Re: Musical NAS Drives

no this is a rough number - might be that 1.1meter is also sufficient but I remember reading an article from someone who was working in the digital signal transmission industry who got into audio later with his own business. he stated that digital signals create a reflection at the receiver and boun...

Re: Musical NAS Drives

you for sure have tested it but are you really sure to put the Melco and the GS108 at different power rails sounds better?
do you use ethernet cables shorter than 1.2meters?

My message is simple. It is possible. It might be difficult and take some time and effort but it is possible.
I sincerely believe that for the LP part of things.

Re: Defender‘s system

Did you ever consider/listen to the Katalyst Klimax DS? I did never listen to the Katalyst Klimax DS but I would if I would have the chance. But would I buy it? Let me answer this way: I made my decision based on what further option(s) I think it is giving me as well as based on what kind of musica...

Re: Defender‘s system

Thank you for your story Defender. It is really all about getting to the point where every record/cd/file is enjoyable to listen to. It is not about maximising the “sound” quality only. It will lead you into the wilderness. I now have cd/lp replay that makes every cd/lp I own enjoyable and make sen...

Re: Defender‘s system

so one question was left open - why did I ended up changing my system after the Akurate Katalyst upgrade? It still left this small bit of restlessness this small bit of harshness there and didn't really emotionally drew me into the music. I remembered the moments when something really touched me whi...

Defender‘s system

I think its time to introduce you to my system. I grew up with a family where music was always a part of life. My grandpa was a pianist and my father played guitar. My fathers system incorporated a turntable (at that time build into a sideboard/cupboard) a 4 track reel to reel tape recorder and self...

Re: A tracking weight experiment for LP12 owners

here are my findings for Ekos 2 and Arkiv B (not sure if it really is and Arkiv B as Arkiv B should have the serial number on the right side and has Linn Arkiv in silver letters on the cartridge ... mine has it in gold letters and serial number on the right side ... however I was told mine got a ret...

Re: Tonearm for LP12

actually I woudnt really rule out the Ekos 2 arms you can get them used in the 1300Euro-1400Euro range. The Ekos 2 would be in the range of an Akito 3b but I have not heard the Akito 3b beating the Ekos 2 however never had the chance to compare both. Or you wait for a good used Ekos SE - some go for...

for me the bottom clip too - I feel I hear more structure and a more relaxed way of presentation.
Top clip sounds „hurried“.

Re: Entity MC

thank you for all those first reports - however I never managed to be able to „hear through“ run in of a product to make my mind up before its really run in - thats why I think serious comparisons to other products should be done when those (all products involved) have at least 150-200hours ... bett...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

I tried to understand what you are saying - let me rephrase what I understood: you say the initial costs plus running costs of an Adikt over an AT will buy you a better arm. However in which timeframe? Real life example: I have an Ekos 2 now and even if I am taking trade in value into account toward...

Re: If you where to start all over again.

yes there are a lot of things which make a difference for the same catalog number pressings in different countries pressings from different pressing plants in the same country 1st pressings vs later pressings etc. the issue is you usually buy only one and you are either happy or not happy with it bu...

It was joke ... :), I don't mean anything bad ...

Re: If you where to start all over again.

I lived with my digital based system for now 30 years but whenever I heard music from a turntable I felt more emotionally touched. I thought that should be possible with digital too. But in my experience it is not. I know also some on this forum think digital is better than best analog ... Maybe it ...
