Nice system you've put together. Sounds like you're doing things in a very cost effective way.

Very nice setup there. If you upgrade the amplification at some point it will really release a lot more from those sources and speakers.

Yes TMV, get yourself a Tundra amp in your system, and you will not be able to go to bed at night....
Go for it,

Thanks for the suggestions, upgraded amp would definitely improve the system. But the 05 is actually not too bad so upgrading the sources could still be the most cost effective. Or what do you think?

Larger speakers would also be fun, if only my neighbours....

Only heard the 05 very briefly so can't comment on that. Lingo 2 would be nice though.

Sagatun&Tundra would of course kill the 05 so that would be nice. Very nice!

Lingo 2 is a good advise and not too expensive, would love a Radikal but it´s so ******* expensive.

Updated with a Tundra 2. T2 improves everything. Everything! (Anything else would be strange since I changed from internal PA in my Movie)

On Billie Holidays My Man (MS-515) she sings like never before and the way the piano and her voice interacts is really great. Feels like I´m in the club.
Outside World on 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 by Midnight Oil is so dark and powerful and even at low level the energy is there when Only the Strong starts. Normally I have to play really loud, not anymore.
The rhythms on Eno's Before and after Science have never been so easy to follow.
Rod Stewart's version You keep me hanging on is really decadent. (I do actually love this song...)
On Shame DM sing "Don't you ever get the feeling that something isn't right". No, not anymore.

I really like the improvements in the energy of the music the T2 brings. Bass is much better, all the musical details are there and they work together.

I´m happy! (At least when I play happy music...)

So happy to read this, TMV! Made my evening.

Also got inspired by the mix of music you mention.

A few upgrades.

Lingo 1 -> 3
A very nice upgrade for the money. Easier to follow the music, rhythm and bass.

Kinki 2 -> Slipsik 7
Lovely upgrade! Improves everything and connects you to the music.

Linn Classik Movie 05/D + Tundra 2 -> Boazu 1
Such a good amp! Only upgrade option is Mono, and that is not an option :)
The only thing I miss is to control volume with an app (switching sources does already work fine...)

Linn Majik 109 -> Klångedang T1 (SHW)
Just love them!

Current System:
Vinyl: LP12 (old), Cirkus, Kore, Akito 2B, Lingo 3, Adikt, T-kabel (silver), Slipsik 7.
Digital: KRDS/0, Netgear switch/QNAP NAS.
Amp: Boazu 1
Speakers: Klångedang T1 (SHW)
To me this is good balance between understanding the music and a smooth sound.

That's quite a nice list of upgrades there. (Is that supposed to be Gaio 2 to Slipsik 7?) I'm sure the current system provides much musical enjoyment.

The first post is a bit confusing as it lists all the gear you have now. It might be good to list the original system that you previously posted there, with the edit for the latest version below it, so all can see the changes. I'd also mention the update in the first post listing the complete system in your more recent post.

OK, good proposal! I have now updated the first post.

I did upgrade from Kinki 2 -> Slipsik 7. I was thinking of upgrading to a Gaio and not Slipsik because I had a feeling that Slipsik had a bit analytical HiFi sound. However, with Slipsik 7 there is only music. For sure a lot of information but in a way that connects me to the artists.

Upgraded my digital source from KRDS/0 to Thinker Board S, Gigaport HD+ DAC and Volumio SW

Much better musical understanding and more information, but the KRDS/0 has a more smooth sound.
An AMAZING upgrade for the money, I´m very happy with my "mini HAKAI".

:D

I am definitely not a computer guy, and I don't understand 90% of what's being said on the HAKAI thread. I've been looking at the Volumio Primo, which seems similar to your digital source. Is that more or less correct? Any thoughts about the Primo?

Hello Billy, the Primo uses the same Thinker Board S as I am but with another integrated DAC. I have no idea how it compare to Thinker Board S and Gigaport HD+ DAC. More Asus Tinker Board discussions here: https://www.lejonklou.com/forum/viewtop ... 9&start=25

I have made some major upgrade to my LP12, now any record I play is fantastic!
LP12 ~83 -> fluted walnut ~93
Cirkus -> Karousel
Lingo 3 -> ARadikal

I have also upgraded Klångedang T1 from external SHW filter to Revision 6. SHW had it´s charm but R6 is so much better.

With Lejonklou Slipsik and Boazu in between, this system delivers so much music! AND IT ROCKS! :D
