Re: Routers and switches.

I'm reviving this thread again, this time with the focus on the router and not the switch. This was prompted by the fact, that after upgrading my internet speed at home, I also received a new router for free. The one I received was the current top of the line from AVM, the FritzBox 7590. This may o...

Hopefully it still covers ProLogic too.
Even more 'interesting' is the addition to LinnDocs yesterday

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

Good thinking! I forgot to check the mA specs.. doh! I now find many FRIWO 12V options on the local shop (Elfa) and some of them are even the brick type which I would prefer compared to the MPP15 design. On the other hand, it would be a gamble since AFAIK no one here tried them yet. Maybe I can cal...

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

Did someone try the FRIWO with the QNAP TS-109 which also happens to use 12V? I'd be really wary of that. The MPP15 is 15 watts, the original 109 takes 14.3 - and Ithink that might be the rating without a disc installed. It and the subsequent versions of the 109 were supplied wifh a 36 watt power s...

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

I have some weird network problems, it is acting up a lot lately. For instance knocking very gently on the board that the switch stands on, or touching one of the cables lightly - suddenly the music stops etc, connection is lost between BubbleDS and the DSi. It seems that especially the DSi gets co...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Not quite. You should compare these systems with each-other. 1/ the system with SO active 2/ the system with SO off, AND the system perfectly tuned Comparing a system with SO off, WITHOUT tuning the system to perfection is pointless. You need to compare both options at their best. SO assumes that t...

Well, once you know the filters you could at least tweak an existing V1 profile by adding custom filters and adjusting filters within the given boundaries. What I find surprising is the shape of the new filters. Less cut but much broader. Sound is impacted across a wider area of frequencies. No lon...

To be fair to Fredrik and others who aren't SO fans, they live with THEIR systems in THEIR rooms. Perhaps if they had YOUR electronics and YOUR room then perhaps things MIGHT be a little different.

I'm sorry Music Lover, but you are either missing the point or not understanding it. If you're suggesting prevention is better than cure then of course no one can argue with that. In principle.

Today I've made an approximation (in mono, obviously) of the SO v2 profile to try out on my Exakt system, making it a bit... Approksimate.

No, I think you have to have Davaar 65 (or whatever the current version numer is) to be able to apply the new style SO from the web.

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

For those interested in the new SO and don't mind tinkering a bit, you can see what filters the new SO is coming up with - but it's a bit of a faff to get to. Konfig creates a log of everything you do - and in that log is a copy of the current SO profile which it downloads from your DS. On a PC this...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

The point is that I suspect there will be no manually downloadable firmware before long. To be sure, you'd need to maintain a computer, ensure it receives no OS updates and keep on that a version of Konfig and firmware that you can revert to/restore. There's no maintenance required for the old Davaa...

It seems that firmware updates for the Selekt are applied directly from the internet, there's no intermediate storage on the computer hosting Konfig.
