Is it just me or are we missing some forums?

Yes. No. You're right, it's just you.

Ok, I've found it.

maybe I am mad, but have the forums all changed order on the forum page?

Yes, but it was not that hard to find ;)

Thats discrimination!!! What can I say but I was preoccupied with far more important things.

Change can be a good thing. Don't take it so hard. It could happen to any of us {(well not really, just being PC) just kidding, I'm lucky if I can find the keyboard}. Don't you just hate when you get so used to using a company's website that you can just click the correct part of the display without looking, then one day you end up someplace you have never seen before! Damn webmaster went and updated the site. The company probably likes that because you are seeing other things they want you to see.

BTW, are we still Audiophiles if we can't find the Forum? And if an Audiophile falls in the forest is it digital or analog?

I get the feeling that the "Audiophiles" forum has been moved down the list just for all the contention that occurs within.
Probably has become an embarrassment.
We've been shown the door and pointed to the service entrance.

Cheers all you brawlers!

Haunyack, what are you trying to say? Is it like, "We don't need no stinking badges!" but instead, "We don't need no sticking audiophile opinions!"

But you do make a great point. What company wants a bunch of audiophiles telling their buying public that they modified this and that. Might make the new buyers wonder if they bought something bad that needs redesigned by the owner before it is useable (which isn't the case).

The Squeezebox 3 is great, personally I just like to tinker and "Squeeze" a little more performance out of it at the same time. New buyers, notice I said a little more performance. The SB3 is very good and there are no huge gains to be had just from swapping parts directly. Besides there is always the Transporter and SB+ if the SB3 is not enough. Not to bad mouth Boulder, but I do not understand where they fit in. For what their mods cost on the SB3, I could buy a TP or SB+ and move the unmodified SB3 to the kitchen or bedroom. Anyway, just MHO.

The flamewars will be held in the backroom.

Did you notice the description of the forum got changed also? It used to say something along the lines of "Getting the best possible sound from your system". Now it says "Know everything about Pear Cables v.s. The Amazing Randi? This is your forum.". LOL! Somebody with a sense of humor has given it a more accurate description :-).

I actually visit the audiophiles forum purely for the humor aspect of it.

For anybody that needs these outlet plates, I have them at half price $15 each. Mine are almost impossible to over-tighten so no fear of breaking like the $30 ones. Ours are made from industrial nylon, coated with frequency control polymer that is cured under UV light, then excite them with X band at 10 GHz for 12 hours after which we cryo them. Ours are manufactured by Leviton exclusively for us, but some how Home Depot is selling them for 57 cents! Again feel free to order them from us and save $15.

All kidding aside, I will tell you the funniest thing about gone crazy audiophiles. Are you ready? They spend multiple tens of thousands of dollars on their systems, thousands of dollars on their cables and interconnects, multiple hundreds of dollars on their power conditioners and special power cords, then plug everything into an 87 cent contractor spec outlet?!?!

The reason we moved the Audiophile forum lower down on the page was because it had degenerated into a steady stream of useless comments just like this:

(I don't mean to pick on you iPhone - many users, myself included have participated).

The audiophile forum remains open for discussion of power plate covers and such, but please keep it clean.

Since our goal is to make these forums hospitable to everyone, this thread is now closed. Feel free to resume it in Audiophiles.

Thanks,
Sean
