Profound thoughts from the year of our Lord 1697
As William Congreve wrote in The Mourning Bride, 1697:

Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd,
And, as with living Souls, have been inform'd,
By Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.




Jeepers, I feel that way every time I crank up my LP12...

As there is meanwhile a considerable gap between Akurate, and Magik - at least by budget - Linn might fill it with 3 way speakers (magick number, as in: less amps!), and Exakted electronics. I nominate to call it the Kongreve level, should this ever happen.

Nice quote and photo. Thx for the inspiration LD100!

On the contrary, there would be a lot of digits involved, and having more digits would definitely have improved both the sound stage and dynamik range. Big Grin

You are quite welcome, I feel the quote correctly sums up the concept that it's all about the music. Smile
