delboy replied to GertK's topic in Linn Owners Club and Forum's Hi-Fi Separates and ComponentsI have mine on carpet so, because the spikes are quite short, and after determining the best position, I replaced the underlay beneath them with plywood, then screwed them to the plywood through the rear bracket. I'm not sure of the impact this may have on sound quality, but they are unlikely to fall over.
delboy replied to GertK's topic in Linn Owners Club and Forum's Hi-Fi Separates and ComponentsI had an Majik surround system with active 5140s, an active 5120 centre, and sub. Then I went to the 2015 demo at the Violin Factory and heard the 530s. My takeaway was that the SQ of the 530 system was better than mine and particularly in terms of the soundstage. It had more breath and depth despite the absence of a centre speaker and sub. I went home and swapped 5 boxes, 6 speakers, and a lot of cables, for an Akuarate Exakt DSM, 530s and added an LP12, and I have not regretted it. I've upgraded the LP12, I've thought of exchanging the AEDSM for a Selekt and adding surround speakers, bu

The Selekt System Hub has replaced the Akurate System Hub for the 530 speakers and is now paired with the Akubariks and Doriks
delboy replied to Flatcoat's topic in Linn Owners Club and Forum's Hi-Fi Separates and ComponentsSome years ago I went to the demo of the 5 series in the Violin Factory. I had fully active 242s. The sound of the 530s together with their design and drastic reduction in cable won me over, and I have not regretted it. To me their sound stage is so good it has obviated the need for a centre speaker.
I was told a pair of slaves would cost around £5000
Just heard the master speaker at the launch in Harrods. Sounded and looked good. Slaves can be used as surround speakers in an Exakt system. Other colours may follow. Going back next week to hear them in stereo
