  1. Mine has the grey/white dot and serial number is in the high 9XXX IIRC.
  2. Wondering who will be the first brave one to clean an Ekstatik with Linn's green paper. Ensure your eyesight and pulse are perfect, and insurance policy is updated!
  3. Those screws in the Ekstatik.... Are those for adjusting tune and PRaT?
  4. Hi, Yes, Linn did reply on the dev forum and they will investigate. Regretably this is how Qobuz API works and there is not much leeway to change it.
  5. Hi, My Netgear Orbi's Armor firewall is alerting that my Linn Exakt DSM is sending clear text information with this warning: "NETGEAR Armor A.I. has detected that Linn Products speakers (Family Room) is sending your authentication information using a weak encryption and has prevented the connection and blocked that page. Websites with weak encryption can allow attackers to get access to sensitive and personal information. Websites with weak encryption can allow attackers to get access to sensitive and personal information." The blocked URL is: www.qobuz.com/api.json/0.2/user/login?app_id=140168716&username=C678&password=48DB (not my credentials) I know I can unblock the URL but still this seems to be a serious issue. I've posted in the Linn development forum but no comments from Linn yet. FWIW I'm using latest DAVAAR version. Regards, Vic
  6. Me neither. Too many years in IT must be part of the reason.
  7. Did you work in Audiophile Systems? If between early 1985 and mid 1987 then we must have either talked or met back then! I visited AS in September 1986 for a one week Linn/Naim brainwashing, oops!, training session. Back then I was working as Service Manager for Precision Audio in Puerto Rico, at that time the largest Linn/Naim dealer in the U.S. Still brainwashed by the way!
  8. I just upgraded from Akurate Kontrol/0 - Akurate DS/0 - AV5125 - LK140 to Akurate Exakt DSM - Majik Exaktbox-i (on loan) to drive my AV5140s and the improvement is dramatic! I never thought the Exaktbox-i could properly drive the AV5140s but its been surprising me each day. Regrettably it can't be upgraded to Katalyst AFAIK so I'm considering an Akurate Exaktbox-6 or 10 which can be upgraded to either Katalyst or (hopefuly) Organik in the future, and use my existing amplifiers. The Akurate DS/0 was 'demoted' to my office system (Naim Olive gear) replacing a Sonos ZP90, and the Akurate Kontrol (recently repaired by Linn) was passed over to a good friend at no cost.
  9. Sure, found it at digikey.com part number CKN10845-ND
  10. Here in Puerto Rico my Linn dealer for the past 37 years has been Audiovisionaries. https://audiovisionaries.guru/ Their management have been Linn dealers since 1983 and at one time they were the largest Linn dealer in the United States when they were known as Precision Audio, Inc. BTW, I'm the one that sets up and upgrades all their customer LP12s on my spare time.
  11. Sounds interesting but not my cup of tea. Customer system is tube-based and I'm not fond of tube-based gear.
  12. Hi, Yesterday I installed a 9 inch Kuzma 4-Point tonearm in an unsuspended turntable (Dr. Feickert Woodpecker). One thing I noticed is that the arm cable (a very stiff one) exits from the rear of the arm collar above the armboard surface, which in the case of a Linn LP12 will detrimentally affect suspension bounce. IMHO this arm will only properly work on unsuspended turntables. Here is a pic I took:
