  1. @snappermike - are these the red drives you mentioned. They seem to be on sale for prime day. Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  2. Is this from the lp12? Or all sources? Could an rca cable be have placed reversed? Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  3. I presently just use my MacBook Pro (2010) for tipping via db poweramp. The 500gb ssd inside is the first copy of my ripped music with a 1tb HDD external hd that keeps a copy I need a NAS soon as the fan from the MacBook is pretty loud. Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  4. A friend mentioned that the disks should be enterprise level (gold) or maybe I’m mistaken. Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  5. Troll since that’s the same NAS I was planning on buying. Not to disrupt from the replies but do let me know what drives you opted for. Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  6. These have been tough times for everybody. Record sales for those who can afford new gear but also sellers who have gotten rid of their toys. I sold one of my motorcycles this year as I realized I can’t ride both of my bikes at the same time. We ended up acquiring 2 used setups this year. Aktiv 242’s and a Full aktiv keilidh Setup (just this month) with age matching source and amplification. Now our issue is have 4 systems in a 1 bedroom and an artist studio. The Aktiv keilidhs are presently in display at the wife’s studio. We never got to hear our keilidhs aktiv so this was an impulse buy as it was as too good a price to ignore. 2 months with the Aktiv 242’s but still waiting for an Adsm so as to truly determine how revealing and good they are. 2021 will surely result in a few sell off’s. Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate 3200/3200/4200, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  7. Did you have to order custome m12 fittings for the isoacouatic gaia 2’s? Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate Amps, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  8. Mu second journey with linn has been more adventurous than my first. I don’t consider any purchases mistakes but rather valuable experience. Someone once told me when I was about to start my first job. Make as many mistakes as you can as quickly as you can. Just don’t repeat your mistakes. He said you’ll only learn from your own mistakes and nobody else’s. These mistakes then turn into experience. In my upgrade journey I have learnt a few basic things. I like akurate better than majik in regard of amps but a Klout really surprised me. Newer does not mean better. It’s good to have a plan. Listen to other people’s experiences but make your own decisions. I’ll have to wait longer than max for the source upgrade to akurate level. That only means I get to listen to the majik level source for a bit longer...... Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate Amps, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  9. Anybody noticed any differences in the mdsm 1 vs 2 vs 3 Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate Amps, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  10. Since you started this thread. I had a question pertaining to the older mdsm. I know you use an mdsm/3 in you second system Max, What i’d love to know is how much better is an mdsm/3 to a 2 or a 1? And what differences have people noticed in sound quality. The intention is to get an Adsm so I ask this so as to either keep my mdsm/1 for a second system or sell it for a later model. I’m aware of the physical upgrades linn did (eg. exakt links hdmi 2.0 etc. ) Mdsm/1 , Unidisk SC, Akurate Amps, Aktiv 242’s (Mk.1). Silvers and k400’s
  11. That’s true and I’ve been hunting for a used Adsm/1 (again because I want to experience Adsm over mdsm first and not straight the katalyst version) but since were on the topic let me ask if maybe an ads+ akurate kontrol is better than an Adsm? My 2nd journey (with linn) started just 3 years back with a pair of mint keilidhs. Then came a Unidisk and I got lucky with a c3200. That’s when I realized I prefer akurate amps to majik amps. So it’s been a short but well enlightened path. I’ve never hated the journey since I get to experiment and try so many different things Mdsm/1 , unidisk SC, akurate amps, aktive 242’s.

  12. Lewis - this thought has been crossing my mind since I moved from aktiv kabers to aktive 242’s My thoughts are that I loved the sound of the kabers but it bothered me that it lacked some bass that I missed. I added just the centrik woofers to play along the kabers which were quite satisfying but not all there. Plus the living room started looking like a store demorroom. With the arrival of the 242’s my biggest complaint was that the majority of my casual listening (Spotify: since you can’t beat their database) sounded not satisfying to me. I’ve tried multiple experiments to try and improve that and it has gotten better. This is just my opinion but I feel as you get higher up the chain every little detail in regard of your gear really matters ( IC’s, source, which channel of amp is better than the other, which amp sounds better on what component) I almost gave up but a dear friend explained to me that less detail is sometimes more enjoyable as it’s not distracting. The more revealing a speaker is the more bad things it will show as it’s easier to pick out what’s wrong than what’s right. I still have few more upgrades to do before I can totally dismiss my present setup so patience is the name of the game. My preference is what’s real and the analog sound, since both may not be possible from the same setup it makes more sense to just have a second system that gives me that analog sound that I remember from my younger ears. I’m very glad you brought this topic up as I’m sure almost everybody has had this question in their head at one time or another. Mdsm/1 , unidisk SC, akurate amps, aktive 242’s. Silvers and k400
  13. When we reached 40 we had already heard 50 initially to decide direction of slider. We re-heard 30/40 & 50 and found 30/50 to both be not as good as 40 hence we didn’t try 35/45. Mdsm/1 , unidisk SC, akurate amps, aktive 242’s. Silvers and k400
  14. Yes walls were on top of the list. I did hear a signinficant difference to my liking between 30% 40% and 50%. We like 40% over 30/50 so decided to leave it there. Instead of using 20-30 seconds of one track for tunedem we actually used 20-30 secs of 4/5 tracks so as to be sure.
  15. I did the same thing as you for walls and they affected the music most once I knew what direction to move the slider in, to fine tune it I started again from zero and went up in increments of 10% and ended up at 40%. The other sliders only made it worse for me. I did not touch the slider for glass as I only have a large window on my rear wall. Enjoying this setting now and will adjust the final slider in a few days if I fee the need. It’s presently at default (80/20) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
