Re: LP12 Radikal problem

My dealer spoke to Linn today. The motor is isolated from its casing and the casing is touching the foot where it has no affect on the Trampolin. Maybe true for the Trampolin but the touching motor definitely had a negative impact on the musical performance of my deck as a whole. Same here, total n...

Re: Latest records to enter your collection

A small suggestion to all: When posting here we could pick out a favorite track among the latest records and promote it with a youtube link or the like. It will make it easier for us to be inspired and get into music we did not know about beforehand. :-) Good idea, I never thought of that... Cheers

Thank you Tony, that is what I want to know about ST-2.

You're welcome V.A.MKD, I'm glad to help! Although the antenna's performance makes it easy to recommend.

Re: Karousel

That is a good point Daveyf... I have owned my Cirkus bearing for about two years, before that, I was using an original bearing. I can tell you that IMO the Cirkus is a major improvement over the original bearing, and it has been that way since the first day. I can see no reason why the new Karousel...

Re: Karousel

I haven't heard anything about the Cirkus eventually sounding worse than the original Linn bearing system. But based on the Karousel design changes, it seems unlikely it would sound worse than either of the previous Linn bearing systems. However, it would be interesting to know if anybody else has e...

I don't know of too many specific Dynavector/Entity pairings but one customer is using a DV XV1S with it and is very pleased.
That's not surprising to me, the Entity is an excellent phono preamp!

Re: Tony Tune-age System

Here's a few current pictures of my system, although not much has changed visually. The Entity did replace my Urika, which can be seen in the pictures. But the Ekos SE/1 tonearm doesn't look much different than the original Ekos SE, and of course the Karousel bearing system isn't visable. And as of ...

Re: Karousel

It's been ten days since the installation of my Karousel bearing system, and I wasn't sure if there would be a burning in period. However there does seem to be a little bit of burning in, but just ever so slightly...nothing extreme. In a nut shell, it just plays music like never before!!!

Wow, that's unfortunate! They certainly were a good tonearm maker, and I didn't know Jelco was in business for 100 years. Many audio companies have never, or will never last that long!
