🔹 FEELING_ZEN, DAVE J,....Unfortunately,the truth is also,that you can demonstrate in different ways the results you want.
I think many older people here,..Who has been with a while and gained experience know.
But less knowledgeable does not know this, and then falls into the merchant's hands.
We must unfortunately not forget,that when money is involved,there are traders who can be a little less serious....se only on the "LP12 Radikal Problem" thread,where there are still traders (and even Linn) who claim that it does not affect soundquality,that the Radikal-engine takes in the Trampoline foot 😵.
I myself have been scammed by such a demonstration in 1986,I should briefly tell you..
Had 1986 an LP12,Naim Nait and Linn Kan. Should Upgrade to pre and power amplifier (Nac 32.5 Nap 250).
Linn had just arrived with LK1 and LK2,..these were always plugged in and turned on in the store's demo room.
We first listened to Linn LK1, LK2......then Naim 32.5..250 was connected in.
The dealer immediately began playing on these,...cold and unheated 32.5.. 250.
Of course,..Linn LK1,LK2 played much better, so I bought Linn instead of Naim.
He may have used other tricks too,I don't know.
Today I know many such tricks myself.
I was not as knowledgeable 1986,as I was a few years later.
I can say that,when I a year later in Stockholm, could hear a LP12,Nac 32.5..NAP 250 with Linn Kan.....well then I was really damned,because it played incredibly much better than my Linn LK1,LK2.
The same trader,he has sold Linn since 1986 (then he ended with Naim).....has now started selling Naim Atom.
This Atom he demonstrates with Linn K200 speaker cable at 2m.
This speaker cable in a Naim Atom completely kills the music,it is clear that customers buy Linn Majik DSM instead.
Compare the Linn Majik DSM with the Linn K200 speaker cable,towards Naim Atom with Naca5 3, 5m,and the Naim Atom completely crushes Linn Majik DSM.
In addition,...Atom is € 700:- cheaper than Majik DSM here in Sweden.
One can of course speculate on why he does so,...probably because he earns more money if he gets to sell a Linn Majik DSM instead.
As I said at the beginning,there are many ways to demonstrate the differences on......and all are not serious.
Therefore,it is good with the forums,so more get the knowledge needed...before they invest their money.
