Re: Mono Hi-Fi?!

If you want more indication of this listen again to the last clip I posted on the Playground thread - it was made from a new pressing of the Frank Sinatra Mono record "In The Wee Small Hours". I have a hard time imagining it sounding better in my room, Tony Tune Age seems to feel the same. That is ...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

Well, it looks like I can't post images or pictures through Photobucket anymore. They want to charge a monthly fee for the bandwidth usage. So until I find an alternative for storing images and pictures, I won't be posting any for a while. Earlier this week, Thomas O'keefe switched out my Ekos SE to...

Magnum Dynalab Antenna and Ekos/1

I would like to thank everybody on this forum that provided a comment or an opinion, regarding FM antennas (especially the Magnum Dynalab antennas). It was greatly appreciated, and the information played a role in my final decision. And as it turns out, I will be ordering the MD ST-2 antenna. Thomas...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

I'm still deciding which antenna to purchase. Ultimately, it will depend on which one fits into my music room the best, and how much cable will be required. However, this project has recently taken a back seat temporarily. In the mean time, another very important project has taken priority. I'm upgr...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

The antenna is very sensitive to positioning, so it's worth bringing a friend who tries different positions, while you are listening. My SR-100 is hanging in the window behind the curtains. The cable isn't that long, maybe 1 m, but I have a longer, high-quality antenna cable from the Akurate tuner ...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

I just bought the SR-100 myself and got clearly better sound quality from my Linn Akurate tuner. It does require careful positioning though. I'm not impressed by the build quality, but still happy with it nevertheless. Tendaberry, How long is the cable on your SR-100 antenna? And where in your hous...

Did Linn find out a solution of this issue? Or they are yet to admit this.
There hasn't been any solution announced by Linn for resolving this design flaw, as far as I know.

Thank you for the information Thomas, I'll try to check out both antennas before making a decision. I do know that antenna placement and position is very important to good performance. So, I'll have to determine the best possible antenna location in my music room, whether it's the Dynalab ST-2 or SR...

I think I also have some photos that I took to document the mod. Will try to look them out. What approach will you take to re...

Re: Tony Tune-age System

Tony could you not mount a four dipole in your attic. It will be massively better than the T Strip KR Steve I have thought about that Steve, and it's a great idea. However, my attic is very small and full of "blown-in" insulation. So needless to say, I can't put anything in my attic. I'll have to r...

From Magnum Dynalab there's also the SR-100 antenna, which is much easier to install: http://www.magnumdynalab.com/sr-100-fm-antenna/
That antenna looks interesting as well, thanks for the link. I'll want to look at both of them before making a decision.

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Definitely an end of an era and makes me wonder where Linn is going! At least my LP12 sounds as good today as it did yesterday. Same here, not sure exactly where Linn is heading and it may not be good. But like you, my LP12 is still the high point of my audio system. All other components are there ...
