Re: Remembering Julian Vereker

Met him once at CES in the mid 80's. Just a genius. I still enjoy an Olive Naim system as my office setup.

Re: How to repair failing Dynamiks

Hi,

ESR meters are relatively cheap and can measure ESR without removing caps from the board.

Re: Kazoo Server acting up

Hi, Yes, Linn did reply and recommended something I'd already tried. Anyway, tried it again and no luck. Running latest version of QTS 4.3 software and latest Mono version. Linn says Mono is already embedded on the QNAP package so I ended up removing Mono but the problem persisted. I ended up instal...

Re: Linn AV5125 High Frequency Noise

Hi,

It's the SMPS power supply and it is normal. Both my 2250 and AV5125 amps make the same whining noise.

Re: Katan/Ninka/Espek Tweeter replacement

Now wondering if there are any Scanspeaks which could also be used, and are more readily available here in the U.S. Will do some research during holidays. Edit: Well, it seems the same Scanspeak tweeter I ordered for my Naim SBL refurbishing project meets the 92mm requirement, and it's cheaper than ...

Although the OW92 fits and is is a popular option, Linn (i.e. Philbo) has not produced Exakt filters (SO+ V1) for these as they have for the 038/2 tweeters.
Should not be that difficult for Philbo to do so.

They're 94mm in diameter so some work would need to be done to the cab or the tweeter to make them fit. The originals are 92mm.
Hmmm, nice catch!!!

Re: Katan/Ninka/Espek Tweeter replacement

Hi Ozzzy189,

Yes, I've seen references to the HiQphon tweeters but they seem to change the characteristic sound signature. Since the SEAS tweeters are relatively cheap ($34.00 USD ea.) I'm inclined to try these in my AV5140s to replace the original Linn ceramic ones and see how they sound.

Katan/Ninka/Espek Tweeter replacement

Hi, While researching the woofer suggested in the 'Majik 109 Modification' thread I digged in deeper into the SEAS available tweeters and found one that may be an exact match, sans the three protecting bars, for replacing Katan/Ninka/Espek damaged tweeters which are no longer available from Linn.

Re: Cartridge rebuild

Beck,

I recommend a full rebuild. It will come back as good as new or better, not a cantilever surgery work. After 20+ years cartridge suspension dries out which directly affects its compliance. A cantilever/stylus replacement may not address that.

Re: Cartridge rebuild

Hi Tokenbrit, Never found a Goldring rebuilder in the US. In fact a VERY trusted source told me last Thursday that Roy Hall is Goldring's rep in the US and it seems he sends them to the UK for rebuild. BTW, I requested technical information about the rebuild and David Giffin from Armour Goldring con...

Re: Cartridge rebuild

Hi Beck, I don't think they do retips only (not sure). The full rebuild cost is 300GBP + VAT + Shipping. If out of the UK there is no VAT but there may be import duties. In my case I was charged import duties by the UK even thought the cartridge was to be rebuilt and returned to the US. I ended up s...
