Thanks Pedro2 I will do. It's not often I act so impulsively but there's no risk involved really and at worst I get to A/B them at home and see which I prefer.Pedro2 said:Will be great to compare the two sets of actives knowing that the Adams can be returned without hitting your wallet.
I think there will be a number of us looking forward to the comparison and I’m keeping an open mind on which one you’ll prefer.
ps got a hefty delay on the Akurate upgrade as Linn are refusing to accept any sent in for 6 weeks from dealers who don’t do the full range of kit. Talk about 1st and 2nd class service....
Enjoy your listening experiments!
Your comments about the service from Linn are disturbing but, frankly, unsurprising. Your experience and that of others, coupled with their stingy product lifespan support, is actually enough to turn me away from them completely. I think they forget (probably not) that their products are sold at a premium and excellent customer service isn't too much to expect.
I have been seriously tempted to ditch them but simply haven't been able to identify a replacement with the SQ and features I want (good control app, Tidal/Qobuz integration and over the air updates etc). The nearest I have heard personally was the Auralic Altair but I am sure there are other quality streamers out there.
I'll report back in a few days when the Adam speakers arrive and I have had time to give them a whirl.
