Kat looks to be the favoured option. I would need to dem to understand the difference as I had previously been told that this is NOT as significant an upgrade for the Akudoriks as it is for the Akubarik.

Just a thought.... Because your system is already pretty amazing, you could start the "Linn Upgrade Fund" whereby poor people like me could apply for funding to upgrade and you get the Karma points for helping those in need...

Now why didn’t I think of that :0)

Ah. Missed the Urika II reference - my mistake. Streaming is better with the KEDSM, and that might have an effect with the Urika II as well, but clearly the case for Katalyst is even stronger than I thought.

Does the fact that I listen to vinyl as my main source not sway toward continuing to upgrade my deck?

The original question seemed to be either upgrade your AEDSM for KEDSM, or Katalyst AND the deck upgrade. They are a similar outlay (the latter being slightly higher depending on what you can get for the AEDSM cf the deck components).
If it's now a question of either Katalyst OR deck - I defer to LP12 experts!

Given all previous advice, that is now the question my friend.
