  1. Forget the iPad, get a PC, or Mac, or chromebook. Maybe on loan for a couple of days. Use a mouse and a laser for the measurements and set up V2. Happy times
  2. Well it’s my humble opinion that the Linn designteam should be rewarded the Nobel prize for hifi and world peace with their SO, being it V1 or V2, rather then sacking them. You need to couple your streamer with a Linn account, this Linn account is accessible via any browser and any platform, in the Linn account you then make the complete set for SOv2. U use: Konfig in a PC or Mac for software updates in the hardware such as: streamers, exaktbox, and Kazoo updates for an optional NAS and SOv1 Linn app as controlpoint for you streamer, selecting source, music etc. Linn Account for settings on the streamer and configuring SOv2 Linn Kazoo for your NAS, if you are using it. In essence you only need 2, Konfig to keep updated an the control point. The rest is optional. I would check out the Linn account and Manual first.
  3. Sounds a little bit as an antiklimax TBTH. One could say that you need more time to adjust to Katalyst and really appreciatie, burn in etc. I can’t say what my point on this would be though. You had a lot of shifts and changes in the system over the time. Maybe hard to see the forrest through the trees at this point. Although it’s nice to gain the experience with the gear.
  4. My best guess would be, admittedly without reading the article, that 10-20 years from now is a pretty long horizon in the digital age an IoT. I’m not a big fan of streaming services, there is a always a gap or something in each or the others library. I like my cheapish Spotify for checking out new music and for on the go. Somehow I listened to -Nils Lofgren- “Keith don’t go” during a demo in shop and for the sake of reference I played it at home. I Always disrespectfully disregards the track because it’s beaten to death in the audiophile world, yes call me crazy. Anyhow just as I started to like it, the album is no longer available on Spotify. In had the same thing whit some Grace Jones some time ago. So as these first world problems still make me grind my teeth, I’m more than happy to buy the CD or LP just for owning a copy which is mine and I can play it directly or rip it as much as I want and it has the booklet. Also, I’m not really sure if these services, especially the hifi ones are really profitable (read there to stay) in the long run.
  5. @zee9 maybe a switch to Lejonklou amps if you decide on staying passive? I’ve never heard them but if I’m not mistaken popular opinion is that they at least match Linn charakter and performance.
  6. Refurb? How about that? I thought yours where pretty decent.
  7. Is this exaktfilter compatible with SOv2 if not, things can have a different effect when u switch to Konfig based SOv1. Thinking u use SOv2 as we speak.
  8. Well Linn knows best so obviously the Keltik is better then the Naim. but don’t take my word for it.. More seriously, quite some exakted Keltiks around here including my own, but in total honesty never compared. However with my 8 channel AEBi everything sounds really solid and well together, seamless and the whole shows starts from 20Hz and up. I Love that bass.
  9. Even better views then the green which is being blocked by the tv, I’m quite curious. My view is not as green but quite good, although I have look out at a tower cranedriver for the past 2 years.
  10. @zee9 you could start a vintage Linn museum with all that kit on dem. Could you be more specific about which tweeter you like best and why?
  11. I’ve red that the spikes also have the function of forcing the load (weight) of the speakers to a really small surface (spikes) instead of spreading the weight over the complete foot. This could mean the speaker is better connected to the floor, since the force is higher in the spikes. m2c
  12. Even better, however which powercord would be best for the HAVC installation?
  13. I see a gap on Linn’s line up: Klimatebox, connected via exakt, an automated SO coupled barometer. Available als Selekt cartridge or in a Klimax casing. And after the first ones hit the homes the lot can debate which position in the room is most beneficial, which powercord is best for it or weather* it would benefit from Ikea hacks.
  14. They have, but try to melt, form and mill it. It takes quite some energy and expertise on a larger scale to be economical.
