  1. I forgot to mention I have the Internal Amplifier set to on and the Pre Out set on, so is the level just controlled by the volume ? Steve
  2. Hi HansBertil, Thanks for the reply, yes I did check the PRE OUT terminals in Konfig but it only gives two options 1 Pre out 2 Power in ? I may be missing something but can see no adjustment for Pre out ? Steve
  3. Hi All, Just a quick question, can the preamp output on a Majik DSM 3 be adjusted to increase or decrease the signal ? Steve
  4. Hi, I realize this is an old thread, I had similar problem with a virgin V6 box / Sony Bravia / using QED hdmi cables connected to the ARC socket, it would play for a day through the DSM which gave great images and sound, then could not play the selected stations until a full reboot, spoke to Linn Virgin and Sony but never had an answer, I ended up using a Toslink cable from the DSM to the TV to get good sound quality, shame as images were great through the DSM hdmi any other advice welcome. Steve
  5. Hi, I had this problem, I spoke to Linn help and the advice was to change batteries, that worked so it must be the voltage that causes the button issue. Steve
  6. Hi All, I have not had a demo with the Akurate yet but have obtained a Linn Klout and tri wired the 6 channels to my ATC SCM40's, in comparison to my Majik 4100 my opinion is it has a firmer bass, clear mid range, and similar highs, it is built like a tank and I am surprised it is so good at 20 years old ! any thoughts ? Steve
  7. Hi All, Thanks for the very useful replies, I like the sound I'm getting with the Majik 4100/ATC combo but my thoughts were am I getting the best out of the SCM40;s given the limited power, I don't always play at high volume so I thought an amplifier that meets ATC's recommended output would be worth checking out, just for the record I did have a week using a ATC P1 amplifier and although the sound was clean and the bass nicely controlled I did not feel it was as musical as my Linn sound, my kit is connected via QED Quinex silver spiral interconnects and QED X Tube XT400 speaker cables, I will arrange a demo to compare an Akurate 4200 with a Klimax Twin feeding the SCM40's and will report back. Steve
  8. Hi All, I currently use a Linn Majik DSM 3/ Majik 4100 Power Amp/ Roksan K3 cd player, I have just purchased a pair of ATC SCM40 Passive Speakers which are bi amped via the 4 channels, the Majik can drive the ATC's well and I am pleased with the improvement over my Pro Ac Studio 140 but the recommended power is 75 watts into 8 ohms minimum so my question is what could I expect if I upgraded the 4100 to an Akurate 4200 ? Any opinion welcome Steve
  9. Still for sale but I was advised to move the post as it was in the wrong section !
  10. I have sent a message to remove as well, thanks guys.
  11. Yep, you could be right, the first time I posted on this, can I delete it ? Steve
  12. Hi All, Any one out there with Pro Ac Studio 140 Speakers ? I have two custom made black granite plinths, they replace the existing wooden ones, the large bass port is cut out and they have 4 x spike threads and are 30 mm thick, they not only make the speaker very stable, but the thing is the sound quality is taken to another level, the bass is deeper and controlled, the mid range and highs are all much improved, I have now changed my speakers and the plinths are available at £80.00 the pair, this will be a great step up on a already great sound, let me know if anyone is interested, location West Sussex Steve
  13. Hi All, just in case anyone looks at this I uninstalled Kazoo and re installed then updated my library and all is in the correct order now, thanks for looking. Steve
  14. Hi All, Sorry for the late reply, the flac files are stored in album folders with jPeg art ripped on DB poweramp, they are on my Qnap Nas hard drives, so I can access them from Laptop, iPhone, and desktop, I use Kazoo mostly but sometimes Asset, I just noticed however that on my desktop Kazoo shows the tracks in the right track order so it is only on the Laptop that Kazoo is showing tracks in alphabetical order ?
