Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I think its difficult to decide I find both very good but since I cant decide it seems that both have differend qualities - I tend to like B better if both B‘s are the same setup

Re: Hermanns System

when I heard Take Five on D I thought that must be the new Tundra 3‘s as I never heard that soo much at ease. And I thought that cant be bettered.

But C just topped it.

Re: Recommended control points

I didnt meant to create trouble our nets closing in on you when I asked the question about Apple TV - I was just thinking out loud what would create the most flexibility/value for a relatively low price.

Re: Recommended control points

Re: Recommended control points

not related to the topic before but I just thought if it is possible to use an Apple TV as control point for Källa and Spotify- it seems to have Airplay and can send and receive. I know it would be less convenient because you need to switch on the TV for having a display but than you can use a phone...

You already have an Iphone 11 which you can use, your partner has an Iphone 11 which she can use - if thats an issue if one of you is leaving the house (which shouldnt as both of you have an 11) the other can live with the Ipad for that moment if you or...

Re: Linn Lp 12 orientation springs low frequency swing

the spring topic is complex and in the end all the 3 springs need to work together rather than against each other. Yes turning the springs helps to cancel sideways movement. But that is art. I believe what you state is right. There was even a test having your needle on the record without spinning th...

Re: Pre-amplifiers/streamers for my newly acquired Tundra 2.2 Tarandus.

there might be advantages and disadvantages to both (no free lunch) with switch: +you are not hearing the noise of the other component if there is any significant difference -might influence musicality - however every other pre amp has to switch inputs either by an electronic switch or by a mechanic...

Re: Pre-amplifiers/streamers for my newly acquired Tundra 2.2 Tarandus.

That’s why Superkikkin has two inputs. I assume there is no input switch similar to Boazu? No, it’s a mechanical switch on Superkikkin. If I remember it right the JBLs and the Linn DS (Klimax and maybe as well Akurate) used together create a ground loop. Would the switch on the Superkikkin solve th...

I reckon there is no battle needed between superkikkin en the mono Sagatun, right?
probably the fair competion to the mono Sagatun´s would be two Superkikkins - one per channel.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

for x vs y it was x for me and I didnt hat the feeling it was close between the two - x2 vs y2 is to my understanding comparing the same setups like x vs y?

I also prefer x2 over y2

its interesting that with this loudspeaker some things are slightly different than usual with respect to positioning.
