That's a real shame - did you find one for a good price? Here in the UK Play.com are selling it for half the list price - £149 instead of £300, although as I believe it's been discontinued there are probably many stores selling for a similar amount. Paypal just refunded my $$$!!!!! Tonite I'm going...

Been in IT myself for more than 24 years and I agree with what you found. If there is no difference in the digital domain how can there be any perceived difference in sound/musicality/etc.?

It's really cool that you wrote a DS simulator!!!

I just spent a few minutes reading this thread and for what its worth the first real Linn product I ever heard was the Linn Basik phono cartridge back in 1984.

I totally aggree with Fred in this aspect. A telephone may be a tonal disaster but it may perform musically better than other "tonal" speakers.

If at least you can get gapless playback to work and have the DS continue playing music while the Nokia sleeps that will be more than enough for me to buy the Nokia and pay you a fee for the software!!!

It's really sad when such a young musician dies.....

I never heard of him before but did a quick check on Wikipedia and seems he was really talented and famous in the Northern countries.

Going to try getting some of his music in the next few days to pay proper tribute to him and his relatives.

The proper order to install 'Bute' is: 0. Uninstall all previous versions of LinnConfig and LinnGui. 1. Install 'Bute' version of LinnConfig 2. Unpack 'Bute' Softpack 3. Run new LinnConfig and flash DS (takes a few minutes to do, in my case about 5-7 mins...). 4. Install 'Bute' version of LinnGUI 5....

The sleep-mode is one of the issues with the Nokia N800. I've read of a way to disable the sleep-mode but don't remember were. :(

Don't have an answer about the repeat mode, but I don't think it works.
