Re: Linn Lingo 4 ground problem and fix

As a Lingo 4 owner I was a bit surprised when I read this Thread as I was unaware of any ground problem. I noted that this presents itself as a "...faint hum in the speakers" and a " ... loss of musicality" . I can't say that I have experienced either but of course some more detailed listening will ...

Re: EVENTS

Marco - looks like you have some fabulous kit to demonstrate.

Hope you and Fredrik have a great show!

Be interested to get feedback on the new SINGularity MC phono stage in particular.

Re: Katan/Ninka/Espek Tweeter replacement

Although the OW92 fits and is is a popular option, Linn (i.e. Philbo) has not produced Exakt filters (SO+ V1) for these as they have for the 038/2 tweeters.

Re: Installing Aktive cards into 5125

It seems to be quite common that the cards come with two shorter cables but as you know you also need a longer one for the AV5125.

The part number is CONN226/1/AVP and last time I inquired the price was around £9.00 plus postage.

I may have a spare "long cable" if you are interested?

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

More correctly (perhaps), SO adapts the way the system is playing the music. And the system includes the room. What I find slightly bemusing here, is that there is a view that SO is universally bad. SO can be bad, because its not perfect. Just like every other component in the chain between perform...

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

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. Noted - just as long as ". .. you don’t have to use it for anything...

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

Thanks Dobie - that's very reassuring.

I was confused by the sentence "When dragging corners and walls they will snap to the current grid size; adjacent walls will also prefer to snap to a 90 degree angle."

Looking forward to the new SO+ for Exakt systems ... but when?

Like many others I'm stuck waiting for the new SO+ for Exakt systems so thought I'd give the new documentation a quick read though. Certainly seems much more comprehensive (challenging?) than the previous versions with the Advanced setup appearing to provide a lot more in the way of fine grained adj...

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

Thanks ThomasOK - very informative. A couple of additional questions: - 1.

Power supply - one of the What Hi-Fi pages has a picture of a Selekt with the cover off. Wh...

Selekt DSM w/ integrated amp and Katalyst £6,750

Unlikely to be Akurate-level technology at that price point although I am intrigued about the "bridged Class-D power amplifier"?

Any information about the Selekt DSM power supply?
