They are officially sanctioned by Fredrik Lejonklou. The Lejonklou logo remains the property of Lejonklou. For every mug sold, £5...

Hi Thomas

For bulk purchases I will get individual shipping quotes - please PM me with the number of mugs you're thinking of.

Thanks

Re: LEJONKLOU MUGS!

Hi All Thanks for the enthusiastic responses. The sample mug has arrived and its looking good. When the poll closes I'll be putting up a post in the "for sale" section of the forum and taking orders through direct messaging and keeping track that way. I'll update here when the "for sale" post is liv...

Re: LEJONKLOU MUGS!

I have said it will be given consideration. At the end of August when the poll closes I will advise on how the charity money will be distributed. You will be free to support or not, based on that information.

Re: Karousel

One thing that is very seldom referred to here is the communication of the replay system. I have a hunch that the better the system is at communicating the music the less you'll want to listen to that particular album. Could this be construed as boring-sounding? I mean, who wants to listen to the s...

Re: Does a better system make you want to hear the same album less often?

My experience is one that aligns with some of the above, but none of them entirely. I've found that improvement in the musical enjoyment of my system does a couple of things. First, it makes me want to listen to my favourite music more than ever. I want to put on an old or repeatedly played piece ti...

Its an interesting idea Spannko. But what about the other 1000s of charities that aren't on the options list? Can't cover every eventuality. Let's see what the sales numbers are like. If there are enough sales that means spreading the funds around make it sensible then I'll do that. If it means one ...

I've discussed this with Fredrik and we've agreed that the mugs will be sold through this forum to raise money for charity. Approximate costs at the moment are £12 including UK mainland postag...

Your Linn dealer can get then from the factory for you. I think they're about 10Euro or so.

Linn has had promotional stuff from time to time but they mostly seem to go to dealers and distributors.

Re: Linn Katan link board

Both boards should be in place at all times.

The one closest to the cabinet can be in either orientation. The configuration words for the configuration you want to use (e.g. single wire passive) on the outer board should be facing you.

Re: Hierarchy within the speaker

There’s no doubt that it’s important for the cabinet and drive units to work together harmoniously. But more important than the x/o ? If we follow the path of the signal, the x/o has to be more important than the drive unit/cabinet. Not more expensive necessarily, but if musical information is lost...

Re: Hierarchy within the speaker

I suspect the cabinet is possibly more fundamental than the crossover and possibly is on a par with or before the drive unit. I’ve not heard of anyone saying this about a cabinet before. What makes you think so, sunbeam? The driver and the cabinet are a mechanical system, dependent on each other fo...

Perhaps, Charlie1, there is a step earlier in the hierarchy that you haven't included. The competence of the designer and their ability to understand that drivers, crossovers (or not) and cabinets all sit somewhere in the hierarchy - I suspect the cabinet is possibly more fundamental than the crosso...
