  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.

    Main system hasn't changed much in years, so for some variety this is 'On the Move'

    No, it is just carefully boxed-up and sleeping at present. I have almost certainly migrated to the 124 now, not necessarily because it is in any way better, just because it looks so cool and I have invested so much time, effort and cash into its restoration. I see no need to sell the 301 at this point as the deck itself and the SME M2-10 I used with it are both worth more than I paid and will almost certainly be a better investment than having the money in cash, but they may be in on the 'trades' bench as there are still a few things I want to try...

    I do like that. Nice big speakers and a miscellany of quality kit; just my thing.:)

    Proper lash-up that is. I'd like a lash-up room and rig like that. Is there a bar out of our view?

    OLDIUS,

    Do you sit on that sofa and listen to reflections? :) A well-known reviewer whose name escapes me (HiFi Answers?) used to listen to his Impulse H2s' reflection from sitting between the speakers.

    If not, it's not conducive to imaging, I believe, to have furniture between m/coil speakers, even I/B ones close to the wall.

    That was Jimmy Hughes; if I remember correctly, he used to have his loudspeakers firing sideways on.
