Re: Linn announces new Exakt speakers

I was at the customer launch event tonight and they're really not that bad looking or sounding. A friend and I agreed that hopefully they are what the Cayenne is to Porsche - a money spinner that lets them keep producing the enthusiast products. I also see it as a bit like a "gateway" drug. Get one ...

Re: Linn 4200/D For Sale

I'm sure that Charlie1 will comment, but what I'd expect to be the case is that he kept the original Chakra PSU when the upgrade was done, and has placed that in the box which the new Dynamik PSU was supplied (as it's the right size box, obviously!). So the 4200 currently has the Dynamik fitted, and...

Re: How do you like your second system?

Interesting update Charlie1. I think most people who've tried Tidal have found it somewhat uninvolving compared to local FLAC rips, and have fallen back to Spotify through a combination of cost, ease of use, and perhaps to some extent musicality. It might be worth trying Qobuz too, although the inte...

Re: Lejonklou pre and power amp package.

I'm sorry, I was being unclear myself when trying to clarify what you had for sale, Ozzy! Currently, you have this advert (Tundra plus Sagatun for £2500) and another advert which also lists a Tundra for £1500. I was trying to understand whether they were two different Tundras and you would sell both...

Re: Lejonklou pre and power amp package.

Sorry, my question should have been clearer:

Do you have two Tundras that you're trying to sell?

Could I pay you £5k and get a Sagatun and two Tundras, for example?

Majik DSM with 109s on Linn stands and an Oppo. I am adding a REL S3 sub to the 109s. It will be interesting to hear the subs and the new systems. During this time I purchased a Tundra (15 months ago) but the shipping box is still sealed. Not sure that it will find a home here. It is very simple to...

And I now prefer SPACE switched off. And again you slip in a very interesting point almost as an afterthought! Given that your room and your speakers are unchanged, do you think that there is a difference caused by the amplifier, or is it that you've slightly changed what you're listening for, or w...

Re: Preamps with DSs

I prefer my Akurate DS/1 going straight into the Tundra to the previous arrangement of ADS / Majik Kontrol / 2200D Interesting (as was the rest of your post, to be fair). So in your case, a Tundra 2.0 (stereo) is actually replacing both a Majik Kontrol and a 2200/D? As you say, Ozzzy (and others) w...

To clarify, is this:

Oak Akubarik Exakt speakers with black pods and black feet

Wasn't sure if you meant AEDSM or ADSM/1, and if you meant Akubarik or Akudorik.

Re: Preamps with DSs

Davaar 30 can be dangerous on any DS! Linn have officially withdrawn 29 and 30 due to a slight risk of completely "bricking" your DS! Apparently it's not an issue if successfully running now, but they don't recommend upgrading to 29 or 30 if you're on an earlier version. See this thread: http://foru...
