  2. I want to equalise the air pressure in the speaker chamber, I have no idea where to aquire the pump/gauge, do I need to use an official linn product or can I use something else to do this. or is it something a dealership would do. Any help out there?

  4. Well things have been a little quiet of late with me avoiding changing anything and just listening after finishing my Active three way KEF103 stacked speakers. As these will be the main part of my system for the Wam Show I am happy they are playing and being used every day and sound pretty good . So as with most that seem to graduate to DIY active speakers there is always something else to look at and do and I have owned a pair of nice Linn Sara 9 units for a few years now and wanted to see what happens if i take these and make them active . Biggest downside of this is being able to get the drive units out and removing the crossover so i can then connect the drivers directly to the speaker connectors . With my zero mechanical skills and utter stupid lack of patience this was not something I would ever consider myself and I had never found anyone who would do the job for me. Well as luck would have it found a mention on another thread of someone who would do this and delivered the units for work first week of May . That work is now all complete and here are a few pictures of the strip and refit . I will add some pictures of the strip as well and if possible a picture of the finished units. All drivers have been tested and appear to be working well and well matched which is a good sign . Now my work starts and i need to get these back home and fitted in to a system with a MiniDSP DDRC24 pair of Quad 405 power amps and possibly a Perpetual Technology PA-1 Upsampler unit which will act as a digital switch box so I can move across from my Server Player to a Meridian 200 CD transport .
  5. 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.
  6. Has anyone had the opportunity to compare Linn Ninka against the PMC Twenty 23 and care to share their findings?
  7. Hi All, I thought I'd share my findings regarding the title incase anyone else is considering this uograde...... I purchased the OW1-92 tweeter upgrade kit (with capacitors) for my Keilidhs. I had the 15/3, 3 bar tweeters installed. I installed the capacitors first and heard a significant improvement in clarity and more importantly speed! I then changed one of the tweeters so that I could compare the two types of tweeters and the OW1-92 sounded more open and transparent. I then put both OW1-92s in and sat back..... Well, the sound was more accurate, open and brighter, I would compare it with going aktiv with Linn amps. Not sure if it's as relaxing but I prefer the sound as found the original keilidhs a bit boxed in. Overall, I think tha capacitors are a fantastic cheap upgrade with the 15/3 tweeters, but the OW1-92 tweeters and capacitors really does liven the old keilidhs up. If you have the original 15/1 mesh tweeters the OW1-92s would be a massive improvement, if you have the 15/3's then they are still a fabulous upgrade. I would definitely recommend this upgrade kit and think that over a number of hours the tweeters will burn in nicely and give many happy hours listing. Not sure if I'm allowed to post where I got the kit from, but if I am please let me know and I'll post iton the thread. Any questions, please feel free to ask. Cheers, Ed
  8. Full set of replacement stand-offs and associated mounting screws for this amplifier. These are new equivalents, not used Linn parts. £9.95 plus postage at cost.
  9. Linn amices, Apologies for my ignorance and long term memory loss but can anyone tell me how to get playlists from the Tidal app into one of the linn apps? I’ve been successful with this in the past but forgot how to. Tried the Linn faq and documentation and even google but couldn’t find the right way. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hello, im new to this forum so fingers crossed Ive started a thread in the correct place etc. i have late eighties lp 12 and want to upgrade the power supply and wondered wether the vinyl passion revolution is a cheaper lingo option. how does it stack up against all lingos ? Cheers phil
  11. The LVIII’s were the last of the Ittok’s and the Mk2’s with the longer arm tube, smaller stiffer head shell and integral arm rest were made in very small numbers and are as rare as hen’s teeth. Some regard the Japan built LVIII’s as being better than the early Scottish built Ekos 1’s and arguably only worth replacing for the uber expensive Ekos SE. I bought this arm from Cymbiosis in 2011, it having been serviced by Audio Origami and given a clean bill of health prior to the sale. It’s been used on an otherwise top spec LP12 and had sporadic use since I acquired it. The arm is in immaculate condition bar the usual tiny head shell cartridge screw marks which are hidden and the grub screw retainer mark on the barrel, again hidden in use. I don’t have the original box, which I understand few owners do as dealers retained them for some mysterious reason. It was supplied to me in an Ekos box as you can see in the pictures. Please note a T-Kable isn’t included in the sale. I’m really unsure how to price this arm. LVII’s seem to be going for up to £650 and the last LVIII Mk1 I saw for sale some years ago was over £900. I don’t recall seeing a Mk2 for sale so it’s difficult to price. Ekos 1’s now seem to fetch over £1k so a much rarer Ittok LVIII Mk2 could reasonably fetch a similar price? Maybe I’m better off trying to auction it on Ebay but I’ll try here: £975 Inc. UK delivery.
  12. Excellent Unidisk 1.1 with relatively few hours on it, maybe ~200. Plays every CD I threw at it perfectly, never tried anything else, never owned a SACD. One of last built as Linn cleared out last stock components 2007 and had been in storage until this year. But even though this sounds amazing who knew back then we'd all (well nearly all) go the streaming route!?!? I can't get away from it and this is replaced by a DSM in my set up. I did briefly have DSM and Unidisk running together, and Unidisk sounds better than internet streaming and about equal to FLAC on a home NAS. Looking for a firm £1000 + postage, or swap for a good, black Linn 6100 power amp with Dynamik
  13. Looking for a Linn Classik, any model, any colour, ideal would be a black K/230. Can have a defective CD transport if need be, as is wanted for pre-amping only. TIA!
  14. For Sale Linn Klimax Kontrol/1 Pre-amplifier with Dynamik Power Supply & Dual Mono configuration. In excellent condition, no marks or other blemishes on it. Will be packed in original Linn box & inserts. Includes power cable & Linn remote control. Looking for £2200 plus P&P.
  15. My original Linn dealer Gary Dilliot who ran Better Music in Niagara region sadly passed away a couple of years ago. He's hard to replace, but I'd love to hear any service/repair or dealer recommendations (independent or stores) for the Toronto area - if they also service Rega, even better.
  16. For the geeks amongst us, follow the link to side by side comparison photos. It is clear that every board (bar the PSU) has been replaced with the lovely black and gold Akurate style. https://audiophilemusings.blogspot.com/2020/07/linn-exaktbox-i-photo-comparison.html
  17. One Linn 038/2 Tweeter in very good condition and fully working.

