  1. Thats what I did... although expect there is still the potential for some error in this method
  2. Same problem here in the UK, Kazoo won't load, yet plays fine on Sonos...
  3. I've just had to delay the next bicycle upgrade because of an Amp/Karousel upgrade that I just could resist
  4. Ness Audio... early 80s... my first encounter of Linn products too in the form of LP12/Naim/Isobariks
  5. Brilliant, trips like that are always awesome especially when you meet other like minded nutters along the way . You'll have to go back for the Stelvio sometime, I had a right laugh thrashing my little Audi TT up and down it last year...
  6. Great Cars and glad to hear you treat it appropriately! Bet its a hoot to drive
  7. Same experience here, simple quick no nonsense good ole American customer service... got mine in 5 days!
  8. Similar story for me, I was about 13 or 14 (circa '81/82) my pal and I wandered into the new hifi shop in Inverness and heard an LP12/Naim/Isobarik set-up. I was blown away, never heard anything like it. I wanted to own an LP12 from that day and finally got one earlier this year (!) and very frustratingly only a couple of months before Karousel . My first proper system was a Dual 505, NAD 3020 and KEF Chorale 3s. CDs took over and the Dual was sold () and it has been evolving ever since. Currently I've got ADSM/3, LK140 (x3) and Aktiv Ninkas alongside the LP12. This week I changed all my ethernet cables to Blue Jeans Cables and very pleasantly surprised with the improvement. I fear the LKs are getting a bit tired, one has developed an audible hum (albeit not through the speakers) so I'm trying to figure out what to do about it... one option is revert to passive with a used Klimax Twin or a new Lejonklou Tundra, I'm a little doubtful about reverting to passive though. I guess I'm going to try some stuff and use my ears. Or do I just get the LKs serviced and live with them for a while yet, decisions decisions...
  9. My ex used to say that she sometimes wished that she'd catch me looking at proper porn and not just pictures of amplifiers, speakers or bicycles!
  10. Completely agree, a great evening's chat, Jon's a top Chap! It was great to put a face to the name Mike (and Eriku), you're always welcome to in Lichfield to break the journey... once we're allowed to do that sort of thing again
