Fantastic insight into music from David Gray ...

I remember buying David Gray's 'White Ladder' probably around 1998/99. I loved it ... ''Babalon'', fantastic track which really gives an insight into the Man Himself ... whom ''wears his heart on his sleeve'', some days it goes well, others not so well. I thought about this track when I watched the Youtube clip above yesterday. 

Everything is about His mood, the way He feels, His surroundings ... really great artist!

I think it was Macy Gray that I heard on the radio calling David a ''fantastic, sensitive beautiful man'' after She listened to 'White ladder'. It was the Irish that first caught onto David Gray and when He attended ''Witness Festival'' (Free Download)
I don't think He He could believe the response He received ... 

I was lucky enough to be there to watch His head shaking piano playing and listen to song after song. He had been warned of fines for playing over time but the crowd wanted more and David just played extra song after extra song .. a great memory ...

My first impression of LINN's NEW Akubarik's

Firstly I am all in favour of compact systems so for me it's a great advantage that they are fully active. Technical information you can get from the designer on the following video link

I can pick a few points about the design. I don't like blue lights ... I'd hoped it would be smaller to fit more of my customers that have smaller rooms and apartments with neighbours. But actualythey look great, very tidy indeed. A good start and very interesting but how do they perform?

The obvious reference systems are Akurate 242 Aktiv with LINN Akurate amps or Klimax 350A's reference speakers.

Straight off the Akurate 242's can't compete on the bottom end. The Akubariks deliver controlled base no matter the volume. Whether the 3k array performs better than on aktive 242, I don't know but it's probably quite similar. It is very good. It's all very good and well balanced. At no point did I experience any issues with frequencies …
