  1. hello everybody, I'm looking for some parts for my linn setup, which is mainly a Unidisc SC>>Majik DSM/1>>C3200/C5100>>K400>>Kabers. my Kabers could use a new bass driver. the model number is spkr007/2 I am also searching for a tune box with active cards since I think that will be easier to find than dedicated cards for my chakra amps (is there a disadvantage to the tune box crossover?) my tweeters are the D20-LP-2 and I have been wanting to upgrade the tweeters and thought of looking for 15/3 or 15/5 or 038/2's as replacements but looking at the prices in the used market for these tweeters it may make more sense to just buy the hiquphon OW-II-92 since they are available here for $260/matched pair. if someone has a pair of polymer/kustone stands id be interested in those too lastly..... I need a set of spikes for my second system which are keilidhs. does anyone know what size the spikes for the kaber/keilidh are? maybe someone has an extra set lying around? regards Zee
  2. I presently use a unidsic SC as cd source and preamp. I also have a fully refurbished linn Kinos but I preferred the sound with my Unidisc SC. it may have also been that I stopped using a 5.1 setup and I never tried the kinos in just stereo mode. the kings also has a ton more settings than the Unidisc but I plan to test the kinks out again tomorrow as my younger brother wants to try it with my now borrowed by him Linn Keilidhs in plain stereo mode. my notes may also not be perfect as I changed to k400 cables when I removed the kinos (vs the older nordost flat wire cables.) I think my amps, speakers and source prefer the k400 cables
  3. i'm a complete newbie and maybe completely wrong but if the MDSM is 90w vs the 2100 (100W) id use the 2100 for the tweets and super tweets. my current setup is Kabers being fed by c5100 (2/5 channels at 100 watts) feeding the base and 2/5 channels at 100 watts feeding the mids (both via K400 cables). the c5100 gets its first two channels from a c3200 (2/3 channels at 200 watts) feeding the tweeters (k20 cables). I was told to use the better amp for the tweeters and usually to start the chain first to the tweeters. I had never heard Kabers before but it sounds way better than passive bi-wired with just my C3200. I wonder if adding an active tune box will improve it much better? I wish there were more linn enthusiasts in NJ, USA. id gladly host a bake off with some good whisky and find out if my setup is really as good as I think it is. I have a MDSM reaching me tomorrow and am keen to start streaming soon. it will replace my chrome cast audio.
  4. @paulsurround - what part of the US are you in? I’d love to hear more about your opinions and ideas if you’re ever in the NYC area. I’m just a beginner! Zee Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My First Streaming experience.

    Following this thread. Just bought a Majik DSM from the s/h market to add to my existing Linn setup. It will be replacing my chrome cast audio and Apple TV for the wave files I have on my computer and phone. Fee free to send any tips to me. It won’t reach me till the 18th but I wouldn’t mind reading up already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Refinishing my Linn Kabers

    Is it even possible to have the cabinets refinished. I love the sound of my Kabers but they are black ash wood which I really don’t find attractive. Wondering how to make them as beautiful as my walnut finished keilidhs. Is this a simple DIY project? Any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That’s true. If you do buy it buy the power adapter that takes the internet cable connection too. That’s what costs $15 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just my 2 cents. Spend $15 on a chrome cast audio and it will probably improve your streaming experience two fold. Also check your Spotify settings for playback and download. Set the music quality to extreme and you’ll see a major difference. It’s still only 320 mp3 quality but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
