How a cornet can get you killed!



Translation (as good as it goes): In the picture we see five Men. Four of the Men hate the fifth and the threat of violence hangs in the air. The reason is obvious; the little Man to the right is playing cornet, shit-loud, right in the face of the others.

He has even taken a belt over His kidneys which allows Him to come up in abnormal volume levels without any flaws in the performance. We do not know how long he has been there and played, but everyone who heard the potential sound pressure of a cornet, at distance of two decimetres, understands that every note is cutting through the bone and marrow of the poor other musicians .The man who is most vulnerable and whose eardrums have already sprung a leak is sitting down with an impressively bad posture, like a lost man praying. He sits poised at the edge of the chair with thighs pointing down and with prominent shoulders and arms hanging almost paralysed by His sides. Right behind him, we see a guy with some sort of women's polo with too short sleeves and a majestic sparse moustache. Why no one told him that it is a completely stillborn project to attempt to control a handsome moustache when you have thinner facial hair than most short ladies around  in their seventies, I don't know!Beside him is a guy who we do not see much of, whom has more than a frown, it's a look of deepest distaste.Next to him, however, we find the guy that looks most likely to explode. His prominent face and intense gaze suggests that he probably will be the one, of all the gentlemen, who steps forward and draws a line on the whole masquerade, perhaps by politely but firmly pushing the cornet up the blowers rectum.

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 …
