A little treat on east 25th Street NYC ...

Firstly I just love this sign. It's hard to see from the photo but it was a fantastic gold print, slightly beaten no doubt from the NYC winter ... just so simple, so genuine and strangely enough enticing. You immediately think ''this is what I have come to NYC for ... this is what you find in NYC!''

So what do you get when you step in? 

Well you get the sound of an amazing vinyl of course played on some old but amazingly 'right' sounding HiFi components and no you don't recognise the music but you want it immediately and they know your going to ask ... you seen the sign, the window, you fealt the calm when you came in, can see them behind the computer ''checking out cool stuff, cool gigs, reviews ... old instruments'' whilst simultaneously keeping a finger tapping in perfect time with the music ... 

This is a place of knowledge ... the people who know come here! The people who know work here. The people who know that work here know if you know what they know ... just by looking at you! 

Luckily I had my 4 year old with me to create a diversion and it's written all over my face I'm diggin this place, I'm impressed and I know they know ... Yip I have a double 'get out of jail card'! This Scott knows the score ...

You understand immediately they know everything there is to know about the album playing, they are going to tell you all about it ... the whole story ... because they know ... they are probably going to reference some other bands, some influences and look at you straight in the eyes for confirmation you are following and confirmation ... that you are into records, that you know enough about music to warrant sharing this privileged information! Yip it's a 100% genuine NYC, Hip record store ...

You gotta LOVE it ...

P:S it's just a stones throw from The Fish bar ... now rated in my top 10 bars of all time!

It's that time again ... Vinyl fabriken färdigt, Linn shop påbörjat ... nu kör vi :)

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 …

LINN have great new features with the new HDMI 2.0 board
