  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.

    First you get speakers with exaggerated treble, complain about transistor grain and attempt to tame it with valves and cables. All at...

    The exaggerated treble used to be part of ProAc's house sound in the past. I haven't listened to any of their models recently.

    On the other hand this may be the reason why such a tweeter may sound "disconnect" from the rest of the spectrum.

    Many speakers with ribbon tweeters that I have seen tested have the ribbon set a few dB hot, so is the "fast" treble actually boosting...

    For all practical purposes yes. The equation is correct, but usually expressed as wavelength = speed / frequency. The speed is a...

    More extended means that the tweeter can produce sound at higher frequencies. Since most tweeters can go beyond the human audible range,...

    Can you explain what you mean when you say that you like the way tweeters "couple to the room"?

    I don't know, I only read the measurements pages. But my amplifier is not commercially available so it can't be in any list of any magazine.
