Re: Measurements of the Linn Utopik power supply

I agree with you that measuring helps to create a reproducible and stable comparison when you measure the right thing and when you know what you measure is important/ is responsible for the difference you hear. So yes for sure it depends what you measure. One example from my job experience: you can ...

Re: Measurements of the Linn Utopik power supply

Looking at the post on the forum by the designer, he does not come across as being unaware of what he’s doing.. So I’m curious to know if you’ve actually measured any of his products? Thanks. I think you have misread Fredrik‘s post he stated: „…made by a guy who has no idea what he’s doing to the m...

Re: A Newbie looking for suggestions

Good to hear you are happy ... but that was expected. The Hakai springwood 64 is referring to is also used as a source instead of the Källa - some would maybe even say that the Hakai development was the first step/approach in later developing the Källa. Please make a picture of yourself when you fir...

Re: A Newbie looking for suggestions

my recommendation for you is: look forward to what you are going to have and enjoy it and dont worry soo much about what would be next. When I look at your components I dont see a reason why you cant take time and enjoy it until a year or years later the opportunity will come to upgrade the preamp. ...

Re: Linn 50th Anniversary

It is simply not reflected to what I hear and enjoy and obviously others could make a better product than Klimax Kontrol. It just le...

Re: The conclusion of digital volume regulation

The logical conclusion to this discussion is that a simple potentiometer between source and power amplifier would give the best sound. Several posts and reviews on various fora have claimed otherwise (ie that an active preamp produces a better sound than the simple potentiometer). Numerous explanat...

Re: The conclusion of digital volume regulation

the same conclusion as yours
Linn is simply lying about the quality of the digital volume control. However that doesn’t mean that all are unhappy with the digital volume control because they don’t realize it as they don't or can't compare it to a good analog one.

Re: Harry Belafonte at Carnegie Hall

I once heard the orginal edition on a TD 160 and that convinced me that my path in trying to get as good or better with digital had a long way to go. So much emotions and music. It actually convinced me to give vinyl a go.

Re: JBL 308P and 708P

I ended up with my last „torque session“ at around 0.4Nm plus 5 notches I would like to know if someone also tried torques on the bass/mid chassis and ended up the same region.

Re: Hermanns System

if you dont hear it than it most likely is not there. I was always afraid of it and that actually held me back from installing solar panels on a perfectly south oriented roof.
Now I might think if it - maybe - maybe not - just to make Mr. Habeck unhappy.

Re: Linn KDSM/1 upgraded to organik,what to do with the old p.c.b

I only know that Linn is/was very strict not giving back the old pcb - only with a renew … where you actually pay a lot for an empty case with a power supply (but obviously with a high resale value). I dont know if they now give it away or if you just have been lucky. Isnt it just a power supply and...

hey Spannko thank you for your comments - but it was not meant as an a - b comparison. I just wanted to show how much fun the 308ps can be.
