  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.

    It was a bit of a find that one, a leap of faith in many ways. A friend of mine had been going on about how good these Sony ES amps for so I finally took the plunge and got this one, along with a matching ES tuner.

    Put it this way, it was a fairly significant upgrade on the Inca Tech Claymore I had before which did come as a surprise. Lots of power, transparent (ie you can pretty much throw any music at it) and with a superb phonostage.

    Bit of a change over the last few months.

    From these:


    to these:


    Different views:



    and from behind the speakers:


    and the kit, which has moved about, but not changed:


    Thought of writing a review of changing from large moving coils to large electrostatics but shall propbably wait until I re-install my ProAcs so that a better comparison can be made.

    SPEAKERS: PROAC RESPONSE FOURS (which could be for sale shortly) and QUAD 2905s in 'Classique' finish.


    Not to mention my old soldier cat (just noticed !), who's one of a stereo pair.

    Mike, don't suppose you miss your Orbe? You must be single or have a very understanding other half? Bet it sounds brilliant tho!

    Realy like your vinyl storage, Mike. Makes for a good display and easy access. Did you get that custom built?
  8. Mike Reed

    Not in the slightest,Andrew; also much prefer a 12" arm (over the SMEV I had with the Orbe).

    Nope. DIY, but did the two alcoves at diiferent times. Each alcove shelf holds about 250 albums (but a bit packed), so 1000+ in all.

    I never felt comfotable looking at spines sideways, and I like to browse for my next piece of music. Am working on some form of wall display for my CDs, but whether I'll ever get round to it.......:)

    Mike, I also love the look of your Lp storage. Takes me back to the days of browsing in records shops. I dislike looking at spines too, and may have to try something like that too.

    Great stuff.
