Re: The New Lejonklou Streamer

For me the LP12 is my main sours. I use Tidal to find new music and "lazy listening", if I like it I buy the LP Some of my music I only have ripped from CD to NAS and it´s not available on Tidal/spotify. That said I would not buy a streamer that don´t support Tidal or some other HQ-streaming service...

Re: Tundra 2.2 vs Linn C4200/D and KCT/D

Here's the more realistic volume level and KK set to 62.5 and iPad connected in the non-KK clip. The music seems a bit stiff without the KK so more flowing with it: EM no KK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nvf50h9ip5ktped/EM_NoKK.MOV?dl=0 EM with KK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m9bmuqayw1x1vs4/EM_WithKK.M...

Re: Lejonklou with other speakers besides Linn and JBL

When I was in the market for new speakers it was between T1 and Akudorik. Ended up with Akudorik much due to the external filters that the T1 have, just could not fit the filter box in a WAF safe place ;) The Akudoriks handle our room a little better then the T1, but the T1 was the more musical spea...

Re: Sagatun / Tundra review in Hi-Fi+

Very cool that the review is now on their website. And thank you maffe! In the manual it says "We recommend it to be switched off when not in use for a longer period of time".

Re: Sagatun / Tundra review in Hi-Fi+

Congrats on a good review!
One thing that pussels me is the recommendation in the review to turn the Tundras off when not using them?
Only time my monos been off was when I had them upgraded to "Tarandus"

Re: Lejonklou at RMAF 2017 (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest)

Why not the Tundra / Sagatun case? I think that would be better. Only if it sounds better in my opinion. I have serious space issues in my cabinet - no space even for a Radikal at the moment. Last thing I need is another full size case- unless it sounds better. Same thing here! Still dreaming of a ...

Re: Optimal House Wiring

I had all electrics in our apartment rewired some time ago. Just for fun I mentioned to the electrician that a separate feed with a porcelain fuse that was not connected to the ground fault circuit interrupter most likely would improve the music experience. He found that fun and did just that for me...
