Well Wigwam is working out very good, but looking at the number of posts l at Hi fi choice not everyone seems to have made it here?

That have stopped posting there

Oreven Paulberry's new forum :dude:

Its only one up from a gut feeling but people have just gone, even allowing for holidays:D

Which is sad as Wigwam and Choice both have plenty to offer

Actually seen a lot of faces around this week that haven't been here for a while.

I think it's holidays and cricket and sunny weather mate. Nooo bother.

Newcastle Upon Tyne,
I dont really visit any hifi forum as much these days. I am still around though, but often just lurking nowadays

Iagree, I am moving into a new gaff soon, and if it will help improve things, I may give it a go, but I am sure there is new legislation just come out that any work carried out by the householder must be checked by an electrician. Would be worth getting the check since if anything goes wrong you can bet the insurance companies will use it as a get out clause. If it is any help, I have seen some things in the audiophile candy catalogue such as non-fused sockets and plugs that are said to make a small improvement for little cost. If I find out any more about the new rules I will post the here.

Just found this, hope it helps..

oh, and found this within the document..

From 01 Jan 05 in the UK Electrical works such as this need to be signed-off by a suitably-qualified person or approved by your local Building control inspectorate, following the introduction of the new Approved Document Part P component of the Building Regulations

My $0.02 is , given the slump the 2ch hifi industry is currently in, it is no wonder there should be a corresponding decline in traffic at sites like HFC. I also reckon most of the newer members at HFC who leave after posting a few messages about their new kit, are quite content to beat a retreat from all that hardcore audiophile tawk, and settle down to enjoy their systems. Not every hifi owner is keen to wade into the latest rehash of the Naim/MF X-80/Art Emoticons/main cables sagas at HFC.

Cloth-ears... for what it's worth, I had a dedicated spur wired in for the HiFi when I moved House, complete with six seperate high quality mains sockets. Comparisons are hard, since the new room clearly had more effect than the better(?) cabling, but I can say that the mains supply seems clean, with a notable lack of sudden surges etc when I turn other things on / off (turntable stability very good for example, and there's no seperate power supply). It's not costly and I reckon probably worth doing, even if only because it's one upgrade you needn't worry about, and it's (lack of) effectiveness would be hard to prove. A few quid well thrown away I'd say!
