Re: Briks missing bass

Hi Colin, I know you've migrated from LP12 to a Rega because I still read PFM sometimes. Yeah, the mana thing. Actually, there are eight stages underneath plus the short briks stands. But I'm experimenting with that right now. I've thrown out the stages underneath the electronics and bought Fraim. I...

Re: Briks missing bass

Hi, Mr. Pig. Nice to see you again after so many years. Hope you are well and welcome to the forum. Yeah, the mana story. Unfortunately, I don't have the original stands anymore but I'm currently working on solving the bass problem. I have some ideas and the first one is being implemented these days...

Re: Karousel

Happy to welcome again someone in the community of the Karousel owners. Especially if Tom did the upgrade, the correct installation is guaranteed. Hope you'll give some musical impressions...

The plinth, is that Movingui?

Re: Karousel

You're welcome.

Regarding the Malia I only know vinyl or the download as mp3, which was allowed. The CD is unfortunately unknown to me. would be interesting to hear how the bass is actually mixed differently there.

Re: Karousel

I am curious if anyone knows this... Since I am not in the UK, and my nearest Linn dealer is several hundred miles away, I have always bought my upgrades from one of two sources...a) a Linn dealer in NY or b) a Linn dealer in San Francisco Neither of these dealers are able to mount the upgrades for...

Re: Karousel

Well that little button is the one you should use.

Re: Karousel

Listen to Fredrik and decide. I am still of the opinion that the clips do not show the true potential of Karousel. Well Defender, the room is pretty reverberant. Therefore the recording appears accordingly. The distance is 4.5m from system. I could try another recording much closer. Exactly, the bas...

Re: Karousel

After two days without music today the reset of Radikal was performed. But before I try to describe it, I know that the Karousel really needs time to run in. Even after three weeks I still notice slight changes. Again Anne Dudly's piano, which today is more present and fits better to the percussion....

Re: Briks missing bass

Hello alan, thanks for your background. Well I know that the wall behind the briks Bass I found again, although as written, not to the extent I was used to before. Sometimes there is a lack of pressure and this can really be the wall. At the moment I don't know. Anyway, I am currently in the process...

Re: Karousel

Hermann and Thomas - did you reset your Radikal after fitting the Karousel? The Radikal seems to have a learning procedure and it might be better to reset it as the learning was done with the Cirkus and the friction behavior of the Karousel should be different. It can do no harm and might give a be...

Re: Karousel

I’m sorry to say, but I’m also in agreement with most of us here. Sonically, the Karousel is a great improvement, however, musically, it’s a huge disappointment. To me, it makes everything sound badly out of tune. Hopefully, it’ll improve with more usage 🤞 That will show Spannko like a few days aft...

Re: Karousel

A question to those who have installed the Karousel: Is the inner platter still made of the same material as before? Is is different at all? Somebody claimed it's now made of stainless steel, which I don't believe. The bearing housing is made of stainless steel, that's clear (as Linn says so). I ha...

Does it really matter? I didn't change the clip, didn't see the point. Why should it be replaced?

Re: Briks missing bass

I agree with Beck unreservedly, thank you very much. I remember early times when we used to lie on the floor with speakers at our ears and listen to Pink Floyd, Hendrix, etc. Today I sit in front of my system and remember the intensity of those experiences. Pure music. At that point I'm back thanks ...

Re: Briks missing bass

Thought I'd get the question, and maybe I wouldn't have to give the answer... ;-) The reason for improvement is a change in the setup. As a long time Mana user I came to the conclusion to have sound stages that don't work in the stack. Which work individually, but not stacked. Admittedly, I have not...

Thats correct. Plus some screws I couldn't match. So there is a little more in the kit than is commonly shown.

Re: Karousel

Hello! I asked my local Linn dealer for a Karousel upgrade. He told me he would charge 150€ on top of the 890€ for the installation. That is because he would need about 5 hours to install it. He doesn't agree with Linn politics concerning the Karousel upgrade to be free of installation charge. Is t...
