Having switched today a few times between 53.125 and 56.173, I must say that I find 53 more engaging. My listening is not the best, as I have a cold, but somehow I feel as if some information is missing on the 56 beta. Especially while listening to some classic music, I thought the brass instruments sounded absent. Acoustic guitar on some other albums sounded weird too.
But as I said this may all be related to the cold, so the experience has to be repeated.

No cold here, but I agree that 53.125 is more engaging than 56.173 to us (better half here prefers 53 too ;)
Everything sounds 'samey' to me with 56 - it's all very pleasant, but there's less musical difference between songs. 53 is more engaging & informative, with each song being more individual & in touch with the musicians. 56 is musical reproduction whereas 53 is music (to my ears)

I only have for Mk.2 DS - I believe you need 53.125 for DS Mk.1 (KlimaxDsMk1_4.53.125.zip)

For me, it’s still 53.125. I haven’t tried every recent release, but those that I have were not as musical. I also changed to a later release 3 or 4 months ago whilst changing other things at the same time. This was a big mistake! I forgot I changed the firmware and spent a month checking everything else out to find out why my system was annoying me so much!

I would be intrigued by your thoughts on the latest, sounds good on ds3

Latest official or Beta?

Looks like latest official, as when I went up yesterday there were no beta versions available.

EDIT: I’ve listened to the firmwares again and still prefer 4.53.125

(Great call, anthony. I’ve been listening this morning and agree that it’s a good one. I haven’t heard every single final and beta release but it’s got to be one of the best firmwares released for the KDS, if not the very best..)

I also like the 4.63.223 the most but couldnt try the 4.53.125 for my ADS/1 as it was not officially available (only 4.54.135)

Hi,

Did you try the 4.66.250 ?

I think it's a good one.

My and Paolo have tried most of beta and non beta releases after 52.119.

In our opinion, for now, nothing is better than 52.119.

66.xxx betas are good but in comparision, despite a nice flow, lacking in pace and timing precision.

Test was made with KDS3.

I’ve just tried 52.119 and tbh it didn’t work too well for me. I had been using 63.223 for a while, but have now returned to my favourite 53.125.

I made a quick test an the result in my configuration is :

1/ 4.53.125
2/ 4.52.119
3/ 4.66.250 (for Urika 2)

I didn't take time to test the 4.66.254.

I am waiting for a firmware like 4.53.125 (at least) compatible with Urika 2.

Now that Linn forums is closed perhaps they wil have time to listen their firmware...
