  1. Stop what exactly? It’s interesting when the mods delete a post. It sure interrupts the flow of conversation!
  2. I spent £6.5k upgrading my LP12 in December 2019. Karousel was released a few weeks later. Karousel should have been ‘free’ to me. Was I p***ed-off, or bitter? NO!! It’s LIFE!
  3. I was after a new door-stop for the lounge. Since the announcement of Organik, my crappy KDS/3 has the perfect heft...
  4. Why, oh why, oh WHY is it all about having the ‘latest and greatest’? The facts are, that the Organik Klimax is going to cost a hell of a lot more than your KDSM, and as @Paulssurround has already stated, the KDSM is an amazing bit of kit. Just focus on what’s really important - the music, and just enjoy what you have.
  5. Found it thanks to Roon, Mick. ‘Down the rabbit-hole’ from The Beatles, to Paul, to John...
  6. Has anyone else heard this? http://www.johnlennon.com/music/albums/double-fantasy-stripped-down/ It’s on Qobuz now in 24/96, and I’ve been completely FLOORED. It just ‘feels’ like John is playing in-front of me in my living-room...
  7. IMO both the current range of Klimax and Akurate range of separates/sources will be axed. In their place will be: Majik DSM/4 - Non-Exakt/Non-Katalyst, Entry Level Linn. Selekt - Exakt & Katalyst, plus M/C capable. NEW Klimax - Exakt & Organik, plus M/C capable. This will give Linn a nice new range of ‘Selekt-style’ boxes for sale
  8. I can’t see the current line of Klimax gear being upgradable to the Organik range. It looks like the current line of Klimax kit may be ‘stuck’ where it is?
  9. I thought as much that it would be based on an FPGA DAC. dCS and Chord already use this technology: https://chordelectronics.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/The-theory-behind-M-Scaler-technology.pdf
  10. So the whole shebang looks like a direct replacement for the current Klimax range? With Exakt-Only System Hub, DSM, and x.1 A/V model?
  11. So, top-end. That would seem to fit with their references to the LP12 and KDS in their initial ‘teaser’.
  12. Combine the KDS streaming platform with a Rob Watts FPGA DAC, and you’ll have a ‘Chicken-Dinner’!
  13. 'I've been listening to 300 vinyl records to get me through lockdown' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-56187737 What a way to go though lockdown!
