Well, after the first 10 seconds of being speechless, I roared with laughter. When would you realise your mistake and ask for the turntable back and bring me mine! But I'm keeping this one - tough luck! I started with Moaning the Art Blakey classic and it is a really heavy disc audiophile pressing. Amazing. Chick Corea, Metheney, Joan Armatrading, Bobby Womack, The Stones, even Sade sounded better. In the past, I got in the upgrade spiral and rarely felt that speaker cables or platter mats really made a difference but this cartridge, bearing motor and service make a very very noticeable improvement. Thanks, Gentlemen!
Annoyingly been out today - just got back armed with some new vinyl and CDs - so listening and ripping!
Goes without saying outstanding experience today with Ian and shame he had to make 2 journeys but vinyl is on and “do not disturb” sign up for the next several weeks/months!
Will ring later on Thursday thats if I can turn the music off !!!.
The DR seems to separate the music / recording more than before Instruments seem to sound even more lifelike Bass is more controlled, more defined, more enjoyable but still powerful The 300 sounds "more powerful" than before The 300 sounds more capable and seems to cope with complicated pieces of music with much greater ease It feels like I've just upgraded to the next Amp up Naim seem to have done all this without loosing any of the "Naimness" that I love Voices are even more 3d My speakers have disappeared even more The DR seems to have made the music more engaging Even my TV sounds better (TV is fed through Naim system)
Linn all set up and sounding fantastic. I think it was Iain who came over and did it and did an excellent job. Also helped tighten up a few bolts on my speakers, so really pleased with the customer service.
Many Thanks for the repair and service, I have been listening to the sweet sounding LP12 and I too am very happy with the Hana SL, it has brought life to many old records / outstanding on a new LP just bought.
Yes, I'm gradually getting to know my new system. It certainly delivers on several fronts - not just the sound quality but also the convenience of having so many music choices at one's finger tips.
Please thank Iain for a cracking job.
..In one word STUNNING..
...the NDS is sounding awesome and makes the CDS2 sound broken. Who'd ever have thought this would be the case when the CDS2 was born and was "one of the best CD players in the world"!
Having the time of my life re-hearing my music now I'm Exakted. Randomly selecting from my collection since, I'm hearing everything with new ears. Really hearing it for the first time. The clarity, precision, balance and overall aural experience is truly astonishing. Thank you, and Linn!
.....thanks for the invoice and the time last Saturday, looking forward to getting it all done this weekend, this may just be the prelude to an avalanche of requests for help when we find we're picking up the local constabulary instead of Pink Floyd. By the way have you listened to Tim Hecker, I remember you mentioned a couple of bands you'd been listening to recently that would be in the same genre to this artist; Ravedeath 1972 is especially good.
Just a quick note to thank you for the superb service and advice, culminating in Audio Nirvana - a pair of Bowers and Wilkins 802 Diamonds. As you know, it has been a journey, including discovering the Naim NDS and auditioning various other bits of equipment. What I particularly appreciate is your ability to provide an opportunity to discover and choose a personalised system, without pressure, and enjoying the process yourselves! Nothing has been too much trouble, and I would recommend the experience to any music lover. I wish you all the best for many more years....
...many thanks for the service you carried out, together with the fitting of the new cartridge to my turntable. I am absolutely delighted with the improvement in sound quality compared to the old K9 cartridge, it's wonderful.
...just listened to Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' played through the new system in our front room - sounds truly wonderful and epic!
I am enjoying a wonderful new world of musical discovery, I hadn't really thought it would be this different and rewarding!! So many thanks.
Thanks for doing such a terrifically neat job - I see that the spagetti junction has now turned into something very tidy! thanks a million Iain - I really appreciate your work - brilliant workmanship!
I just wanted to say thanks very much for your support, knowledge, style and flair in indulging my various whims en route to a hi-fi upgrade and recent purchase. You were incredibly helpful and professional, and very pleasant company to boot; it was a pleasure doing business with you!
The Spendors were a superb recommendation and sound absolutely fine. After 5 sets of speaker in three years, I'm happy at last. Thanks
Just a note in response to my having run the Linn Majik DS-I for a week now - I can only say I am very impressed, the sound is Amazing.
First of all the LP12 is probably sounding better than it ever has … so you have done an excellent job on that front. I have had to be dragged kicking and screaming away from my record collection which I have been revisiting with no little enthusiasm
It's run in nicely now and sounds better than it's ever sounded! Best £175 I've ever spent on my system. Thanks a million
Many thanks for your help and advice, a real pleasure dealing with you. I haven't had the chance to set thing up yet but at the moment I'm getting a lot of pleasure just looking at the Linn LP12 sitting proudly on top of the Quadraspire stand. It looks fantastic. When I think I almost sold it a few years ago then something told me not to..
Thank you for your help & advice. The hi-fi sounds great and I have been listening to it each night which I think is driving the girlfriend insane.
You recently serviced my LP12 and fitted a Dynavector DV20XL. Yesterday was my birthday so I fired up the Linn for the first time. It sounds superb!
Hi, just to say a huge thank you for doing such a good job, I expected it to be better but it is like a new deck, it sounds fantastic, better than ever before. I'm sure the Rega Exact is helping but as each day goes by it just gets better and better.
