$8640 Cnd. Your price may vary

And will we have to send the speakers back to linn?

This is a swap out of the old Exakt modules for the new Katalyst modules, so the speakers remain with you.

Or was that subroom bathmarine.. I'm mighty confused again.

I had not anticipated the effect of parrots and elephants in this potential upgrade.

This is a new concern!!!

I don't know if introducing a new kat in the house will effect the harmony of the parrots and the elephants. I suspect the parrots may not like kats in the house?

The petal flower technique I find the best you don't want to start listening to anyone on the forum
See the positive comments they make about you
Have to question their judgement Big Grin


I am curious. If you could explain the petal flower technique, I can add that to my list of tools to ignore people Tongue

Good for you.

Politicians are well regarded for their honesty and integrity. Good luck with that!!! Tongue

I'm a bit worried about the cheese issue, can you elaborate on that?

Using TuneDem you will have found that the new Ideal Position for your Katalyst Akubariks is in my house not far from Linn HQ.

The last Missionary we had from this part of the world was David Livingstone and look what happened to him! Smile

Congratulations on acquiring your current set of friends - I'm assuming the "nefarious group of questionable characters" is an oblique reference to the Premier Inn Gang? Big Grin

(2017-09-21 01:47)Paulssurround Wrote:  Do I still need to connect each of the speakers with an ethernet cable or is the music sent wirelessly?

I'd certainly advise running your Katalyst Akubariks wirelessly - that way the noise floor is reduced to zero so no need to worry about all that Space Optimisation stuff! Big Grin

In our version here in Scotland we shake it all about first! Big Grin

(2017-09-21 01:47)Paulssurround Wrote:  Do Katalyst sound waves reflect off the walls and ceiling the same as Exakt sound waves, or do I have to dampen the sound waves with wet sponges taped up around the room?

I thought the previous Court Injunction covered the use of wet sponges?? Smile

Finally some helpful advice!!!

I need your shipping address, to send the wet sponges to your home, so I don't violate my court injunction for nefarious sponges.

The Akubariks are a bit harder to ship.

Yes the nefarious Premier Inn gang lurks in the shadows, trying to recruit new members, while evading the authorities.

Thank you for the advice on doing the hokey pokey, this will come in useful. Tongue

I should have used your credit card. Tongue

You may not have parrots in the house, but you have a finch and budgies.
