Yes, it is true, landing next week. Smile

But this is not a SPACE optimization tour, at least it is not planned to be.

I hope to meet up with you later in the month, when visiting nrwatson, ukandrew and Peter57

Great success for your demo days with Exact Surround and the LP-12

Hello Sound Hound. It went well thanks. It's still all sent up if you'd like to have your own personal demo.

I hope Paul Surround will hear it when he's over to compare - a better wordsmith than I and an end user. Maybe someone from Linn may hear - a Philbo southern tour?

So, all the people that showed up aren't Linn Forum people, all had Oppo's that we supplied and some had Kaleidescape systems.

If I'm allowed to review myself here goes - more detail where it matters to make a movie seem more real - if you can hear differences in DS performance levels through the last 10 yrs then you'll get what Exakt achieves in Surround over a Unidisk DVD /Kisto combo albeit newer HD formats.

Having an ADSM or KDSM with analogue out (full feature DSM not the Exakt only cut down version) as useful for initial passive rear surround adding a legacy power amplifier to assist with cost, defeating the object but allows the fun of building a system up.

Konfig seems to work well on 7.1 with room tuning a retired guys dream come true.

Hope that's an OK review and look forward to seeing other Linn dealers events unfold and watch Linn's marketing department go crazy creative.

Even if your two channel focussed you ought to get to hear what Linn have been up to.

Good night and don't dream - one of the test movies

Thanks Chris, however it's a bit of hike from up here in Cheshire (But nothing compared to Paulssurrounds travel distance !!)
I've no doubt the system sounds awesome. The only concern I have is with the centre speaker. Being the most important speaker in any surround system, a diminutive Majik 112 may not be able to truly deliver when attempting to reproduce, for instance, James Earl Jones's barritone ? That said, my Solo/225 fairs pretty well, and so it's not beyond the realms of possibilty that a smaller Exakted speaker could provide the depth/realism demanded. I look forward to tracking the progress of this groundbreaking tech Wink

Hi Chris,

It sounds like you had a successful day, and all parties were treated to an excellent experience.

I am constantly amazed by what an incredible improvement Exakt Surround is compared to my previously great sounding pre-Exakt surround system. It has brought movies and multichannel music to life, with an experience that can only be described as what it must have sounded like in the recording studio?

I do hope to drop by your store to hear your Exakt Surround system next week. Smile

I hope to meet up someday, when visiting Sunbeam again.

It would definitely be worthwhile to drive the centre channel with a 225 or better, using an Akurate Exaktbox 6 and a 4200. Big Grin
