Re: Karousel

there are more and more Ekos SE/1 comming up on the used market and sellers are mainly dealers which sell it as used from demo LP12s so I expect there is a reason behind it ... maybe a new arm comming?

but it can be also more easy to sell the demo LP12 just with an Akito 3b ... lets see ...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

is this the Peder from the Naim Forum who wrote about the Cisco switches? Welcome! And enjoy a wealth of experience here too.
I dont think the Karousel will change anything related to the Radikal issue as it will not change the space which is simply not there.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

0.6 +4 still for me but I think you need to try half steps around it - for me the music before in the comparison 0.6 +4 vs. 0.6 +5 gave me more information to decide which is better.
If we settle for something around 0.6 +4,5 or 0.6 +3,5 we than compare it to 0.6 +5.5 just to be sure

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

P10 has be returned. Musically enjoyable and great sound but not as coherent and enjoyable as either LP12. It did highlight that the 110 sounds too speeded up much of the time, but I've come up with two nicely balanced systems with the kit I've got: 1.) Radikal LP12 > 32.5/SNAPS/250 > Briks: https:...

It would be great to hear your old 0.6+4 clip versus 0.6+4 with new power cables..... Yeah, I would be interested to hear 0,6 + 4 with the new power cords against 0,6 + 5 Oops! I missed a step.

Re: Karousel

thank you for clarification my thought was the
„Sondek Deck only“ sells for 2120,- and the Krystal for 1598,- which lift me over the 3570,- for the promotion ... if the Deck only is eligible for the promotion

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Skeets does make a difference but not in a clearly better direction. Something is not fully settled with skeets. I would choose no skeets. It works better and I enjoy it. :-) This is the same outcome like last time - it seems my loudspeakers prefer to not stand on spikes/skeets. However I will leav...

I agree with Thomas about the Rega thats why I made the statement that I wonder why it was harder for me to follow the voice on the Rega - Rega comes in third.

interesting comparison even though many things are different from setup to setup but I was surprised of how hard it was for me to follow the voice on the Rega with the first 3 clips (can’t get there from here)

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I might be thrown out of the forum for this but what I have experienced when I am close to the optimum setting I put on a recording with a nice kickdrum. The kickdrum either sounds lazy and unengaged or bloated ... and just right fast and dry when you hit the spot
