I'm reopening this thread, in case someone has found the optimum torque values for tweeter and bass units by now.
Ninka woofer 1.2 Nm
Ninka tweeter 1.2 Nm (+2 steps if you have the CAL 36/4 tool, if you don't then 1.2 Nm will do)

Re: Quality digital music: Do You Buy or Rent?

I have a question: Could the alternatives in the poll be rephrased? As they now read, I don't know what to answer.

Buy - free?
For the rest of time - means?
Tense: Past, present, future

Re: Slipsik 7

Thanks for getting back to me. After reading all the reviews and praise, I'm not surprised that you would struggle to improve on the 7.1. Is the option to upgrade a 6.1 to a 7.1 going to be available for the foreseeable? It would help me break the costs down a bit if I got a 2nd hand slipsik first ...

Re: Slipsik 7

I think I have made up my mind on a Slipsik 7 for my next upgrade. I was just wondering what the optimum cable length is from the slipsik to the pre-amp? I'd be looking at about 6 - 8 meters. Is this pushing it? Also... any rumours about a slipsik 8 yet? Cheers Jim Hi Jim! I know that 10 metres wor...

Re: Linn T-Kable worth the upgrade

Frankly I wasn't aware of any two new versions (the ones you said look almost identical). Couldn't it be just the finish of the Linn DIN arm plug that has changed?

The old grey T-kable doesn't have a plastic DIN arm plug but a black metal one made by SME.

oh, now I see you replaced it with the same type (black plastic DIN plug and non slotted connectors) I was under the impression it was the newer type - so good we found that out.
The DIN plug is made by SME and its housing is in metal, not plastic.

Re: Linn T-Kable worth the upgrade

Neither have I. But if the Linn DIN arm plug is better than the SME it replaced, my guess is that the latest version is the best.

As there's also been some problems with old grey T-kables (in particular the ground lead becoming bad), I suggest choosing a new one.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Here are four new clips that I find interesting. They have nothing to do with the Karousel (except that it was obviously used) but are another small change in the system.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I think no 2 is clearly better. No 1 seems more like playing the same notes a the time. The chord changes and melody is much more easily perceived in no 2. Interesting! I previously listened to the first track only. Now I just had to listen to them both. In the first track I can't really hear what ...

Re: Phono Stage in Majik Kontrol

I probably shouldn't be answering this, but as I've done exactly this demo so many times (with Exotik/Majik/Akurate Kontrol as well as DSM's), I can say that Fono has not been considered a step up by anyone present during the comparisons.
You need a Gaio to better the Linn MM board.
