Re: rowlandhills's System

I too replaced my 2200/D with a Tundra (2). Unbelievable improvement. It's a great bit of kit. My next upgrade is likely to be an upgrade from 1.2 to 2.0 on my Tundra, but I want to hear it first in my system, and I want to get used to the latest changes first. I think the upgrade of DS is the way ...

Re: rowlandhills's System

Realised that I'd not updated this thread in a long time. A few changes since the last post... First change is that in July last year I bought a used Tundra 1.2 to replace the 2200/D and have been very pleased with it ever since. I think there's a great synergy between the Tundra and the 242s. Oddly...

I thought that this post by Briain over on the Linn Forum was worth sharing in the context of this thread: I've been part of blind testing experiments (both running them and being blind tested) which were surprisingly unproductive. They can show up 'tonal' differences (or differences in perceived dy...

Re: The death of K400

Interesting development. Not really a surprise, I think it's been on the cards since the death of K600, which meant that 3 way speakers needed a split cable to run aktiv, and the market has certainly shown a willingness to pay a higher price for cables than K400/600. I'm glad that I have a couple of...

I know that the Sagatun and Sagatun Mono can both be grouped so that they can work as a six or even eight channel volume control. You'd still need something to do the multichannel decoding though.

Re: Multi-amplification with Ak 2200 balanced

As ThomasOK has said, you do indeed need to open the case to install the internal links, but it is a very quick thing to do, and there's no soldering or anything, just undo four screws, slide the top case off, plug in a short cable, put the lid back on and do the screws up. Are your 242s currently p...

Re: Multi-amplification with Ak 2200 balanced

With balanced Akurate (or older Chakra branded) amps, you have to use the internal links between channels. These only exist between pairs of channels, so 1/2 on a 2200 and 1/2 and 3/4 on a 4200. RCA amps can use external or internal links, but I think Linn decided that there wasn't enough space for ...

Re: Linn announces new Exakt speakers

That's the Akurate EDSM, so no analogue outputs. Worth £2750 at previous retail prices, so that suggests that the 520s are £6500 or so if you already have an Exakt equipped player.

Re: [IC] Linn Akurate 242's Rosewood

I'd be interested in the stands...

I've got Cherry (with black arrays) 242 mk 2s, but with the original stands. Just outside York myself, so it would be an easy swap if you were interested. I'm not sure how much difference the stands make to the resale price.
