'Focus Your Listening to the Fifth Level' lecture. In Swedish! Is there any chance we can get access to this lecture via a recording (youtube etc)? Or is it something that can only be conveyed live and in presence? It would be really interesting to take part of. We currently live 470km or a 5 hours...

Re: Latest records to enter your collection

Check out their video at https://youtu.be/B9FzVhw8_bY I also comes back to "the Racounters" at regular intervals. This is one of their most amazing videos. https://youtu.be/1qahZ-whM6o Will buy Elise Legr...

Re: Karousel

Thomas,
Have you tried to fine-tune the torque of the Karousel now that you have had it for a while? 4-5 Nm?

Re: Karousel

I picked up new LP12 at my favourite Linn dealer High Fidelity in Stockholm yesterday. We did a short comparison of two Akurate spec LP12s. One with Circus and one with Karousel. I had brought a "Non Hifi" record with me "MC5 - Back In the USA". The Karousel is clearly better. Musik makes more sense...

Re: Karousel

I heard a very clear improvement in all 4 clips with the Karousel. On the Baden Powell track, which at some point is slightly chaotic with the Cirkus, it gels much better and the drums are funkier. Frank's voice is much more intimate on the Karousel and I definitely feel the melancholy. And on King...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I think the CB160 might need a service. The switch from 250 got the timing back but music has not been as involving as it should.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I recently bought an Oehlbach Phaser, which indicates the correct phase for the appliance that you connect. I went through everything from computer, to router, switch, tv and stereo. It turned out to be a fairly big sound upgrade :-) Do the Oehlbach Phaser do anything different than a regular volta...

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.

Re: How good are phono stages in vintage Linn preamps?

I know this is an old thread but wanted to give my input. I have used a Lejonklou modified LK1 as a preamp. It was good with a raw direct sound. Lots of fun at that time. The LK1 was used with a AV5103 preamp and the rest have been used as phono stages with a Klimax Kontrol/1. From the LK1 I moved o...

New Lingo?

https://www.linn.co.uk/sources/turntables/power-supplies#lingo I was browsing the Linn website and saw that they have a (new?) Lingo. With a system that checks the speed of the turntable every revolution. New Lingo incorporates a motor speed management system and uses digital processing technology ...

Unless the speaker is at the same height not sure if it's totally valid test.
If comparing stands vs wall mounts then yes.

I prefer the stands in both clips. Charlie did you get the distance to the back wall right? The Kans sound a bit "punchy" to me on the wall brackets.

Yes, would be good to see them. I'm sure an LK100 drives them fine.
