Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

They haven't said as much, but with the re-introduction of the Klimax DS and Akurate DS in Katalyst versions, are Linn recognising that a 'source first' company ought to produce their best digital sources in a form that can live happily in non-Linn systems? Of course, its good to see these products...

Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

My thoughts are that they are shifting their business towards what they see as a future market since all of us old school enthusiasts are slowly kicking the bucket. It's a brave new world; sleek looks, wireless, calibrated to the room, etc. and nothing like as enjoyable to listen to but their new c...

Re: Linn Reconsider 'Source First'

As part of system hierarchy, Linn used to talk of preserving the signal as it travels through the system (or words to that effect), now they seem to advocate deliberate manipulation of the signal... Well, that's a matter of interpretation. Manipulation sounds like a bad thing but remember that unin...

Re: Linn Klimax Twin or Solos

If selling your existing amps allows you enough funds for Solos/D, choosing a Twin would be a shame :)

Re: Shipping used Lejonklou Equipment in UK

Try interparcel.com, they'll give you plenty of choices.

However, size is not really the issue, getting adequate insurance is usually the problem. I find UPS will provide adequate insurance, at a fairly steep price.

Re: Possible Upgrade

I would be interested to understand if the KDSM vs KDS plus KK comparisons here were all pre-Katalyst, or if some were post Katalyst.

Re: Linn HDMI Boards

I will answer this question based on a question I put to Linn about the surround processor board as I suspect the same answer would apply, in principle at least. My question was this - can I buy a DSM with the later HDMI board and swap it into another DSM, thereby enabling the older DSM to support t...

Re: Help with summer house system

Sunbeamgls, do you have any experience of Tidsbury passive pre? It looks very nice (same enclousure as Lejonklou?) and it might be better at low levels but probably not at higher levels? A Kikkin, or Kikkin 2 with 2-3 inputs, would be cool. I have one I use in systems from time to time. I used it 4...

Re: Replacement part for 5140 mid range

They are Tukan units in the 5140, Katan / Trikan in the Espek.

The Katan drivers do sound much better, so possibly worth seeking out a Trikan and replace them both?

Re: Help with summer house system

You could consider a Tidsbury passive pre to allow for a volume control that doesn't throw bits away :)

They're tiny and cheap.
