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

I updated my software last night so I've got the pins. I can't see any use for these within Kazoo, other than perhaps assigning a pin to a specific radio station. So I could have a Radio Paradise pin, instead of having to go to all the trouble of selecting the Radio input AND THEN having to select ...

Re: New Linn Forum

I’d be quite happy if they dropped the Third Party section, there are other forums more suited. I don’t think it does Linn any favours and, in my opinion, attracts too many of the “my only piece of Linn is a pre-cirkus LP12 with no baseboard and I don’t understand Tunedem” variety.

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

Charly, surely the whole idea is that, with a comprehensively modelled room, you won’t have filters which need to be dropped, or custom filters which need to be created. I’ve had a cursory read through the instruction manual and am really impressed with the options they’ve introduced. Should you be ...

It looks very comprehensive, looking forward to the Exakt version. I imagine it will reduce Paulsurround’s air miles somewhat.

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

I think it might refer to eliminating the DS products. And personally I did find it a bit confusing (DS, DSM some with, some without Exakt links, some with some without analog output). J.

Absolutely. A small but very significant point which, I feel, can often escape some of the naysayers.

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

Does anyone know when the Selekt is coming to market? With Pins being a selling point, and with hardware buttons, Davaar 64 and Kazoo will need releasing first wouldn't they? Tom O’Keefe said earlier that the software would be out next week (25th), although just SO, not SO+ yet. Although there seem...

Power supply - one of the What Hi-Fi pages has a picture of a Selekt with the cover off. W...

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

I am a little unsure about how Linn is going about releasing this as it mainly talks about dealers using it to optimize systems for their customers and making it available on the dealer portal. I’ll be extremely annoyed if something as useful and powerful as this is restricted to dealer access and ...

Some people just don't know how to keep a secret! It can't just be a typo for LP12 as the footprint of the Selekt DSM is square and not even close to that of the rectangular Sondek. The LP23 is Linn's new close and play square turntable made to play the new 9" (23cm) records Linn is also introducin...

Is Selekt the new Akurate? It certainly looks a lot nicer. Interestingly, the report talks of a new SO too, presumably available in October to the existing DS owners.
