Everything running without a glitch until Duelund went into the midrange. I went back to vintage and it clearly sounded better with the CD player. Just switched to the Lp12 and then going to put back in the Duelund.
I know my caps are bad (with out a doubt) but can not understand why a worn out vintage cap sounds better with the Karik in the midrange. I THINK it is just combo of the Duelund revealing the weak source and sounding digital.
This has confused me all along as my Lp12 has not sounded as good as the Karik and nobody ever feels that way. I once thought of just selling the Karik and not even having any digital it was just so far behind.
Still experimenting. Ideally I can get things back to the Kairn/Klout with the Lp12. I have all my money in the Lp12 and can not understand why things went bad. (following that Linn theory of spend all your money on the source)
To make matters worse the vintage amp just blew up!!!! Scared the crap out of me! Smoke rolling up by the transformers.
Thank Goodness I was just sitting here. Could have burn't the house down!!! Smoke rolling up out of the transformer and power output tube area.
Maybe I was playing with fire running an antique 24/7. Well actually I was!
Any idea of what could cause it? I think the phono stage has a defect or maybe a short and caused it to short out. It seemed to make funny sounds on the phono stage?
It happened right when writing this.
