  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.

    Re-Joyce ... Jason H that is.

    Main system:

    Well Tempered Amadeus GTAA Turntable (doesn't need the isolation board in the pictures, the plinth is acrylic and aluminium - hence the AA)
    Well Tempered Amadeus GTAA Arm
    Dynavector DrT XV-1s cartridge
    Dynavector L300 mk 2 Pre-amplifier
    Dynavector P300 Phono-stage
    Dynavector HX1.2 Power Aplifier
    Shahinian Obelisk 2's
    Micromega Pro transport and Pro DAC

    Supported on Hutter Racktime tables
    Interconnects are home brew, Mogami microphone cable with bullet plugs, digital by a Chord Silver cable.
    Speaker cable is back to Kimber 4TC

    Upgrades to come: None ... until hell freezes over or the new Dynavector power amps appear, whichever happens first!

    Creek CD42 (with Trichord Clock 2)

    Soon to be:

    Naim NAC32
    Naim SNAPS
    (some IC)
    Avondale NCC200 Power amp (DIY)
    Avondale Black Link speaker cables
    Linn Index/Target stands

    Eventually (within say... 18 months):

    Creek CD42 (w/ above mods)
    Rega P3 TT
    Naim NAC32
    Naim/ALW SuperSNAPS
    Avondale NCC200 Power amp
    Avondale Black Link speaker cables

    All sitting on a decent looking support (the only support I activel like the look of is the Stands Unique wall shelf system, if I cannot get one of those it will be something black and discreet)

    At that point I will start to worry about my speakers

    I see you have a Marantz 6030 CDR burner.

    I'm particularly interested in the analog inputs. What do you think of it? Is this OK to copy vinyl to CDs?
