Re: Linn Launch Event

Source First is all good and well, but being able to afford some sort of room with electricity is a prerequisite I’d say... Electricity is source first! :-) Good point! It’s a relief to have someone acknowledge I’m doing the right thing keeping the apartment rather than buying this new streamer ;)

Re: Apple TV to Akurate DS

It's surprising to get such different results, which makes me curious whether both test scenarios are the same. The reason I ask is that volumio Spotify (and spotifyd on Debian) have their own config, while each Spotify control point appears to have its own config too... I can understand that the l...

Re: Sweetspot

I like the Sweetspot, as others have suggested it does the “stereo stuff” well and when I do get to sit down I like that. But most of the time I’m somewhere else in the apartment doing something and I don’t enjoy the music less then. When off the Sweetspot the system does other things well. Overall ...

Hello, As promised a new set of clips here... A little tinkering with ‘something’ in my system. What I’ve done is cheap and fully reversible, but hopefully good.

Re: Streaming service

I have a hypethesis that I've been meaning to throw out here, now further prompted by RTM's very good playlist. It starts with a Swedish magazine named "Filter" that I read, long before I got into hifi and only rather recently recalled. Many years ago they ran a long feature about a man named Ludvig...

That is the true test - I call it 'wifedem' :) Only that's a bit limiting. How about sodem (or does that sound too much like sodom).

thats a good point!
As a non-LP12-owner I have no shares in this, but would a bug fix really count as an upgrade? I hope there’s more in store for you all ;)

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Hopelessly late here, after both the reveal and several forum big hitters. Anyway, since you provide two sets of clips to account for varying taste in music I stuck to Bruce for simplicity. I preferred 1. Maybe more “impressive” but here the clarity of the presentation goes hand in hand with the tun...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Do you remember the Basic tone listeners/ overtone listeners test? If I remember correctly they are: Basic tone listeners are more suitable for rhythmic instruments. Overtone listeners are more suitable for melody-leading instruments. Perhaps Naim speaks more to the basic tone listeners and Linn / ...
