Re: Exakt

.If Linn has truely left the concept of tune dem and source first behind I fear they will sooner or later run out of rope (I do not believe they have). Whether Linn have abandoned Tune Dem, or not, isn’t an easy question to answer. Actually it’s easy to answer. They removed TD from their homepage. ...

Re: Best sounding LAN cable for DS

I tried the Vodka and didn't care for it at all. The Cinnamon was better and the Microconnect was better than both. Agree, Also, Audioquest is generally worse than Chord. Tried all Chord and Audioquest cables and for example is Chord C-stream (60€) better than Chord Signature (1000€)... The Chord C...

Re: Is there a musical bluray-player? Replacing the Oppo BDP-105.

Owned a Oppo 105, and it's quite good. BUT you need to adjust ALL settings correctly by using tune dem. Took some time... Some of the stuff you should check befor getting into details. - Audio Processing: Front Left/Right and NOT Down-mixed Stereo - And set Dynamic Range Control to OFF - Front Left ...

I think the advise about tuning your system first before replacing anything is really good one! Many good advices in this post. If I can elaborate....

You intend keeping the max'ed out LP12 and Klimax Kontrol - AND need to compromise on the speaker side. Firstly, I'm happy you don't need to compromise on the front end! To compromise on the speaker side is not the end of the world. So get the best power amp you can, as it will for sure offer more m...

Guys, I really recommend using unfamiliar music evaluating musical understanding with Tune Dem.

Using familiar music, it's all too easy evaluating just sound.

No forum for much of this period.
Do you believe sales will now drop?
How many customers are happy with the forum decision?
How many are disappointed?
Based on a few forums I visit it’s 0 vs 50+

Sure it’s going to affect sales!
