Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

More musically together, and better balanced with. Loses something (a lot) without, and changes the presentation to more vocal fwd almost to the point of shouty for me. I can understand Charlie liking it for a more raw & immediate connection to the vocalist; it just loses too much overall for me th...

Re: Entry Level Lejonklou MC

Hi everyone! Hope you had a joyous Midsommar with lots of dancing around poles. I did! Some answers: Slipsik sized ( and priced ?) unit would tempt Adikt users like me who might wish to dabble with Krystal. OK! Price wise, I think it will end up at Slipsik+50%. The main board for the MC version cos...

Re: SINGularity

Yes - all of which involve staying clear of Urika and avoiding both the potential of the Trampolin foot touching the Radikal motor and now the issue of it adversely affecting the power supply to the Turntable.

Good time to be developing MC phonostages for LP 12s.

Re: Entry Level Lejonklou MC

I think with the increasing awareness of the Radkikal /Trampolin issue and the reluctance of some Linn dealers to accept / fix it; a Lejonklou alternative(s) to Urika would be great. I don't follow you on this one. How does a Urika competitor solve the issue of the Trampolin foot touching the Radik...

Re: Entry Level Lejonklou MC

Sounds like we would like Two new MC stages: 1 Slipsik sized unit which would be great value for money and an entry level for Krystal level cartridge 2 Aluminium Singularity which would be more musical than Urika 1 but hopefully not too much more expensive. I think with the increasing awareness of t...

Re: Slipsik 7

Obsessive Compulsive, along with Genius would perhaps best describe the qualities needed to produce some of the brilliant equipment coming from Lejonklou HQ. Slipsik 7 may be the latest and most favourably reviewed at the moment, but I think the Sagatuns, Tundras and Boazu have been received with eq...

Re: Slipsik 7

Finally got access to my LP12 and replaced Slipsik 6.1 with version 7, now with a few hours of burn in with the RP3. Wow - it took all of 3 seconds of London Grammars 'Hey Now' to realise that this a huge upgrade over an already fantastic phonostage. Further listening confirmed that everything is ju...

6 days on and I can confirm that my Rega Planar 3 has been utterly transformed by Slipsik 7 and with Boazu and Komponent 110s makes for a great Bedroom system. As others have pointed out the music has been getting better the more I use the Slipsik. I compared the same album on digital with the sneak...

Re: Slipsik 7

Slipsik 7 arrived today and as my Main music room is unavailable I decided to hook it up to my 34 year old Rega Planar 3, Boazu and Komponent 110s.

Wow - what a difference.

The Gaio 1 already sounded good but this is like a major source upgrade.

Can’t wait to try it with the LP12.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I think I hit bulls eye with my speaker setup. Previous: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o80bpx67okg90cb/Video%2003-05-2019%2011.35.24.mov?dl=0 Now: https://www.dropbox.com/s/f5oq6pfzzifi3gg/Video%2005-05-2019%2020.34.35.mov?dl=0 Or am I only dreaming? Previous is better. I agree-previous is much better.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I agree - it’s the timing I’m sure which is all over the place and consequently messes up the music.

Without ‘good’ timing - I don’t even bother listening to the ‘sounds’ - I just switch off, and usually within a few seconds.

Surprising that speaker positioning can affect this quite so much.

Re: SINGularity

Now that SINGularity 003 and 004 have come home with me I thought I'd post a clip of the system at home. The system isn't even warmed up having only been played for one side before I made this clip, still it is sounding quite good in my estimation. https://www.dropbox.com/s/e43yzggrvtapwoy/Video%20...

Re: How good are phono stages in vintage Linn preamps?

Akkurate Kontrol / 1 has a really good MM phonostage which I used for some time.

The preamp itself is excellent ( in a different league from my previous Kolektor ) and probably good value now.
