Dear all, With adequate configuration in Konfig, is it possible to have, for instance, an Akubarik Passive driven by an EB10 and 6100+4200 or AV5125+6100 or some other non-Linn 10ch setup. Or, on the opposite, all amplifiers channels need to be identical ? need to be all referenced Linn models ? I couldn't find an answer in the Linn docs nor in this forum. And as I do not yet have an ExaktBox, I can't explore the software. Thanks in advance.
Very first post for this new kid in class… I am “across the pond” in Seattle but my audio gear is all UK made so I thought this would be a good place to paddle in. I have Linn and Rea gear in two very different listening locations. Our main home in Seattle was built in the 1950s and features an odd boiler based heating system with hot water tubes in the ceiling. The main living room is a “lively” sounding long L shaped space with low ceilings (due to the heating system) with lots of windows at the opposite end. We also have a cabin on Orcas Island (out near Victoria BC Canada) with a much warmer forgiving sounding space with tall wooden ceilings and a thick rug right in front of well placed speakers. Seattle: Linn Majik DMS (digital streaming, DAC and amp) Linn Majik 140 speakers SONOS (Connect Amps, Connect, B/W speakers) for non critical multi-room listening (kitchen, outside deck, etc) Orcas Island: Rega Elex-R amp Rega RS7 floor standing speakers Rega DAC (earlier model, not the DAC-R) SONOS Connect (digital streaming) Rega Planar 6 turntable w/ high end Ania MC coil cartridge and Rega Planar power supply Rega Aria phono stage pre amp The Seattle system sounds great while streaming Tidal via the Linn Majik system (Kazoo app). No complaints. But streaming to multiple rooms involves switching inputs and using the SONOS system which just does not deliver the same sound quality. But for non critical listening it is fine. On Orcas Island the Rega turntable system sounds amazing. Streaming via the SONOS Connect is the main weakness though. I would like to preserve the sound quality I get from the Rega turntable system on Orcas. I plan on using Roon at both locations. The SONOS Connect on Orcas needs to go first. So the question is how best to approach this without creating an exploding budget domino situation? * I could just get a new hi def Roon compatible streamer on Orcas and leave the rest alone? * I could get a new streamer and DAC (one box or two) and keep using the Rega Elex-R? * I could replace the SONOS Connect, Rega DAC and the Elex-R with new components? ** One high end but expensive option is get a new Linn Selekt (with or without Katalyst) plus amp Module for Seattle and move my Linn Majik to Orcas Island? ** Another even more expensive (but intriguing) option is adding a new Linn Akurate System Hub (Exakt DSM) plus a Akurate Exaktbox-I (w/ 8 channels Majik Amps & 8 channels Katalyst DAC) and move my Linn Majik to Orcas Island? *** And then there are a zillion other options? Any thoughts here? Thanks! Max
