  1. Difficult I ordered the hub and the organik in the speakers 

    the hub came about three weeks before Organik and using with Katalyst speakers the difference was extraordinary hearing so much more of the music instruments I hadn’t heard before in pieces i thought I knew very well when the organik boards arrived for the 350 there was a further improvement but not to the same level Listen to the speakers and organik with 2016 Kilmax not the same improvement as with the hub awaiting the return of the latest spec Klimac from Linn to make final evaluation

    Hi all,

    What would you guys upgrade first in my situation. Upgrade to klimax system hub or upgrade 350s to organik exakt from katalyst exakt. I’m having a hard time deciding which way to go first! Both upgrades are available from Linn now so I do not need to wait years for a particular upgrade to be available—- that’s making this decision more complicated for me. Thanks for your input in advance!

  4. This is very interesting Qobuz has a number of streamed Albums that have been mastered using this technique and very fine they sound too

    essentially this technique removes flutter and wow a high signal audio is mixed onto the tape and then Plangent then analyses the variation and corrects for these such as caused by stretching of the tape

    this was done for Greatful dead American beauty 50th anniversary edition much clearer than the previous remaster

    Great question.

    ‘The most obvious difference when you first hear Organik is the quality of the bass compared to Katalyst. Organik digs much deeper, can be heard and felt at much lower volumes, yet does not overshadow the mids and highs at all.

    Overall, there is greater satisfaction of listening to the music at low volumes and still being able to hear most of the music, yet when you turn up the volume above 55, the speakers turn into a powerhouse of sound.

    ‘There is much more detail, such as the tinkling of the piano keys in the higher registers is downright uncanny in its ability to recreate the sounds of a real grand piano as if you are standing right next to the piano, whereas Katalyst is more like a standup piano, from a greater distance away

    ‘Organik sounds more realistic and less digital, compared to Katalyst, which now sounds like it has a bit of a digital edge compared to Organik.

    ‘Drums are extremely convincing, with an ability to discriminate which which piece of drum kit is being hit, when the drum sticks hit the skins or high hats

    Soundstage is bigger and deeper, with  voices and instruments brought forward with nothing recessed in the background 

    ‘The overall package is one of astonishing realism

    Interesting these are the changes I heard with the new hub without Organik

    Assuming you have the Melco S100, have you tried running optical to the switch and then copper to the KDSM? 

    Yes have the switch S100 currently run a optical cable into Melco from the internet then from Melco to NGDSM with a cord cable 

  7. I thought the same tried optical Ethernet  from my Melco switch and the normal Ethernet into the new KDSM and the normal was noticeably better the whole thing gets more and more confusing was hoping to sell off my chord cable so bias towards optical but no such luck

  8. Such great news hope you didn’t have to pay in the end as I believe the problem occurred before the end of warranty 

    unfortunately such a lovely day here if it is the same over your side of the pond you probably want to be out and about
