Re: Recommended tool for 242 3 k array torque settings

Hi Gussy, You’re right, there are ‘nuts’ which are screwed into the rear of the front baffle, but the bond between the nut and baffle will break down once its ability to resist turning is exceeded. Unfortunately, I know from experience that this can be as low as 1.5Nm, hence the suggestion to not e...

Re: Recommended tool for 242 3 k array torque settings

Hi Spannko, How are you getting on at 0.55Nm? I’ve got a pair of Akudoriks and am following this thread with great interest! Unless, that is, you break the bond between the threaded insert and the cabinet... Thanks Spannko, I also had a hi-fi session this afternoon - 0.55 didn’t last 5 mins, I went...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Personally, I think Linn have done the right thing by closing the forum. It’s really important that everything they’re associated with reflects their core values and its been the case for far too long that an ethos was being promoted on the forum which was clearly at odds with Linns. There were oth...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

I see the Wam now has a Linn owners club and several Linn threads appearing. I wonders if it’s time to stop Linn specific threads on here unless Frederik is OK with them continuing. He has been very generous in providing us with a temporary home and I thank him. I was on this forum and will stay on...

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

In SO V2 is it possible to set all nodes to 0db (as in V1)? Thanks! The only time you'd want to do that is with Exakt/SO+. Non-Exakt the effect will be the same as turning SO off. So the question will become relevant when SO+ v2.0 arrives! Aha! Thanks for that Timster. I’m using SO+ switched on but...

Re: KATALYST OR NOT

I upgraded my Akudoriks last year - enormous improvement in sound - like having the warmth of analogue combined with the accuracy of digital.

No, quite the opposite, SO adapts the music to the room.

Well, for those of us not fortunate enough to have acoustically perfect living rooms, I would maintain that SO is a pretty useful tool.

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

If the room the musicians are playing in has poor acoustics (and I’ve heard a few) then telling them to play differently mightn’t be such a bad idea....

On every system I've come across, and there's been a few, it's sounded more musical when SO was turned off. +1 SO is like telling the musicians playing in a room to play differently.

Thank you all for contributing with information, thank you especially ThomasOK and thank you for having a home here while Linn has thrown us out. Linn gets more and more suspect to me.

Re: New Linn Forum

A ‘troubleshooting’ section and a ‘development’ section would be more than enough for me.

There’s a wealth of information in LinnDocs which is still online.

Re: Linn forum down?

Who knows what Linn is trying to do? Their forum was very useful for Newby support.

I found the Linn forum very useful when I started streaming back in 2010 because I had no idea what to do. But now the system works well and I find myself checking out the forum less and less often.
