I'm now a proud owner of a Slipsik 2.0 and I am very pleased with it. :D I am using it with a Bonnec Timpano preamp and together they outperform my old (slimline) Kairn by a wide margin. The Slipsik should be the most important part of that equation since it is higher up in the chain. I highly recom...

I have upgraded my system quite a lot since my last post in this thread. Besides the Ekos2 I have sold the Kairn and bought a Slipsik and a Bonnec Timpano (line-only version). I used the Ekos with the Kairn for a few days only so I it is safe for me to say that Slipsik and Timpano is by a wide margi...

I use the Lejonklou power cord, it's better than the original Linn chords I used before.

If you are willing to spend that amount of money on you turntable I think you should consider the Cirkus bearing at the same time. The price of the bearing is low in comparison to the Keel and you dealer really should be able to give you a good price considering you buy the Keel at the same time. Re...

My favourite name is Keilidh.

I have Sondek, Akito, Adikt, Kairn and Ninka at present... Eveything but the Lingo and the (boooring) AV 5125 is properly named!

On the demo I attended, it was clearly better. No more than that IMHO. I agree, but that demo was not very good anyway. Somehow the maxed out Linn-system managed to sound boring, maybe there was just too many people in the room or something (I heard the same system later the same night, but only wi...

Thank's :D

I'm not buying a new Ekos, the job is not that good ;) I have snatched one of the first Ekos SE - byers 2:nd hand Ekos 2.

Re: My system

He had Karik/Numerik/Kairn/3xKlout/Keltik and I had only Karik/Kairn/LK280/Index II. Still we both agreed my system played better music. Reason? I had a new Karik with "Slimline SMPS" and he had the old transformer PS in his Karik/Numerik. Simply source first! I can imagine that very easy. I bought...

I've also heard some terrible stories about bad retipping, but never regarding Expert Stylus. They also replace everything in the cartridge that needs to be replaced, and they are supposed to do a good job. I believe that retipping at Expert stylus is considerably cheaper than § 800 – 1000 (if it is...

Re: My system

I am in the same situation, I want to upgrade my LP12 since my DVD/CD-playback source has gotten too much financial attention lately... I still play more vinyl than CD. Do you think upgrading to a used Ekos will match the Keel-upgrade if you look at gained performance per dollar? Or maybe you start...

Retipping

I'm considering buying a 2:nd hand MC and send i to Expert stylus for retipping. A new Klyde is simply too expensive for me, I don't want to limit my listening time because I have to consider pickup-hours. I'm currently using a Adikt. I will soon buy a Ekos and since I already have a Kairn it's obvi...

Re: What's in a Naim?

I have been thinking of replacing my trusted Karik III/Numerik, but the Linn Majik did not seem like a major step forward when I first heard it, and the Unidisks are a bit pricey, so I have been thinking of looking at the Naim CDX2. Anyone out there that could offer an opinion on the relative merit...

You should definetly go for the Lingo 2. I would guess that the performance of Lingo 2 - Adikt is better then Lingo 1 - Akiva.

Azazello's system

I currently play my records on an all Linn- system containing: LP12 (cirkus-Lingo-Akito-Adikt) - Kairn (early spec, but updated with Slimline power supply) - 5125 - (active) Ninka. I'm happy with the sound (and the music), Lejonklou himself has installed it (what a difference it made). But I think I...
