Try Googling "Linn Series 5 - 530 System"
It could be a start for £ 12,200.00

If you wouldn't mind going for s/h or ex-demo gear than you can put together a system of AEDSM, Majik-I Exaktbox and Akubariks for less than £11K.

RE: Where to start with a streaming system
Are the Akubariks that much better than the Majik 140 ?

RE: Where to start with a streaming system
Fair comment, but how many different iterations of Akubarik are there and which are being suggested ?

Any assistance tracking down a deal like this would be appreciated.

As far as I know there is really only one generation of Akubariks, but the come, or came, in 3 flavours:
Passive, meaning the can be converted to Aktiv or Exakt, but only with external amplification and filters.
Aktiv, meaning they have integrated amplifiers with Aktiv crossover cards
Exakt, also with integrated amplifiers and digital (Exakt) crossovers.

But if you are looking at 140s, do not underestimate the Akudoriks. They reach lower frequencies than the 140s do, and they are very, very good.
Or, if you want to look at secondhand, take a look at the 212s, their predessors.
They too get lower than 140s, even though I think they can use a subwoofer, which happens to be my configuation as well.
Buy a pair of secondhand 212s, pair them with a Majik Exaktbox-I and AEDSM and you'd have a very good stereo system. Add an Exaktbox-sub and a half decent sub and you give the much more expensive Akubariks a good run for their money.


My 2 cents of course. Smile

All much appreciated.

Edited as my iPad seems to post every emoji as a question mark on here, should have been a thumbs up

RE: Where to start with a streaming system
Akubariks though are five-way whilst the Exaktbox-i is only four-way. So that wouldn't work. No problems with the others though - Akudorik, 212, 140 etc etc.

ADs/2 -> Klimax Exaktbox/1 -> Silvers -> 2xKCT/D -> K200 -> Ninka
Exaktbox Sub - BK Sub
