Re: Weird clicking sound on startup - Tundra 2.5

I should have disconnected the WiiM mini and the dac one by one to determine what was causing that issue.

The issue hasn’t repeated itself so I will try switching off the other components to isolate what’s causing the issue if it ever happens again.

Weird clicking sound on startup - Tundra 2.5

I woke up this morning and switched our tundra 2.5 on and there was this weird clicking sound coming from the left and right speaker. I had just moved the tundra back to the bedroom after some tests in the living room. When I connected it back in the bedroom yesterday this issue did not happen and i...

Re: Zee9 ..... Coming back to Linn!

Few changes over the last few weeks. After asking on the forum about speakers that may work with Lejonklou amps I stumbled upon a premixed pair of Jean Marie Reynaud speakers. It’s an older version of the Bliss Silvers so probably from JMR’s time. Getting the dedicated stands was not an option due t...

Re: Another observation…..

I think the journey of audio is actually very very simple. To one listener brand x maybe interesting and brand y maybe not. Feel free to change the word brand with format, music genre and whatever else you may want. Does that make one better than the other? Yes but only to each individual person dep...

Re: Linn Ninka Kustone/polymer bases

They are hard to find but another member created a detailed diagram so that one could fabricate them in steel which sounded almost as good. I do have that file on the “Linn owners group” on Facebook. It should be in the files section.

Re: Linn Majik DSM/4

I spoke to Colin today and he said the amps in the mdsm/4 and selekt amp modules are similar but not the same. If I’m not mistaken he said the dynamic range on the Selekt amp module was 110 compared to 104/106 on the mdsm/4

So I would surely suggest a demo.

Re: Linn Akito/1 Refresh

Linn said the same thing after the Ittok was discontinued and the only arm they were selling at the same price lev...

Re: Pre-amplifiers/streamers for my newly acquired Tundra 2.2 Tarandus.

Now that the main system has also gone from exakt integrated to a passive system with a tundra 2.5 + Kabers the hunt for a good preamp is again on my mind. Has anyone tried non Linn preamps with a tundra. I know a sagatun would be most people choice but it seems like there are non in the used market...

Re: How to: add a RELt5i to the tundra 2.2 Tarandus via hi-level connection

Just an update. The stackable plugs from parts Express have been working well. It's just important to remember to loosen the screws when disconnecting the cables from the tundra.

So far working perfectly

Re: Linn Majik DSM/4

I have tried the mdsm/1 (not worth the money) the 2&3 (much better but the same SQ on 2&3 and the only difference is hdmi 2.0) I only enjoyed my last mdsm/3 with a tundra amp and was hesitant to try the mdsm/4. Recently I was sent some demo parts for an experiment for our main systems Selekt dsm. Or...

Well I managed to find a rather mint pair of JMR bliss silvers and a friend of mine picked them up in Toronto yesterday. He’ll be driving down towards me at the end of the month so I’m all excited.

I’m no lp12 guru but when I bought my deck due to the lack of funds I bought a used but fully serviced akito/1 from johnny (Audio Origami). That arm sounded fantastic for the money and I regret selling it. I would surely reach out to him as I think he’s really good and honest. I replaced the arm wit...

Re: Gaio 2.4 into Linn Kairn Aktiv Kaber system.

We use Kabers and used to have them aktiv and exakt with Akurate amps. Without sounding offensive if you want the Kabers to be more engaging, more fun is suggest getting rid of the Akurate amps. As good as they are they make the Kabers sound too thin and dry. A lejonklou tundra (even a single amp wi...

This was being used as just a preamplifier due to the cds being mostly unrecognizable. The preamp section also supports 5.1 with toslink and spdif inputs and has a very nice sounding Dac.
