Re: Ittok LV-II vs Project 9

How does the new Linn-sanctioned Project 9 tonearm compares (in tune and musicality) to the old-and-venerable Ittok LV-II?? I would say, not (at all) as good. I have compared the Project 9 with the Akito 2b and the Akito is significantly better than the Project 9. And the Project 9 also has a speci...

After completing your 'isolated' calibration (souncard-only and souncard...

Katan xover network order

Out of curiosity, what type of xover network order design is used in Katan's internal passive xover?? Just got my new subwoofer and want to match its phase delay to the Katans. I will tune it using the tune method but I just want to try this before spending too much time tweaking back and forth. :mr...

Re: Lingo 2 with new motor

Otherwise I'll ship it in original packing. Complete with installation, I'm asking 8000 SEK. Haven't quite decided the price without......

Guys, the change you've noticed its a bug in the FPGA code in which left and right channels get switched.

Re: French version off leiads

Thanks for offering your help! When you unpack the archive file leiads_0.4-4.tar.gz you'll find a file called intl.c in the directory "src" which contains all the texts in different languages (currently: English, German and Swedish). Just replace the English texts with French ones, and add yourself...

Thanks for you replay ledcam! This morning I visited the REL dealer and did not like REL's current line-up. Too much hi-tech looks for my liking. As expected, the salesperson pushed and demoed another brand (JL Audio), impressive and gut-wrenching bass, but not of my liking (no tune at all!!!). I wa...

Looking for a subwoofer

Finally I've accepted that I need a subwoofer for my setup. I'd much prefer to get larger speakers but there is not that much space where my Katans are sitting up right now and my wife would kill me if I try to get something more visible than the Katans (she think they are SO big!!!) As usual, there...

Hi,

On my bedroom system I'm using a Windows Notebook (HP NC6320) with Windows XP SP3 running Squeezecenter 7.3.1 feeding a Firestone Fubar II USB DAC + Firestone Supplier power supply. The DAC is connected to a Naim Nait 5i integrated amp and speakers are Rega Kytes.

It makes wonderful music!
