Re: Last chance for Dynamik upgrade on Klimax

My Dealer says it‘s CHF 1900.00 for a Twin. That means around Euro 1700.00. Quite hefty!

Re: Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

I am thinking that you should get your Sondek tested for contact between motor and tramp foot and other setup problems. And get your arm checked also. There indeed was a problem with the tramp foot on my LP12 too which I discovered and solved many months ago thanks to this forum. In the meantime I ...

Re: Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

Could you perhaps describe in what way some of your rock favorites sound unsatisfactory? Do you find them less enjoyable than before the upgrade? Yes there are many LPs I find hard to listen to because there is some uneasiness about them now. It‘s a metallic quality and hiss especially with high-pi...

Re: Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

Last week I arrived at AS 0,9 and I thought it was fine. Although I always used the same two records when doing the listening tests. When I listened to Abbey Road the next day it sounded terrible. I lost patience and changed the AS to 1,75 which you suggestiv is normal. Suddenly the record sounded m...

Re: Linking M6100 Amplifier

My first impression was „better musical flow“ which is more or less the same as timing. The only possibility with the Klimax Kontrol is to connect the two Twins by daisy-chaining. I had to use the balanced output of amp1 and the rca input input of amp2. This probably also influences the timing.

Re: Linking M6100 Amplifier

I can confirm the above. For more than 12 years I have been running my 242/1 with two Twins. A few weeks ago I removed one Twin (because of comments in this forum I have read quit some time ago, but I was sceptical). One amp really is more musical. I also reinstalled the second Twin again to be sure...

Re: Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

I have not felt the need to set anti-skating as low as what you have found which makes me wonder if Linn didn't put a little too much anti-skating on your arm when set to 0. I don‘t know anything abut the mechanics inside an Ekos but I also believe my arm behaves out of the norm. This evening I tri...

Is your SE an early one?
No it‘s a brandnew Ekos SE/1.

Re: Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

Thanks David. At least I‘m not alone. Although I believe the phenomenon is more pronounced in my case, it‘s not possible to balance the arm precisely when everything is set to zero. So how do dealers set up a new arm properly?
BTW in the meantime I arrived at 0,7 and most records sound very natural.

Ekos SE/1 Anti-Skating Problem

Hello Two Months ago I upgraded from Kore/Ekos2 to Keel/Ekos SE. While it improved everything I noticed an unpleasant, harsh Sound on many favourite Records. I tried everything (Torque Settings on Headshell and Arm Collar/Change the Belt/Cartridge Weight etc.) Step by Step there was an improvement b...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Here's another personal experience with the Radikal Motor problem: About six weeks ago my dealer installed a Radikal/Urika/1. It's a great improvement over the Lingo2/Linto. Although I wasn't completely happy. I thought it needs some run in time. After four weeks it was a bit better but I still had ...

Re: A tracking weight experiment for LP12 owners

Hello This was a opportunity to get down to business and check the best setting for the Cartridge. My dealer set it up about three years ago. The weight was at 1.63 and the Anti-Skate at about 1.7. I did three sessions on three evenings. (When doing a tune-dem I'm never quite certain of the outcome:...
