Re: Cobra Dave’s system

..... Also, when you say latest Ittok's, are you counting the LVIII/2 that was built in Scotland? I suspect that one could be better than all Akito's. This is many years ago (-93 or so?) I had an Ittok LVII and nearly bought a new LVIII/2. In fact I would have if a used Ekos1 didn’t have turned up....

Re: Linking M6100 Amplifier

Hello, Thanks for your reply. Are you saying that I can't use the M6100 passively? My plan was to use the six channels in the M6100 passively until sometime in the new year when I would either get suitable Aktiv cards, or maybe even look to go Exakt.

Re: Dylan - Nobel prize 2016 !

Now it's more than two weeks and still not a word from Dylan. All the cultural writers and personalities in Sweden rants about it. I believe the prize is 8 MSEK. He turns that down and keep on touring? This is very interesting.

Surely, there is now a market for "lightning to 3.5mm adapter" of better quality than what Apple provides. If you have phones that you like I would stick to that and wait and see what comes up.

Re: What Ethernet cable is recommended?

I bought 3m cat6 microconnect from Dustin 2-3 years ago. Turned out that they were no better than the cat6 I was using. Tried Supra cat7 and they are the best I have. It's frustrating, you don't know what's good until you tried.

+1 thanks for the tip. I am a bit reluctant to change the screws myself though as I quite recently had Kore installed and everything is newly setup by the dealer. Right, I can visit him again. We'll see.

Re: My new system

JSL's screws looks like the same as on my Klyde. I use the screws that came with it (bought s/h quite recently). I also have a 20yo Klyde in a drawer, the screws in that box are the very same length. Conclusion: this is the length that Linn supplied with the cartridge.

Re: In Praise of the Pre-amp (Kinos with Unidisk SC)

Glad to be of help, David. Yes, 2.1s and 1.1s can be found at tempting prices but they are cheap for a reason. Unidisks are about the most complex products ever from Linn, unreliable according to reputation and repair is expensive.

Re: Slipsik 6

I've been to a Kore demo. Two Majik decks, one with Kore and the other with the latest Lingo. The Kore deck was clearly better. For me it's a nobrainer that you get Kore before a better phonostage. That Slipsik 6 is better than 5.1 and Gaio is of course also a nobrainer, it wouldn't be released if i...

no doubt a DS/2 with 35 is significantly better than a DS/1 with 4.1.10 Are you sure? I'd like to hear just that comparison but have not yet had the opportunity. There certainly are differences between FW versions but I heard nothing in the magnitude of the differences from /0 to /1 or (at least as...
