  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.

    Just wondering if anyone could tell me if A Naim Snaxo powered by hicap can be used with non Naim pre and power amps.

    No reason why not - you’ll need to make up appropriate cables of course.

    Yes. The SNAXO is dedicated to the speaker in use, not the amplification

    Hey puddlesplasher, what speakers are you using?

    “Most” SNAXOs are configured for SBLs or DBLs .....

    It would be with a pair of SBL's.

    There should be no issue with this, but do make sure the cables between the SNAXO and your amps are fairly short and have low capacitance as they can oscillate at HF if provoked.

    Yup, I ran a Naxo very briefly with Exposure and SBLs until the folks at Exposure built me a V. Interesting comment on the leads above. I made some very standard ones myself and when changing over to the V experienced a huge leap in sound quality. I know there are many factors at play there but wonder how much might have been down to the cables?

    I was going to use Exposure amps also. Do you still use the V or has that been passed on.
