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.

Is everything OK with Stirling Broadcast?

    My SIL would like to buy some new SB LS 3/5a V2. I saw in the web that the German SB importer does not have a single SB of all types available. (The importer has no warehouse but all orders go through him and the goods come directly from SB to the customer). I called him and he said that no one from SB is getting back to him since some days. I hope everything is ok with Doug Stirling?

    I had email correspondence with Doug earlier this month. Doug does seem to have an aversion to email, a trait I understand, but typically does respond to phone calls. Lovely gentleman to deal with so hopefully others can chime in with more recent and hopefully positive news.

    Deco Audio ordered me two replacement tweeters a month or so ago. Was apparently a challenge to get hold of him, but no problem once they had. Maybe just a bit of a dinosaur with comms (and who can blame him).

    Should add, I’ve spoken to him on the phone, and he was perfectly normal!

    There's a pair of V3 for sale on here, though I don't know whether the seller (Tony) would wish to ship outside the UK.

    The last time I dealt with him, a few weeks ago, all was fine.
    He was his usual helpful self.
    Lovely man...

    I have Stirlings on my shortlist for a potential speaker upgrade later in 2023, so I hope there aren't any issues

    Yes, Doug is a pleasant, experienced and knowledgeable member of the hi-fi world.

    Just saw this thread. I ordered a new pair of Stirling V3's in light Oak last February. They had problems with getting the veneer or something - I waited until November and the dealer still couldn't tell me when they'd be available ! so i cancelled. Luckily I found a sh pair soon afterwards.

    Spoke to Peak Hifi the other day who are a Stirling dealer and they said they can't get hold of Doug at Stirling at all and so were unable to offer me a demo of any Stirling speakers at the minute.

    Definitely something not right going on...
