Ian Wilkinson former member of the Linn Forum.

Thank you for admission to the forum.

I’m a long time observer and now first poster.

Although my system is all Linn, I do admire the concept and implementation of Lejonklou products and the Tune Dem for optimisation of equipment for the most musical effect.

Welcome Ian, good to see you made it over from the Linn forum. That sounds like it should be a quite musical system.

Hi Ian

It is jolly darned great to see you you landing somewhere sensible (as in here)! :-) I too am currently an 'all Linn' sort of chap (well, not quite, but mostly) and having only recently heard the dulcet tones from Lejonklou power amp (driving various speakers) I now totally get it - the tunes were a'plentyfold (and then some) - they are just the very job when it comes to the foot tapping department!

I've been here for a while, too, but I have also mostly just been a 'long term observer' (but still a long term lout, of course) and yes, I have - since the 80's, when we also first discovered the merits of single speaker demo rooms in Russ Andrews HiFi - I have been a total tune demo fanatic; to me, nothing else matters other than the amplitude of the foot tapping.

Unfortunately, I will soon be in moderate danger of starting a major 'flame war' with some nefarious bass experiments (I've just ordered a couple of kick drum microphones in an attempt to tweak my sub DSP to better phase align my 345 sub's bass unit excursions to that of my 350A's bass units, using the vectorscope based techniques) but fear not, my good friends, the measurements will only be to provide me with a few potential solutions from where to start listening, then the selection of the best will be done purely by ear (as a sort of a 'philosophical compromise' - finding the middle ground between using only test equipment and using only ears - I plan to use only a single ear for the final selection; also, as many will already be aware, I'm not intelligent enough to simultaneously use both of my ears, of course). :-P

All the best,
Bonkers McBriain
