  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.

    Agreed, I don't expect them to sound any better, I find a quiet dedicated unit a good solution though.

    The fact they only run Roon with a dedicated OS can only be a good thing for those that don't want to manage a pc.

    Does the price include a Roon licence?

    I'd like to think it included a lifetime licence!

    I roon Roon on a 2012 Mac Mini, with various Raspberry Pi's with either the Digi+ board or Meridian Explorer 2 USB dacs attached to them.

    Considering Very.co.uk were doing the Mac Minis for £250 with cashback their own linux box does seem pricey.
     
  9. Meridian again trying to hit the big time?

    Personally I think Meridian are losing the plot.

    Entry level compact system now £4000, compact DSP speakers now £6500.

    I just don't get how they will get the next generation of customers on board.

    Roon, I believe aren't anything do with Meridian, although some of their designers were formerly responsible for Sooloos.

    Roon started off as Sooloos Version 3, but they went their separate ways to let it grow in the way it needed.

    Just installed Roon's dedicated ROCK OS on my Vortexbox. Works like a charm. Quicker than my Mac Mini.

    I installed it on a fairly recent Aleutia machine that originally ran my Vortexbox software. Not hugely powerful but installed without a hitch via USB dongle. It was running all day and served to two Endpoints, a Squeezebox Touch and a Pi/ Dac/Touchscreen model I put together.No glitches as yet but need to install codecs when I have chance. In tend to clean up my Mac Mini as well and do fresh install of Roon Server as it seems to have become glitchy. Have proper comparison then.
