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...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

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...

As the akubarik and akudoriks continue in exakt form, consisting of same cabinets and drive units, I cannot really see how keeping them would cost Linn much.

That's a sensible price Anthony - unlike a certain pair of "Near Mint" (?!) Maple Mk1s on Ebay !! Gloss white with black arrays would look (and sound) fabulous in the right setting. Good luck with your sale ;- )
