  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.

    A good vinyl setup sounds terrific through the Kii Threes. I realise that converting analogue to digital and back is anathema to some,...

    Roon Core for Synology requires an Intel CPU and at least 2GB RAM. The DS215j has a Marvell CPU and 512MB RAM.

    Oh well. There's always UPnP/DLNA.

    I just checked the specs and I think you're right.

    If you would like some help with this, please give me a call. I have a Synology NAS which is running Roon. I use it as a backup for when...

    I had not thought to check before, but judging by this diagram (see the wiring diagram in the corner), I do not think that they provide...

    How many of the 100 were listening on the Kii Three or Dutch & Dutch 8c?

    Not so, Ken. The Kii Three can be repaired and Kii will repair them even after the five year warranty has run out.

    Do you have a reference? I was not aware that Mola Mola had made a speaker.

    Agreed. DSP is not a "magic bullet". It is an enabling technology. What matters is how you apply it.

    We did take some measurements of the Kii Three in your living room though. I appreciate that they might not have provided the room...
