Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

The way you describe it, it does sound like the ground is missing on the left output of your bluray player. If you have a multimeter, you can measure the resistance between left and right grounds on the bluray player. If it's not close to zero ohms between them, the left one is likely broken. Have y...

Eli7,

do you think you could describe in what way the Akurate DS/3 was not for you?

Re: Naim Music Line power block

Thinking on this, might a Naim Music Line be a good replacer of the Blacknoise? These are quite cheap so would be ideal... I can definitely recommend the Naim Music Line power block! Where are you located? I don't think it's available in US/UK spec. @Tendaberry: which Naim Music Line power block do...

Re: upgrade path

Today I had the opportunity to hear an LP12 again. It was the Majik LP12 / Jelco again. The Majik LP12 / Krane was no longer in operation because the crane had a fault. The bad impression of the Majik LP12 / Krane last time is probably due to this. Also from the party was a Cambridge Azur 851 Amp, ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I need to clarify one thing: The separate ground lead that runs in the middle of Linn's tonearm cables -the chassis ground - seem to corrode slightly with time on the grey T-kable. I've come across several old T-kables where this was evident and eventually it seems the connection can be lost. This i...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

Boazu upgrade cost, from version 1.1 to 1.3:

The approximate price in Sweden is SEK2500 incl VAT, plus shipping.
The approximate price in Europe is €250 incl VAT, plus shipping.
The approximate price in the US is $300.
The approximate price in the UK is presently unclear due to Brexit. :(

I've expressed high hopes for a Lejonklou headphone amp before on this forum, and by any measure, Fredrik delivered. Giella more than met my expectations.
Thank you for that wonderful review, teatime!

Thank you for this question, Karsten! I'm very happy to read your praise of Tundra. As you have probably experienced, the modest rating is more theoretical than practical.

Defender is right, the knocking comes from the spring rubbing and catching the top grommet. If you cut off the "neck" (upper part in the picture above), the knocking disappears completely. The only problem is that it sounds worse that way. Why that is the case I have never completely understood, you...

Thank you guys! I get happy when I read your posts above. I had one Kikkin saved on my lab. Late serial number and latest version; 2.2.

Re: Christmas recording

Thank you everyone for sharing these inspiring songs!

It's been a strange Christmas but every time I have listened they've made me smile.

Hard to pick a favourite, but OscarH's Jussi Björling is one of them. Lots of stories in Sweden about how powerful his voice was when you heard him live.

There’s absolutely no way on this earth that we can “understand” a musicians intent, particularly when they’ve been dead for 200 years! To truly understand their intent, we have to be able to c...
