unfortunately when I try to add a file (only 80kb) I get the below message:
"Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached"

How much should the Silver cable be in money terms, if you know?
New (replacement part) should be around 300 €.

The Akurate Exakt DSM has superior ADC’s than the Majik DSM, so any connected devices will sound better using the Akurate Exakt DSM. If you are onl...

Re: Questions of a newby to Lejonklou..

The Majik DSM has a "Digital Features" setting for each analog input. According to the instructions "Selecting Off allows an analog bypass audio path." So, yes, the MDSM has a DVC, but no, you don't have to use it on analog input unless you choose to. It is selectable on an input by input basis. Tu...

does anyone know the difference between the Linn current T-Kable, and the Silver cable, for the tone arm?
The silver t-kable (now standard with the Akito) is a lot better than the current black t-kable

Re: Questions of a newby to Lejonklou..

Congratulations on your purchase and it's good to hear you are happy with the musical improvements. I believe Tendaberry and Charlie1 are correct. The MDSM was built by adding the digital/streamer circuitry of the MDS to the Majik-I integrated, which was an all analog unit. I don't believe DVC has ...

Yes, the Silvers are a lot better than the Blacks but IMHO the sound that you describe as dark and compressed is due to the DVC in the MDSM ...

You need an analogue pre

Sorry, but what is the DVC?
Digital Volume Control

The preamp section in the Linn DSM’s is digital

I received the BJC Cat 6a a couple of days ago.

The comparison with my previous Lindy Cat 6 is embarassing.

Re: Cobra Dave’s system

Never heard of Jern speakers.

I noticed that you came from M109 ...

As for the upgrade, I would go straight to a Majik Lp12 with a Slipsik 7.

8.5 feet is better than 8 feet. But that might require an order directly from BJC.
Yes, unfortunately, on Amazon.com there are only default ft. lenghts (3, 4, 5, 6, 8 etc.).

Awesome to hear that this mod is having a positive impact in your listening experience. Years later, I'm still enjoying mine and remain reluctant to give them up. By the way, mine have been active since the mod.
Active with 6100 or x200?

Thanks

The Akudorik passive are the best speakers that I ever heard.
