  1. I was pretty much unsatisfied with system until changed MDSM for AEDSM as exakt input. And still consider this as most significant upgrade in my system. So maybe better not to have exakt in MDSM if it is not properly done and does not bring as much as it promises.
  2. Yes, but where is fun in that? Guessing and speculation about products are essential for the health of the ever-hungry audiophile-nut brain.
  3. Yes, this would be the ultimate usability but I am not sure of that. In Linn documentation, it is strictly said: "Supports *ONE or TWO loudspeakers ONLY as digital crossover Each loudspeaker can only be 2-way, 3-way or 4-way" https://docs.linn.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Akurate_Exaktbox-I_(Katalyst) Does anyone who is here on the forum use two exaktbox-i in this kind of configuration?
  4. If this is true for all up to 4-way speakers, it looks like a most cost-effective and compact exakt configuration with a total separation of left and right stereo channels.
  5. Are you sure it can work this way? One exaktbox-i for each speaker?
  6. Does anybody know which are differences between filter versions Extended drive unit modeling 5 and 6 for Akudoriks in Linn web account?
  7. When I upgraded AEBOX to Katalyst the new sound balance was quite different to my ears with a less pronounced high-frequency spectrum. I changed the speaker's location and find the new ideal location for them so I did a new SO profile also. Do not know if this makes any sense technically or I did not have the right ideal position before Katalyst. I found that a much better sounding location for speakers was closer to the wall. As for sound improvement by Katalyst I cannot say that I was blown away by it but also cannot say that I don't like it. The most important Katalyst benefit for me is the ease of listening at any volume level with lots of musical details that are not overemphasized and "in your face" but more laid back and very well incorporated in the overall sound. I suppose this kind of improvement is probably not so easy to notice at first listenings after upgrade when we all expecting fireworks.
  8. Is there any reason why crossover point between tw and stw in Akubariks would be different or one of this is wrong? Akubarik Crossover points 110 Hz, 318 Hz, 3.6 kHz, 9.84 kHz
  9. To answer my own question, yes it can be squeeze in with grill on the ring. Starting from the bottom and slowly progressing from both sides to top. But this is possible on Akudoriks because the hole for the bass driver is cut on the upper end. I do not know if this is possible with other Linn speakers.
  10. Is there some proper/easier way to put back metal grill on Akudorik bass? It is pretty hard to put it back on in this thin slit on the outer adjusting ring when the adjusting ring is in place. I assume it can not be put first on the adjusting ring, and then all together squeeze in the hole?
  11. I do not know if this screwdriver is optimal for all because 0.8 Nm is minimum that can be set and some sets torque below this.
  12. Torque screwdriver set that I ordered came yesterday and I torque 3k array to 0,8 Nm and bass to 1 Nm. 3K array screws were all less than 0,8 and on bass, some of them were less than 1 Nm, and some were more. The positive difference for my ears is pretty much obvious. Contrary to expectation more torque on 3k array did not result in harder sound on higher frequencies but cleaner with less pronounced sibilance and bass also seemed to benefit with less muddiness but most important, the overall sound is much more "all together" with no clearly differentiated spectrums and easier to listen to. So thumbs up for screwing these screws.
  13. I ordered this https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B001JGEADM/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It should be adjustable from 0,8Nm to 5Nm. Will see how it works when it comes. Had also some breakthrough with Akudorik performance. I never really considered Linn suggestion about only one set of loudspeakers in the room as a very important one but removing M109 from room resolved some major problems that I encountered from start. - uneven sound field from left to right (M109 were placed on right side of the room) - the sound coming from left and right speakers instead of forming a sound between speakers. And problems only got worse when trying to play at a louder volume. I tried in and out with M109 for a few days and for my ears this is something very obvious so no surround configuration for me please.
  14. I think the recommendation for open door modeling was floor to ceiling opening but narrowed down till the area is the same. But the problem is that room behind the open door must be modeled also.
