  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.

How to impair the performance of Tannoy Monitor Golds....

    stick 'em in a wooden box and cut a few thin vertical slats so that they don't suffocate entirely....

    They don't have any internal damping by the looks of it either.

    They probably sound great, but knowing the effect different types of grille fabric can have on the 'transparency' of the sound, I just can't see the logic to putting a sheet of slatted wood between loudspeaker and listener??!! :confused:

    I'm intrigued by the "MOHOGNEY" cabinets.... must be an ultra rare species of wood! :D

    I saw that and meant to link yesterday! By saying that there was a factory version of the York that had a narrow vertical central strut on the baffle right across the horn mouth. I guess that was a deliberate attempt to alter dispersion? At least with this pair one can be pretty confident no kids or pets have been at the drivers!

    Ohh and slap a £2k price tag on them to make them look extra special

    I have no beef with the price. I've seen MG15 drivers with LSU crossovers sell for £2k without enclosures.

    "HERE WE HAVE A PAIR OF TANNOY GOLD MONITORS IN HOME MADE MOHOGNEY CABS THEESE ARE IN EXCELLENT WORKING CONDITION THEESE WERE SPECIALLY BUILT FOR STUDIO AND U WONT GET BETTER SPEAKERS IN BETTER CABS THAN THEESE"

    I don't know,theese people! I did see a speaker in a HFN show report recently that had two impossibly narrow "L" shaped slots, no I didn't get it either.
