Re: DS firmware - what is the lastest on the most musical one?

I’ve stuck with 67.262. Tried some of the later releases but fairly quickly go back. I tend to download all releases, beta and production, so I have them in case somebody says one I haven’t tried is good. But mostly I just don’t try them as there have been no new features that I must have. Problem w...

Re: What the...

There is speculation on the Linn section of Wigwam that the lower bass speaker has been added after manufacture.
If you zoom in and look at the finish of the cabinet around the speakers, the lower bass speaker looks different and not as good as the other speakers.

What about the 7 figure speakers?
But that only gets you one channel at 2009 prices. (And it is/was made locally)

Re: DS firmware - what is the lastest on the most musical one?

You can find the correct FW file by looking at the board type for your DS/DSM in Konfig. There is a 3 digit number in the middle of this string which matches the FW file. I can only assume Linn did this as they changed or upgraded boards without changing the model designation. PS: doing auto update ...

Re: Streaming flac quality internet radio via KRDS

The last I saw on their website (Sep 2018) was: We don't currently have a way to provide a stream URL for FLAC. We're investigating possibilities, but our FLAC implementation requires software assistance at the receive end. I would like to get a FLAC URL as well but looks like its not going to be an...

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.

Re: Linn forum down?

It was through the forum that I heard about upgrades - Dynamik, Katalyst - and feedback from early adopters which persuaded me to either go ahead unheard or seek out a dealer who had Klimax kit on demo. And of course most of the support I received was from the forum rather than a dealer. So are Linn...

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

What I have found is as follows. Let's say I have two Konfig configurations: Konfig 1 - a configuration never imported to the cloud Konfig 2 - a configuration that has been imported to the cloud The steps I followed were: 1) Use Konfig to load and apply Konfig 1. Play music; 2) Use the cloud to app...

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

Similar initial experience here (MDSM + M140s placed asymmetrically in an irregular room). Based on a very quick try-out, the Optimisation Preference slider seems to be quite powerful. A modest slide to the right put quite a lot of bass back in for me. I suspect all it is doing is increasing gain o...

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

@John R B: the Save option in SO is related only to the current Konfig profile it is showing. It seems SO v2 is entirely invisible to Konfig. I don't know how they managed it, but apparently it somehow greys out the "Create from system" option when the system has a v2 optimisation applied. That may...

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

I assume you can switch back to SO in Konfig, using your old filters (so no one way street for now, at least as long as a new Konfig version stops this)? Yes you can load a SO V1 profile using Konfig. You can also load the current profile to the cloud using the web interface. So I loaded my SO V1 p...

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

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. So I could have a Radio Paradise pin, instead of having to go to all the trouble of selecting the Radio input AND THEN having to select ...
