Re: Upgrade advice (Katan or Akudorik)

Hi folks! I'm thinking about an upgrade and would love to hear some opinions before I start the auditioning. I currently run Majik DS-I-Majik C5100-Aktiv Katans. I was thinking of either going: - Klimax DSM-Majik C5100-Aktiv Katans route (source first) or - Majik DS-Exakt Akudoriks I'm looking for ...

Re: Upgrading Linn DS units

Now that the Lejonklou streamer is definitely on the back burner and Linn have sadly declined to offer future upgrades to DS units , or upgrade existing DS units to DSM, owners of KDS /2 or the non katalyst ADS have difficult choices to make. Should they upgrade to Katalyst , whilst Linn are still ...

Re: Aro versus Ekos SE

Hi, In a Linn system am concerned I maybe am missing something with the synergy an Ekos Se would bring to the LP12 and Kandid ....problem is will any improvement out weigh the expense and effort required to get a new LP12... You lose the synergy with the tron, out of interest did you hear an urika?

Re: For Sale - Linn Majik-i Integrated Amp Dynamik

There are regular deals to reduce Ebay fees, but not Paypal fees. The only deals ive seen is free listing, which is minimal. They still take 10% selling fees, up to the £2500 threshold.

Re: Does clearer lyrics = better tune?

Thanks for your response Spannko. Logically I struggle that easier to understand lyrics don’t result in better tune. I’m not disagreeing with you at all. My thought process is if lyrics are now easier to understand, wouldn’t the tune be better as more information is being presented than before? No.

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

Upgrade DS to Katalyst DS is still possible? Otherwise the value of every DS without Katalyst literally dropped to 0. As I understood it, it remained possible after the DS to DSM upgrades were discontinued. What I don't know is whether it will remain possible (at least for a time) once there are no...

With the Majik DS, Akurate DS and Klimax DS being dropped from the range, will the Katalyst upgrade for existing owners of an ADS and KDS remain possible?

Re: Linn forum down?

I am curious as to where this sits. A new Akurate is £7500 and Majik at £3000 yet this is priced at £4000 for the basic version and £6750 for the top end. Presumably, it will make the Akurate obsolete? Very strange product segmentation. It does not affect akurate. The top end at 6750 contains a pow...

Re: Akubarik 5 x Tundra 2.5 Akurate exaktbox KDS3

When you say single tundra passive, was that with the KDS3 digital volume control? I'd expect a Sagatun to help passive things along a bit, without threatening too much to pop the sweet spot, add to the rat's nest or dent the bank balance compared against the exakt setup.

Re: Akubarik 5 x Tundra 2.5 Akurate exaktbox KDS3

Jury still out, it does show how good a single tundra passive is. Both very tuneful and involving, still a hint of digitalness in the higher frequencies, this manifests itself in a slightly cold way, whereas passive is warmer presentation. Having OCD I don't think I could live with the rats nest of ...

For me, it’s still 53.125. I haven’t tried every recent release, but those that I have were not as musical.
