  1. Well I got the deal done with the guy on the older Linn system. It includes a Majik-1, a Mimik, a pair of Keilidh's, and a full set of Linn cables, both interconnects (analogue) and speakers (K400). I have spent some time cleaning the Majik and Mimik, inside and out. I replaced the dust covers on the Keilidh's, and repainted the exterior cabinets. I am trying to figure out if I can get them to fit, both acoustically and aesthetically, in my small room. Then I can hook up by Mac Mini to use as my music server and streamer. I have not yet tested to see if the DAC in the Mimik or the external Schiit Modi would produce better sound for the CD's. The Schiit will be used for the Mini regardless.
  2. yes to the mesh covers on the hi freq. The dust covers were all damaged on the mid-bass, so I replaced them. I realize they are not Linn style covers, but they serve the purpose.
  3. I removed the shorting pin and hit the posts with a little sandpaper and reinstalled. Phono works great now. True Black stain arrived yesterday so now to get to work on the cabinets.
  4. Dust covers all replaced. Now to refinish the cabinet Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I picked up a pair of Keilidh's for cheap. One of the speaker cones has a slight tear. They sound still sound good, but would like to replace it. What should I expect to pay for new/used driver? I have seen one on eBay for $48 plus shipping. Is this a fair price? Thx
  6. I need to replace the dust covers on the Keilidh's also. Got some coming in the next few days. Getting everything all cleaned up.
  7. no, phono amp link was there. but there are other functions that can be controlled by using links on other parts of the board.
  8. no, see link https://www.manualslib.com/manual/816598/Linn-Majik.html?page=8#manual
  9. Thx for that info. As of now I am not getting the phono inputs to work. I will have to pull the cover and see what I can see. I spent the day cleaning and testing and this is the only issue I have found. I do need to replace the dust covers on the speakers though, and I had to resolver a couple of the speaker plugs as I was getting some noise when I moved the speaker cable. I will also do a little cleaning of the Keilidhs and touch up with some new black ash stain.
  10. What all needs to be done to go aktiv with a Majik-1 integrated amp and a pair of Keilidh's, and what would be approx cost? Thx
  11. Well I finally got this all ironed out and drove down to Phx (150 miles each way) and picked this stuff up. I haven't had a chance to clean any of it up yet, but other than a little wear it looks good. As mentioned, Majik integrated amp with MM Phono card, Mimik CD drive, and the Keilidh speakers with bases in black ash. As a plus it came with the remote, All Linn cables (2 pair -1 meter RCA) and a set of K400 speaker cables (didn't measure but appear to be 6-8 feet I picked up the whole lot for $500. I told the wife I was buying it to flip, but I may have to keep it for awhile, just to make sure it works properly.
  12. Thx. My area is only 11x12 ft so I only have my Mac, with phono amp, DAC, a Thorens TD 160 with a Nagaoka 110 cartridge, and a small pair of powered speakers. The family room is bigger at about 14x16 ft so there I have my Classik and the 5140's, along with a Pioneer Elite 300 Cd changer. Now that I know what the DAC will do I will at some point pick up another one for the CD changer. I have been trying to deal with a guy about some older Linn equipment, but he has been pretty flaky so not sure that is going to happen. So for now I just need to enjoy what I have.
