  1. The KDSM Mk3(i.e. previous version) is and will remain a great piece of kit so its second had value is set to soar in view of the price of the new one.
  2. I hope you're right, when I looked for the Klimax DSM upgrade page on the Linn website it no longer existed.
  3. One of the most positive reasons for investing in expensive Linn equipment was their uprade policy which allowed early investors to keep their system up to current spec by replacing the internal electronics. The policy even extended to additional machining of the casework if required. With the release of the new Klimax DSM which has the visual appeal of a breeze block the upgrade policy seems to have been broken presenting existing customers with a considerable step up in investment to keep up to date?
  4. I bought some of this, seems pretty pure: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07D4N472Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. Comfort should be top of the list otherwise you won't want to wear them!
  6. True but it's a pretty good DAC, streamer and headphone amp as well.

    AC Panel Meter

    It's a moving coil meter, you need to be absolutely sure what the coil sensitivity is before connecting it to anything. Just because the scale reads up to 300V AC doesn't necessarily mean that is what is needed to drive it.
  8. Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt DAC and Headphone Amplifier By Alex Colburn Introduction: Four weeks into the COVID-19 lockdown I’m working from home and spending a lot of time sat in front of a computer screen in the study. Distractions are only too frequent; noises and voices filter through from inside and outside disturbing concentration and leading to long periods of gazing out of the window. Why is there so much activity, there’s supposed to be a lockdown in progress? I decided to try and lock out (no pun intended) the disturbances and donned a pair of headph
  9. The components causing the PCB burn look like zener diodes to me, probably some kind of shunt regulator for the HV rails.
  10. Leema Acoustics Tucana II Anniversary Edition By Alex Colburn Introduction: Leema Acoustics is a UK based manufacturer of high-performance audio equipment founded in 1998 by two ex-BBC sound engineers, Lee Taylor and Mallory Nicholls. Leema originally concentrated on loudspeaker design and manufacture culminating in their first product, the Xen micro monitor which was originally only available to the professional market. Following the success of the Xen speaker, Leema decided to expand into the audio electronics market and launched the Tucana integrated amplifier in 2006 to
  11. The logo is Plessey and 7.1uF is still within spec so I wouldn't worry about it.
  12. The output impedance of the preamp you quote is way too high, are you sure this is correct? Also the input sensitivity should be in mV rather than mA.
  13. Ditto! Great caps been very pleased with them.
