Linn's Summer Promotion 2017
To paraphrase the opening post of this thread: https://forums.linn.co.uk/bb/showthread.php?tid=33682

Now that the small matter of the General Election is out the way, Linn owners can return to a question with far-reaching implications for the quality of their music life...

What will Linn's summer promotion be?

RE: Linn's Summer Promotion 2017
I wool like to upgrade my Akubariks and Exaktboxes to Kattle-lyst, but it is not available for the Akurate lineup yet.

How about ewe?

I hope Linn release Katalyst for Akurate level components by Christmas? Fleece navidad.

I'll just have to graze in the meadow until Linn releases the upgrade

Exakt Surround 5.0:
Katalyst Akubariks, AEDSM, AkuKat Exaktbox 6/4200 for 225 Centre, Majik Exaktbox I for 212 Surrounds, OPPO 203 on StillPoints, Cat8
Power: Environmental Potentials 2460, Shunyata Denali, Zitron Cobras, Alpha Digitals
Room Acoustics: SPACE, SubDude HT's, Acoustic Panels

Wasn't expecting this ovine turn of events but clearly if Linn offered cheap Katalyst upgrades we'd be flocking to the dealers like lambs to the slaughter.

You could have installed the same catalyst, then the update would have been spared. Since I have lost my job, I will never be able to afford exact and catalytic. Cry. But as it sounds with me, I do not need it at the moment.
Maybe Linn has mercy on me and sends me the upgrade. Please ask for address via PM.

Now that the small matter of the General Election is out the way, Linn owners can return to a question with far-reaching implications for the quality of their music life...

What will Linn's summer promotion be?

Now, as the ghost appears to be out of the bottle, I'm plagued by the question: Should I trade-in my obsolete pre-amp and put an Akurate Exaktbox between my KRDSM and C6100 / active Espekish AV5140? Going for a Klimax Exaktbox is by far out of reach budget-wise, and a Radikal to up my LP12 is apparently not eligible with this summer promo.
Any thoughts?

Cheers CW

What is the av6400? the reason I ask is that if it is a surroundprocessor of some sort, be sure it can handle the delay that Exakt will introduce.

Outsch, forgive me, 5140 would have been the correct number (corrected above) Listening, and typing on a tablet apparently leaves no room for thinking ... ;-)

It would seem a shame to relegate a KRDS to a mere bit-pusher - and the £1000 you save off an Akurate Exaktbox will eventually be lost to the urge for Katalyst (assuming it happens). I definitely wouldn't do it without an extensive, preferably home demo. I bet it'll be a lot closer than you might think...
