  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.

    Hi Jon,

    Hows things with you ?

    Well the first thing thats obvious is the the extra level of bass and soundstage - pure physics of a larger cabinet really which is what i was looking for.

    The thing that really surprised me was the vocals which i expected the Super 10's to convincingly beat the D18's hands down BUT not so the D18's are excellent all rounders with brilliant tight controlled bass lines with excellent vocals add to that a large soundstage and involving characteristics that are not fatiguing in any way......just very nice.

    They are getting better every day as they require approx 2-3 months to completely bed in but i loved them straight out of the box.

    You are always welcome to come have a listen anytime Jon

    Regards, Dave

    Looks very nice. I recently bought my SCM40s from Peter, and he had those ProAcs as a backup plan if I didn't like the ATCs.

    Dave - I'm good, thanks, and appreciate your kind offer. I would love to come and hear them - maybe in a couple of months or so once they have bedded in. I am sure they suit your Graaf valve amp very well too.
