Is it weird to miss distortion?

Sometimes I find myself longing for the “loud, harsh, distorted sound of certain songs that I play in my 2010 Camry via CD player. It’s mainly the harder rock songs.. Tool, Highly Suspect, and so on. I recently arrived home while listening to a Tool CD and couldn’t wait to hear it on vinyl. While it...

I mean-there are no electrical parts to benefit from upgrade.. its simply a few pieces of material put together that move quietly du...

Symptom of lp12 out of level

I’ve been meaning to ask the group this question. Let’s say my lp 12 is not level. Checking with multiple spirit levels, the left side of the deck needs to be higher than it is. So.. what does an out of level lp12 sound like vs. on level? Next ? Is when leveling, my table sits on quadraspire wall mo...

Re: Mixing things up.. non Linn speakers?

Ian,
May I ask what sources you are currently using with your solos and 242‘s? When you listened to the Sonus Faber floorstanders, did you have N opinion on how they compared to 242s?

7 skeets..?

Could anyone suggest how I can go about getting a single skeet. I have 7 which renders them of no use. If not, then I’d be willing to help someone out if that was in a similar position. No sense in to form members not being able to utilize their skeets.

Re: 3k array material

Ian,
Komri 4K was originally plastic then metal.. earlier plastic ones were capable of being swapped out for the metal.
The 3K on 242 is metal..at least on the mk2.
I recall a thread somewhere talking bout painting array black. I’d Love to have black arrays..

Mixing things up.. non Linn speakers?

So the recent possibility of acquiring a or of Komri’s has got me thinking and wanting to try different speakers. I’ve only owned Kaber, 212s, Keileidh Tukans, and 242s. I’d really like to try different manufacturers. I’m a sucker for Sonus Faber, the older models as well as interested in Harbeth, D...

Re: In what world..Komri

So I’m thinking of passing on the Komris. The age of them as well as having on board amp modules as well as minimal dealer support, and no original boxes/packaging.. I don’t feel too confident. Not to mention I think Komris May be a difficult load for my amps to drive. Basically too many unknowns. I...

Re: In what world..Komri

Anthony, Thanks for clearing things up. So assuming I’m able to go audition this pair, is it safe to say that if they perform well being powered by 2 channels of amplification that They are in fact in passive configuration? Are there any visual cues to identify if they are in aktiv? When passive, ar...

Re: In what world..Komri

I just read the posts here again, Hans, FYI Klimax amps have never had aktiv cards installed internally. To go Aktiv the external Klimax crossover (looks like a Klimax amp) was necessary.
