Linn is downsizing!

Got this from Teatime at the Swedish forum: http://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/news/display.var.1336328.0.0.php Is this the beginning of the end of Linn? Very sad news indeed. For the workers at Linn and for all its customers and retailers. :cry: How will the future of Linn look like when there is no mor...

Hi Bonzo, I've got a black Lingo2, and I want a silver one. I'm interested in your silver box. Purchase your parts or maybe a trade? Swap the whole Lingo or just the parts? It is not to expensive to just buy the parts. That was my original plan. Interestingly, for the prices in Sweden the black stuf...

I was at my dealer yesterday. The keel is still VERY impressing! :shock: When listening to Keel/Ekos SE/Klyde I got an almost unreal feeling. (First time I heard the Keel with Ekos SE/MC, Akito 2b/Adikt before.) It feels like someone is pulling your leg with a practical joke. It feels like someone h...

Thomas: If the Trampolin/2 is just 5%, then I really have something to look forward to Yes, indeed you have! That was my dealers impression to. The Keel was stunning and he felt that the Trampolin II was a very small (but noticeable) difference in comparison. More like the icing on the cake. So I t...

You have convinced me, Linnofil. I'm going to buy one. I thought the price was high but will probably think it's money well spent ... Can't resist taking it to the next level. Sorry I've missed this post. So you have a Keel on order? Fantastic news!!! It's going to be great to hear your opinion. Ha...

What can I say... I'm speechless. Was it that good, Linnofil?? Yes, it really was! I was speechles to! (Fortunately I could still use my fingers on the keyboard. ;) ) We both know how big the Valhalla-Lingo1 difference is. And the difference is about the same for Lingo1 to Lingo2 (depending on indi...

Sounds like a good job. Congratulations! If you wait 6 months I think a few Ekos 2 should show up on the used market. It will make the decision easier!

Re: My system

When I think about it it strikes me as really stupid of me to spend all the money on 5125 and Ninkas before buying an Ekos. This (smart) "source first" thinking makes me remember when a friend and I each had well installed Linn systems, he had Karik/Numerik/Kairn/3xKlout/Keltik and I had only Karik...

For CD extraction, I recommend the free software Exact Audio Copy: Interesting stuff. Have you compared this with other tools? The EAC doesn't convert CD/WAV to MP3, or? What is the best MP3 encoder? I have heard some recommend the LAME encoder, but how to download and use it? Linnofil: I would sus...

I tried the CDX2 (with internal power supply) in my home for a week about a year ago. I think my Ikemi was a lot better. I'm certain my Classik Movie Di was better to. Now I have the Majik CD, a very nice step up from the Ikemi. Try the Majik in your home, I'm sure you will like it, for the price. (...

I guess the quality of the conversion from .wav to .mp3 is essential as well? I for sure have heard both really crappy -mp3-files and some better sounding ones. This matter is also source first! Has anyone some input on this matter, how to get the best .mp3's from your records? That would be a very...

Thanks for the tips, Linnofil. I have thought a few days about the portable issue. A few years back I was tempted to release a portable headphone amp, but when I had a look at the market it was already flooded with different models ... the only reason I see to enter that field would be if the sound...

Good portable music. Are there any options out there?

It’s a little bit quiet on the forum now, so I thought I should start a tread about portable music. In the 1980’ies the only portable sound was the cassette player, mostly the Walkman series from Sony. I myself had (and still have) the best one, A Sony Walkman WM-D6C . When recording from a good sou...

Great Chris! That will be very interesting. Your blog was bookmarked hours ago... I'm also very glad that you/Linn keep track of some of the Linn discussions on the web. To bad you can't read Swedish! Probably the best Linnforum in the world is in Swedish, here: http://www.selleri.de/phpBB2/index.php

Absolute bargain of the year? I was about to purchase a couple of small systems for my kids (5 and 6 years). I took a walk trough some local "HiFi" supermarkets. I had a couple of good CD's with me. By playing 20 sec on each system I soon discovered what was the best one. I checked all systems from ...
