  1. With my Keith Monks very dirty records sound noisy after the first cleaning cycle because some the dirt has loosened in the groove. After one or two additional cleaning cycles the record should be clean.
  2. We should also keep in mind, that in these days some dealer open the window to let some (cold !) fresh air in the listening room before starting the session. Some speaker react very extreme on theses different temperatures inside and outside the box.
  3. Are you talking about Komris? They are already partly active. Do you say, you bought the Komris without the internal passive crossover? Maybe you can ask the seller if he/she have it still in stock.
  4. I would NOT recommend mixing Solos and Twins. Regarding musicality one pair of Solos will be better. Some people in another forum say that multi-amping and multi-wiring is less musical. I‘m not in this team and drive my Komris with quadwiring and two Solos per Komri.
  5. I think the difference between Organik and Katalyst is larger than between Katalyst and Pre-Katalyst. And beside the DAC-architecture you get a better preamplifier. I had the chance to listen to KDSM/3 Audio at home for a few days. Forst impression: very disappointing. Why? It needs a very long time (I guess at least two weaks) for burning in. At the end I decided not to buy the KDSM/3. But that‘s a different story.
  6. As mentioned above these were the official values from Linn. Because of a possible damage Linn is not providing these values anymore. For the Bass you can go a little bit lower (e. g. 3,5 Nm). The screws for the upper Bass are the most „dangerous“ ones. Keep in mind that the value 3,0 Nm is only for the inner screws. The outer screws should be 2,1 Nm.
  7. @HH2010: can confirm all but not the „powerigel“. I use the cheaper standard musicline. We ask for a small batch (around 50) of these with Linn cables. Powerigel: the older versions were „ok“, the newer versions are a no go (from my point of view). Older Powerigel on the Justin (small TimeTable) is a nice improvement.
  8. @Moomintroll: thanks, yes, I‘ll wait. If not provided till weekend I‘ll ask Simon. Didn‘t find anything about Update process on the website.
  9. @Moomintroll: thanks. I’ve it installed on Windows. Depending on settings it normally shows updates in the „About/Show updates“ menu. But just now it shows:
  10. is it installed automatically like minor updates or does it have to be installed manually?
  11. Long bright red light may indicate, that the belt is installed in the wrong direction. It‘s worth to check. When belt is installed correctly there should no big difference between Radikal I and Radikal II.
  12. There are three steps: 1) listen! 2) check if you here differences 3) decide which one is better in the long run Some people startet even not with step 1) When the conclusion at the end of step 2) is: no differences, it‘s ok. These people can save a lot of money. But I can also understand people who will not start with step 1) because they think it‘s all snake oil and there can’t be a difference. But these people shouldn’t judge about people who want to go through the three steps.
  13. Even if the impact of power cables on different parts of your system is different, I recommend to use the same kind of cable in the chain. Not soundwise but it plays more harmonic.
  14. Everyone made his own experience. There are also people who think it‘s all snake-oil.
  15. To marking more complex: from 10 identical Longwells one sounded better than the other nine.
  16. Yes. But maybe there are newer Linn cables available. It may also differ from country to country.
  17. I think we can agree that - there are difference between „Linn“!power cables - it‘s worth to try different cables in their own system. Not to forget, that also power cables need some time to burn-in.
  18. I owned both and replaced them by the Longwell above. I‘‘m with Linn (and their cables since 1986).
  19. Not in my system. And all of my Linn friends confirmed my/our finding. There is also a discussion in the Lejonklou Forum, which came to newly the same result. What Linn cables/plugs do you prefer?
  20. Maybe my version is in the TestFlight … Edit: my version is in the TestFlight; last offical,version in AppStore is 4.13.83
