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

You are joking, right?

Listen to the tune that the piano is playing...

On the Naim, it’s not a tune. That’s just through my iPad speakers.

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Now here's a turnup for the book. Along with no doubt many others on their mailing list, I've just had an email from Simon Chisholm at Linn announcing that, following the demise of the main Linn forum, a Development forum will shortly be opened for the use of beta testers. I shall certainly be join...

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

I suppose it depends on the Ts &Cs that were signed up to? Personally, I’m not bothered, just interested in getting the good parts of the old forum back online. This is a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned. Admittedly, it could all have been handled much better, but, heck, we are wh...

I've never had a satisfactory answer to the question whether 'room modes' (which I understand as referring to distortions caused by the interaction of the music source with the room in which it is played) are dependent on volume level. My experience has been that SO settings that may improve the so...

Is it my stupidity, but I cannot find anywhere in the new scheme of things to put in the height of the speaker stands, i.e distance from bottom of speaker to the floor. Anyone found this?

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

Should we start a new thread purely to discuss the new SO, which appears to be called V2, as none of us here appear interested in Selekt?

I suppose the big question is “when is the Exakt version coming?” Will it be weeks or months?

Hi Donald, 1. I don’t know the answer, but what’s wrong with having to use Kazoo to assign a new system? It’s only one more app to have installed, you don’t have to use it for anything else and, I assume, you won’t add new systems very often. 2. My understanding of the new SO is that it now allows y...

I updated my software last night so I've got the pins. I can't see any use for these within Kazoo, other than perhaps assigning a pin to a specific radio station.

Re: New Linn Forum

I’d be quite happy if they dropped the Third Party section, there are other forums more suited. I don’t think it does Linn any favours and, in my opinion, attracts too many of the “my only piece of Linn is a pre-cirkus LP12 with no baseboard and I don’t understand Tunedem” variety.

It looks very comprehensive, looking forward to the Exakt version. I imagine it will reduce Paulsurround’s air miles somewhat.
