RE: How do you use your remote?
Hello Mel

1. I tend to switch on my Linn streamer and pre-amp using the remote and I use the remote to switch them off after listening.
2. I use the remote to turn the system on, then select what I’m going to playing via an ipad Air. For volume adjustments, I tend to use the remote but might use the ipad if I’ve got it to hand whilst listening ie if I’m on the internet or using email.
3. I do use the numbered buttons on the remote control to select specific tracks but sometimes will select the desired track from the Kazoo playlist on the iPad as well.
4. I have remote e.

I'm Mel, the newest member of MCIT here at Linn and also to this forum! So please be nice Smile

To make using our products as smooth as possible we’d like to know what you do with them!

1. What is the typical interaction with your system using your remote?
I.e. When turning your device on/off, selecting/ skipping tracks, adjusting volume levels etc, do you gravitate towards phone/iPad/handset/front panel? If so, why?
2. From off to listening detail the process you do to get your music playing.
I.e. I would bring it out of standby on the front panel, sit down and chose an album from my iPad.
3. Do any of you use the number keypads to select tracks?
4. What system and corresponding remote do you use? Have a look at the pictures attached and let me know which one you’ve got! (a,b,c,d,e,f, or g)

Appreciate the feedback

Mel

1. For music - use ipad or laptop (kinsky) to turn on and set up play list. When listening the ipad is generally plugged in to keep charge up and displaying album artwork. Will then use remote to pause, turn volume up / down, etc.

1. For television - use remote to turn on, select input and adjust volume

2. see above

3. very rare

RE: How do you use your remote?
Hi Mel, Welcome to Linn. Happy to have you on the team. Great question. Sorry I didn’t find it until now.

1. System is usually left on (sleep mode). I select source (and TV channels), adjust volume/mute and press play/pause on remote. Rarely use skip forward or back in playlist on the remote. Music is selected on vinyl or files from NAS/Tidal in Kazoo. Kazoo most often controlled from iPad and there I also adjust volume, select playing order and control multi room sharing. When playing files I gravitate towards controlling everything in Kazoo. Playing vinyl or TV I gravitate towards using the Logitech remote.

2.
A. Decide wether to play vinyl, files or watch TV.
B. Choose source on remote or in Kazoo (for files or Tidal).
C. Choose records on vinyl, select channel on TV (from remote) or select music files in Kazoo.
D. Put needle into the groove or press play in Kazoo and sit down.
E. Adjust volume and enjoy.

Very rarely use buttons on the control panels, and then only to mute volume playing vinyl/cleaning the needle.

3. Number keypads only used to select channels for TV.

4. I use Klimax DS and Kontrol as control points in my system (connected by the RS232 interface). Usually controlled via a programmable Logitech Harmony remote (to include TV system on same remote), Kazoo on iPad/iPhone/PC or Linn rem 018 (for Sneaky DS in kitchen).

Cheers, mats

RE: How do you use your remote?
1. What is the typical interaction with your system using your remote?
Turn on, adjust volume and skip source. For most operations I do prefere this to a phone/pad as it is signifficantly faster and easier for these operations.
The programmable keys and radio button are also used every day.
Recently also found out the fast-forward button on my remote (g).

2. From off to listening detail the process you do to get your music playing.
Only use the iPad/iPhone (or the mac) when accessing Tidal
Occasiannly also use front panel (as it it next to my LP12)

3. Do any of you use the number keypads to select tracks?
Use it often for selecting radio stations. Sometimes for track but seldom.

4. What system and corresponding remote do you use?
