    Yippeee Sold something to pay for my Exatbox Kat upgrade today! I am deliriously happy. It has taken over 6 months but finally I can go Katalyst! Just need to book it in next week. Will have to do some serious listening before sending it off so I remember how it all sounds now (this will never work though). Then a few weeks of no music And then... J'espere !!

    I agree with the definition; however, the term "HiFi" has for a long time now (like decades) been hijacked by the marketeers and really means "expensive, and expensive looking HiFi equipment that is designed to lighten the wallet while not necessarily delivering a high(er) fidelity audio performance"

    Joni Mitchell 'Turbulent Indigo’ (1994- CD) CD booklet includes a gallery of her own paintings. All incredibly impressive as you would expect ( if it’s JM ! ) as can be seen here by her van Gogh inspired self portrait. Yes, I accept that I’m just just jealous but it does sorta get right on my 'Eartha’s’ when you get these aliens who just seem to be outstanding at...whatever they choose.

    To be honest, much as some of that lot definitely has the 'want' factor, the words 'damp' 'ten' and 'years' do not bode well. Apogees are not renowned for being simple to maintain or re-instate, and damp would be a disaster. Factor in the cost of moving some relatively heavy kit a long way, and none of it really makes that much sense. I suppose if you can get any of it for peanuts, it's worth a try. However, it probably cost the owner a great deal of money at the time and I think you're more likely to offend than succeed. Mind you, why not? If you do get any of it, I'd check visually for any obvious damp damage, and power up with a variac and some dummy speaker loads.

    If ever there was a First World problem ... Let's be honest, without all the complications, this hobby of ours would not nearly be so much fun. And, to be fair to Linn, I doubt that the impact of this 'change', whatever it is supposed to be, is in any way random. Linn clearly have a (in my view, very wise) policy of not describing sound quality in technical documentation. Release notes have never discussed sound quality, even in cases, such as a major revamp of SO, where there is bound to be some audible change. Occasionally (and often some time after the event), the likes of Phil Budd would come on the forum and explain something in more detail, and I have seen posts from Phil here in the same vein. So we shouldn't be surprised about unannounced and undocumented changes in sound quality emerging from a Davaar release. What is more surprising is that it is AFAIK some time since such a change has been noticed by a number of people. BTW, so far as I can see, there has been no report of the change on the Linn Development Forum. Is that because Build 262 is not a beta? And I do hope we are not going to see a return to the days of lengthy and ultimately unproductive discussions about "the best sounding software version". IMO, most users are better off keeping their DS or DSM routinely up to date, for all the good management and configuration control reasons. David Later P.S. I've given up trying to decide what the change, if any, actually is. It's more fun just to stick a record on the turntable, sit back down and enjoy ...
