SkyTv-dish or modern Scandinavian design?

OK ... one part of me is saying ''Sky-TV parabol'' but hey, I live in Sweden and appreciate Scandinavian design and it's the first thing I have seen from B&O that looks Scandinavian. I mean their other speakers look like something from 'Doctor Who' .. home-made in the 80's ...

This however is as Scandinavian as a Bruno Mathsson chair ... I really hate to admit it, I mean I have never understood B&O design. Please note I haven't actually seen one in real life ... but bloody hell ... I think I like it ... do I?

It claims ''Sterio-sound'' from a single unit ... Hmnnn ...



P.S: no we don't sell B&O so please don't call asking for one. It will just upset me! ;)

Laugh ... don't bring any drunken Swedes home though ... they might try and sit in it!

LINN have great new features with the new HDMI 2.0 board

With 4K content now available across a range of services, customers can now get great sound to match the high resolution of their screens.
From today every Klimax DSM, Klimax Exakt DSM, Akurate DSM, Akurate Exakt DSM and Majik DSM will ship with our new HDMI 2.0 board, offering full 4K support.

This HDMI board will also support HDR for better dynamic colour range, CEC for interoperability, and ARC to return audio from the television to the DSM.

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 http://vimeo.com/search?q=akubarik

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 …
