Re: Third party controller software for Linn DS

For iPhone, iPad or Android, Lumin is superb.

Worth spending time with and getting to know. Has lots of useful features. Free.

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

The Tune Method is mandatory on this forum and I will not allow any debate about that fact - we've been there many times before and it leads nowhere. Except that valued contributors, who don't have endless amounts of time to spend on forums, get tired of reading meaningless discussions and leave. G...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

It seems that most of us experienced Linnies on this thread have been invited to join the development forum. I have too. After getting over the one second flattery that they thought me worth asking, I thought about it a bit more. Unless more details come up to change my mind, I will not join. I thin...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

I say this slightly tongue in cheek, but... I commented earlier that the Linn forum simply needed better moderating. It is interesting that, from my point of view, we have had a most informative and adult conversation on this thread about a sensitive, and for some, emotional issue. But it has been m...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Actually without being morbid I think it is all part of dumbing down of the audio industry to stay alive. Actually I can foresee Naim and Linn no longer existing in ten years' time because of 1) company follies 2) the changes in home entertainment 3) the forthcoming financial crisis in the UK Hope I...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

I agree with Sunbeam.
A bit like dog shit in the park. Spoils it for everyone.

Moderation of the forum was all that was necessary. They could have even have asked for voluntary moderators. Some forums have that system.........

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

I may be talking rubbish but is there not a way of making a modified SO2 file look like an SO1 file and go into Konfig, space, open, inport and then load it into the new browser software as if it were a genuine "old" configuration?

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

donuk, if your DS is fine on the local network but seems unstable when connecting to the cloud it may point to your ISP/modem. Do you have similar issues streaming from say Tidal/qobuz? Thanks for the thought Timster, but Qobuz (always) works fine. Same problem on my hard wired Mac, and wifi iPhone...

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

Here is a summary of what I have found so far: I have made various configurations for SO2 in recent days and tried adjustments in different extremes and interim settings. SO2 does seem to clarify the sound and may suit some systems. I regret the absence of graphic adjustments, so I have reverted to ...

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

I sincerely hope that the bass and treble shelf features are introduced, as I listen in a relatively 'bright' room with a lot of hard surfaces: the system sounds best with a 2db treble cut @ 12k hz (and +2db bass gain @ 65hz) I use them the same way as you do. I understand from Linn that they will ...

Is it my stupidity, but I cannot find anywhere in the new scheme of things to put in the height of the speaker stands, i.e distance from bottom of speaker to the floor. Anyone found this?

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

Again thanking Mr L for letting this continue. Whatever the future, we would be wise to keep copies of recent Konfig and Firmwares. These might be necessary presumably if anyone wants to run a streamer without an internet connection. And if charges appear, we an at least fall back on these. The good...

Re: Naim Powerline for Akurate Radikal

I used to own a Powerline and tried it on Linn 2200, Majik DS and ADS, and Tundra 2 While it did make an audible difference to the power supply on my Naim CD5, it did not improve the above. I have never found anything that actually sounds more musical that the standard leads that come with the kit. ...

Totally agree Charile1 with your post, which leaves the door open for a variety of opinions about amplifiers. It depends upon what you yourself are doing.
