  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.

    Are they all named now? What about the first one, named as Alps- Jap luxury. Does it have a better name?
    And which one sounds best? ;)

    Nearly all named correctly..... so here is the complete list

    Top row, left to right:
    Alps RK50, TKD 2CP-2500, Alps RK27 (blue), PEC, Alps RK40 (black)

    Bottom row, left to right:
    Penny & Giles RF15, TKD 2CP-601/S, Tocos Cosmos, Alpha 9-PC-STE, Noble RP25


    and to keep you on your toes, here are 5 more :)

    I think No.4 is an Elma, probably a 2 pole 24 way.
    And No. 5 could be a Valab unit. No.1 looks like another Valab switch with Dale resistors.

    No.2 Audionote 100K? And No.3 Noble, or at least claimed as such on ebay.
    I must get out more! :D

    2 out of 5 :)

    correct

    it does seem to be a Noble, and certainly has elements of the same sound through the midrange and top end
     
  9. awkwardbydesign

    So does that mean only 2 and 3 are correct? What about 4, is it not an Elma?
     
  10. sjs

    sjs Trade: SJS Electroacoustics

    2 and 3 are correct, but 4 is not an Elma....although the switch looks like one ;)

    Grr! :mad:
    Well, I'm off to fire up the Coleman reg for the 01A. Wish me luck!

    best of luck with that.

    I have some of Ale's gyrator boards, but fear it may take some time before I can get them going, so I am interested in your experience.

    It worked! So far. See Wigwam thread.

    Goldmund? Had one that looked similar in my old OTO SE, think you may have fitted it.

    How about DACT? CT2? But I still think the switch is made by Elma!

    Hashimoto have announced a price rise of 8 to 11% across their entire range of transformers from 1st November.

    The Model 9 SUT can be supplied with Hashimoto HM-3, HM-X or HM-7 mc step-up transformers, and special deals are available during October to beat the price rise.

    Dual primaries can be switched for high/low impedance carts, and the grnd connection on the primary can be isolated for floating the MC coils. The casework is lined with mu metal sheet for screening, and solid core silver hook up wire and WBT silver loaded solder helps to up the foo factor :)
