  1. Mr Underhill


    You chaps are taking this FARRRR too seriously. You must learn to NOT listen to experts, just rely on the ideologically driven cadre of spiffing politicos we now have running the show. We have the self proclaimed U.S. Messiah on our side, what could POSSIBLY go wrong? .....excuse me, I need to go and curl up in a ball after I have finished taking my medication.
  2. I would say this is still a tad over-priced, but a great pre-amp.
  3. Hi Peter, I too use the high level input connected to the inputs of my main speakers, as recommended by my dealer. Same arguement but a lot less extra cable.
  4. Linn Klimax DS/1 Renew: When v2 allowed the adding of a subwoofer I added my BK XL400 DF as Other & Other. When I compared this to my Paul inspired v1 profile I preferred the v1. However: I reinstated the v2 profile and adjusted the Optimisation Preference, increasing the low frequency energy going from 80% back to 60%. v1 - This is darker with more bass energy v2 - Brighter, but now with more balance in terms of bass input to my ear. I will be sticking with the v2 profile for a number of weeks. When I move back, and especially if I prefer the v2 profile, I will spend time adjusting the v1 profile and seeing if further tweeking can restore its primacy. Nice 'problem' to have,
  5. Having added my sub using the newly updated v2 functionality I swapped back to the v1 profile yesterday. Although the v2 is now very close I still prefer the Paulsurround v1 profile.

  7. The amp has a great rep and those speakers look superb. GLWTS. A friend pointed these out to me, and even offered to collect them for me. If I hadn't bought a pair of Naim SBLs a few weeks ago, which are working well for me, these would have been heading South.
  8. I tell you Phil, I may have a great pre but I still find this tempting. It is a great device. GLWTS.
  9. IF I was still looking for speakers these would have been bought by me, very nice. GLWTS.
  10. Just back from EAR. TdP over in Japan. Looked after very ably by Dena and the chaps. Malcolm was VERY thorough. The two tiddlers underneath the 534 needed replacing. Two of the output valves were also past their best, so I WAS going to have them replaced .....but it became a pain to identify which specific valve was not on point on the right channel, so I decided to just have all eight replaced, a tad cheaper than KT90s, another good reason for getting a 534. The two small switches on the rear also needed replacing. EAR have changed their EL34 valves. As Malcolm said, 534 is good as new. Home, reinstalled. 1.5 hours there, 3 hours back!
  11. If you have Bel Canto and are looking at this I found this cable gave a worthwhile lift in performance; and, that was at the full price.
  12. Thx Pete, I am finding that the SO v2 profile is getting ever closer to that I set up using Paul's methodology in v1; be interesting in a few days to see which I prefer. I am really grateful to the back end bods who have been beavering away at these changes. Speaks volumes for them and Linn. Please pass on my thanks. Cheers, M
  13. I have: Added the sub; Made three profiles - a) No roll off; b) Roll off at 30Hz (Main lower limit); and, c)Roll off at 60Hz, where I have set my subs xover. I prefer (c). I will run with this profile for a few days and then switch back to Paul's v1 profile. Which I have been really enjoying .......but, curiosity needs to be scratched! Thx Pete for the helpful support. M
  14. Thx Pete, So why if you apply a roll off does it ask for the roll off frequency?
