Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

This is one of those times I wonder if the first playing of clips doesn't have a problem. When I first listened to Clip 1 I thought something was wrong. Then I listened to Clip 2 and thought it was better. Then I listened to Clip 2 and Clip 1 a second time, in that reverse order, and preferred Clip...

We need open voting to discuss and educate each other. It is not easy to let go listening for sound more than music. Therefore it would be a shame if every voting ended up being “secret”.

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Hi all, Just joined the forum after reading this thread. Many thanks for the swift approval 😊 I’m on the verge of upgrading from the Lingo 4 to the Radikal, as part of the Karousel offer, but am now concerned that it will be touching my Trampolin 2 as my plinth is 65mm high. I have shown my dealer ...

The Catsnake is not bad but the microconnect is better, I need to try the Blue Jeans Cables.
Clips of that would be very interesting :-)

It is silly not to own one just as a backup. Buy the Conical version first. As you are listening, I guarantee you will not be thinking it can't track, has end of side distortion [/u][/i][/b], limited frequency response, bad separation, and all the other hi-fi myths out there.

yes even though I don’t question anymore if the Karousel is really better - I think it really is.

Isn't that interesting that with such a tiny change (wrong direction of a fuse) there is not much controversy here but with a big change like the Karousel there was much more difficulty to agree whats better. I dont mean to bring this topic up again but it is somehow strange. Hi Defender, Yes, defi...

I agree its common however not always the case. I also agree with beck that this is the main reason why many develop their systems in the...
