Re: A little Linn news

Possibly there are some less complex passives on the way from Linn and they're just protecting last stocks of 3K arrays for Exakt integrated buyers? Selekt DSM allows for 2-way and 3-way passives to be driven Exakt actively. That currently means Majik 109, some older KEF Reference, one PMC, a Manger...

Re: Stacking Tundras

There's a guy in Vancouver who runs Tundras on the treble and mid for his Keltiks, and I think Bryston on the bass. He used to post quite frequently on the Linn forum but I haven't seen posts from him for quite some time and his user name escapes me just now!

Re: M140 to Akudorik upgrade advise

Whilst Klimax Exaktbox/1 is very impressive, I don't think it adds much, if anything, musically, over an Akurate Exaktbox6/1. Comparison with Akurate Exaktbox10/1 will be a slightly larger difference but not huge. If it were my system I'd consider 4x stereo Tundras (in comparison to alternatives of ...

Re: M140 to Akudorik upgrade advise

The advice about Exaktbox Katalyst and source first is good. But, if you like the Akudoriks and the price is very good, don't hesitate to buy them with the future upgrade of the Exaktbox in mind. Sometimes following source first is not a practical solution if the right opportunity comes up to get th...

Re: Lingo 1 recap result

Is this thread heading towards "less detail is more musical"? I think that's over correlation, and can't really understand why the 2 would be necessarily mutually exclusive. I have, of course, experienced highly detailed systems that were very unmusical (they tend to be quite expensive systems) and ...

Re: Sunbeam's Rig

A few weeks back I finally finished the 20 month process of transitioning from K600 to Naim SuperLumina. Its expensive stuff so it took a while to build up the cash and find used or ex-dem examples. I really like what it does in my system - its very grown up, and helps the joined togetherness of the...

The Grahams are definitely an interesting addition to the range and I look forward to hearing them.

Worth also considering the Totem Sky Tower if you want a really small floorstander.

Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

They haven't said as much, but with the re-introduction of the Klimax DS and Akurate DS in Katalyst versions, are Linn recognising that a 'source first' company ought to produce their best digital sources in a form that can live happily in non-Linn systems? Of course, its good to see these products...

Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

My thoughts are that they are shifting their business towards what they see as a future market since all of us old school enthusiasts are slowly kicking the bucket. It's a brave new world; sleek looks, wireless, calibrated to the room, etc. and nothing like as enjoyable to listen to but their new c...

Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

As part of system hierarchy, Linn used to talk of preserving the signal as it travels through the system (or words to that effect), now they seem to advocate deliberate manipulation of the signal... Well, that's a matter of interpretation. Manipulation sounds like a bad thing but remember that unin...

If selling your existing amps allows you enough funds for Solos/D, choosing a Twin would be a shame :)

Re: Shipping used Lejonklou Equipment in UK

Try interparcel.com, they'll give you plenty of choices.

However, size is not really the issue, getting adequate insurance is usually the problem. I find UPS will provide adequate insurance, at a fairly steep price.
