Linn Akurate DS/3 Katalyst

Black, excellent condition. Was originally built as a DS/1 and was Katalyst and Exaktlink upgraded at the Linn factory in April last year. Invoice for the upgrade from Linn retailer (Peter Tyson) will be included with the DS and will have the full balance of the transferable 5 year warranty. Origina...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

That wouldn't fly. SO is intended to be applied just once per system (after preferences have been sorted and TuneDem'd of course) It wouldn't be impossible to incorporate a subscription mechanism. SO on your device could just ensure that no more than 30 days go by without being able to validate its...

Re: Last orders for Standalone Linn DS Players 30/9/2018

Possible contradiction with the OP then. Stating that Linn will continue to offer upgrades for these products is a bit ambiguous and I was just trying to seek some clarity.

Re: Last orders for Standalone Linn DS Players 30/9/2018

Last Orders for Standalone Linn DS Players ... Owners of standalone DS Players can be reassured that Linn will continue to offer service and upgrades for these products. A newly ordered Akurate or Klimax DS will be the Katalyst variant, obviously, but have Linn actually said they will offer hardwar...

"Our best audio circuitry ..." Mmmm, ok, if it's referring to the analogue input handling, fair enough.

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

I think it might refer to eliminating the DS products. And personally I did find it a bit confusing (DS, DSM some with, some without Exakt links, some with some without analog output). J. Exakt only output is renamed now: https://www.linn.co.uk/music-systems/klimax/network-music-player Matt Still a...

ThomasOK, did Linn make any commitment to include the DS range in future firmware releases, or will that come to an end as well now?

^^^ New, more processor intensive, version of Exakt possibly? To be called Exakter, no doubt :-) Would explain what the "upgrades" are.

Re: Linn forum down?

That'll cut off the market for those customers who just want a Linn DS as their digital streaming source in an otherwise non-Linn system (or still sticking with their Kontrol). Perhaps it wasn't that big a market anyway, but it looks like it's "our way, or the highway" Not exactly, given that the S...

Re: Linn forum down?

From 1st October 2018, the line-up will purely comprise the DSM models (now Majik DSM, Selekt DSM, Akurate DSM and Klimax DSM) that were introduced in 2011 and added a preamp section with digital and analogue connections to the original (and soon-to-be ditched) DS models. That'll cut off the market...

Next year Linn will also make a headphone amplifier module, and those with an amplified Selekt DSM will have the choice to add a surround sound module with 5.1 speaker terminals, 4 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI output and support for DTS and Dolby Digital Plus audio formats. The ‘coming soon’ list for 2019 a...

Re: Linn forum down?

If I had one criticism of the design though :-)

That motif on the top looks a bit 1980's and already dated

Re: Linn forum down?

I might have had a bit of fun on this thread at Linn's expense, but the new box does look very nice and even if not for the majority here I'm sure there's a market for it.

Re: Linn forum down?

It all makes sense now. I imagine the discussion in the boardroom when this was revealed went something like this: - And what does ours look like? - That is ours - It looks just like a Naim Uniti - Well, maybe, just a bit, - No, we can't do that. Send it back - Too late, we're already late to market...

I've seen the photo. Those speakers are B&W 804 D3's for sure, interesting they are not using Linn speakers for showcasing the new electronics. I've heard it said, by someone in Linn, that they are not a fan of B&W loudspeakers due to the very different materials used across the various drivers lead...

Re: Linn forum down?

A thought has just occurred to me. This story has become viral, reaching thousands of audiophiles who would never normally take any interest in a new Linn product. If this was intentional, it could be the best marketing exercise since that cheeky monkey Mr Shifter asked “Do you know the pianos on m...
