Thank you for your handy tips about cleaning and handling the KNEKTS. I´ll try your mechanical cleaning method. I disagree with your opinion that cleaning fluids generally lead to a degraded sound. I often used Deoxit to clean contacts and never noticed a degradation of sound. Others used it too and...

I'm wondering about the result of changing the connectors. The person who soldered the connectors is very expierienced especially in Linn products. One fact is that I cleaned the connectors before soldering with Deoxit also at the soldering areas. Could this be an explanation?

Now I have changed the bananas to Knekt. The connectors are new, the k 600 is used. The result at the moment is not satisfying. The soudstage is flat and two-dimensional. Instruments and voices have no body. Timing is not right. All in all: No fun. Will this change after a time? Can a cable sound so...

I once tried gold plated spades with K400/600 feeding A242s. This was a complete desaster and I quickly changed back to Knekts. I had no idea that such a tiny piece can make such a difference. Thanks for your answer. I didn`t pay attention to this detail until a Linn-enthusiast soldered in a new pa...

Hi,
does anybody know if these knekt bananas are actually available and where to buy? With my kaber I use tri- wired audioquest midnight with spades. I have some older Linn bananas left. Will they sound better than the actual spades?

Thank you Thomas for your explanation. My thoughts were that in the newer crossover should work better parts than in the older one because of it`s later production date. I thought there could be a progress in the quality of the parts resulting in better sound.

Thank you anthony, I´ve found these numbers on the newer crossover. I´ll compare it to the other one. Soldering: I will not solder by myself. I´ve a person who is an expert on Linn who will do it for me. But he was not convinced that it would be an improvement. Why do you think it might be worthwhil...

Linn Kaber - changing crossover?

Hi,
I own a pair of Kabers serial 8897. I´ve bought recently a pair of Kaber crossovers serial 14997/98. Does it make sense to change them? Will me Kaber sound better with the newer crossovers because between the production date of the two are ten years?
Thanks for your answers.

In a short time I have found a pair of tweeters 15/3 to update my kabers. I am very happy about this because I have been looking for them quite a long time. Thanks to WIJI for selling them to me.

I did not say that the audio technica brush is useless. But when you try this green stuff you will realize that it really works better. Keep in mind that the audio technica brush is not availible anymore. You can try it yourselve for little money and that is the sense behind this bargain thread.

After I read the thread I ordered Bergeon Rodico from ebay. I have cleaned the stylus for 20 years with the audio technica brush. I was astound how much dirt was on this piece of Bergeon after I used it to clean the stylus. The sound was much clearer after that. This is a good recommendation.

thank you for your post. Yes, there was a private message. But I had no email. Perhaps I have to change my email adress to make it work.Best regards
