  1. Agree IFTTT is more customisable. I would be in trouble remembering if there were more than 6 pins 😳
  2. You can directly control the Pins with Linn’s Alexa skill. Alexa channel 2 on “DS name” will start Pin2 on the DS . You have to set up the Linn Smart Home skill in Alexa first.
  3. I was using the Linn and Alexa Applet within IFTTT to play specific hi-res versions of radio stations. When I saw Linn were withdrawing support I looked for alternatives. I found by using the Linn Alexa skill and the add custom URL within TuneIn I could replicate my usage of IFTTT. Its not so elegant and a lot of addition functionality available in IFTTT will be lost. I don't know what the reason for dropping but suspect its down to resource allocation with other things taking priority. I don't know how many people used IFTTT, I think its great, but think in the Linn community, I'm in a minority.
  4. Oh that explains some of what I have been seeing However it would be nice to be able to see the details of the room from the Rooms left hand pane, say select the room and then be able to show the details. I was trying different adjustments to the wall absorption. The last change I didn't like, so deleted the optimisation. Now I cannot see the room at all as the previous one says the room has changed. But the room has not changed physically but the absorption of the wall has. These different optimisations sound different as I load them so I am assuming absorption is not part of the "physical" room. So why can't I see the room, why does it say its changed?
  5. Not blind - as I watched the electrons flow from the KDSM to the Solos they just looked that little bit different. The level was matched as I hadn’t moved the interconnects so they were at the same height. Hope this helps 😜
  6. My initial impression was yes I did hear a difference, but the more I listened the more I couldn’t identify what if anything it was and hence the question. Need to listen a bit more tomorrow.
  7. Could somebody from Linn comment on the changes to the space compiler from version 2.3.4 to 2.4.1 Was this only to support Exakt or were there other changes?? thanks
  8. Thanks I'll check that out. Haven't done any changes for a while (my system is not exakt)
  9. And worse still you cannot use details to see what values you used when you created it. Details only work on the last optimisation I have taken to renaming mine to include date/time, compiler, optimisation setting (25/75 or whatever), indication of adjustment to Absorption Adjustments (-15P for example -15% Partition), humidity and temp (45H24C). Also if I've modified the room layout I also try to add some abbreviation for that too. I'm sure you can work out your own shorthand but it does help identify one optimisation from another.
  10. Try changing the Optimisation Preference which is probably 80% Flat Frequency Response and 20% Short Decay Time to 20% Flat.. and 80% Short... If that brings the bass back, then try all options in between until you get one you like
  11. I think it stores it as a V1 profile but in the cloud. I did this and when I went into Konfig it could see the same profile and matched the web loaded V1 profile. You can store multiple V1 profiles by loading them one by one using Konfig and saving them using the web interface. I don’t use surround so cannot comment on this.
  12. I am using "Drywall" to describe this based on a post by PeteLinn. I had previously used concrete. From the manual: Concrete describes any solid or heavy construction, including brick, blockwork or stone; Drywall describes any mid-weight construction, including plaster on brick; Partition describes any flexible or lightweight construction, including wooden studwork or plasterboard walls; and Unknown provides an averaged absorption coefficient which should be used when the construction material is unknown.
  13. @wonky1969Just saw this post. I have my sub (or Infrasonic generator as Wilson Benesch would have it) in position 4 in Paul's diagram. The single sub is fed from both left and right channels. I too am using SOV2 and have the sub in an ideal position half way along an arc between the two main speakers that keeps the sub at the same distance from the listening position as the two main speakers. The practical position is then position 4. Seems to work very well.
