Re: New bases 242

The new bases definitely help with improved sound and definition. I think if you listen without expectation before fitting and then after fitting, you will hear the real true difference. I didn't need to reposition speakers with the new bases. Once you have them, you will realise they are a must. It...

Re: Place the electronics in a separate room

From my experience, adding a weight on top of HiFi gear does not help. Whilst it may reduce some vibrations (Which I could tell it did) I have found it to reduce musicality and make it less enjoyable to listen to. This was on klimax & Akurate gear. On a related but slightly different note, I have us...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Ok that's the best my lp12 has ever sounded. I carried out the modification on Sunday and the sound is more coherent, a bit more expressive but the bass timing and quality of bass is one of the best noticeable improvements. To give some background: when I had a keel and radical fitted by a Linn deal...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Hi Spannko,

Thanks for the info. I think it would be a little too tricky for me in reality to try and source 3 different wood to try. Especially as I do not have a jig... I need this to be a one-time affair..

Cheers.

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Hi Charlie, I guess you mean, remove the trampolin feet (only) & replace with solid feet? I must admit i was sceptical about why a trampolin (springy) base would be better than a solid base, especially now as I have it sitting on a good wall shelf. However now I have a trampolin, I wouldn't bother c...

Hi All, I will be carrying out the modification myself this weekend. I would appreciate some help please: 1. From my local hobby shop I could buy Balsa wood or Basswood. Does anyone have a view on what would be best? From Google 'Balsa will sand easier, but Basswood won't crush. You can squeeze a pi...

Re: From lingo 4 to radikal?

Hi Henrik, I did a Lingo 2 to Radikal upgrade and it was worth it. 'Worth it' is a completely crazy phrase because it really means 'if you spend that cash is the sound improvement worthwhile for you'. Ideally you would want to hear your L4 and Radikal A/B and then decide if its worth it for you. But...

Re: Wife issue ...

Hi Jörgen Apart from telling the wife to leave the speakers to me :) ! If sticking with Linn, the difference I find between the Klimax Twin & A4200 is that the 4200 is more clinical sounding (yes its got detail and is crisp, but I find the sound a bit cold), whilst the Twin has a more sublime sound ...

Re: Removing bottom of LP12 (Urika 1) to swap RCA leads - No Jig

Thanks for that advice.
Would I assume I need to unplug the tonearm cable also, to replace the RCA's? Is that just a simple 'unplug' & then re-plug, or anything else I need to watch out for?

If you have a wall fitted turntable - lift out the board from its mounting spikes lay two sturdy pieces of wood across put LP12 back and proceed. Move the wood around to give you access is necessary. donuk sunny downtown York Thanks, this makes the most sense and I do have a TigerPaw Vulkan wall sh...

Re: Removing bottom of LP12 (Urika 1) to swap RCA leads - No Jig

When I needed to get into my LP12, I rested it VERY carefully straddled across 2 dining chairs set on carpet to reduce the chance of the chairs moving. Between the two chairs was a step stool on which to rest the Tramp. A photo might make it a bit easier to make sense of the description: temp-jig.j...

Re: Linn Majik 109 and the competition

As good as the 109s are, a bigger speaker with bigger woofers etc. you will get a different sound. I like bass and a fuller range, so it is worth you listening to a fuller range, larger speaker, because I think that is what you are saying is missing.

Removing bottom of LP12 (Urika 1) to swap RCA leads - No Jig

Hi, I only want to sway the RCA phone cables that plug into the Urika and go to the preamp, for another set of RCA cables. However I do not have a LP12 Jig, and don't want to buy one, for what appears a very simple task. I do not plan to carry out servicing on the LP12 myself, and my Linn dealer is ...

Re: Ekos SE/1 w/Kore

"Mixed opinions on the Keel vs. Kore" For clarity, the Keel is definately better than the Kore, what I meant is that the Kore is still very good in its own right (and better value for money!). I would still go the EKos SE/1 upgrade first. Radikal testing, you would really have to do what Frederick s...

Re: Ekos SE/1 w/Kore

Hi Matteo,

I did the Akito upgrade to Ekos Se/1, but I also did the Kore to Keel at the same time, so whilst not definitive, my feeling is go for the Ekos Se/1 upgrade first.

I think the Kore is very good in its own right.

Hope that helps,
Chet.

Thanks for explaining.

Re: Sub Woofers Vibration Affecting Music (even when off)

Thanks for your comments.

Can you explain ''The best way to damp a loudspeaker electrically is to short circuit the drive units.' How would you do this and what impact would this have on the 'normal' operation of the passive speaker e.g. as a centre speaker.
