RE: Akodoriks sound too clinical
Glad you liked it Evo. The beauty of Tidal for sure. Yes both albums are quite good. Saw Gino 10 years ago in Vancouver when he was promoting the album to about 50 people as part of the CDs launch. Just a solo with recorded music but his voice sure kept you spellbound.

RE: Akodoriks sound too clinical
UPDATE: Taking advice of the knowledgeable Linn forum members, I have now rewired the rats nest, and added tinfoil to all the cat5 cables. Next steps will be to find the ideal position of speakers....Also bought a laser measure! Should be all set to start SO soon, would have been quicker but the weather here over the last 3 weeks has been amazing so outside a lot.

Oh, any tips given the room on where to start positioning, that front cabinet below the tv seems to make choices somewhat limited wrt distance from wall. Ideal seems challenging right out of the gate.

How does it sound?

Can you describe whether the bass is tight, musical and detailed, the mids muddy or clean, the female vocals smooth or shouty, the piano harmonic and the musical notes hang in the air?

RE: Akodoriks sound too clinical
First impressions before my wife took it over (hmmmm) is better all around from original but not as airy and detailed as ideal position. Bass is better but still a bit sloppy. Your change Paul to the first config helped with base tightness and presence for sure. Female vocals still need some work I think (but i'm picky on that front).

Again though, I havn't really given it a critical listen yet, it turned really nice out so celebrating all the work with a glass or two of sparkling on back patio. I have about half of your reference tracks so will use that as a guide and report back.

Thanks for your interest and help Paul, appreciate it!

Hi Craig,

Sorry for the delay, with Thanksgiving on Monday and Janice's birthday yesterday.

Probably the best step is to contact each other by FaceTime, Skype, WeChat or by phone, so we can try to get a better result.

I have a lot of ideas we can try, if you are willing?

Please send me your phone number or contact by private message.

Cheers
Paul
