Re: Source HAKAI components Cross-Country

I have found a site in the U.K. that claims to have 10+ of the GA-N3160N-D3V motherboards in stock, but they only ship to U.K. addresses. It can be found here: https://www.kikatek.com/Product/1070825-GAN3160ND3V-GIGABYTE-Int-MB-N310N-D3V-DDR4-M-ITX Are any of our U.K. members familiar with this out...

Re: HAKAI playground

In the UK there is a terrible radio station called BBC Radio 2, it basically plays music from 30 odd years ago,obviously hated by teenagers, I know my kids are always moaning about it. You'd be amazed how many of my contemporaries say how good radio 2 has become. You couldn't make it up. lol

Re: HAKAI playground

This has been stated here and there many times before but I doubt it can be mentioned enough. It is amazing how much more accessible a tuneful system makes music. I had not heard this Ane Brun piece before and didn't know who it was. I had to do some searching based on the lyrics to find it but aft...

Re: Cables

Got the supra USB cable yesterday and initial impressions are that solos and lead instruments especially guitar solos sound more important and engaging. The one criticism I had with the Hakai was that lyrics were not as discernable as I would have liked/expected. Now they are, very much so and with ...

Re: General discussion about HAKAI

Are people using Volumio as just a renderer (controlling it from another app, like Lumin, Bubble etc), as opposed to it finding the music to play? I've just put a Hakai together and going through the find the library stage. It sees my Synology NAS, but not the shares. I tried manually connecting wi...

Re: HAKAI playground

Can you hear the distortion/clipping thing on the Hakai David? Now that you mention it.... In the room, the ADS/3 is undoubtedly "cleaner" and free from distortion, and the Hakai brings not only musicality but a little "edge". Now, is that the motherboard or the DAC?

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Yes, interestingly HAKAI has none of that digitized, fragmented sound. It's certainly not perfect in all aspects, but it's very direct, real and engaging. I've heard a couple of versions of HAKAI built from bits that are (or were at the time!) currently available. Whilst the original HAKAI might be...

I'm wondering if you're maybe not suffering from mains variation. How does Hakai sound in the mornings No its not that. It can sound quite bad in the middle of the night as well. I’m also under the impression that the badness stays for days, it’s not tied to just a listening session. Since I got th...
