Re: Komponent 110 and Lejonklou

Weren't these the series that were outsourced to China for manufacturing? Yes, I think that is the main reason why they stopped making them. Getting spare parts took to long time, big batches in manufacturing, getting a bad reputation from the "made in PRC" stickers etc. But that is just me guessin...

Re: Komponent 110 and Lejonklou

Somewhere deep in my memory cells I had filed away that ML had reviewed the 110s as musical on this forum and possibly a Linnofil on the Linn forum? Komponent 110 is a brilliant speaker! I really like them and think they have great musicality and dynamics. But not in the lower frequencies. They are...

Re: Ofil Stands, by Linnofil

can we exspect somé changes in the future? No changes are planned right now. I don't have any 3677 speakers myself and have to test all developments at customers homes. That is a bit limiting and even if Christian (mostly) and Fredrik has helped me out, I need to leave them to enjoy their systems i...

Re: Ofil Stands, by Linnofil

Congratulations Linnofil on your great stands! They look like instant classics Thanks Marco! Is the medium gloss finish a fixed choice or does that come in optional finishes? The only thing I don't do myself is paint them. Powdercoat requires rather special facilities, so I have that made by a comp...

Re: Ofil Stands, by Linnofil

Excellent work, Linnofil. Thanks! 1.) How do the stands interface to the speakers? Do the upper spikes go directly into the wood or MDF or is there something in between? The spikes go directly Into the MDF of the speaker. In the center of the front and rear 25 mm MDF. For best result there should n...

Re: JBL 3677

When Linnofil first came to my house he said something like “It is strange to see that 15 inch unit and hear a 5 inch unit playing” Next listening session the filers had been moved and we also tested the new stands he concluded “Now I can both see and hear a 15 inch unit” I think this is the "probl...

Re: Slipsik 6

I always had Gaio to Slipsik as the final upgrade of the Majik Lp12 - but it sounds like it is quite an improvement, in the above system. Even if I think the Slipsik 6 is really great and very worthwhile improvement for most people, I don't think it defies source first logic. But it is a very conve...

Re: Slipsik 6

I listened to the new Slipsik 6 last week and managed to compare it to a Slipsik 5.1. I came in to the Tonläget shop when a customer had a 5.1 with him for a comparison. I was kindly invited to sit in and it was very interesting indeed! The difference was obvious and big. With the 5.1 it sounded lik...

I realize that this question is a difficult one ... It would be good to get an indication of which part has the biggest influence It really is a sum of all parts.
