Re: Source Files: What's on your wishlist for Kalla?

yes that is the clever move - I wouldnt even mind in having some of my favorite files directly stored on the IPhone/Ipad if that would make a difference in tune compared to let the Iphone or Ipad stream it from the NAS or other sources

Re: Four years in the making

why I said what I said is the following quote from Fredrik which I had in my memory: „I have the AK4497 but haven't heard the 4499. Even better sounds promising. There are also some other new chips around and then there's R2R DACs, which require an extreme amount of precision in the resistors, but t...

Re: Four years in the making

Sounds great :-) Will it allow streaming from Qobuz and Spotify? What is the interface for connecting a DAC? Thanks Matt why do you think you need to connect a dac? my guess is we might see a resistor ladder dac as thats what Fredrik is really good at - selecting the right components to an incredib...

Re: Four years in the making

when I saw Fredrik and shortly after Erik selling his HAKAI and the Intel hard drives I knew there is something big to come. Any ballpark for price? Below 5000 Euro or below 10000 Euro? Or above? Actually I thought I was done with Digital but ... (there seems to be always a but) I wish you big succe...

Re: Entity MC

hey Tony great to hear that your upgraded Entity (gold) has arrived.
Bad news first: I was wrong, there is more run in involved than I thought and was initially obvious.
Good news: it will improve from the stage you already like even more.

Re: Lejonklou pre into Linn Majik DSM

its interesting how people are different - I can understand when you are used to using an app for everything it might seem strange to use the remote control. However in my case the volume control for the Sagatun is simply the best thing besides its musical qualities. I am turning the volume a lot up...

Re: Linn Launch Event

here is what I expect - for that price for a source component it has to be not only on par with an LP12 at half the price but better - and the noise level is not the measure for comparison. If thats the case - respect. I hope they dont get embarrassed by another company which starts with an L this c...

Re: Linn Launch Event

the lower noise floor is certainly not what makes a difference - the noise floor with Katalyst was already close to the limit of the instruments to measure it my LP12 is noisy beyond comparison so if noise is the narrative than good luck for Linn ... as already said they are not the first company wi...

always impressed with your „against the mainstream“ approach - what I mean by that - I still remember the LP12 with Valhalla (or was it a Lingo) against the LP12 with Radikal comparison where I was impressed how close both have been together ... probably because of your black bearing.

Re: Linn Silvers

yes the newest ones are the Interconnect II - you have the earlier version. Are you sure those are orginal factory ones? otherwise the only idea is that the barrel is sitting too tight on the cinch connector (other side) but some simply like the blacks more and blacks have the advantage of not sitti...

Re: Linn Silvers

I've just swapped out my Hakai Linn Black interconnects for 'nearly new' Linn Silvers. Initial impression is that the Silvers sound more impressive but harsh. Definitely less enjoyable than my Blacks, which I've been using for about 10 years. Should I stick with the Silvers? How long should I give ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

did you checked your Krystal is aligned in a good way - mine had to be turned clockwise with using what is possible with the 3screw attachement. Also levelling the arm to be 100% parallel improved it.
