  1. Hello CJ1045, thank you for the prompt help. does digital processing mean that the analog phono signal passes an A/D processing unit and then it is converted back to analog? best regards, Thomas
  2. Hello, I have a Majik DS-I (DSM) with: volume control set to on and Power Amplifier set to off I want to connect it to an external Power Amplifier with the ‚Pre Out’ RCA The volume Control of the DS-I works fine with digital Sources. But if I use the built in Phono Stage, the Volume is set to 80 and can‘t be changed. Did I miss any option to set to get this work, or is the Volume Control to RCA just not supported for Phono Input? Will this be impossible with an Akurate DSM (without an Exact Version) too? best regards, Thomas
  3. Hello CJ1045, thanks for the workaround. Since I like the handling plus the look and feel of compact disks, I now prefer to use the handset for VC with roon too. A volume setting of 80 would be much too loud for my sensitive transmission line speakers. best regards, Thomas
  4. Hello MickC, Thank you, Yes now this looks realy like an unsuported Feature and not an Bug. Perhaps Linn product management or development reads this and start work together with roon for an solution. I give up to solve this. best regards, Thomas
  5. Hello CJ1045, thanks for your reply, its a good hint, but I didn‘t find any hint in the documentation that the RS232 VC feature has gone: https://docs.linn.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Konfig_Manual Notes Toslink/SPDIF outputs are NOT Volume controlled Output Attenuation has NO effect on the Exakt output Setting an RS232 preamp connection automatically sets Internal Volume Control to Off as the preamp will be used instead Akurate Kontrol/1: Room name (Devices tab) must match the corresponding Room name of your Linn DS/DSM. Source name should match the Linn DS/DSM device name (similar to RS232 setup) Marking a source invisible does not disable it, but simply hides it from control points The Source Transformer is to provide galvanic isolation for sources with direct coupling. If you are using a source that already has an audio transformer, such as a URIKA XLR output, this should be disabled. https://docs.linn.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Beta:DsDavaar56:Release_Notes Davaar 56 Build 177 (4.56.177) Released on 01 Jun 2017 Fixed defect #5361: Proxy preamp connection causes DS to lockup on boot. Previous fix for this prevented deadlock, but could leave device in unknown state when taken out of standby. Address that, and propagate fix to remaining RS232 preamp proxies. best regards, Thomas

  7. Hello, I‘ve got a Linn Majik DS/1 which is connected to a Linn Classic Musik 08 (Dynamic) via Aux1 and RS232 As Streaming Software I use Roon (lifetime license) On the MDS/1 I‘ve set the RS232 Preamp Port to 1 and the Preamp to Classik Music. I turned off the internal digital Volume Control of the MDS/1 since I want to use the classic music volume Control I hoped that this Configuration would pass through the Roon Volume Control. But it doesn’t work, Roon Volume control is just grayed out. If I use Kinsky as Control App then I can do with it the volume Control of the Classic Musik with the same Hardware setup. I’m not sure if it is a missing Feature of Linn to tell Roon about the VolumeControl or if Roon just doesn’t take care about the non digital Volume Control. Perhaps some one knows in more detail where the Problem is located and if is a missing Feature where I can place the Feature request. best regards, Thomas
  8. hello Rayymondo, yes I‘ve turned off the internal digital Volume Control of the ds and I‘m using the classic music as preamp and power amp. - This setup works with kinsky but not with roon. With kinsky Control app i can use the volume Control (connected to the ds) and see the changing Volume Level on the Display of the Pre (classic music) Thanks for the suggestion to move to the correct forum section. best regards Thomas
  9. Hi, I‘ve now found that this is not a Linn RS232 Setup problem, because if I use the old Linn kinsky control App for the ds the volume Control is transmitted to the preamp even if the internal (unwanted) digital volume Control within the ds is set to off. I’m not sure if it is a missing Feature of Linn to tell Roon about the VolumeControl or if Roon just doesn’t take care about the non digital Volume Control. Perhaps some one knows in more detail where the Problem is located and where to place the Feature request. best regards, Thomas
  10. hello newlash09, thank you for your reply, yes roon can do the volumecontroll if the Linn device supports it. In another room iv‘e got an Majik DSM (strammer and preamp in one Box) where the roon volume control works perfect. In this room I‘ve got a 2 Component Linn Konfig where I want the volume Control of the preamp and not the digital Volume Control of the streamer. - and this special configuration makes the problem. And I don’t know if this is just a knowledge problem or a missing feature on linn or on the roon site. best regards, Thomas
