  1. Hi Paul, Are you using the forum thru your browser on the phone. I ask because I’m using a forum app called Tapatalk and can’t even access most of the sub forums etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For sale - Ruark Solstice speakers

    Aaaaaah I see a nice akubarik hidden in the first photo. Is that what you meant by aktiv? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Since it’s still related to being new with the Majik dsm/1 I thought i’d ask here. It seems to me like my display is weak in brightness. I have it set to 100 and the ambient sensor off. My much older unidisk SC display still seems brighter than the mdsm’s Any advice? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Linn SO+ for 2 Channel vs Surround

    I think you need to post this in the network and music players section. Search for Paulsurround space optimization. I think no Linnie’s have even seen this post. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    eBay amp sale damaged in transit - what now?

    The most important things are signs of damage to the box. Ask for a photo from the buyer. If it’s in America on the east coast then maybe ask a fellow warmer if he can go inspect the amp. If it’s near northern NJ or nyc I can surely go troubleshoot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Linn also confirmed that these amps with the cards could be used to drive keilidhs aktiv The crossover modifications would still be necessary. Just an FYI Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. @sherkaner - sent you a pm. Does anybody else know if the lk85’s with aktiv cards will work to drive keilidhs actively. I’m asking because I know that chakra cards for the ninka are the same for the keilidhs but not sure about these particular cards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Still deciding..... although on the verge of getting aktiv cards for my Kabers from the UK Anyone compared aktiv Kabers to aktiv ninkas??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Nice to see you here. I was the one who messaged you via eBay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’d consider it a good sign if someone else buys them as i’ll be less stressed about the decision. My Kabers cost me $140. Of course with the copper they’ve gone up in value to about $800 ) I made him an offer but he hasn’t agreed to my pricing. He’s surprised why he’s not getting his number just like I am. So if someone offers him the 6k plus shipping and fees I say good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. There is an aktiv pair of akubariks here for $6000 plus shipping plus PayPal fees. My sources are mdsm/1 and a unidisk SC. I’m guessing those sources may not be good enough then and not worth the $5000 expense with no possibilities of speaker upgrade. I also have the possibility of taking my Kabers aktiv ( I’ve never heard any linn speaker aktiv) with the c5100 for mid and bass and my c3200 for the highs. This upgrade is at less than 1/10th the cost and to me seems like a better deal at the moment. I can’t imagine the powered akubariks sounding 10 times better than an aktiv kaber.

  12. @tin - did you mean that the 212’s have integrated amps? I’m confused. My number for the powered akubariks was also exactly $5000. But only since my amps could be sold to recover some money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Apologies to the OP for taking this off topic again! I got involved in this topic as I’m in the process of discussing a possible purchase on a pair of aktive akubariks. No exakt and obviously no katalyst. Any suggestions as to what would be a fair price? I know the upgrade to exakt, katalyst and new measured modules is about $22160 plus tax. I’m guessing the only downside it will be the end y speaker upgrade path until I win the lotto. I can’t afford the upgrade but I’m guessing the akubariks would be a major step up over my passive /aktiv Kabers. I could also recover some money by selling my c3200 and c5100. Alternatively i have the option to take my Kabers aktiv which should be an improvement as well but i’ll need to find another c3200 to be satisfied. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m interested in this question too. Following Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. It rarely gets used as I have been ripping all my music so as to access via kazoo. It’s also connected via black interconnects instead of an optical cable as SACD’s can’t be played via the optical out when the mdsm is the preamp. Might be selling it soon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
