  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.

    I love Triangle speakers! Had various models for 20 years ending up with the Quators. In a moment of madness I changed them for B&W 800D2’s because their bass was so much deeper. Worst move I ever made.....I ditched the B&W’s quick sharp for Revel Salon 2’s which are stunning, but I still miss what the Triangles do...I’d say it won’t be too long before there’s a pair of Concertos in the room.

    Another thumbs up for Triangle speakers- Gaias sound wonderful on the end of a Trigon amp

    Lovely system. Quad Vena is a great little unit and Clearaudio are superb turntables. I had a great one, but I did have an issue with their Unity unipivot arm.

    You might find a second level of vibration insulation between the turntable and the table may assist, perhaps just a plinth with sorbothane feet, shouldn’t cost more than £100.

    Thanks for the tip, ill see if I can swing it in a room friendly way!
    The Quad vena is fantastic and works really well through spotify + bluetooth, for my partner/parties or just stuff im checking out, it really is not too bad at all!
    The Clearaudio is also brilliant as I am a music first kind of hifi nut, and am not down for the endless tweaks (yet), the noise floor is very low considering the floor and the "rack".

    The Antals also deal with the floor really well thanks to the plinths that also keep me from The Fear when nephews come round to check how stable everything is.

    Thankyou for the kind comments folks, not been a member of a forum for more than 10 years (I was 16 now 28).

    Oscars Audio does nice handmade plinths, natural wood finishes, but I’m sure he would paint one black if that’s what you want. He does them with sorbothane feet.

    There’s one on eBay for £25

    Lovely looking system. Any way you can get the speakers out of the bay though? I can imagine they're a little boomy in there.

    Thanks!

    Sadly not an option at all, I haven't even tried them for fear of it being better!

    Between the front ports and the curtains being at least mostly closed a lot of the time, I haven't found them boomy so far. But my old speakers were Eltax Symphonies (I think) so this is an entirely different ball game. I need some experts to help me spend more money and take over the living room more, hopefully there are some on hand

    vln Hail the sulking behemoths!

    Nice!

    Why the soundbar though? Why didn't you just connect the TV to your system?

    I really hate the sound from the TV, even with the main system hooked up it sounds awful.

    Play mine through MDAC and Quad 989 ESL's, with well recorded TV sounds great.
    Better than my 5.1 set up.

    Is that a Sondek with Aro feeding a Mu-So?

    Sad end for the LP12 in many ways but guess it was inevitable...
