  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.

    'Since I have never had an extremely high-quality music server in my chain, I was quite curious how such a complete solution with memory and streaming module - and in this case plus CD drive - in comparison with my combination of the Melco behaves as a pure NAS and the Auralic Aries Femto as a streaming bridge. The Rockna Wavedream DAC has to be patient for a while. Because the NET does not have a USB output like the Aries, I connected it for comparison via S / PDIF with the Chord Electronics DAVE. For a short functional test, I put a well-known CD in the NET, pressed start and was impressed lasting: Ravi Shankar's "West Eats Meet" had never heard so good before! What the NET gets out of the silver disc is phenomenal, especially in terms of spatial imaging - but this does not mean that he does not also act at an extremely high level in the other disciplines. As can be seen in the DAVE display, the FPGA responsible for signal processing in the NET does not change the sampling frequency of the data. The Rockna works exclusively as a memory player, but not as an upsampler or upscaler such asChords Blu MkII .'

    We have both NET and DAC here in Malvern on permanent demonstration, or give Steve a call at Ultimate Stream for NET demonstrations.
