  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.

    Nicely considered combination. Bet you it sounds great. What are your speakers?

    Thank you, Clay. The speakers are Dynaudio X12's on Atacama stands.

    Please forgive the horrible pics as I've never gotten this Panasonic camera sorted. Have't snapped a decent pic since I traded in my Canon on this camera.

    My system is:

    Rega Brio-R
    Well Tempered Simplex/DPS/Ortofon 2M Blue
    Naim CD5x
    Dynaudio Excite X12
    Cables by Chord & Rega

    Nice system, ArtK!

    You had owned a pair of Harbeth P3esr prior to switching over to Dynaudio Excite X12. What caused the move? Is it due to apparent lack of drive and dynamics in the Harbeth?

    Looking good (as always) ArtK! :cool: The looks of the WT TT are slowly starting to grow on me.
    At first I didn't like the looks of it (beause of the weird arm), but I'm starting to appreciate the simplicity of its design. (just as I do with Rega gear)

    Btw, did you know that with the supplied remote that comes with a Naim CD-player, you can also control the Brio-R. :) (at least adjusting volume)

    Pretty much. I needed a speaker that wouldn't be a let down relative the things that the Harbeth speakers do well, timbre, voices and the like while also adding greater dynamics and flexibility for room size and genre. The X12's meet those needs quite nicely.

    I did know that. The Rega remote allows for more subtle movement of the volume.

    I would like to thank Peter Ruler at Igloo Audio for a brilliant service
    To Steve for delivering and setting up (beyond the call of duty) CHEERS MATE.
    And to Pro Ac for a superbly built cabinet and stonking speaker....Excellent.
