RE: AEbox10 Surround
I don't know how popular Exakt Surround is yet, in terms of overall sales for Linn?

I imagine Linn has to prioritize their resources to getting the best bang for the buck from their software engineers, and it may not be as high a priority as other projects at the moment.

I have been enjoying it immensely, and fully believe it is a very worthwhile endeavour.

With the latest Davaar, Exakt Surround has reached a new level again, with better integration of the centre channel speaker, at least in my system.

I have a sense that Linn is working on something very big at the moment, that is taking up a lot of their resources?

RE: AEbox10 Surround
Perhaps trying to get Katalyst into Akurate is taking up most of their development time.

RE: AEbox10 Surround
Maybe a strange question again :-D :

Would it probably be possible and has anyone of you tried to use a stereo pair of speakers (Katan's for instance) together with an aeb 10 and use it as one centerspeaker by assigning them both as center channel in konfig?

It would be a nice way to use my aeb 10 for the exakt center channel until Linn has made it possible to use my 225 together with the eab10.....

Cheers
Bart

RE: AEbox10 Surround
I just now updated (beta) to Konfig 4.34.73 then of course I opened Konfig to see whats new.

Holy Cow! There are 1x speakers available for the AEB10, meaning I can finally set up my 225 as an exakt center channel. Exakt surround here I come......

Assuming that what I'm seeing is real and I can make it work Smile

That is great news.

Enjoy setting it up.

It is worth the effort.

Hi,

That's indeed very good news!
My last question can then be canceled :-D

RE: AEbox10 Surround
Well, I've got my system torn apart and things are not looking good at the moment.

In Konfig I've got the added AEB10 set up to run the 225 as center with Penta amped filter (using a 5100 for the map) but in SO+ it won't take any dimensions for speaker location/placement.

I've told the ADSM1 in Konfig that the analog L/R outputs are for Komponent 104 surround L/R (I've actually in ceiling 104C's) but same situation, SO+ won't take any dimensions for speaker location/placement.

If that wasn't enough.... I'm also trying to hook up my exaktbox sub and while the rear indicator LED light(s, 1 of 4) shows LED #0 being red indicating no power when my network patch cable is plugged in, and the blue light (assuming its blue) on the front of the unit is dark. I've tried a couple different power cords without change. As this exaktsub box has no on/off switch, is it always on or does it turn on when detecting a signal? I'm fearful its DOA. Or put another way, if it's plugged into a power (mains) outlet does the blue light come on and stay on?

I'm glad I was spoiled yesterday for my birthday or I'd be very unhappy right now. Tongue

Are you using the most up to date version of Konfig?

The power light on the Exakt Subbox does not power on , and show the blue light until everything is plugged in and turned on.

I have sent you an email.
