Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

This is very sad and I am convinced that it is a wrong decision of Linn to take. Sad because a enjoyable and productive community is destroyed. Wrong decision because it slams the door shut to a significant customer base who believe that an open support forum is essential for a technology based comp...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Have tried the new SO this moring and must say it doesn't sound bad. It took a bit too much bass out of the system for my liking, I preferred my manually tweaked SOv1 Konfig profile. Though it is well possible that the bass was more detailed with SOv2. Disclaimer: This is my simple Kitchen system MD...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

To be fair I should say the new SO is now working for me as well (at least it worked eventually, after being stuck in 'updating' stage twice...). I have tried it only with a dummy room / position setting so far, so cannot judge the sonic benefits of the new model yet. But I still find it disappointi...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Of course it's nice that the new SO incorporates more options & a refined model, but I don't like the new cloud-based approach at all. The fact that you cannot see the resulting filters (frequency and gain) will always leave you uncertain as to whether you have really hit the room modes or not. I kn...

Re: Linn forum down?

I've been thinking why Linn have been so drastic with respect to the forum closure. The announcement of Selekt may have played a role, but this does not explain it IMO. They have successfully introduced so many new products without any issues, and the forum has significantly contributed to the excit...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

The calculation is currently done in the DS, not the PC (at least that is my understanding) So if it is done in the Cloud, obvioulsy the results need to be fed into the DS, probably via Konfig, but we will see. I was told one could still use the existing filters. Not sure whether that means the clo...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Yes. I think you’re misinterpreting “Pressure change over time” as being atmospheric pressure. I strongly suspect they’ve done a lot of work on how pressure waves decay over time in the room and reverberation time (if they aren’t both the same thing?) IIRC, this is what Philbo implied that Robert C...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Thanks for all the interesting information!! One thing keeps me scratching my head: Yep, I mainly covered the hardware. Linn also did announce a new and completely revamped Space Optimisation. The new version is said to be a dynamic solution which accounts for pressure changes in a room over time, w...

Re: Linn forum down?

I bet the Katalyst cartridge comes with RCA or XLR outputs. See the picutre of the opened Selekt on https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/linn-selekt-dsm - there are those extra modules visible. It seems you can install Katalyst and the internal amp at the same time.

Re: Linn forum down?

It sits in between. To me it seems like a new (4th) line between Majik and Akurate. It can serve as a Majik DSM replacement (all-in-one box with more efficient class D amp), or Akurate DSM in case you pick the Katalyst DAC without internal amp. Interestingly there seems to be no AEDSM-like configura...

Re: Linn forum down?

Now can we have the Linn forums back please? :-)

TBH the Exakt launch was a much bigger thing than this, and they managed to keep that secret without any forum impact. (At least I had no clue, until the day of release at 14:00 hours exaktly.)

Unless something else is coming...

Re: Linn forum down?

I have not posted a lot on the Linn forums recently (and even less on Lejonklou). Bust since I also hope that Linn are watching this thread, here is my opinion: I have found the Linn forum great as it is, with a lot of technical information, very helpful and nice people, and overall a very good athm...

Re: New active ATCSCM40 has phase correction

Hi, I like my Akurate Exakt and I am convinced that one big improvement is due to the phase corrective function that makes bass and treble better syncronised. I was therefore thrilled to se that ATC:s newest model has this feature too, at least that is my interpretation of "Filters : 4th Order crit...
