Re: Mixing things up.. non Linn speakers?

I can completely understand you
Those companies come are on my list in case money comes in as surprise
Vandersteen
Dynaudio
Verity Audio
actually in that order.

The best is to trust people who hear many varieties and in that case I think Thomas is a good source of experience.

Re: Terminating K400 with Banana plugs

the way to go is with old Linn Banana plugs soldered on (with special solder, at a special temperature) at the optimal length

Re: Linn Skeets experience

Another idea is to set...

Linn Skeets experience

I would like to share an experience I made with Linn Skeets. Actually its a little bit more than that. I would like to give compliments to Fredrick about his work and dedication. I have the pleasure that Fredrick was producing a split K400 of the special length which also made it possible to not hav...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Do folks think that every system is critical down to a couple of mm or just the higher resolving ones? not sure, Fredrick and Thomas probably have done it for the most variety of speakers but my feeling is yes as it really feels like a peak. maybe some are more forgiving if its within the 5mm range...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Re: Donuk's system

interesting that it works for you - but x-check after a while. I am saying this because it not really worked whenever I had the chance to hear bi amping with two different amps. It might sound more impressive (hifi) in the beginning but also somehow disconnected. However Linn/Lejonklou pairing might...

hi crondani, that is great news as that means it would be even possible to build your own renew if you can source a board and buy an Dynamic power supply and build your own casing.

Re: EVENTS

There are many, many systems out there with one stereo preamplifier and two mono power amplifiers. But there are extremely few with two mono preamplifiers and one stereo power amp. I only know one which is the Passlabs XP30 from Nelson Pass. This one sells for 18000Euro. I have high respect for Nel...
