  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.

Rega Apollo-R CDP - impressive!

    We have an upmarket second system (TEAD Vibe, Hovland Radia, Dali mini monitors). It was fronted by a Pioneer PD-S904 which was definitely good enough. The Pioneer developed an intermittent brain fault so we discussed a replacement with our dealer (Jon at Midland Audio Exchange) who recommended the Rega Apollo-R. We bought it without auditioning it. It is more than good enough. It is attractive, nice to use and seems well made - with a lifetime guarantee. It is sweet sounding; more detailed than the Pioneer; does the PRaT bit well; and the vocals are superb. It is British made which is nice too. Jon says Rega are a delight to deal with. A taste of the high end for less than 600 notes. Very pleased.

    We have spent quite a lot of time listening to the Rega and our early impressions are still valid. We have noticed one slightly weird effect - the sound carries much more clearly into adjacent rooms, even though we are playing at what we think is the same volume.

    Yep, love mine which I brought pre-loved for the bargain sum of £250.00! It's a delight and also keeps the missus happy as she only likes to play CDs!
