The only other optical interface I can think of besides SPDIF is Fibre-Channel, but that would be an overkill.

Cremona,

You're spending too much time trying to tweak you system instead of enjoying the music you're listening to. The audiophilism bug has really bitten you!!!!

Relax and enjoy the music, using the Tune Method of course!

If I recall correctly the Linn cartridges were manufactured/voiced by:

Linn Basik (AT95E), K9, K18 -> Audio Technica
Trak, Asak, Asaka, Karma -> Sumiko
Troika, Klyde, Adikt -> Goldring
Arkive(s), Akiva -> Lyra (voiced by Jonathan Carr, Lyra's chief designer)

Yeez!!! I used to sell and service all those brands (except ARCAM) 21 years ago, before I fisnished college and switched to the IT business. The only good thing that has happened to me in those 21 years since I switched to IT was meeting my wife and my kids. Man, I would love to go back to the Hi-Fi...

Since RipStation MicroDS support 'ReplayGain' it should be interesting in comparing values between RS and EAC.

Nice way of keeping her asleep!!

The only drawback is that when she is 15-16 she will not ask for a BMW, she will ask for a Linn system!!!

Re: Buggy Twonkymedia!

I finally found what was going on with Twonky and got it to work! In the 'Music Tree' screen there is a new 'custom' option in the 'pull-down' menu that needs to be selected prior to saving the configuration. In the Linn A-DS installation manual the selected option is 'Advanced Configuration'. After...

Hi,

I don't know if other DS users are having issues with TwonkyMedia, but the app is really buggy!!!! Every configuration change I make is lost after a NAS restart!!!!

And speaking of which, can you connect the DS directly to the NAS box? That would rule out even more of the network. And how do I control the DS if not in the network? Remember that my NAS is not a PC and cannot add a 2nd NIC card... Doh! The supplied remote control, but its a huge step backwards...

What RJ-45 cable???? There was no Ethernet cable supplied in my Akurate DS box, only the serial cable to connect the DS to the Kontrol.

Hi vicdiaz, If you've replaced the hub with a switch then it's looking less likely to be a network issue, but there are networking areas that could still be the cause: - 1. There could be a faulty Ethernet cable causing link errors, so it's worth swapping these out. 2. It's probably worth trying to...

CD Compilations

Hi, I'm having issues with CD compilations and the way Twonky/ADS play them. With the "Raising the Mamooth" CD from "The Explorer's Club" there is a 1-2 second pause between each song, something that does not happens when played thru my Genki (basically a vvveeerrryyy lllooonnnggg sssooonnnggg).

Well, switching to a D-Link Gigabit switch did not solve the problem with the 24/96 files....

BTW, the DS only connects at 100Mb/Full. There is no option in LinnConfig to force it to a higher rate.

I'll install Twonky on my notebook and see how it behaves.

Hi, I just finished installing my Akurate DS using a D-LINK DNS-323 NAS and have a few comments about the configuration. 1. Make sure you use a network switch and NOT a network hub. Network collisions will cause gaps in music. 2. On the D-LINK NAS install TwonkyMedia. The included uPnP AV server doe...
