Re: ThomasOK's System

AFAIK, with all Linn factory soldered Silvers is only a small part of the woven copper shield soldered to the massive RCA. I don't know if this has an impact on the musicality. I suppose to solder the complete shield would cause thermal difficulties. My gut feeling is that soldering the complete sh...

I soldered my Silvers with these RCAs:

I didn't directly compare to Linn factory made Silvers but I am quite happy with them and they are easy to solder.

Re: ThomasOK's System

By the way, if I haven't mentioned it before I also did a test a while back with the newer Linn Silver mkII with the newer RCAs. While there were better and worse ones there I didn't feel even the best of them was quite up to my pair 7 of the original style Silvers. So I'm sticking to original styl...

IMO, it shouldn't be too difficult to try if you are able to switch off the landline modem but have still the functionality of a router with wifi.

Re: Setting up loudspeakers for the best tune

Yes thats 30 cm With your existing configuration of the Solidsteel tripods it doesn't seem possible to place the speakers closer to the wall. You have to turn the stands by 180 degrees to achieve that. OTOH, the speakers have a port on the back which might not be perfect for a set-up in close proxi...

I think they are sounding great. Maybe I am wrong by just comparing the volume of the speakers to the 3677s for filling a 50 sqm listening room.

IIUC, the soldering was done on a Linn Silver IC on the Källa end or the SM end or on both ends?

Curious how they daisy-chain when there a 3 outlets each on either side of the inlet - that suggests it's double daisy-chained, left & right, separately...
