1. 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.

    Vu meters make me ‘look’ at the music instead of listening to it........must be the reason why I also leave the grills on my speakers !

    I also leave my grills on. I spent many hazy years in and out of recording studios. I suspect it is that.

    The music IS the overall "thing" - but I find that some audio aesthetics leave me significantly unimpressed. For some reason I like big black lumps of musical happiness.

    I had a lovely piece of kit years ago. I would have kept it but the sound quality just wasn't there...

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    For the most part, this is me, but the kit does have to look neat in my room, but musical enjoyment is what does it for me. It’s amazing what a decent system can do with an album like Clapton Unplugged, it definitely gives me “the fizz”, although to be clear, “the fizz” in my head, chest and arms... not lower down.

    Fizz? Some of my old electrostatics fizzed, not that they were meant to!

    I had an old valve amp that had bad earthing and insulation - it definitely gave me the fizz when I touched it.

    If lower down, it would be 'pizz', surely (or am I just taking........?) :D

    :) Ah the good old days! I haven’t had a shocking experience from audio equipment for ages, other than just how close some of it gets to the original sound and the sensations it evokes.
