  1. From the Linn web site; Specific to the Power Amplifier Dynamik (Applies to Klimax Solo, Klimax Twin, Akurate/Majik/Chakra power amplifiers, Majik-I, Majik DSM, Classik Music, Classik Movie, Klimax loudspeakers, Akubarik, AV 2250/5125) Increased Power The Power Amplifier Dynamik Power Supply has a 30% increase in its RMS output power. This provides more power to the amplifier stages to enable the amplifier to control the drive units more effectively.
  2. Sneaky is excellent piece of kit, especially when used as a source. Kept mine for years until I upgraded to a Klimax Renew. Software updates via Konfig and Space Optimisation are a bonus. Definitely worth getting one if you can.
  3. Hi, I dynamiked my 2250 a few years back and agree that it is a fabulous amp with this upgrade if you can still get it done (or do it yourself) It also makes it more powerful by 30% I believe!?

    Speaker cover, off or on?

    My last speaker were Audio note ANK and didn't have covers so wasn't an issue, with my latest ones I don't even know how to take them off and aren't going to waste time and energy trying, partly incase I damage them (I once removed some covers in a hifi shop many years ago and snapped the little plastic plug thing off, I left shop too embarrassed to confess - I expect someone later got them as a nearly perfect ex dem managers special!)

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    Not sure if its been mentioned already, but if using a digital source such as a streamer, try using an analogue pre-amp, this made all the difference for me and my system. Didn't really get on with an all digital setup, with inbuilt digital volume, but when I added an analogue stage the magic was revealed. Certainly done the trick for me. Should sound much smoother and warmer if that's what you are looking for...…...

    MAD (My Audio Design) 1920 I have these , which are another modern day variant albeit with better bass. Not sure they have sparkle though, or didn't until I added the Townshend super tweeters. Now they have great treble as well as awesome midrange and very respectable bass http://madengland.com/loudspeakers/1920.php

    Recommend Speakers

    How about Dali Opticon 2 There are some on Ebay , may work well with your other components ?
  10. Not sure if this has been mentioned before but most of the advice on the old Linn forum as I remember it was to buy something used at a fraction of the cost of buying something new. I was a regular reader and only occasional contributor and was very grateful for the good advice I received, but I wonder if it generated more sales for Linn or less in the long run? Often posts recommended older equipment that could be picked up on ebay etc and how great it was, good for the brand image and for loyalty possibly but not necessarily great for actually generating sales and shifting new units ...…..which I'm sure is their main objective! Just my two penn'orth of course ….. :-)

    What are these

    That's quite a lot for a mystery bargain basement lucky dip, does the seller not elaborate on their origins, thought they might if asking that kind of money?

    I would always opt for quality over quantity , I don't believe all watts are equal.
