Yep, there's a sub-group for you as well! Big Grin

As we all know there is little mileage in asking Linn Marketing a detailed question and expecting an answer. Over the years many of us have tried and failed to get inside the mindset, so let's hope that CraigB will be our window in the future?

I also note CraigB that you mention " ... single malt would be preferred", but as you know, from a marketing perspective, single malt only flows one way i.e. from the company to the customer! You must have loads of Highland Park stashed away somewhere?

The question you've been asking yourself with increased regularity, at odd moments, panting through the extra game of handball, when you ran for the plane in Delhi, when you sat up in bed last night and hit the floor in the office this morning. The question that is in the back of your throat, choking the blood to your brain, ringing in your ears over and over as you put it to yourself.

Although the answer was 42, the question of course was what do you get when you multiply 6 by 9? Now that the answer has been upgraded by Linn to 50 (via 47), as BY has pointed out, this doesn't work in base 13 where 50 = 65 in base 10?? Sad

Of course it took Deep Thought 7½ million years to work out the answer - how long will Linn take to integrate Katalyst with existing Exakt technology. Hopefully my Akurate Exaktbox 10 can be upgraded to an Akurate Katalyst Exaktbox 10?? Smile

Any news from marketing on non-Linn Exakt speaker conversion kits please? The recent excursion into KEF looks interesting and will probably need conversion kits, but I'm still waiting for the kit for the Twenty.26. Is it stuck in a pipeline somewhere?

Thanks!

Don't want to go too off-topic from Renew but I will quickly do my best to shed some light on this...

The KEF speakers are very interesting as it is KEF themselves who designed the crossovers and conversion kits, and will be supplying them.

They did this using our new suite of Exakt tools which allows any manufacturer to create Exakt filters for any loudspeaker! My advice to anyone wanting to go Exakt with a third-party loudspeaker would be to contact the manufacturer of said speakers directly and encourage them to get involved in the same way KEF has.

As for the twenty.26 kit? It's available to order! Smile

RE: Renew for New Klimax DS and Klimax DSM
I find myself in unfamiliar territory Rolleyes

No point in me upgrading my KDS2 to KDS3 as I'm thinking of going Exakt with KEBs.

No point in me going Exakt with KEBs as the new Katalyst variants will be released soon(ish).

So for once, Linn announcing a product upgrade has STOPPED me spending money (at least in the short term) Big Grin

Urrhhh and there's me thinking good news awaits.... Sad Still - I've done four demos in 24 hours. This afternoon it was a home demo of KDS3 into Kisto into Solos into 242's. Tonight it was KDS3 into KK, in Dyn Solos in Klimax 350P, very impressed. PM Keith for his verdict

But this was to be expected wasn't it? But still, the majority of expensive setups will be non-Exakt, so the new KDS(M) has a lot of potential, except on this forum where a reluctant majority is figuring out how to Exaktify their setup.
So I think you'll be getting a lot of thumbs up when the Akurate Exaktboxes get Kathalysted.
