  1. Great news!!! Enjoy the music. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»
  2. SO v1 only knows the dimensions of a room by what dimensions you enter into Konfig. If you enter the dimensions into the room as a rectangle it will not know any better. 🀭 You’re welcome πŸ˜‰
  3. I have my Majik Exaktbox I placed front plate down on a shelf, behind the sofa. This is so I can plug in all the connections, which now face upwards I have never heard the fan kick in yet.
  4. Yes, 5.1 files do sound amazing into an Exakt Surround system. 5.1 through an Exakt system provides immersion in the music, and unprecedented details in BluRay/DVD movies, Music concerts and 5.1 DVD-Audio and SACD discs. I have ripped more than 80 DVD-Audio music discs in 5.1 and 24/96 or 24/192 These files are stored on my NAS and streamed as FLAC through my OPPO 203 to my AEDSM via HDMI as a PCM stream. Sound quality is simply wonderful However, I actually prefer to spin the 5.1 DVD-Audio and SACD discs, which have a bit warmer sounding, and sound signature. Over your way, NRWatson has a full Katalyst Exakt Surround system that is sure to please. 😊
  5. I would start at 50 Hz and adjust the gain in 0.2 dB increments. Cheers
  6. I agree with you, that the Ethernet cables must meet their specs properly.. The Certicable Cat8, I mentioned in the opening post of this thread that kicked off this whole discussion is designed, built and tested by Certicable, and meets the Cat8 spec. Meicord, Blue Jeans and Supra also sell Ethernet cables that meet the specs of their respective designation.
  7. It would great to see what you have done with some pictures that show the steps you have taken, and the final product. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ Cheers Paul
  8. If you turn up the amp to use even 25 watts of power, that is usually more than adequate to power the speakers to extremely high volume. If you watch wattage output on an amp, such as a McIntosh with the big blue meters on the front, you can see that even using 5 watts is often enough to drive most speakers to moderate listening levels. Inefficients speakers, such as Magneplanars are power hogs, and do require more power, but that is often the exception.
  9. Every time I shut down the power on my AEDSM, or do a firmware update, I lose my playlist. The good thing is, when I reload it with some music from my NAS, I discover all sorts of music, I didn't know I had. I agree that there should be a much better system to save my playlists and not lose them, time and again.
  10. Tin, you onlee speech 4 sandwitchs. Ur Denglish iz pritty gud if u axe mee. πŸ‘πŸ»
  11. Thanks Tin, that is refreshing to know. πŸ˜‚
  12. Thank you Zee for the quick reply I just realized that I do access the Forum through Tapatalk on my iPhone. But for my IPad I use my browser, I don’t use Tapatalk, and it is stuck as well. This morning, when I opened HiFi Wigwam and logged in, the latest postings showing were 2 days old. I have to open each thread individually to see if there are newer posts than what is showing on the home page.
  13. I have noticed that when I log into HiFi Wigwam, on my iPhone or iPad to see what the latest posts or threads are, that the posts are not the latest posts from members. For example, on the home page, the most recent posts showing listed posts can be stuck from posts 1 or 2 days before, and does not update to the newest listings. Even selecting Network Music Players & Music Streamers, or HiFi Separates and Components does not load the latest posts, but posts from a day or more old. This morning I had to go into Safari on my iPad, and clear all my History and Website Data, to see the newest posts. Discussions with another Linn Club member also noted they have the same issue, and can’t see the most recent posts. Suggestions?
