  1. I use a combination of an Akurate DSM Exact/Katalyst and Akubariks completely upgraded as well. The sound though seems to be shrouded, like a curtain is hanging in front of it. Mostly I use Tidal as source (the high quality subscription). By using a simple Denon record player DP-1200 it sounds better, which seems weird to me. Can I have done something wrong installing the system? Need of different network cables to the internet source? Or do I need specific settings in Konfig? Any help is much appreciated. Peter
  2. I use the optical out on the Akurate hub with my Phonak Bluetooth transmitter which streams directly to my Phonak hearings-aids. I can balance the sound between the stream and the speakers in the room with the phone app. This is helpful as my hearing continues to deteriorate. At least I have QIQO (quality in quality out) from my system. I’ve ordered an optical splitter. Once I’ve proved this works with the Phonak transmitter, I’d like to emulate the room/phonak set up with a set of my wired headphones. My next step then will be to link an optical cable to a headphone amp. Does this sound viable and any recommendations for a suitable headphone amp. I’d prefer one with a volume knob rather than a remote and at a proof of concept, rather premium, price at this point. All help welcomed. Thanks, Bob.
  3. Hey everyone, new to the forum to reach out for info I cannot for the life of me find on the internet searches .... background: After several years travelling for work I recently moved into my (hopefully) final home and unboxed the Linn kit I had in storage for a long time (Unidisk 1.1, Akurate Kontrol, 2x4200 Akurate amps) and hooked them up to my floorstanders I got while in Canada. Awful. I recognised that several years in a shipping container had done for the speaker driver units but all the Linn kit worked 1st time AOK. Wonderful, even the Unidisk shrugged off all that time in socially distanced isolation. I had always promised myself to go full Linn one day so got a set of 242s and aktiv cards from a hifi dealer on ebay who said he'd configured them before shipping for aktiv. I figured out the aktiv card line up in the 4200s and pwoered it up .... it was much better ... but still not right. I went into the back of the 242s and saw two parallel set of connectors labelled active and passive: makes sense the passive set go to the xovers and active set bypass them direct to drivers and it looks like common return wires so you should only need to connect one or the other. But both were connected and I found reversing them as per colour labelling improved it massively but the sound is still not quite right. I had to have *both* active and passive connectors plugged in to get sound to the driver - wierd since it looks like with a common return on them I shouldn't need to do this. I did swap outputs from the 4200s to ensure the correct aktiv card was going to the correct driver and you can't miss it when it's wrong so I am happy the aktiv cards line up with the drivers. I could go back to start at all passive but again the 242 cabling needs to be checked. Forum help Long story short I want a wiring diagram for the 242s to figure this out without disassembling them from the front, or clear guidance on how to go about confirming correct aktiv configuration. No manual I found describes the passive-active switching/set-up process. Maybe I need an installer's manual, owner's doesn't have this. I could use the same for the installation of aktiv cards to the 4200s just in case I missed a step there too. I need to get these basics checked before I look at the possibility of degraded quality of different components in the system.
  4. Linn Akurate DS/1 Streamer - £1,499.00 The Linn Akurate DS provides outstanding performance and comes with both balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs, it also features Space Optimisation technology, giving you a performance that's optimised for your speakers, their placement and your unique listening environment. I have owned this Akurate DS/1 from new and I am only selling now because I have upgraded to a Linn Klimax DS. It is in exceptional condition, as can be seen from the photos, except for a small mark on the top front which can only be seen from close up. Please study the photos closely and you will see what a fantastic condition it is in. It features the Linn Dynamic Power Supply and is running the very latest software, Davar 77, which was only released on 23rd July 2020 and comes complete with the mains lead, RS232 cable, original remote control, original documentation and all the original packaging. The item is located near Redruth in Cornwall If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
  5. Does anyone know if I can drive two preamps with both XLR and RCA with Akurate DS/3? Both preamps have input impedance of 50k ohms. If yes, should I expect there to be any sonic degradation from driving multiple loads?
  6. I can't find any specifications for the Headphone out on my AKurate DSM Katalyst. Anyone help here? Can you give me some recommendations as to a good pairing. Has anyone compared stand alone headphone amps with the direct out of the ADSM?
  7. Black, excellent condition. Was originally built as a DS/1 and was Katalyst and Exaktlink upgraded at the Linn factory in April last year. Invoice for the upgrade from Linn retailer (Peter Tyson) will be included with the DS and will have the full balance of the transferable 5 year warranty. Original remote, mains lead, box and packaging for safe shipping. £2,850 + postage at cost I'm located in Argyll and Bute, post-code PA29 but make regular trips to Darlington, County Durham (and anywhere along the route)
