    Hi Marco
    I'm having problems with AoS at the moment, twice in the past couple of days upon opening the forum microsoft essentials has kicked in to delete Exploit:JS/Blacole GB, a naughty little trojan.
    It only happens when opening AoS, so thought it may be advisable to let you know, no damage done but it would appear somewhere in the forum machinery it has been embedded. Has occured when opening the digital thread. Apologies for time wasting if you are already aware.

    Hi Marco, I have a Technics with an Origin Live Rega RB300 plus Ortofon Red Should I junk this and go for a Jelco or spend the money on a power supply? Any help glady received. Would love to hear yours sometime I am on the Wirral which isn't far from you. Many thanks. Martin C
  4. Moving house is always a nightmare, Dave. I've never heard of it going smoothly yet! Hope you get things sorted out to your satisfaction.

    I'll be in touch early in the New Year to discuss meeting up, so we can try and sort a venue out for the show somewhere in your neck of the woods. In the meantime, have a great Christmas and New Year!

    All the best

  5. The move has not been without it's issues, burst water pipes, leaking roofs, all that sort of thing. At lkeast we have heating now, a dry drive way and one building that is water tight. I am very mush still up for a combined show, still have not much time to put in to it as it's quite tough acquiring stuff at the moment as I don't know anybody up here yet. Hopefully things will settle down soon after chrimbo and I can then start thinking of longer term stuff. Meeting up in the new year sounds good.
    All the best,
  6. No problem, Dave. Did you get my reply to your last message?

  7. Hi Marco, please ignore last message, all seems to be fine now.
  8. Hi Dave,

    How's it going?

    Lol... That's weird! Nope, there's no reason at all why you shouldn't be able to post there. Try logging out and logging in again, remembering to tick the 'Remember Me' box, when you log back in again, and let me know what happens.

    Hope you've settled into the new house ok. Are you still up for joining ranks to do a combined AoS/Greenholme show? We need to meet up soon in the New Year to make some plans

  9. Hi Marco, I don't seem to be able to post any more in the trade section. Any reason? Is it cos I is black :-) Or is it just cos God hates me?

    Hi Marco,

    This looks an amazing site. Thank-you.

    You seem to know a lot about making Technics 1210's zing. I have just fitted a Rega/Origin live arm to mine. Fitted an Ortofon Red and the sound is amazing. What would you do next?
