  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.

Tannoy Eclipse speakers - anyone know them ?

    I´ve got a pair of these in my cupboard - still in their boxes - I doubt they have more than 20 hours on them - I only ever used them with my Sugden A48II as a stop-gap while my Heybrook HB2s were having new tweeters fitted. I can´t remember much about them - can anyone ?

    If I am correct, the Eclipse is the model below the Mercury. I had the Mercury I and Mercury II in 1986. The Mercury was very nice speakers, I paid 300 quid for a Cyrus One, Dual CS505 and the Mercury in 1986.

    I had a pair of Eclipses up till about 10 years ago.Thought they were a decent budget speaker until I replaced them with Royd A7s...I then realised I had been very, very wrong.

    They were my first proper hifi speakers, I have regretted selling them ever since.

    Rose tinted glasses but I remember them having great open midrange, they were a bit soft at the bottom and top however, enjoyable!

    I had some Mercury S, the model above the Eclipse. Nice open mid-range if a little veiled on top but good fun. Quite light bass but cheap cabinets.
    Much the same with the Jupiter S which I grew up with.
    Epic colour scheme with the black as and Gold highlights! John Player Special speakers!
