    I guess anyone paying ú9,600 will have 'people' do to these mundane tasks for them ;-)
    That's right. I used to have someone put the discs into my CD12... they had to wear white cotton gloves...

    Twonky??

    Some Net Tune users found that the Twonky server was an alternative.
    I could not get Twonky to work reliably on my system, then along came Squeezebox and I have not used the Onkyo for music since.
    If Linn uses the Twonky system I assume the Klimax DS user forum will be rife with angry,disgruntled bickering to the degree that will make some of these threads look like so much bliss.

    Aktually I believe that to be a fakt. I still love the way my 5103 has no "K" in it...

    I may ridicule some of Linn's pronouncements from time to time, but in this case I think they have a point. Consider the numerous threads in these forums about dropout problems, and how nearly all of them are eventually traced to wireless networking problems. I think Linn have made a canny decision to avoid any of that headache.

    On the other hand, given the disruption that would be caused by routing Cat5e/Cat6 through walls, I suspect that many Klimax owners will end up with the server in the listening room. The background noise from a spinning hard disk (even the quietest type) will overwhelm any subtle advantages to be had from the state-of-the-art DAC and analogue circuitry that I assume is inside the Klimax.

    Phil, from your postings here you appear to be that very rare animal - a Linn devotee with a sense of proportion (and a sense of humour). Most Linn afficionados get rather tetchy when the infallibility of Ivor and his products is questioned. I applaud your down-to-earth attitude.
