Re: Musical NAS Drives

EMI is a very general term. Exactly where is this EMI and how does it affect the output of the DAC?

Re: Musical NAS Drives

Has anyone a remotely scientific explanation for why NAS drives / routers etc can sound different? I’m not disputing people hear differences, and I’m very pleased with my EtherRegen, but how can they make a difference?

Re: Musical NAS Drives

You don’t need a Zen Mini 3 to try Tidal!

Just set it up in Kazoo and save your money.

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: Ethernet regenerator

Wow indeed. It was only three pages in when I made my initial post. As a scientist, I have sympathy with the goal of being able to measure differences that matched user's findings. However, one of the ways science progresses is that observations are made that don't match existing theories and a way ...

Re: Ethernet regenerator

Interesting concept, and I'd love to lend one from my trusted dealer to audition it in my system. Does anyone here have an idea, how this thingy differs drom Melco's NAS products, who also promise to "cleanse" the Ethernet signal for the DSM? There has been a lot of praise of Melco around. But when...

Thank you for sharing your impressions.
With this quality it would make sense to start a thread about.
Do you post on AS forum as well?
Thanks

Moderators - perhaps this should come out into a new thread?

I see Melco have released a Network Switch for £2k! Anyone tried this?
Unlike the EtherRegen, the technology in it doesn't seem to be anything different though.

Sorry, no. After my initial listening comparisons, I've removed the old switch completely (a Netgear GS108 by the way), so comparisons are no longer straightforward.

Ethernet regenerator

OK, so I’ve had an EtherRegen since Tuesday. It is superb and still improving so there is some burn in. For me, it does the same thing as Fredrik’s amps, making the music easier to understand and follow what the musicians are doing and how they are interacting with each other. Taking it out, the mus...

I’ve voted for two sources into Monos but wanted to add that the second is using Unity gain which is very important for me.

Re: Small top quality floorstanders

I have now (I hope) completedthe upgrading of the front end and middle components in the shape of KRDSM-E and Tundra Solos. I am using M140 speakers with upgraded stands and am in no hurry to replace them, but I do like to keep my eye out for a second hand bargain. But what? Obviously I would only ...

Re: Linn Klimax Twin or Solos

Just my opinion it I’m sure other members can chime in with their experience of Lejonklou amps on 242? A Tundra Stereo or Monos has/have no problem driving 242s and sound absolutely superb. Even the original Tundra Monos bettered my Dynamiked Klimax Twin, and they have been improved very significan...

Re: Amazon music goes HD

... and hopefully access will be integrated into apps like LInn Kazoo and Lumin.
It looks interesting, but I can't see a simple way to get the full quality into a Linn DS for example.

Re: Is aktiv operation best in all respects (same quality amp)?

As you're on the Lejonklou forum, it would be remiss of me not to suggest that you first listen to a Lejonklou Tundra Stereo single wired passive in place of your bi-wired Linn amps. I suspect it would be significantly more musical. I'm not joking!

In excellent condition with original box and packaging. A superb upgrade if you're using the original two piece stands. Looking for £400 ono (current price £860) These are heavy, (17kg) so I prefer collection only (from Ashford, Middlesex or Shaftesbury, Dorset) or could deliver / meet part way with...
