  1. Does the upgrade to exactlink prevent me from using it as a streamer with my amplifier using the XLR output? I assume the exactlink is for use with a linn power amp or powered speakers. Sorry for the basic question as I am not familiar with the various derivatives of linn .... Thanks, Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  2. Hi DomT, I'm enjoying reading your thread(s) .... The journey that people go on to improve their hi fi interests me especially if it is similar to the journey that I'm thinking of taking. Apologies as I may have missed it but has the Hegel 390 been thrown into the mix? Amp, DAC, streamer .... Great reviews. Also, it's out of your budget, but have you considered the anthem str amplifier - with DAC and streamer. It also includes their version of room correction, equalisation. There is a pre amp version which falls under budget but it means you'll have to hold on to your marantz .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  3. Hi there, I was wondering if there was a service available whereby someone from a hi fi / audio shop made a home visit and helped with room correction. For example I have a 2 channel set up - they come round measure my room and recommend I make the following changes and I'll need the following equipment. I appreciate many measure their rooms themselves but I can't be arsed and I'd like someone to do it for me. Does such a service exist? Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  4. Nice one cno - what a journey you've been on. I recall when you traded in your MF AMS amp for the Harbs. I always wondered with interest where you'd end up for amp duties. Also when did you end up with the akurate .... I just have missed that one .... How does it compare to the majik? Nopiano was also sneeky had moved to an akurate .... Again I missed both those upgrade. All the best. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk

    Nopiano - my man! Thank you! I've been looking at the second hand market for a DSM and came across the exakt which was generally cheaper and I wondered why. Are you happy with your akurate? Hope all is well. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk

    Hi there, Is there a difference between a akurate DSM and a akurate DSM exakt? What is exakt? Cheers, Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  8. Hi Gujeet - you must have some serious space to accommodate these bad boys :-) Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  9. Birmingham isn't too far away .... Audio Affair stock ATC actives .... It's where I had the pleasure of demoing the 40s .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  10. Hi - apologies I can't answer your question directly but hopefully my comment can add to the debate .... I sent feedback to Google to suggest they develop their equaliser setting to include a few more bandwidths (a soft DSP if you want). Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  11. I have these but have not compared to any other XLR cable. I enjoy what I hear. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  12. Looking forward to this .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  13. I like the way you've snuck in a linn Ds to your set up :-) .... I must have missed that .... Did you comment on your experiences with the linn in another thread as I would be interested to hear about it's impact ... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  14. Good price .... They were £160 around 10 years ago ... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  15. Cnos beat me to it :-) Unfortunately they don't make them anymore. One of mine was accidentally knocked over and smashed .... I'm sure I have a photo somewhere ..... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
