Cool Have long before the new KDS/1 blow all the reviewers mind ?
Smile

As the title says.

The first one was close to being the finest , now it sounds twice as good??

Il delighted hearing what the have to say aaout it now after both the implementation of Cara, dynamik PS , and now the new 50 % lower bit boards with god only knows hifi magic in there.

I've heard it at the factory and it is very good; I've even ordered the update for myself. Mind you, I don't yet know if it will prove to be the ultimate streaming device as I've not compared it side by side with my Sonos yet! Tongue Big Grin

KDS/1 (music) + ADSM (AV) -> KK/1 -> 350A (and a miniDSP -> 345 time aligned rear-corner sub)
Bedroom: KDS/0 -> Lejonklou Kikkin -> 2250/D -> 212
Kitchen (soon; the wiring's done and the kit is in stock): MDSI -> 104C
Also: MDSI -> Shahinian Arc (now installed at my mum's house)
Sonos (nah; just kidding)! :-)

Since my Renew deal went foul (due to burglary) at a time when I'd already sold my Majik DS, I'm listening to a Sonos ZP90 for the time being and that really does take some adjusting ... Sad

Ouch, ouch, ouch! Yes, Sonos ZP80 really is pretty grim (though I've never heard the ZP90). If you happen know anyone with a spare Linn Numerik sitting about (and thus that you can borrow) it makes a massive difference to the Sonos (ZP80/Numerik is what I used pre-DS days and it's a hell of a lot better than using the Sonos's analogue output).
