  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.

    Yes wasn't supposed to be guess work, but hopefully makes it a bit more interesting. That's why I'm a better lurker than poster. You are correct though. It's a pre, a dac and active speakers and well that's about it! Still, sounds pretty good.

    Agree they are for all the systems I've used over the years. The JBL's simply retain everything at such low levels and project it.

    Obviously if I want to listen differently they offer the same calm demeanour at 120 db at the listening position. I just don't find I need it. Maybe I'm getting old...

    Going to replace fitted carpet with parquet floor and the two layers of plasterboard underneath with two layers of Membrane Roll HP made by Artnovion.
    Then I will buy a sofa. At the end I will show you the result.

    What’s the point of the Membrane Roll HP? Do you have people living underneath you?

    Andy, my room is acoutically isolated. When I listen to music in the morning at 7-8 AM or night 11PM - 2 AM, I do not want to disturb anyone in my house nor outside. I listen at concert level (classical music) so the level reaches with Mahler the 100 dB.

    Mahler at 7am? Really?

    Yes, the 2nd, 3rd, 5th or 6th, simply great, anytime. Also Shostakovich, Stravinsky and Prokofiev.

    First post! Apologies for the modern kit!

    Clearaudio Concept with the provided MM
    Project Phonobox out of sight (hopefully to be replaced with a Microgroove/similar soonish!)
    Quad Vena
    Triangle Antal Espirit EZ

    Cables are basic for now, room is 3.5m/4m ish

    Sounds incredible to me!

    Somewhat confused no one else mentions Triangle speakers, I'm somewhat in love with these and have been impressed with others in the higher ranges too.
