Re: Snatex's System

Hi Snatex, Thanks for the pictures, details and evolution of your system. Looks like Emotiva and Kinos have been replace by AK/0 too? I also have a PS Audio PowerPlant - which components do you plug into this device? I found it works well with my sources (Melco, AEDSM and Exaktboxes) but not on the ...

Re: Linn Klimax DSM Organik, impressions

Different speaker designs have this problem(*) to a different degree. Some try to combat it by physically shifting the elements (see for example PMC's designs that "lean backwards"), but from what I've read the problem is fundamentally unavoidable in an analog design. This is not why speaker design...

Re: Linn Klimax DSM Organik, impressions

Hearing acoustical instruments perform live incorporates the same effect. Higher frequencies travels faster. In fact, a good symphony orchestra compensates this effect to a certain degree by having the double basses being slightly "pushy" in there playing. The same in a jazz quartet, with the bass ...

Re: Linn Klimax DSM Organik, impressions

We're all agreed on here that source is most important. So why is it that 90%, for the sake of argument, has been captured at the source in the last 20 years in 24/96 or 24/192 is considered more musical when it has been through many processes to become 16/44.1 or a wiggle pressed into a disc?

Re: Linn Klimax DSM Organik, impressions

BTW can we better understand if the clocking effect of digital capture (the "grid" as you phrase it) actually affects the timing of the music? It cuts the waves into slices then rebuilds them in the same order. 44,100 times a second (or more). With a piece of music at 120bpm as an example (2 beats ...

Re: Linn Klimax DSM Organik, impressions

... So, what happens with “noise” that is an essential part of music’s acoustical landscape? Is it a risk that it is interpreted as jitter or unwanted noise when transferred to ones and zeros, by filters in the pressing, in the streaming services or by our digital devices?

Re: Linn Launch Event

Another new Klimax DSM review: https://www.grammo.co.uk/klimaxreview I find it a bit unnerving that one could easily replace “KDSM(2021)” with “Karousel” in the review. The “improvements” and challenges read remarkably similar! I genuinely hope this isn’t true. Unnerving? Or comforting that the mus...

3) Streaming services are, with 1 and 2 above applied, in general more musical than listening to the same music stored on a NAS, even when the files on the NAS are higher in resolution than what the streaming services offer. We should all try and find out how these services are delivering this, so ...

Re: Linn LK140 Power Switch

Go really careful if you're going to solder to the switch - its body plastic melts with very little heat. Perhaps solder female spades on to the wires rather than soldering direct.

Re: Amp and other upgrade options...

Hi snatex, just be aware that the order in which you install the cards makes a difference. I once felt that Ninkas with passive 6100 was more cohesive than aktiv. But advise followed on this site lead me to re-install the cards in a different order and then aktiv was always as good or better. Also,...

Nothing before the pre-amp would change its capabilities nor what is is adding or taking away from the music. What may change is your ability to hear what that component is doing - in theory a better pre-amp will expose its positives and negatives. This is a fundamental part of why source first is i...
