  1. This thread is now the equivalent of watching paint dry. Or the equivalent of watching Ethernet cables being made. Whichever sends you to sleep first!
  2. I think we should ALL: ‘Just Switch Off Your Television Set and Go Out and Do Something Less Boring Instead!’ OR am I just showing my age...
  3. Yeah, remember what @Tony_J posted a bit earlier in the thread. It’s only stereo!
  4. Bernard Manning!? You’d better try Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown next time!
  5. Forget your Cat8! i bet this cable must be the DB’s of Ethernet cables: https://www.chord.co.uk/product/chordmusic-streaming-cable/ Anyone keen to try them?
  6. Linn Silvers ROCK, and are so much better than the Blacks. I’m using three pairs to daisy-chain my AK to my M126, via two C4100’s. Well worth the investment IMO
  7. David, we’re debating semantics here, nothing more. “Arthur: If I asked you where the hell we were, would I regret it? Ford: We're safe. Arthur: Oh good. Ford: We're in a small galley cabin in one of the spaceships of the Vogon Constructor Fleet. Arthur: Ah, this is obviously some strange use of the word safe that I wasn't previously aware of.” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  8. I’ve already got my flack-jacket at the ready here for what I’m about to say. Hell, I’ve double-layered just in case! BUT: You’re absolutely right in your analysis above. And just to stress: IN MY OPINION, AND IN MY OPINION ONLY. IMO there is a hardcore group of ‘Linnies’ in this Linn club and forum. I’m not being derogatory when I use the term ‘Linnie’, but the characteristics of this ‘species’ are as follows (tongue firmly placed in cheek!): They think that the sun rises and sets over Glasgow, and that Linn can do absolutely no wrong. Every product that Linn brings out and launches is just beyond reproach, and there is nothing else in this world that can ‘beat’ a Linn product. Hell, to even be critical of a Linn product is heresy iteself, and a direct attack on the company itself. There. I’ve said it. I’m removing my tongue from my cheek. But now watch the number of requests to get this post deleted. i have a lot of Linn kit. I have spent the best part of my life with Linn kit, and have spent the equivalent of many, many paypackets on Linn kit. It’s great. I love it. BUT Linn is not the ‘be all and end all’ of home audio. And the earth IS round, by the way Right. Now that’s off my chest, I can get back to the MUSIC
  9. I think to do this, Linn DS/DSM’s would need to be ‘Roon Ready’, and adopt Roon’s RAAT streaming protocols. Linn DS/DSM players are approved by Roon as ‘approved DAC’s’ rather than Roon-Ready network players. It’s unlikely that you would get an answer from Linn by posting on here, but if you check-out the Roon Community, there is a Linn section where you could ask the question, and probably get an answer from Roon themselves. https://community.roonlabs.com/
  10. I really don’t see any point in this proposal at all. Why would people want to pay for this? I certainly wouldn’t. And don’t worry about WAM finances. They’re probably doing fine with advertising revenue.
  11. I say, go optical connection, and be done with it all. No Ethernet, no problems. Simples!
