Just to clear up some of the confusion on here, there is no Organik ADC.  The Organik is Linn's own DAC implementation with most of the pre-DAC processing done through an FPGA.  There was no mention o

The trade in program in the US has a subsidy from Linn of $7500 reduction in the retail of the new KDSM.  (Note the dealer doesn't get $7500 but their normal profit percentage of that $7500, so both L

I find it interesting that one or two folk here seem to think the only people buying the new KDSM are those with more money than sense, who’d only be buying one so they can lord it over friends, with

Couple of questions:

With the new clock the discussion on audiophile switches has come to an end?

With the optical ethernet connection the discussion on audiophile ethernet cable has come to an end?

Instead we are looking forward to discussions on how to tune sfp adapter and which optical cable sounds best?

:D :P :D

Probably to be replaced by the great audiophile fibre cable debate. AQ already sells a £520 optical cable, I’m sure they won’t want to miss out on this new opportunity. 

And Melco already sells an audiophile fibre optic switch. https://www.melco-audio-masters.com/uploads/1/0/1/5/101505220/mel_2073_s100_a4_2pp_info_sheet_v3.pdf

There are lots of exciting debates ahead. 

I am often told I should upgrade my Mac mini with its Firewire Attached Storage to an audiophile NAS, but lots of folk use Tidal & Qobuz these days. I wonder what audiophile music servers Tidal & Qobuz use? 

But then folk laughed at my suggestion of audiophile wire socks https://smile.amazon.co.uk/PureMounts-Universal-Binding-Diameter-Polyester/dp/B008KL836Y/ref=sr_1_1

And judging by the weight of the thing, I think it may well have a local substation inside it, or a small nuclear reactor. We might not need to worry about mains cable choice any more either!!

My listening thoughts on KDSM/3 as system hub and as an Organik source.

As I'm constantly curious, I came up with a nice little experiment that can be performed.

Fully spec'd Klimax LP12 into the Katalyst KDSM and into the Organik KDSM, both playing the same album that is captured by the Songcorder.

I'm curious if the two samples will present a difference when played back on a lower-end system (Katalist KDSM, ADSM, and so on). My gut feeling is that the soncordered Organik KDSM should sound better even on lesser systems, but I have no way to prove it :D

Anybody willing to give it a try?

I'm sure that could be heard. I remember comparing the Urika 1 and 2 on songcorded files, the difference could easily be perceived.

Someone should tell the Zeiss guys in Jena 🇩🇪. There might be more profit in it, than building custom telescope lenses, planetarium systems, and alike. 🤑
