  1. Here is a collection that defies description so just have a look : https://www.pocket-lint.com/apps/news/134579-worst-album-cover-art-of-all-time-you-won-t-believe-number-34
  2. Common sense would suggest that the most dirty/polluted/dust ridden environment a record will ever be in is the record plant that its produced in. As far as I know the records are not cleaned/brushed after production so any debris gets delivered with the record. I am sure the more fastidious on here clean new records before they go on their pristine LP12. Does this help ? Do they actually find crud on brand new records ?
  3. Generally I think they are thought to be expensive, high maintenance, a problem to live with and position, but if you get it right all is forgiven by the sound. Sounds a bit like a LP12 !
  4. Here are a list of the CONS, I have also heard that humidity can cause issues : https://www.liquisearch.com/electrostatic_loudspeaker/disadvantages
  5. Have look at the lists on this page, half of it is "Classic Rock", much does not seemed to have changed since about 1985 : https://theluxereview.com/2021/12/02/qobuz-most-streamed-music-2021/
  6. Rumours by Fleetwood Mac also features consistently on the Qobuz "most streamed" and "most purchased" lists week after week. So its not just vinyl lovers who play it.
  7. Everything I have heard about it points to great value and it does the job. More use will soon show the propriety/homemade liquid solution which is best and which is the most efficient wash/dry routine.
  8. Thanks LINN, the new version is a considerable improvement and credit to them.
  9. I see "Top Trumps" audio posting has morphed into "Top Trumps" car owning on the thread. Will not be long till first member posts pictures of his Full Klimax system and their new Ferrari. Not exactly the spirit of Xmas.
  10. There are a few things that are available on the Qobuz site that Linn App does not do. The latest is the HI-RES only filter on the Qobuz site. I have sent requests previously to Linn about similar problems and have found either nothing happens, or if it does it takes 12 months+ to get it sorted.
  11. I had a quick search on the internet and there were a good quality pair on sale in Spain in mid 2020 and they were only 6.8 k (euros). So perhaps these are not that cheap in reality. Trouble is if only a couple of pairs come up for sale each year prices will be all over the place.
  12. They did not sell, now £10k. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324905138613?ViewItem=&item=324905138613
  13. LINN has always been the same. Often said they have some of the best acoustic engineers in the world and the worst product naming department. This has been pointed out to them over the years, but they plough on regardless. To be fair its a hi-fi thing with many other culprits around.
  14. There is your chance, no bids with less than a day to go. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224698583722?hash=item3451144aaa:g:VDAAAOSwBmRhPLOg
