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

Firstly, who wants a control rooted to the box? That's insane. Imagine a TV where the main control is on the TV chassis and not on your lap? This isn't much different in that respect. Well I do, actually. I miss the buttons I had on my Akurate DSM now that I have a Klimax Exakt DSM (sorry Klimax Ex...

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

If linn wanted to go after devialet punters I'd have expected better amplification than the level they've bunged in this box. In what sense better? I don't think we can judge until we've heard it, in comparison with products we already know (including, of course Lejonklou amps). Plus that dongle kn...

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

Cloud is the way to go... if by "the cloud" we mean Linn's server (wherever that may be located, perhaps in the cloud proper), then quite a lot of S)/Exakt is already done there. If the server is doing the calculations, then Linn have total control of them, and don't need to worry about different v...

I'm very glad to know that. I guess that a stock of KDS boards will remain for a while.

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

Upgrade DS to Katalyst DS is still possible? Otherwise the value of every DS without Katalyst literally dropped to 0. As I understood it, it remained possible after the DS to DSM upgrades were discontinued. What I don't know is whether it will remain possible (at least for a time) once there are no...

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

the name Selekt was out weeks ago the fact that it is a DAC/Amplifier type of product was out about 2 weeks ago and the view was that there is a lot of space between the Majik and Akurate lines of product for new stuff Thanks for the info; I've been away for part of the time and may have missed som...

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

Really???? Not possible to upgrade a DS to DSM anymore? What the hell Linn??? This was made known on the Linn forum a couple of months ago after dealers were notified. What is (to me) even more concerning is whether any of the older DS models will continue to be upgradeable (as DSs) once the curren...

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

My thanks too to Thomas for starting this informative thread. It's interesting that, while most of what Selekt and the new software offer are very much in line with the direction in which Linn has been moving over the last few years, the new product package as a whole comes as a surprise. Virtually ...

Re: Linn forum down?

My comment was in response to the announcement to discontinue the DS range and only sell DSM's, rather than anything Selekt specific. Many customers are happy, or even prefer, maintaining separate sources and pre-amp. So they do. My point was that Selekt can be seen as part of a trend that Linn hav...

Re: Linn forum down?

That'll cut off the market for those customers who just want a Linn DS as their digital streaming source in an otherwise non-Linn system (or still sticking with their Kontrol). Perhaps it wasn't that big a market anyway, but it looks like it's "our way, or the highway" Not exactly, given that the S...
