  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.

    OK, received the Touch, why does it sound better than the Duet? It's only a streamer.

    Because it's got a better DAC. ;)

    Cheers Strocky for the original heads up on these, been enjoying mine immensely, dead easy to navigate the BBC listen again shows (much easier than the rubbish BBC website), and a whole plethora of other music to listen to (NPR's got some fantastic stuff on listen again too).
    Great way to listen to music without being distracted to the computer!

    But people say that even with external dac it sounds better.

    So I would guess just better build in general.

    yeah, it isn't just a superb item "for the price" or "for a second system"

    it is superb, period. the features, ease of use, and the outstanding measured performance.... there is no greater product in Hifi imo.

    Ive been listening to my library all morning via shuffle and every single night I catch "crossing boundaries" (check it out on NPR- WOUB FM Chillicothe Ohio)

    and late night it is Coast to Coast AM with George Noory! :D

    im thinking of ditching my two Turntables altogether. They are nice, a Sota/Kleos and a Souped up P2/Goldring.. but Every time I get to a point where I think about spinning vinyl I find myself eventually asking "why take a step backwards in SQ and convenience?"

    Because it has a slightly louder analogue output than the Duet, so unless you take care to level match the two, the Touch will always seem to sound better.

    LOL @ Basil for his continued denial

    Check it yourself.

    I'm guessing they've all been deleted in the great April Google purge...

    And Teddy, it true...

    Good answer Basil;)

    He's stating fact - measure the output yourself if you don't believe him.

    The Touch is louder but it is also clearer even at low volumes. I wondered if it was the Triode plugin. However having now tried and preferred the Triode plugin I can say it is not the case. The Touch has a clearer well defined bass compared to the Duet.

    The output is slightly higher but it does also sound better when level matched.
