  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.

Replacements for B200!

    Having already had to replace bass drive units in my Saras I am now a little wary of pushing them too hard in case I blow the replacments - and good B200s are not always so readily available. I see Wilmslow recommend a Monacor unit as a replacement BUT they also seem to recommend this same speaker for almost any B200 variant - and I am already aware the B200 comes in many guises each with quite different properties. How then can they recommend a single unit as suitable for all these? Looking at the spec of the Monacor SPH 210 unit it seems quite a close match to the Sara B200 SP1014 but with a bit more power handling capability - so on the surface seems attractive.

    Has anyone tried the Monacor units in Saras? and if so how did they get on with them? I know some cabinet work is necessary but I'm more inteested in the final sound and if the swap is worth it or not. If its going to ruin the sound then of course I'm not interested.
