  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.

ProAc Response 2 question

    All -

    I've been searching for a pair of ProAc Response 2 speakers and have received an offer on a pair.

    However:

    The woofers have been replaced, ostensibly by ProAc, with ScanSpeak 18W/8545K00 drivers; these are obviously not the original clear plastic drivers. Does anyone know if this is a valid replacement driver? (I've emailed ProAc directly, but thought I might get a quicker response here (no pun intended).)

    Also, there is a photo of the serial number, which is P 01749, but not of the typical ProAc model/serial number plate. The driver configuration looks correct - they are not Studio 1s, but I'm a bit concerned by the drivers and lack of S/N plate.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi bob, i'd avoid them. Original Response 2s pop up in Germany from time to time and are well worth the journey.

    Agreed. Such a dramatic change in cone material (and maybe parameters) will render them not R2's any more.

    Yep, pending hearing from ProAc I'm going to pass . . .

    Might as well wait for a good pair . . .
