Re: Karousel

I also associate timing, flow and coherence of the music as essential elements of musicality. However I am not 100% sure of my tune dem capabilities. I can only tell you what my latest experience is with something which is more musical for me. One is sitting absolutely relaxed when I enjoy music - w...

Re: Karousel

Thanks for all the comments. I haven't actually gone back and listened to all the clip comparisons myself. I did listen to one comparison, the Baden Powell, just to see if it gave me the impression I was expecting. I also haven't listened to these four pieces of music since the last set of clips, e...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

I just wanted to say thank you - there was no intention to change your mind - I know your position and I know there is more involved than „just“ buying the Entity ... it also means living with higher running costs for an MC system. I was just retrospectively impressed how much/what you heard even fr...

Re: Ekos II blow test

Thank you Thomas - that gives me reassurance - the last price I heard in Europe for refurbishing an Ekos Arm was at around 400,- Euro. I think thats a fair price and thats what I am going to do as budget for an Ekos SE is not available. I wouldnt want to sell the Ekos unrefurbished so sending it hom...

Ekos II blow and swing test

As my LP12 was bought used I wanted to check my Ekos II as best as I can if it has wear issues. What I did is I set it up balanced with no tracking force. Than I cut some post it notes into small squares of about 5x5 millimeters which I placed one by one on top of the cartridge - after I placed the ...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

just to back up Charlie a little bit I have also heard if tracking force is too low the needle bounces between left and right groove wall like a car between the crash barrier and that can damage the records ... however as long as tracking is fine lowest forces should make the least wear. @Ron your d...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

There should be some slippage once you reach the torque setting. This should happen before it clicks over. The slippage on mine is probably only 1/8 of a turn but it's usually enough. However, it gets harder to find (without clicking over) as the torque setting increases in value. Welcome Mr Pig! w...

Re: Entity MC

thank you Charlie I still shake my head in not understanding how Fredrik put so much musicality in such a tiny device. It is against all what I thought to know about interference of magnetic fields with the most precious and sensitive signals. So would I buy it again? Sure to 200% Would I recommend ...

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

with those torques with the arm fitted do you just let the tool release or do you turn until it clicks? I am little afraid that the click is somehow sending a „shockwave“ to the arm bearings

Re: Entity MC

not sure if the question was intended for me but since I use an ArkivB I am using the 120Ohm setting and never tried something else as Fredrik stated thats the optimal setting for the Arkiv.

Re: Entity MC

o.k. I would like to give you my first opinion about the Entity here is the conclusion for all who dont want to read all the following lines: its wonderfull, special, musical - if the LP12 and the rest of your electronic is the orchestra the Entity is the conductor - you should hear it! well that wa...

Re: Entity MC

hi Fredrik - we „love“ you for having what you call obsessive tendencies. That makes it easy to buy your products even if some dont have a chance to get a demo before buying. I am now at around 55 hours play time with the Entity and will write what I think later today when I have more time.

Re: Entity MC

that is probably mu metal foil (magnetic field shield foil) to shield the magnetic field of the transformer even more from entering the delicate circuits (I say even more as the transformer seems to be already in a magnetic shield can)
thats good stuff ;)

It seems the long time Linn dealers live the promise: „Der Karousel Upgrade-Kit besteht aus dem neuen Lager, einen neuen Innenteller und einem kompletten Satz Subchassis-Federn. Der Einbau, Justage und Ölwechsel sind inclusive.“

Tendaberry - how about clips from your new LP12? If my information is right it arrived today? ;)
BTW what do you think about the Technics 1200 or even the Technics SP-10 R?

Re: Karousel

so your dealer has the opinion he is working for free when he gets 975Euro for a bearing. The Cirkus bearing was 550Euro and even that included fitting it to your turntable.
