  1. Hi, Several months ago my Akurate DS/0 and my Akurate Kontrol preamp stopped communicating with each other, and I cannot control the preamp from Kazoo or any other control software app. I swapped the interconnecting cable with a new one from Linn but no luck, have done full factory resets to both the Akurate DS/0 and the Akurate Kontrol, checked all configuration settings in both units as per instruction manuals, and even did a few firmware reloads on the Akurate DS/0 but still they don't talk to each other. Ideas? Has anyone experienced this?
  2. Question I am interested in whether Linn DS users have found much difference in the quality of their systems based on the server software and hardware platforms they have used. History I have just bought a Linn Klimax DS/1 renew. Having built and played with a number of systems I ended up buying a Naim NS01 which I used as a big DDC, this was before Naim started producing their 'streamers'. This gave me a good service for a decade before it died. I sent it back to Naim and bought a Sonore Microrendu in the meanwhile, this opened my eyes to what was possible. I then spent time and effort honing my digital front end and got some excellent results for not too much money, in HiFi terms. My last pre-Linn front end included: Audiolinux + NUC backend (LMS), powered by LPSUs via LT3045s >> Audiolinux + NUC backend (Squeezelite), powered by LPSUs via LT3045s >> SingXer F1 >> Audionote 2.1 DAC NUC = Next Unit Computing. Small Intel boxes - not all of them work well in this context. The issue was that I had a system that was spread over three shelves (just the front end), had two 6A LPSUs running 24/7 and a spaghetti of cables. The DS reduced all this to one shelf. Sound Quality The Klimax is more detailed. I suspect the AN is slightly richer, not hugely but rather subtly and with respect to vocals especially. But, BOTH setups give me sonic thrills; if in rather different places. An issue with the DS/1 Renew is that it is a technological dead end, but would I spend the money needed to do an update if I had spent twice as much for a full 2nd hand Klimax? I think not. I would have been equally happy with the dCS NB I think, but that would have cost me an additional £500, second hand; and force me to buy into Apple. It is interesting to listen to familiar tracks and both pick up on added details, but also find other things are hidden deeper in the mix than I think they were. Sound Optimisation Sound Optimisation is a nice trick. The effect is noticeable, and the sound staging is very precise. With studio recordings the music sticks rather closer to the speakers than with the NUC/AN, but with natural acoustic material it is both precise and well spaced. I have played with v1 & v2, having read through the SO Thread. I bought the Renew from an ex-dealer who kindly bought it over and did the v1 settings, which I saved and then used as a base from which to tweak. I will read Paul's thread and then dig deeper. Last night I logged onto the Linn site and set up a few v2 profiles, which i think I prefer at my beginner/superficial level ......BUT, this is a long journey which I am sure will take time and effort. Servers With Audiolinux/NUC I found that I got a real step up with different server software, and where files are hosted. Currently I have three sources: Qobuz; Synology NAS running Minimserver; and Audiostore Prestige 2 (think NUC) running Audiolinux, files on 4 x 512GB USB sticks. Before going into the variation I have tried I have found the Linn to be REMARKABLY unresponsive to server and file changes, all rather small beer. Minimserver: NAS vs NUC/AL = No real difference. NAS Minimserver vs NUC/AL Logitech Media Server = No real difference. With the Naim NS01 there was a definite uptick using wav over flac. I read that potentially Linn sounds better with flac ......not to my ears. With Minimserver I DO find a nice uptick in upscaling files to 24/192; NOT something I have enjoyed historically. I had hoped that flac would work well as with Minimserver you can then flexibly upscale based on the file input, i.e. 16/44.1 > 24/176 & 16/48 > 24/192. In fact I found that what sounded best was ANY wav file upscaled to 24/192. Any thoughts or advise here gratefully received.
