    Arrow New Technics T/T sub-forum


    Just to let you know that we've opened up a new sub-forum in Analogue Art (see here: http://theartofsound.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=46), which will be populated later with all the Techy chat, to date, which has been posted in the Analogue Art section, since the forum started.

    This will mean that those who are looking for specific info on modding the Techy, or anything else relating to that subject, will be able to find it rather more easily, and also those who have no interest whatsoever in that subject can avoid it like the plague... Listen up, Andre!

    Please bear with us for a short while, as there will be some disruption in the Analogue Art section of the forum, until the relevant threads are moved into the new Technics T/T sub-forum.

    We're also planning to do the same in Digital Expressions, with all chat relating to the Beresford DAC, also having a separate sub-forum for computer audio related discussions.

    Therefore, we need some relevant names to call the respective areas (polite suggestions only!) and we'd like you to choose, so let's hear your suggestions, what you think of our ideas for the new sub-forums and any other constructive suggestions you would like to make!

    An excellent idea Marco, I'm sure André will be pleased

    Re the computer audio section, well it could simply be that - Computer Audio, or File Based Audio which I think is more pertinent and would be my choice, but novices may not connect with that name so readily as Computer Audio, which kind of 'does what it says on the tin'.

    Computer Audiophile already exists as a website and forum.

    Overall though, a very sensible idea.

    Strictly speaking, that should be 'Technics Babble' but I like it!
