables on my Teddy PSU's, I don't detect any difference.

    £95 is what not to like

    OP, I think you believe it is just a plain powercord marked up by Naim to 95 quid, which I agree would be wrong.
    Look closer, it's not.

    The thing is that it's clearly not just a plain powercord, because it has a specialist plug top fitted. If you look at the variety of audiophile mains leads on offer, £95 is towards the lower end of the scale and after all, this isn't in league with Linn's £50 belt rip off.

    So is this exactly the same stock cable which Naim has always used but fit with better plug now? Also has anyone compared it with the old stock cable, how does it sound?

    Kraus,

    Why would I have any need to make a claim that was not true. I was questioning the 'Science' behind the Powerline cable on its release at an exhorbitant price. I could not except that an iec socket, which introduces another connection, could be better than a captive. It'a like adding another synapse in a reflex arc!! The discussion proceeded and I was given a "break".
    May I request that you do not suggest that I'm lying. I find it rather distasteful.
