  1. I replaced my 2018 Klimax hub with the next generation. The surround module was transferred to the new hub. With both hubs I sent video plus audio together via DSM HDMI. I had no lip sync problems with the 2018 hub but do have problems with the current hub.
  2. My DSM is not playing BBC radio stations via Tune In as of today. Anybody else got the same problem ?

  4. Using a Klimax DSM A/V with 530s would be a huge waste of money. The Organik part which effectively retails at £15 k would not be used.
  5. The new hub with my 530s is the biggest upgrade I have ever experienced in over 40 yrs of Linn ownership. I plan to replace the 530s with Akubarik exakt katalyst and keep fingers crossed that Organik will be an option in the future. My guess is that Linn will bring out a new Exakt Organik speaker sometime in the future but It will be expensive.
  6. The price of second hand cars are rising a lot because of a shortage of new cars being built due to the lackof computer chips to put in them.
  7. I had a 2017 hub and went to a ‘2018’ variant (new internals version) in 2020 which I considered to be a major upgrade. On Friday my next generation hub arrived and I consider that to be the biggest upgrade I have experienced in 40 years of Linn ownership. I am also using 530s and have been blown away by the sounds they are creating with the latest hub.
  8. Mine will have the surround module transferred from my 2020 system hub. It was brilliant that iI did not have to buy a surround module for the new hub.
  9. Black system hub ordered 29 March with no indication whenit is likely to arrive. Apparently the black ones take longer because they have to be anodised.
  10. In Linn docs the third generation is referred to as the 2018 variant and I can confirm that it was a huge upgrade from my 2017 hub. I have ordered the next generation hub and by all accounts, it is likely to be another huge upgrade.
  11. I own both 520s and 530s. Overall the 530s are better, but 520s do something very special as well. I have never heard the ASH but do know that replacing my 2017 KDSM hub with the 2018 variant last year was one of the biggest upgrades I have experienced. By the sounds of it, the new hub will be an even bigger upgrade.
  12. Linn have in the main talked about how good Organik is and not ‘raved’ about the hub. It would appear that the hub is a huge improvement in its own right. I hope to get my new hub next week and am very looking forward to it with my 530s.
  13. How old was the system hub that you were comparing to the new hub ? I just hope it was the 2018 variant as I know that is in a different league to the previous variant. I am replacing my 2018 variant hub with the NG hub which I have on order and am hoping that it will be a magnitude better than my 2020 hub.
  14. I have the new hub on order to replace my 8 mth old hub (2018 variant). That hub replaced a 2017 hub and it was one of the biggest upgrades I have experienced. I would expect the new hub to be a big upgrade compared to a pre 2018 hub. But how much better will it be compared to the 2018 variant hub I am using at present ? I hope to find out soon !
  15. At present Lejonklou are not supplying products to the UK because of problems caused by Brexit !
  16. I ordered the new hub 3 days after the Linn cast presentation. I spoke to Linn yesterday about a possible delivery date. They could not give any indication of a date as they have been inundated with orders.

  18. I have very thick carpet so the supplied spikes are pretty useless so I bought longer spikes from Linn which helped.
  19. I totally agee - they are very unstable on the spikes. My dogs were playing with a builder and knocked one over which cracked the fireplace hearth but no damage to the speaker.
  20. A 7 mth old hub (2018 variant and for sale) which replaced a 2017 hub. The former was one of the biggest upgrades I have experienced.
  21. My experience is that you only get to know how good a product is until you get it home. I totally rely on my dealers recommendation who has looked after my system for 30 years and I have never had bad advice from him. I ordered the new hub on Monday which was a no brainer with the deal I was offered.
  22. 520s and 530s are the only speakers that Linn sell that were developed purely for Exakt. Maybe the Organik DAC will be offered as an upgrade in the future but I am not holding my breath. All I know is that both my 520s and 530s sound brilliant without Katalyst. Another advantage that as they have fabric covers, it is impossible to mark them.
