RE: The better Exakt upgrade for Akudoriks: Exaktbox-I vs. Dorik stands
Of course, Exaktbox 10 and a couple of Majik 4100s gets you a long way and likely to be available used for somewhat less cost than the stands.
Or, 2x Exaktbox 6 and a couple of Majik amps means you could site them close to the speakers to minimise cabling, but will take you closer to the stands in price, even used.

Neither of these have Katalyst of course (yet) but do have the advantage of much more flexibility for future options (which seems not to be a priority at the moment).

RE: The better Exakt upgrade for Akudoriks: Exaktbox-I vs. Dorik stands
Hello,

last week I had the chance to hear Akudorik Exakt (Dorik stands) pre Katalyst at Ripcaster in Checkendon - thanks Jon Nelson.
The performance of these small speakers was simply astounding. I know them from my home, but with the Dorik stands they play on a different level and it's simply a beautiful solution with minimised use of cables.
That now all Dorik stands also come with Katalyst is in my opinion just what sells it for me, as that marks currently the technological pinnacle for LINN equipment.

I was considering also the other potential path via Exaktbox-I and there is nothing really wrong with it - it's at a third of the cost of Dorik - but the overall package of Dorik incl. Katalyst is just much better.
Will make the upgrade next year and surely report.

Regards, Maik.
