The death of MP3

I read Gilads (LINN HiFi MD) last two letters/interviews regarding the death of MP3. One of which was in an interview with Metro.

Apparently He got some heavy handed negative feedback about forecasting the death of MP3. WHY?

I assume that came from 'industry' people with commercial interest (? for Gilad if you are reading) because I don't know any private person whom 'loves their MP3s'.

That's the thing about the digital file ... you don't feel ownership ... it doesn't really exist? WIMP, SPOTIFY, QUODO ... it's all going 16 BIT (CD quality). Even the Studio masters I have which I have spent over 2000 uk on don't feel like anything ... just a file ...

... MP3 is dead ... gone ... eliminated ... finito .. by bye ... who cares? Do you?

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 …
