Re: Dynamik psu

I think Thomas is correct and Linn never offered the Dynamik upgrade for the Majik Kontrol and Majik CD since they used a different PSU, called mini-line, which was later used in the Radikal as well. Some time after the first Dynamik upgrades were made available, Linn offered a Dynamik upgrade for t...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I am having a beck-like moment where I struggle to hear differences between digital recordings. I did pick up on slight differences but, possibly cos I'm familiar with the vinyl, I was left a bit cold by all three. Sorry Spannko. Maybe I'm just too tired again - been another long day.

Re: Oscar's system and first world problems

A Linn sneaky can usually be picked up for £500 and when used with an integrated amplifier ( ie not using the internal digital volume control or amplifier) can sound better then CD players costing a lot more- I went from a Linn Ikemi to the sneaky and remember being happy. I thought it had an analo...

Re: Linto vs built in MM/MC Board

Slightly odd scenario. I can't answer exactly. However, I had Majik Kontrol with MC card, connect to what was at the time a top-spec LP12 with Keel, Ekos SE and Akiva. I upgraded to the Linto and had mixed feelings. It was more tuneful but I also felt lost something else which I couldn't put my fing...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I had a quick listen this afternoon and wasn't sure but using the speakers on my screen is the worst.

Jusf listened again now and struggling again. Maybe Just too tired now. Besides you have concensus.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Do we have any idea (or even theories) as what makes one switch better than another?

These small Netgears have been promoted for many years now - any clue what makes them any different to the multitude of other brands out there?

The topmost / leftmost clip is the Cisco (at my end) so I preferred the Netgear.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

The bottom clip makes more sense to my ears and I enjoyed it more. Also, listening to the top clip, I found the bass unpleasently boomy at times.

They are both sounding lively and fun though. I think you efforts are taking you in the right direction.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

It's the first clip that intruiges me most in a way. It's so different to the others. It sounds like music but it really isn't. So close, yet so far.

It would be great if you can share some of what you're doing. After all, we all have mains cables.

The cost of a cartridge

Firstly, I think Ron is saying that, with limited funds, everyone should be using a VM95 until they can get the remainder of their deck to top spec Klimax Radikal, Keel, Ekos SE/1, etc. And secondly, once ready for a cartridge upgrade, then you should save up for the very best before investing in th...

Re: If you where to start all over again.

After 30 years and one year with a lot of really helpfully people in this forum I have given up and bought an LP12 for Christmas. Happy Christmas :) An LP12 can breath life into music in a way I've never experienced with digital, even CD12 and Katalyst KDS. I still very much enjoy digital sources b...

Re: If you where to start all over again.

Interesting topic. The problem is you can't get the understanding without making the journey. So, the only option is the learn the lessons and then pop back in time which I'm struggling to achieve at the moment. I wish I'd got into vinyl a few years earlier but one good decision (for me) has been to...

Re: Playlist

Great Xmas present for any fans of Springsteen and vinyl. Their infamous European debut in '75 at Hammersmith Odean a couple of months after the release of 'Born to Run'. Lots of expectation but they sure delivered with what is said to be one of their best performances. Been available on CD for year...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Interesting comparison and a nice recording.

Clip 2 seems had more sense of direction and going somewhere yet at the same time seemed a bit hurried compared to clip 1. Overall I think I prefer clip 2 but I enjoyed them both.
