  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.

No sound from Nait2?

    I posted this in Audio section but had no luck so wondered fi anyone in here could help?

    All of a sudden there is no sound from my nait2... it lights up but there is no thump when I switch the power on.

    Anyone got any ideas as to what it could be? Anything easy I can check or am I looking at a big bill from naim? It was serviced by them in 2001.

    Thanks for any help.

    Are you concerned about resale value of the item? I ask because it will go down dramatically if you bodge about with it (like so many of us in here :) )

    Next, try the daft stuff first:

    Are all the cables connected properly?

    if you have more than one source, does swapping the inputs make a difference?

    Naims have a characteristic hiss that comes from the speakers when the amp is switched on. Is the hiss present ?(stick your ear against a tweeter!)

    If everything is connected fine and you've still got no sound, you need to ask yourself: do I want to whip the lid of and mess around with multimeters etc? If so, I'm sure someone here can talk you through diagnosing Nait problems.

    Good luck!

    It must be a power supply problem

    My best guess given its had a fairly recent service is a blown rectifier.

    or one of the tranformer leads has come adrift
