Re: TMV´s system

LP12 ~83 -> fluted walnut ~93 Cirkus -> Karousel Lingo 3 -> ARadikal I have also upgraded Klångedang T1 from external SHW filter to Revision 6. SHW had it´s charm but R6 is so much better. With Lejonklou Slipsik and Boazu...

Re: Where to go from here... a dangerous question to ask!!

For better music playback you could skip the phono stage (for now:) and buy a Karousel instead and then sell the amps and buy a Tundra. Better motor control is also a good option.

Re: Karousel

Klimax LP12 is boring VS Akurate with Karousel. Really? 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. Not the same comparison but after comparing Klimax LP12 with Circus or Karousel ...

Re: Suggestions - Rega Planar 8 Cartridge

You ca start by replacing the needle with an AT95 needle. Then you have money over for a slipsik. (But maybe adikt+gaio is better?)

Re: Karousel

My local Linn dealer wrote this at tonlaget.com. Otroligt bra - Till att börja med har vi Karousel på Akurate LP12:a - och en Klimax LP12 med cirkus låter tråkigt i jämförelse! Pris för ett uppgraderingskit inkl innertallrik 9910kr. Solklart den mest prisvärda uppgraderingen av LP12:an genom tiderna...

Can the LP12, Kandid, no Urika, connect to the MM phono stage of a McIntosh 4100 receiver?
Now I understand. Kandid is a low level MC pickup and will not work well with the MM phono stage. A transformer could be used before the MM input to get the right levels.

Re: Radikal connection question

With Urika I you need to connect to a line input but with Urika II the conversion to digital is done in Urika and connected to a digital Exakt interface.
Urika is only for MC, there are no MM variants to be used with the Radikal PSU.

Re: TMV´s system

I've been looking at the Volumio Primo, which seems similar to your digital source. Is that more or less correct? Any thoughts about the Primo? Hello Billy, the Primo uses the same Thinker Board S as I am but with another integrated DAC. I have no idea how it compare to Thinker Board S and Gigaport...

Re: Akudorik / Akubarik

"we feed in the digital output from our reference Naim NDS/555PS streamer" to the Akurate DSM is the only way I can think of. So DSM is not connected through Ethernet, instead they use the NDS as digital source to the DSM. Clock is now coming from the NDS and is recovered in the DSM, could be better?

Re: TMV´s system

Upgraded my digital source from KRDS/0 to Thinker Board S, Gigaport HD+ DAC and Volumio SW

Much better musical understanding and more information, but the KRDS/0 has a more smooth sound.
An AMAZING upgrade for the money, I´m very happy with my "mini HAKAI".

Re: GIGAPORT HD/HD+

The main reason to support 96k or higher is to be able to use FLAC files with these sample rates. If 96k is better compared to 48k is another question but I agree that the value of high sample rates seems low. I'm using GIGAPORT HD+ with Asus Thinker board S and Volumio up to 96k so it's possible to...

After a forum SW update a while ago I can no longer see the last posts on the Board Index page (https://www.lejonklou.com/forum/index.php). It is possible for desktop view and before the update this was also possible on my mobile (Android).

Re: TMV´s system

OK, good proposal! I have now updated the first post. I did upgrade from Kinki 2 -> Slipsik 7. I was thinking of upgrading to a Gaio and not Slipsik because I had a feeling that Slipsik had a bit analytical HiFi sound. However, with Slipsik 7 there is only music. For sure a lot of information but in...

Re: Thoughts around a Lejonklou Streamer

After a Lejonklou demo in Göteborg we discussed Hakai and DACs.

But you are doing phono amps so why not do a killer DAC to be used with dif...

Re: Slipsik 7

I listened to Slipsik 7 two times before buying it. First time I compared to Gaio 2 that I was thinking of upgrading to but Slipsik 7 pulled out the music so much better. Second time I brought my Kinki 2 to my dealer and also compared to a Slipsik 5.1. Kinki 2 was a bit dull compared to Slipsik 5.1 ...
