"What a refreshingly honest blog about listening to music through hi-fi. So happy to see views based upon the enjoyment of music rather than so-called sound 'quality'." - Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design at Mission / Wharfedale

System Evolution

I will keep the system evolution up to date on here.  The earlier years might not be 100% accurate, particularly around the actual dates, but it gives the flavour.  And for those of you who perceive this site as a Linn domain, you can see that it hasn't always been that way and there have been many different manufacturers along the way...

Step this way if you have some time to waste! 


  1. In your current system (June 2018) and 5.1 set up with the Akurate Kontrol, do you have any problem with time delays and distance settings when using the AK DSM for the left and right channnels? Or is it working as if only using the Akurate kontrol? I am asking because I have just ordered a AK DSM that I will use in my system. I am playing a lot of music DVD:s through my Akurate Kontrol.

  2. The delay on the Kontrol is set to maximum, but its still not perfectly time aligned. Fine for movies (which I used it for), not good for surround music (which I don't use it for)
