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.

    Pioneer CS 363 from the 80s
    A small 3 way Monitor Audio from the 80's - can't recall the model number
    Heybrook HB1 - drove these so hard from an underpowered amp that I melted the bass unit voice coils. Oops
    BLQ2 (used these for years - huge soundstage)
    B&W DM600's - regretted buying these
    JPW mini monitor
    Celestion Ditton 300
    Wharfedale Dovedale III - surprisingly good given their age
    Ram CD10
    Proac D15 - zzzzzzz
    ATC SCM40 - my current main system speaker. Very classy and capable
    Zaph ZD5 - DIY. These would be the set I would grab to save if the house was on fire. After wife, kids and dog of course.
    Zaph ZA5.2 - DIY. Superb value for money
    Troels Peerless HDS134 - DIY. These got me into my DIY journey - wide and deep soundstage and very smooth
    Ruark Epilogue
    IPL M1TLm - DIY. Transmission line with ribbon tweeter. Sold these to a friend who still has them. Nice to hear them again when I visit.
    Audioexcite Classic M5 - DIY. I liked these but not as much as the guy who helped my daughter pass her maths GCSE. Sold them to him for peanuts and he was so pleased. Not as pleased as I was though as the wailing and moaning about maths stopped.

    There must be some I have forgotten and there will no doubt be others that will come along later...
