Also, will you be releasing details about the differences between B1 & B2 and how they impact on both sound and musicality? Please!

Re: Speaker Choices for Lejonklou amplifiers…?

I’d be wary of any conventional loudspeaker with a low minimum impedance. Given that most drive units have an impedance above about 6Ω, a low loudspeaker impedance is likely due to an overly complex crossover attempting to compensate for shortcomings in the combination of drive units and trying to f...

Re: Which App ? (Streaming + Local)

Spannko, I suggest you try adding a GS108T (or 308). I've just tried going direct from my 4G router (Huawei B535-333) and quickly re-inserted a GS108T. It will be interesting to see if your 4G router produces a different result... I think I have a spare GS108T I could lend for tests Sorry for the l...

Re: Hermanns System

For me, A is a fairly uncomfortable listen to the extent that I feel quite agitated and restless. It suffers in both rhythm and tune departments. B seems to be completely different. It’s harmonious and restful.

Re: Loudspeaker Internal Wiring

It’s often said that the Dayton’s are rebranded Bennic’s, which is another capacitor Linn have used in the past. The Bennic’s are extremely difficult to get hold of and the only retail supplier I know of are in India. The European distributors don’t appear to be still in business and it looks like B...

Re: Speaker Choices for Lejonklou amplifiers…?

Hi Zee9, Your LP12 is an excellent source, and as you’ve discovered, bettering it digitally is difficult and expensive. As Pete has already suggested, the only streamer which plays music like an LP12 is the Källa. Do you want to be spending 4-6k on another source? There’s also the option of selling ...

Re: Neil Young and Joni Mitchell back on spotify

Spotify is more than good enough to show the difference between the 2009 remaster of Harvest and the 50th anniversary version. The 2009 is awful, but they seem to have done an excellent job on the 50th anniversary. Let’s hope we see more re-remasters with the compressors and limiters set at levels w...

I’ve tried K20, K400, 2.5mm² tri-rated cable and 4.0mm² tri-rated cable. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing particularly special about K20 or K400, they’re both composed of industry standard class 5 flexible annealed copper conductors encased in a PVC insulator. However ,there are different types...

I love the look of your rig Stevan! For myself, I prefer a more visually modest system, but occasionally, my crazy audiophile other half rears its ugly head! I’d really like to hear a video clip of your system in action, if you can find the time 🤞

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

Spannko and TMV, you will be at least partially happy. The Boazu 2 will definitely have the darker, more grey logo - Fredrik likes subtlety and is pretty obviously the king of anti-bling! Anything in that chassis will have the Källa logo look going forward just as the TM3 does. As to not having the...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Having read the comments and listening again, I can understand why most people thinking a combination of A & B’s best bits might be the best overall. I still have a preference for what I hear as B’s musicality, but what’s really interesting for me is that a solid core cable is really snapping at the...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

Going slightly off at a tangent. I really like the look of the latest featureless enclosures with the darker grey printing. Also, there’s been a trend with TV’s for a long time to remove any controls from the facia and put them on the side or top where they can’t be seen. I’d be perfectly happy if t...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

Fair enough. I still don’t understand the relevance of the question though tbh. The actual number given to the maximum volume setting is pretty irrelevant. It could be 42, 78, 100 or any number in between. Also, any number can be associated with any voltage level. So I’d say that A) The volume contr...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

Thinking about it a bit more, my preference would be three tiered. 1) The volume control should be engineered for maximum musicality, regardless of any other considerations. 2) Within the limitations of 1, the maximum volume should be set so as to prevent clipping with Källa. 3) If someone is using ...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

I suppose we really need to understand what the advantages and/or disadvantages are with limiting at 78 or 100. I must admit, I’m not sure how relevant the question is. Couldn’t the volume control be set up to max out at 100 whilst limiting the voltage output to ensure the amplifier stays within its...

Fredrik, when you say “remove the child safety feature”, do you mean remove the 78 limit and allow the amp to go to 100, or remove the ability to choose to go to 100 and permanently lock the volume at 78? Personally, I like the idea of limiting the output of the amplifier so that it always works wit...
