Re: New Karousel Vs TigerPawTranquillity

I also tried the Tranquility at home and yes it was different, emphasizing on parts of the music. I did not buy it but know some have been sold.
The Karousell is a massive improvement and makes a new Majik LP12 play more musically involving than a ARadikal Klimax deck. A ground breaking improvement.

Re: Karousel

Re: Karousel

My local Linn dealer wrote this at tonlaget.com. Klimax LP12 is boring VS Akurate with Karousel. I hate this kind of statements. Klimax LP12 has never been boring! I would much prefer them saying "Taking the LP12 to a whole new level." or something like this. You quoting something which the dealer ...

Re: M140 to Akudorik upgrade advise

Friendly warning: it’s going to cost more ;-) I did a similar swap from AEDSM with Majik Exaktbox I an Majik Isobarik 2 years ago to Akubarik as it was a great ex- demo deal First I had to run it with MDSM/2 + M6100. Horrible in comparison with my previous system The AEDSM Akurate Kat and 2xM6100. B...

Re: Ron The Mon's AT-VM95 Testimonial

The crazy thing is it sounds magical. The day I picked up my deck we did some comparisons. There was an LP12 running in a demo room into a very high-end system. The deck was Linn Lingo2/Cirkus/Kore/LP12/Ekos2/Adikt. This deck was $3k more than mine. The funny thing was I made Tom sit down and I did...

Re: Alternative top plate for LP 12

Hi, I bought a Khan top plate based on that review. It was the start of a long and expensive upgrade path as the music didn't quite appear to be involving. There is probably a reason for the plate being like it is. Øyvind I Expensive and valuable lesson in why one should not ‘believe ‘ everything o...

Re: Alternative top plate for LP 12

Hi, I bought a Khan top plate based on that review. Must have been around 2012/13. It was about the same time as I moved house got a different listening room and started to get back into spending on Hi-Fi again. It was the start of a long and expensive upgrade path as the music didn't quite appear t...

Re: When is an LP12 not an LP12?

As far as I have seen, LP12 is marked and developed as a product from Linn Products. Either as Linn Sondek LP12 or only Linn LP12 and covers the turntable, usually including power supply. Arm and cartridge being separate. Hence, if a different top plate, bearing, PSU etc is used, it's not a LP12 - b...

Re: Urika II

Urika 2 is a very large improvement over Urika 1 I don't see how you can make that statement, as the comparisons involved several different changes simultaneously. You may well be right, in the context of your exakt system, but the evaluation process appears compromised. See you point but I've comp...
