Hi Charlie I get most of my 2nd hand albums from ebay ;the advantage of spending a barrow load on a turntable is that cheap 'any old pressing' sound great so one can afford to become less anal about it(maybe we should email our fave artists and ask them to be a bit more tuneful on their next album) ...

Hi Charlie I think the new supa dupa pressings etc are sometimes taken from the original master where the 1st pressing album is from the mixed master,if you know what I mean,that's my guess anyway.I think the mixing plays a large part in the sound and the 'feel' of an album,so the new pressings can ...

Hi Lejonklou, the Kuzma Vinvac RCM gets a good review by Roy Gregory; It's £400 and it looks the business if I wasn't skint I'd probably buy one,for looks alone of course:It'd look great next to my KitchenAid coffee grinder.It has a small diameter so you don't put the clean side on the grubby mat li...

You're correct linnofil I lost mine and the new one sounds terrible,I must admit the first difference I noticed was that it had a higher ouput thru the linn compared to the old version.I wasn't initially enamored by the player but I thought it was just the particular cds i had ripped in,tho for 2 we...

I always thought that the Lingo put a lot of noise back into the mains so it should be plugged in together with the old linn power amps on the same strip away from pre amps and pre pre amps.I think i once used an old AM or MW radio to listen to the mains noise and when i plugged in the Kairn the noi...

Talking to Gilad and the bloke who developed the DS I think his name is Keith, i doubt Linn will be bringing out any supa dupa cd playa like the cd12 in the future. Keith told me he wanted to make the DS a true source,so no way was he going to add a cd player or a facility to plug in an ipod !!?? no...

I listened to the Klimax DS last night,it was very impressive,it made the Akurate cd player sound clunky.The demonstration was done by Gilad,and he did a very good job.I think the Akurate DS will be out by the month it'll have the same DAC as the Klimax and you'll be able to plug in your Ikemi Thoma...

Well done Azezllo!You know it makes sense, that broken sound you are talking about is just the speakers hang on in there and youll forget the sound of the Ninkas,i feel however that if you used an old pair of kans, II or earlier you'll be blown away and you will really hear what your LP12 is up to.O...

Of those I have tested, the old ones have been a bit better, in my opinion. Makes me wonder why Linn did the change. The new type sounds more direct and precise, but the old type has more flow. Has anyone else compared them? Please share your experience! Using the tune method i prefer the new ones,...
