  1. If you look at the measurements, I don't think they'll fit. Keltik: W: 320 mm, D: 370 mm. Keilidh: W: 200 mm, D: 275 mm
  2. That is certainly true, especially for combo as good as the Adikt and the Lejonklou Slipsik 7 preamp...
  3. I would definitely trade the Majik DSM for the AEDSM or possibly the KEDSM, streaming will certainly be improved and you get a better A/D converter (especially in the KEDSM). If you can find one with the HDMI 2.0 board, you would only need one HDMI cable from the DSM to the ARC input of your tv (assuming it has one) and you the connect the other devices to the tv. That's what I did, when I got the Katalyst upgrade for my ADSM and it works very well.
  4. Yep, that's quite a contrast to the views expressed in the HAKAI-thread on the Lejonklou forum, where Mr. Lejonklou says that the DAC actually doesn't have that big an influence on the musicality of the streamer.

    Headphone break in period

    My Songs Faber Pryma headphones sounded quite mushy and undynamic at first, this improved a lot after about a week of use.
  6. Careful positioning is the first step to getting the 212's to sing, do spend a few hours there. Have you tried putting the bungs in the rear ports and reversing the polarity at speaker end (when used with the sub)? They certainly shouldn't have less bass than the Majik 109's.
  7. @Rich9600: If you are ever tempted to quad-amp the M140's with 8 Solos, don't do it. Somehow it was better with just one pair of Solos. Besides, it also saves you € 63.060,-
  8. Caps need to be replaced?
  9. I can certainly confirm, that going from tri-amping Akubariks passively with one Majik 6100 to quin-amping with 2 x Majik 6100 was a clear improvement. Mind you, I have also experienced a case, where bi-wiring was possible and bi-amping not. This was a pair of Écouton LQL 200's that had been converted to bi-wiring according to the manufacturer's instructions by my dealer. This is, however, the only case that I have come across.
  10. I could use that too with my current system Oh darn, I don't have the space. But I guess I would make room, if they showed up on my doorstep
  11. Ooops, I just realized that I have forgotten to measure every upgrade ever made, nor did I do any unsighted comparisons. I guess that means that my first "serious" hifi system from 1984 (Marantz turntable and receiver, Jamo loudspeakers) didn't sound any different from my current system (Linn LP12/Keel/Radikal/Urika/Ekos 2/Akiva/Linn Akurate DSM Katalyst/QNAP 219P II/Cisco WS-C2960-8-TC-L/Linn Akurate Tuner/1 x Majik 6100 & 1 x Majik 4100/Linn Akubarik (aktiv), Grado PS500e) It was just my imagination, running away with me...
  12. Matteo's suggestion of Adikt/Lejonklou Slipsik 7 phono pre would bring another big smile to your face. But, I would probably go for the best arm you can afford (Ekos 2 or Ekos SE/1) and an Adikt to go with that. Strictly a Keel would the next step, but since you just got the Kore, I would probably eliminate the weakest links (Akito 1/MC 10) first.
