  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.

Unfamiliar power connector

    Hi -

    I just unpacked a bunch of gear which came back to me from Avondale Audio.

    One of the NAP 250s Les worked on has a new AC input connector I have never seen before. The other one has the normal AEC connector.

    The unfamiliar one is a little under 2 cm in diameter, round, and has two red plastic posts inside the round opening, and one smaller bare metal post, presumably the ground (?).

    Can any one help me identify this connector type so I can buy the needed cable to plug it in?

    I sure hope it is not some UK only type. (I am in the USA).

    Les's message box here is full, and the contact page of the Avodale website replied with a not very encouraging note about how long I might have to wait to get a reply. So, I am appealing to the PFM community

    Excited to hear it all making music as soon as I can get it hooked up!

    Thanks -

    It's a Cannon mains connector Colin, fitted to the older Naims as standard. As the 250 came in with this connector, I assumed you'd have the correct fitting mains lead. If you can't get hold of one locally, I'll be happy to pop one on airmail to you.

    ps. UPS, who eventually collected the packages, never even murmured about unpacking the items. Glad it all arrived OK.

    Great. I am pretty sure that amp came to you with an IEC connector attached. This may be a USA model different from yours.

    An airmail cable would be great. Think I can find one here?

    Thanks -

    Hi Les -

    I have now confirmed that the 250 I can power up is working. Hard to tell how it sounds without the HF channel going to the tweeters, but it works!

    Let me know on the cable - I have not seen one for sale locally in the searching I have done in the last hour or so.

    Thanks -

    Colin, I'd remove your fedex # if I were you - you could end up with a big bill!

    Thanks Neiljadman!

    I realized this was not an email to Les only after I posted it. I did not realize until your post that I could edit my posts. I will make sure to watch for bogus charges!!

    Thanks -
