Re: Lejonklou Boazu and D-class amplifiers

Hi,
I believe that Colin from Nord may be willing to lend a demo unit for a deposit and then if you can locate a Boazu a comparison can be done

Re: Makes of Speaker Cable

I have moved my equipment and the speakers are in their new placement. Thankfully, the original Linn Silver (2013) cables were long enough and I will not be buying new cables for the time being

Makes of Speaker Cable

I have just recently returned from a local Linn Specialist, were I demo'd Active ATC 19's. The subject of placement and speaker cable was discussed. We all agreed that to get the best performance from my current speakers it would be necessary to move them. I will post pictures later of the move. How...

Re: KDSM/2 as a DS

Hi, I have heard a back to back comparison between the KDSM and the KDS3, There is a small improvement to be gained by owning a KDS3, but Linn and many owners are going for the extra connectivity and flexibility that the KDSM offers. To clarify, are you saying that the non Katalyst KDSM/2 is virtua...

Hi All, I have been reading with interest the recent developments. I also now have a dilemma. I have the KDS/1 and a recently upgraded LP12. When I had the Urika 1 and Krystal fitted, Peter Swain came to my home. Whilst the LP12 sounded great, Peter commented that the speakers (Adams Artist 6 - Akti...

Re: Small floorstanding speakers?

Have a look at these: http://kudosaudio.com/x2/
I was at Peter Swain's a few weeks ago, I heard them played through a Klimax LP12 as well as my own LP12.
I am now considering changing from my Adam's Artist 6 Speakers Active which are small floor standers to these.

Re: Upgrade: Katalyst or LP12

Arm now exchanged, Krystal and Urika fitted.
The system sound amazing, so much clarity; no more upgrades for a while. I will be listening to a Kore v Keel spec. deck in the new year.

Update on sticking issue. I let a friend who has a Rega 6 turntable borrow the record's that was causing an issue. He was aware of which tracks were at fault. There was no sticking or jumping as he put it. Peter is coming to my home with another arm; I have also decided to upgrade to MC Krystal and ...

Re: Upgrade: Katalyst or LP12

Sticking?
The record plays a few tracks, then there is a repeat of the same lyric or tune, with a clicking sound, sometimes it will clear itself, or I have to lift the arm and move to another track.
I dont recall this happening before.
Now, it could be dirt on the record

Re: Upgrade: Katalyst or LP12

Hi, I did get the arm and the kore through Cymbiosis, and he reset the deck. Peter did say that if I felt unhappy, he would swap the arm out of another demo deck. It could be that the records are in need of cleaning as most are okay. However, there are some that are brand new and were sticking on a ...
