We're all grateful to Chris for the quality of his service, but this surely goes above and beyond? I hope that the sales materialise.

A majority? Reluctant? is figuring? From whence come all these assertions?

I can see that the KDS/3 would appeal to those with high quality passive systems (e.g. with Solos) - it's both a significant upgrade, and significantly less expensive than going to Exakt in any form. And these upgrades offer the prospect of rather attractive Renew boxes. But what proportion of users have an interest (and how many of these are forum members) is surely at present unknowable.

One "interesting" point is the near total silence of the Hi-Fi press so far about Katalyst. If you Google "Linn Katalyst", the first two pages of results (as of 30 minutes ago) do not include a single Hi-Fi journal or news site. While I'm sure that will change, it does beg the question as to whether Linn is taking stealth marketing a bit too far ...

I can't see it in the September issue (not surprising). Perhaps we'll see it in the October issue, when that goes on line.

I've been thinking about the various sub-groups that exist who frequent the Forum and came up with a few more names - the Klimax Kids, the Wikipedians, the Cable Guys, the LK Stalwarts, the Frisbee Spinners, the Analogue Adikts, the Passive Pundits, the DIY Junkies, the Experts (or so they think!), the Exakt Naysayers, the Subs, the Space Cadets and in sub-groups of their own, Briain and Paulssurround!

And let's not forget the biggest sub-group of all, the vast majority of Linn owners that never Post on the Forum and probably don't know it even exists!

Anyone I've missed...? Big Grin

Unidisk SC | Majik LP12 | Trampolin 2 | Lingo 3.
Akurate DSM | Akurate Exaktbox 10 | 2 x Akurate 4200/1 | Exakt dual-mono Keilidhs
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B | IQAudio Pi-DAC+ | Audiolab 8000A | AR28s.

No, no, no - the matching algorithm that places Forum members in sub-groups will determine that for us!

You can't be in the last one - remember I did say " ... and in sub-groups of their own, Briain and Paulssurround".

Oh dear, we're so off topic in this Thread which was craigb's Jane Austen opening post - sorry!

But I've been known to be Paulssurround a while back.
And Craig is figuring out why he decided to join us loonys on the forum.
