  1. @ruben You can add a URL of a radio stream to your Tunein account. In the TuneIn App, go to "My Library" and then to the "Custom URL" field. There You can add a URL. You can't add a URL in the browser version of TuneIn. The stream can be selected after a few minutes in the Internet radio overview of your DSM. In between, restart Kazoo once. The stations added via Custom URL appear at the end of the overview and do not have the original logo of the station.
  2. The adjustments grolgen made to the Excel spreadsheet developed by entdgc are the solution to the display problem! The generated Excel graphs now look exactly like the ones in Konfig. (I have checked this on my SOv2 KomriFilters reimported in Konfig). A big thank you for this to grolgen, who added the correct function to the Excel spreadsheet with great mathematical understanding. All those who use SOv2 and always wanted to know what the result of the calculations in the cloud is, now get with the modified Excel file 1. all values of the filtering and 2. an exact picture of the filter curve as they are used to from SOv1.
  3. Before March 2001, Ninka & Katan treble units had moulded ABS (plastic) face-plates (SPKR 038/1), thereafter, the face plates were changed to die-cast metal (SPKR 038/2). Sound improvement.
  4. @ Baba Yaga Sure, these are SOv2 values. In the case shown with the slider value 55%. When you do SOv2 optimisations, the calculation is done in the Linn Cloud and the result is transferred to the DSM. If one has several optimisation results, these can be selected via the account. How does the currently selected optimisation get into the UserLog.txt ? One must start Konfig once, select the DSM and then close it again, then all current SO setting values of the DSM are written into the UserLog.txt file. The individual SOv1 optimisations are stored on WIN10 computers in the folder C:\Users\Start\AppData\Roaming\Linn\Konfig\OptimisationSettings as xml files. With an editor that leaves no traces (e.g.: Notepad++) you can open a file matching the speaker and now enter the results of the SOv2 calculation at the appropriate places (including the Time of Flight Optimisation at Exakt). This is only something for computer affine users. After that you have to open Konfig and call the changed file in Spaceoptimisation and apply it. Now you could even make small changes as usual in Konfig, but only with caution! The results of SOv2 can hardly be topped.
  5. Feedback on the Speaker Filters Excel sheet: The macro finds the SO2 values of the two Exaktboxes in UserLog.txt. I have entered the SOv2 Optimisation values in an xml file from Konfig for comparison. Even if Konfig uses the logarithmic representation for the frequencies (x-axis), so that the notches are not directly below each other, the representation of the total curve seems to be calculated differently.

  6. Congratulations to the Space Commander from across the Atlantic from the many Linn fans you have supported in so many ways. Keep it up! Peter
  7. I had contacted the helpline 2 days ago about this question. Here is the answer: “I have spoken to an engineer who has suggested that you upgrade to the new Klimax DSM System Hub firstly and then Organik for the Klimax Exaktboxes. The more stable clock on the Klimax DSM System Hub will make a difference and bring the music in the correct timings, then the Organik Exaktbox will bring this up a step further.”
  8. @zephyr I saw in your Wigwam-Info that you modified the Tri-Aktive Ninkas with an OW1 tweeter from Hiquphon. This is about 1 db louder than the original Ninka tweeter Linn SPKR 038/2. If you have not already done so, you should first reduce the volume of the tweeter on the treble card by 1 db and then listen again. Peter

  10. On the registration page for the LinnCast launch event, there is already a small hint of what the new streamer will look like. In the small, somewhat blurred section of the picture, you can guess the rotary knob on the left, the surface is dark with a line structure. The emphasis on lines in the overall design has already been seen in Selekt and Majik DSM/4.
  11. I ran a pair of "Killer Keltiks" until 2019. My values were: Hiquphon Tweeter: 0.6 Nm Seas Middriver: 0.85 Nm Bass (both): 1.1 Nm Peter
  12. I'm not sure Ivor ever entered the Scottish castle shown by Ben Webster. The "Linn Castle" in Krefeld (a moated castle from the 12th century) that Johannes mentioned was indeed visited by Ivor. I think it was in 1991 when a dealer conference was held there at which - if I remember correctly - the Kairn preamplifier and the first Trampolin base board were introduced. Ivors was in a good mood and his talk was very entertaining and informative. At a late hour (and a few beers later), he was also able to reveal which projects were currently being worked on in Glasgow (Klout, Kremlin Tuner and Keltik). I think he had felt comfortable at little "Linn Castle".
  13. The potentiometer on the chakra card is used to set the amount of low frequency (bass extension). The maximum of deep bass is reached in position 7. In positions 6, 5, 4, etc. the amount of deep bass is gradually reduced. If the listening room is large, I would start with position 7 and listen for a while and search for the best place for the Keltiks. If the sound is too oppressive, you can switch to position 6 and so on. From my experience with the Keltik, I can say that I have achieved the most musical results in position 7. The controls on the power amplifiers determine the volume of the individual channels. Position 3 is the normal (neutral) position. Pos. 4 makes the channel 1 dB louder, pos. 2 then 1 db softer, etc. It is advisable to select position 3 for all channels. The 1 db increments are usually too coarse in practice. From 2006 onwards, the 8 chakra cards for the Keltiks were also supplied with 2 SPKR 038/2 tweeters, which match in volume. They are 1 db quieter than the SKPR 015/n. If this tweeter is used with the chakra cards, I would reduce the tweeter channel by 1 db (set it to position 2). Peter
  14. I have just downloaded version 4.13.74 for Android from the Playstore. Tunein and Quobuz are available again via Kazoo.
  15. In the Linn Account there is the possibility to import an optimisation from SOv1. But the other way round, only the possibility to import from SOv2 should be added to Konfig (Create from system). Then you would have the visual representation of SOv2 and the possibility (if needed) to make small changes. At the moment such an import of a SOv2 result in SO v1 (including the Time of Flight results in Exakt) is only possible via small detours (Export and import of data). Therefore this way is rather something for computer affine space optimizers.
