  1. There are many varieties / combination of Linn power cables, connectors and manufacturers. As you're happy that there are differences in cables, it doesn't seem reasonable to say that a Linn power cable is always best.
  2. What do you have them plugged into Zee? For anything with power amps inside, I find direct to the wall is the best. Conditioners / distribution units / regnerators best avoided. They'd be good for the Exakt electronics inside the speaker modules, but not so much for the power amps. I think the downside on the power amps will over ride any benefits on the DAC stuff.
  3. I did know that You can keep a track on what's happening on the show here: https://www.hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/155708-the-wam-show-2022/
  4. I did take this picture, but it wasn't practical without a complete replacement of the Ninka baffle. Not sure if I shared this picture before or not, but here it is, even though its not actually relevant to this project. I can imagine Philbo wouldn't be too impressed with a Ninka driver acting as a skoop!
  5. Mclaren colours? I'm not sure how what / where the contrasting blue would be? What are your ideas please?
  6. Project is nearing completion, but I need to think about what colour to paint the (former) Ninkas? Thoughts Linn hive? How about orange?
  7. I did say for me, not trying to contest or lecture, just for me. Subwoofers affect the whole range too. No reason why the mid or the tweeter or the bass might not do so too
  8. I don't actually agree with that, but it is the Linn philosophy. For me its the mid range, largely I think due to the benefit it brings to vocals, which is a major part of the emotional content of much music.
  9. Quality, not quantity, in this case. If they did a 100W amp of Solo quality, then your question would make sense.
  10. I've heard 707s with Akurate Exakt Katalyst and 4200, no problem at all. Even better with Akurate Exakt Katalyst and 2x Lejonklou Tundra Stereos. I much prefer 505 and 707 over 606, but that's just me. 808s are fantastic but I've only ever heard them full Klimax Exakt or Naim Classic Active.
  11. Ah, I thought they were black but reflecting the light. Do you think they're factory white? Not sure if that was a thing of not.
  12. Strange how the lighting makes it look like you have off-white Tukans.
  13. The average price increase is 14%, I saw a dealer on Facebook mention that means some items are going up by 30% - looks like Passive 350s are the victim. What's going on is that customers are likely to go elsewhere.
  14. They were fitted to the turbo version and the Montego. Horrendous to clean. Compare this photo to mine and you can see how much the Moto-build suspension lowered the car
  15. Transformed by Moto-build springs and bushes with gas shocks. Golf GTIs didn't stand a chance
  16. Later it had the 15" wire-mesh looking alloys from the last of the production line.
  17. Before Covid they were listing monthly factory visits on their events page - you just had to apply to join. https://www.linn.co.uk/uk/events
  18. Still in the same place. Internal layout has changed somewhat. Have been back several times since. Its always a good tour, highly recommended. Sometimes I write about it. http://audiophilemusings.blogspot.com/2015/09/linn-factory-customer-event-series-5.html http://audiophilemusings.blogspot.com/2013/09/linn-40th-birthday-party.html http://audiophilemusings.blogspot.com/2013/09/more-pictures-from-linns-40th.html
