Linn Aktiv Studio Rig

I have a Linn speaker based desktop system too. I don't have Linn electronics though. Linn monitors work great for this application. I have the Kan MK1. Its paired up with a Velodyne ULD15 sub.

The stereo sounds very "hifi" (in a bad way) at the moment.Installed the Sylvania 12BH7 tubes in place of the Daystrom tubes yesterday. Tube is NOS meaning it has zero hours on it...

Hi Chad,I was very happy with it. I sold it awhile ago when I sold my analog setup. This was my only tonearm, so I didn't get to really compare the OL with anything else. However, I thought...

Hey Line,Nope, no changes. I did buy a new Sony PC. It's the kind with the water cooling instead of fan cooling, so it's very quiet. One of these days, I am going to use it as a music serve...
