Re: Karousel

It seems that Linn is committing suicide offering an upgrade that for less than 1,000 € could transform an Akurate LP12 to a more musical device than a crazy pricey Klimax LP12 Who the hell will buy a Keel, an Ekos or a Klimax Radikal in the future?

Klimax LP12 is boring VS Akurate with Karousel.

Can anyone recommend a good replacement - I would like one of the most musical ones on the market as I am becoming increasingly aware of how important everything upstream of the streamer is in the digital domain.

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 €.

Re: Questions of a newby to Lejonklou..

¨When you connect sources to the DSM players, they are digitised, so if you connect a turntable for example, this audio is digitised in the DSM players. 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

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.).
