Re: Random thoughts on hifi

Nice video. Plenty to contemplate in that, but perhaps beyond the realms of a hifi forum.

Coincidently, I've been getting into 'Crisis, What Crisis?' quite a lot the past couple of weeks. Good album.

Re: Random thoughts on hifi

I was a bit confused by the fist bit but I’m all for musical timing, whether the fist is near of far.

Thanks for the clip. Interesting to watch them at work.

If I come across as a person that tries to evangelise my taste before people vote I can only apologize. This should be a place where everybody can speak their mind freely within the forum rules.

That NAD player is always sounding good after all the effort you put in. It does seem closer to the LP12 than I recall. We don't want you getting it too close though beck! 😁

My dealer spoke to Linn today. The motor is isolated from its casing and the casing is touching the foot where it has no affect on the Trampolin.
Maybe true for the Trampolin but the touching motor definitely had a negative impact on the musical performance of my deck as a whole.

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Don't you have a Lack table Defender? I think old school plinth feet work well with the Lack and I would have thought fixing the touching motor is more important than the type of baseboard in your case. However, in order to better understand the impact of the motor issue, you will need to do it in s...

Re: Brikin' It !

Yes, NAC52. I think it has it's own PSU too. In the old Naim video, you can see Julian, Guy and a couple of others discussing the prototype. Never had the chance to year one. They still sell for big money.

What about paying for someone to construct a brick wall behind the briks, or is that not possible?

Re: Netgear GS108T Power Supply

Wow, this is tough. You have a great sounding PSU there.

Tbh, either is very good and the system sounds very musical.

I think yours is slightly more musical. It has a gentler sound though so hope you're not missing too much impact.

Keep going, you're doing a great job.

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

Bought K92s as a cost effective and easier to drive replacement for my aging pair of HD650s after my daughter sat on them. More info coming through and musical but need more running in I think. Bass doesn't seem as tuneful yet.

Got Alexandra Savior "The Archer" this week which is pretty good. It's not new but today I'm having another go at my only Rush LP, "Moving Pictures". Some very good playing but - I dunno - not really doing it for me and he voice grates. 6) Chicago "Transit Authority" (two LP set) Columbia record lab...

Re: Jelco throws in the towel ...

I suppose they don't have to have a Majik level arm. They could simply use the Akito. Gonna whack up the entry point though. I wonder how tempted they are - do away with all that agro and help minimise the product line.

Re: Jelco throws in the towel ...

What are the realistic options do you think then Tom?

Didn't realise the Basik was outsourced.

What about a cheaper Akito (with a different name) assembled in Scotland? It's gonna bump up the cost but Linn would have more control and it would be a genuine Linn arm.

Re: Jelco throws in the towel ...

Back to ProJect or an alternative like Rega? Or should they resurrect the Basik?

Anyone know why they ditched ProJect in the first place?

Re: Karousel

Yes, the Cirkus clips have a nice flow to them. However, when I compare clip 4 I do find the piano notes make more sense on Karousel. Having said that, I still struggle a bit with the timing, such as in clip 1.

Re: Karousel

I still maintain that occassionally the musical strengths of two options can be split. When this happens, some folks seem to experience the benefits of A and some experience B. Others will hear a mix of the two to varying degrees. I don't think this is very common but could be what you're experienci...
