Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

First time I heard Kans I just knew they were for me. I spent about 15 years with them and moved house a couple of times and never had the system setup right which lead to me looking for improvement and then cocking it all up. I’d like to hear the Boazu but I think my issue is more fundamental than...

Re: What to match with a Majik DSM3

Pondering on getting Majik DSM 3 and wanted to get opinions on what would be the most musical combination with a Lejonklou 1. Majik dsm3 + baozu 2. Majik dsm3 + tundra 2.5 If you had a opportunity would you rather get a Akurate dsm3 with majik 2100? Definitely Adsm3 then add a tundra later, i have ...

Thank you for the advice! Will give it a try.
The array is bolted from behind, the replacement part is not too expensive if beyond what Fredrik has suggested.

Re: Status in the world of hifi

It took a while for me to stop being surprised that these cheap turntables were still enjoyable musically when I finished setting them up, whereas most under $1000 CD players just aren't - at least to me. Which modern day CD players give a musical reproduction comparable to a well set up Linns DS u...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Thanks for all the feedback. The tragic thing is that the new software seems to have cured the freezing problem. Going to stay with it a few more days to see if it's really gone and then try switching back to 4.67.262, hoping it won't return. You could always try the intermediate version Davaar 4.70...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I do agree that the Nait is more coherent and tuneful. It just doesn't work with Kans long-term. Nowhere near enough bass for me unless you whack up the volume to the max, hence my search. Apart from 12/160, which sounds a bit soft and woolly with Kans, nothing else came close to the 12/110, especi...

How can you identify the Mk 2 version? I assume you don't mean slitted/non-slitted plugs?
It says analogue interconnect 11 on the cable.

Silver analogue interconnect

Anyone tried the mk2 version.
My kdsm tundra and 242 were sounding particularly good last night.
Having owned 8 solos and aktiv 350 in the past, I'm still amazed by the musicality of the 242 tundra system and that's not bad after 50 years of listening to hi fi.

Re: Musical NAS Drives

This is getting very interesting and getting to the root of what is the most musical way of delivering data to the streamer. Many of us seem to be spending large amounts of money on these devices yet could be providing them with a suboptimal signal with which to work with. A 5 year lifespan of the ...

Re: Musical NAS Drives

I know nothing of how Tidal works with Linn streamers but am assuming it is quite straightforward ? Basically you sign up with Tidal and then use a control app (like Kazoo) which has Tidal built in. You enter your login details once into the app and then choose the Tidal "input" when you want to st...

Thanks Charlie1 and Tendaberry. I agree with you both that the new MK is best, followed by the older version of the same mcb. This latest video is with the new MK and same length cable vs the new MK with a shortened mains cable. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f5gj56bqvk0hoa3/AADqng4P7a1Lw7msvxbsIINOa?d...
