New Stones vinyl
The proof of the pudding is in the eating.While I would be especially interested of new reissues being mastered from analog, the record companies have decided that it's just too expensive and dangerous to be sending those tapes around, when they e... 
Linn ikemi balanced output
FWIW:Linn didn't believe too heavily in balanced circuitry at the time - but put this in because it was becoming 'required' to be taken seriously. This is not to say the balanced is worse than the single-ended, it in fact might be quite a sight be... 
I have a problem with my Linn DMS Isobariks.
You're just going to have to muscle them out. They should be removable with "normal" tools (of course the definition of an "abnormal tool" is any tool I don't have) ;^) If memory serves, there may be a cosmetic frame around the driver that masks ... 
alternated method for storing compact discs
I use a system that's similar to the discsox, which has been very convient in terms of saving space and taking a bunch of discs on trips by slapping the sleeves into a travel wallet is a cinch, but I have to say the wear on my discs has been notic...

Ani Difranco
I think the best way to buy Ani CDs is at random, one or two at a time. They can't all be favorites, but everything she does is worthwhile. Take a chance, pick one up without auditioning it first! 
Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint
My parents saw this show in Ann Arbor - I don't think they had even heard of Elvis Costello. They both thought it was one of the best things they had ever seen. I would be seriously jelous if I hadn't caught a BRILLIANT T-Bone Burnett show at The ... 
NPR : ALL SONGS CONSIDERED
I highly recommend the stream of KCRW's music programs, most notably "Morning Become Eclectic."www.kcrw.org 
Anyone into GOMEZ?
BRING IT ONOne of my favorite albums ever - something I first heard on a plane coming back from the UK - that rarity that sounds good in the car and on the hi-fi! 
Linn AV 5140 active ?
In my opinion the step-up from passive to aktiv is of tremendous value for any Linn Loudspeaker. It also gives a buyer much more latitude in specifying a system for a particular room situation - for example - if one wanted the best possible sound,...
