- HiFi Trade?
Thanks @Rockchild and do you think it would fit my expectations : laid-back sounding, smooth treble, no brightness but without being blurry ?
I’ll answer shortly, just dealing with our hyper puppy 🐶 lolThanks @Rockchild and do you think it would fit my expectations : laid-back sounding, smooth treble, no brightness but without being blurry ?
Sorry but don't understand what you mean by that (I'm french !)I’ll answer shortly, just dealing with our hyper puppy 🐶 lol
The Dog was on a mission to be entertained 😊Sorry but don't understand what you mean by that (I'm french !)
I guess U mean that you will answer soon ?
I doubt very much that the Arm is the initial problem here.I would probably blame the tonearm as much as anything , remove it sell it on eBay and buy a used Ekos mk2 with the funds, you for sure wont regret it the cheaper Lin. tonearms are kids play things , but if new enough still fetch a decent price. I am waiting for the firing squad as I type this I know people love Linn stuff but the Akito and Krane tonearms are not upto what an Ekos can do or even a decent rega tonearm for that matter. A dedicated phono stage is always a good idea though.
It's not. This is the latest release of the Akito. And like I said, no more problemI doubt very much that the Arm is the initial problem here.
This is correct as @myles also pointed out 👍🏻Also forgot to mention one important thing. Last sunday, I have done too many testing and it leads to confusion and listening fatigue.
After a good rest, I've finally listened to the Quasar set to 100 Ohm, and you were right saying it should be smoother than 470 Ohm config, it is ! It is also much more relax sounding.
So forgot about my first "complaint", sorry for that. The only thing where I am not fully satisfied is regarding the low end, which I find a bit blurry (not enough tight). But for that price I cannot complain this is a very good phono stage !
Maybe not but it wont help the Ekos will have more of everything tighter bass and better control the Akito and Krane are bright and cheap sounding I have owned all 3. So still a worthwhile upgrade which will probably cost nothing to change other than time and effort.I doubt very much that the Arm is the initial problem here.
Howdy.Hold your horses 😊
I know that phonostage very well and it’s far from bright or lethargic.
I am currently on my fifth trial phono leads from my turntable to phonostage and despite claims that there are specific phono leads (shielded), a decent well made copper derived cable is far better for this situation. My guess is your Linn is using the Linn Silver?
Hi Mate, anything but Silver so still looking.Howdy.
Did you settle on a phono lead that you liked?
Yannis Tome makes a decent phono leadHi Mate, anything but Silver so still looking.
Yes mate, had some before and likely to go to the copper ones with decent plugs. As the op says, silver in vinyl replay is a nightmare. My Benz is arriving tomorrow too.Yannis Tome makes a decent phono lead
