  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.

    We're new to the forum! Ultimate Stream will be demonstrating the Kii Three loudspeakers and Kii Control in Bedroom 716 at The Audio and AV Show in Birmingham next weekend. We have been working with Quadraspire to develop an X-Ref Kii Three loudspeaker stand. The stands will be available in black or natural wood. The retail price will be £1.195. They will offer a significant sound quality improvement over the standard Kii Three stands. These will be on demonstration with the Kii Threes at the show. We will be offering these stands free with any Kii Three loudspeaker purchase prior to 15th October 2017. These stands are exclusive to Ultimate Stream in the UK. We are in the final tweaking design stages and will post some photographs shortly. We look forward to seeing anyone who is interested in hearing the Kii Three's with the stands in Birmingham. We're also at at The indulgence Show in London for those of you who are in the South East!
    For more information, please email steve@ultimate-stream.co.uk

    That's interesting I presume you have measured the speakers response with both stands and can publish those graphs?

    perhaps it would be good to demo the standard stands and the new ones you have developed so listeners can make their own minds up ?

    this is what they said

    Kii Audio Three: $13,255/pair including Kii Control unit (stands necessary)
    In a field of endeavor in which, according to KR, "we have not seen anything really new in a long time," the Kii Three impressed him as "a refreshing splash of cool water." This three-way, six-driver loudspeaker is self-amplified—each Three contains six 250W Ncore class-D modules—and uses an integral DSP system to perform crossover functions, room-boundary compensation, phase equalization, and to allow the user to shape the radiation pattern of its drivers. (As KR remarked near the end of his review, "the only valid comparison was with B&O's BeoLab 90.") Bundled with the Three—which stands only 16" tall and is intended for use on purpose-made stands—is a wired remote control for volume adjustment, input selection, and other functions. In spite of the Kii's modest size, it was, per Kal, "entirely satisfying in delineating the descending pedal notes" in a favorite pipe-organ recording, and was "almost unique" in its ability to convey "the sensation of a single throbbing column of air." Not only that, but the Threes' "dynamic range was huge," and KR was impressed by their soundstaging and transparency: "The Kii Three didn't just lift a veil away from the music—it removed a heavy cloak." In measuring the Kii, JA noted its lively enclosure, but was otherwise "very impressed." (Vol.40 No.9 WWW)