Shipping to other locations at cost, but must be with insurance. Thanks
  18. I use Kazoo from a number of Win 10 laptops. The playlists are stored locally on each. In order to aggregate them I wanted to find their file location but an internet search found nothing. In case another Win10 has the same question they are in: C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Local\Packages\LinnProducts.LinnKazoo_6mhshthykptx8\LocalState\Data\linn.co.uk.kazoo\Playlists\ I suspect that this will vary with the version of Kazoo you have loaded = LinnProducts.LinnKazoo_6mhshthykptx8 M
  19. From original klimax upgrade.... Fantastic streamer the only one I've owned to rival my vinyl source... But getting rid of 2nd system now so only keeping upgraded one... This is 97%as good in my books. Higher res pics here https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1UC6hVWw0alfs2Vi9NdMUoqXjx6UB94Bf There is the tiniest mark on top see pic in drive ... Only noticed when taking pics but doesn't affect sound and had to angle pic light to show it. Read the reviews and bid with confidence. Boxed but no manual but you can get pdf from linn site. Running latest software... Konfig makes this a Doddle and you can use linns fantastic software if have less that perfect setup to tweak sound and get. Rid of any room artifacts... Can't think of many streamers that allow that....

  20. Dear Linn Users, I don't know what proportion of Linn owners use Airplay with any of the DS line, so I hope these experiences might prove useful to others. I use Airplay a lot to stream BBC catch-up content (via the BBC Sounds app) and for years I'd been experiencing drop-outs, but I simply put it down to wifi interference that was beyond my control. Then when I was in a position to exercise control over the environmental factors (after I'd got my own place) I did some extensive testing. I compared my Linn DS and DSI with my Naim MuSo, which also has Airplay. Alternately I substituted my Linn players with the Naim, positioning it exactly in the exact same spot (and therefore using the same wiring and infrastructure etc.). And each time the test was the same: to airplay the same programme from BBC Sounds for a set length of time on the same wifi channel. (Actually, I used two iphones - 5s (ios12) and 6s (13), but both on the same version of BBC Sounds.) The results were conclusive - the drop-outs always occurred on both Linns, but never (at all) on the Naim. Roughly every 8 minutes or so, there was a drop-out. I shared these results with Linn Help & Support. Each time I'd contacted them before they had given the stock answer: "It's your wifi network. See our/Apple's troubleshooting". This time, however, things were irrefutable and they were more forthcoming. They said it was because the audio buffering on the Linns only runs to approx. 8 mins (or so) and the buffer on the Naim MuSo must be more generous. I asked if they could extend the buffer via a firmware/sw update, but it's a hardware limitation, so there's nothing that can be done. I was stunned that such high end audio equipment could fall so short. It sent my previously-high regard for Linn plummeting. So, I started looking for an alternative airport receiver, which I could use to provide an audio channel into the Linn. I'm leaning towards a Raspberry Pi solution (which I gather can be loaded with software which'll transform it into an airport-capable receiver) and to then use a HifiCherry Digi+ card to provide a s/pdif line into the Linn. This is as far as I've come. Has anyone come-a-cropper with the same issue? Has anyone taken the same/a similar airport-receiver approach? If so, I'd be grateful for any observations you can share, especially on the audio quality. Thank you. P
  21. Hi After 4 years and about 1,800 hours, I think that my Adikt is close to the end. The sound became harsh and with a lot of sibilances, my modest Cambridge CXN is now a lot better than the LP12 to listen to. Is the cartridge worn-out? M.
  22. 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
  23. Good Morning All, Hopefully I'll not incur the wrath of the moderators as this isn't a eBay link but a Gumtree one - https://www.gumtree.com/p/speakers/linn-active-speakers-prototype/1353622953 I'm sure somebody here might be interested? Regards Richard
