I doubt it. If they have already locked v2 out of Konfig, once everything has gone to v2 (Exakt, subs, perhaps shelves) and the concept is proven, it will probably disappear altogether.

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

Hi, I tried the new Web SO with a test case begin of the week. Optimisation took 1-2 minutes and download into Klimax Renew was also no problem -- but "Create from System" within the Konfig on a Mac was not possible. Option was there but greyed out. That's disappointing. Even if it wasn't possible ...

Has anyone on here managed to get the new SO to work? ‘troll Yes, Moomintroll, I successfully completed an optimisation yesterday. You would have seen my floor plan in an earlier post. It took about 1-2 minutes to complete computation and on my modest system fronted by Majik 109’s I felt that the i...

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

Kazoo also shows System in Room. I guess Linn are confused themselves... J. Kazoo shows the Room text not the device name. Which is correct if they continue with the "waiting for room" and Add room dialogues etc. Alexa also uses the Room name - which actually is probably wrong. It should be the dev...

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

I have also noticed from the SO document there's no bass or treble shelves?
I wish I didn't have an Exakt system temporarily. I'd like to see what it does, and if it can be imported into Konfig once it's been applied.

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

Does anyone else think the "System Name" field in the cloud config is wrong? Konfig has "Room" and "Name" in Device settings. The new SO guide says to use a device name rather than a room, and yet it has what's in "Room" in that field. Should it not be what's in "Name"? Also - there's no contextual ...

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

Like many others I'm stuck waiting for the new SO+ for Exakt systems so thought I'd give the new documentation a quick read though. Certainly seems much more comprehensive (challenging?) than the previous versions with the Advanced setup appearing to provide a lot more in the way of fine grained ad...

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

I updated my software last night so I've got the pins. I can't see any use for these within Kazoo, other than perhaps assigning a pin to a specific radio station.

Nope. That will come later, it hasn't even been in Beta. Davaar 64 Pins should be today though.

Re: Linn forum down?

I think the SO change to the cloud is a major reworking, and not connected to the release to market of the Selekt. Pins, however, are. And they are still in Beta. The 25th that release of new software that Thomas was referring to was Davaar 64 and related Kazoo.

On second reading. There was a lot on DSD support, which seems very important in the US market. I wonder if Gilad mentioned that it's only supported on the Katalyst version?

I think it might refer to eliminating the DS products. And personally I did find it a bit confusing (DS, DSM some with, some without Exakt links, some with some without analog output). J.
