Re: How we define "good sound"

I’m sorry, but I really don’t get this idea of “musical understanding”. In fact, I think it’s a nonsense. 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...

Re: Karousel

Now I've tried the 2.6+5 setting again, coming from 3.4+4. I also tried the 4.0-3 setting which was my first stop. I must have messed up the setting for 2.6+5 the first time around, I see from my notes that they have different reference for 2.6 (I write down the setting relative to a reference mark ...

Re: Karousel

Exciting report Thomas! I will definitely try the 2.6+5 setting again! It was my first test just after i loosened my very tight original installation which had been running in for months. So maybe that's just not a fair comparison. Excited to hear that Lejonklou installed a karousel too :)

Re: Karousel

Now I listen to a b-side I seldom play. Tune called "Til I kiss you", really upbeat, happy and romantic. And for sure I want to dance with nice girl and kiss her! :D

Re: Karousel

Yes I experienced such an improvement with 4.0-3 so I just needed to take a breath :) Today I tried 4.0-4 which sounded little worse to me. Then I went for 3.6 and it sounded interesting. Went on to 3.4 and it sounded interesting. Then I tried 3.4+4 wich is "pretty much equivalent to 3.5 Nm" as Nico...

Re: Karousel

Did you try 3.5Nm as Linn recommends? If so, how did that compare to the other settings you tried? No I did not since ThomasOK said he didn't like that with Keel. I will try some more to find optimal-optimal notch, incredible improvement last night! One advantage to work with your own system is tha...

I just removed the platters with the LP12 still on shelf. Then fixed the keel in the corners with cardboard. Then used the torq tool to tighten Karousel bearing to Keel subchassis. Assemble platters and listen. Remove and retighten, assemble again and listen, so on. So you torqued the Karousel from...

Re: Karousel

First of all thank you Thomas for suppling us with hard earned torque values! Tonight I started trying myself. I installed the Karousel late august. I just tightened it on feeling but I was holding the clean Keel in my hands when installing with a wrench so I noticed today I had got really tight. It...

Re: Ekos SE tonearm Cable Options

Personally I would just go for Klimax LP12 an Lejonklou Entity and the grey T-Kable as recommended here. The lot is built around each other, very special and balanced. Get the perfect set-up of the LP12 and best possible shelf for it. Then you can get your favourite hi-end cable from Entity to the a...

Nice to see you here :) Actually I've not heard LP12 with Armageddon, rather cool to have a naimed LP12 too of course. I have not heard Karousel in flesh either but it seems like a good idea and I am aiming for one myself. Klimax Radikal has stunning looks in black I think, just like LP12 with ARO a...

Re: Lejonklou Boazu Integrated Amp

I have been with Naim-amps and speakers for many years. My source now is Linn KRDS1 LP12-aro-geddon-kore-adikt into LK Gaio. I used to run a nice 82-hicap-250 on Neat speakers. I love Fredrik’s approach on music and gear and have been curious about the Boazu for some time. After being shocked at ho...

I have used Linn Uphorik with the black mogami ekos SE XLR T-Kable as recommended by the designer of Uphorik. I have used Uphorik almost since it came out and loved it year after year. XLR T-Kable was a very nice feature and sounded great as replacement for my original grey ekos SE t-kable which sta...

I think the Synkron filter which most likely become available second hand anytime soon at Tonläget HiFi, Gothenburg is probably most 'bang for buck' upgrade. The new internal filter is even better and more convenient when installed but rather costly to get done compared to the first option. 'i like ...

Re: Klångedang T1

I can't say really but I think Klångedang T1 is more musical than almost every Linn loudspeaker and sounds very powerful and organic but still clear/pure somehow in that midst of warmth. They may sound a bit mushy compared to passive Akudoriks, but they'll probably have a more holistic sound with so...

The Legendary Klångedang T1 still for sale :) In worst case I'll also consider shipping. Most sensitive in that case would be the hardwired filters but I could probably find some really good packing for these. Send me a PM if you're interested.
