    Hi everyone, I write from Italy and I'm not very good with English, in fact I'm using the Google translator. I'm a non-professional bass player, but I write as a user of the Ultracurve Pro DEQ 2496 in my stereo system. It changed my life, I listened in a much better way than before and I even bought two of them within three weeks. I hope it continues to exist for a long time, because it is addictive and now I can't do without it.

    Hi. With the Linn Selekt room optimisation there is an opportunity to specify which speakers are being used. Unfortunately Linn have not tested the Ardens but do have optimisation profiles for Canterbury, Berkeley, Westminster etc. Would it be ok to take any of the 15" driver models and use this as a starter? Any advice please as I love my Ardens and the Selekt but have limited technical knowledge. Many thanks

      In general, Linn's optimization profile should be replaced by Berkeley, which is the most similar, given the age group before 1980 and the enclosure type.

      This is a Linn profile (closest) that optimizes the air spring force of a similar enclosure and the Stiffness relationship of the speaker cone.


      Before 1980



      After 1981

      THAC0 Hi Terry, did you make any progress with this?

      I also have a pair of Tannoy Legacy Ardens and would like to use them with Linn's Space Optimisation technology. I understand from Linn that they supply their dealers with software to aid them in performing measurements for customers, but it would be useful if Tannoy could submit measurements for the whole Legacy line directly to Linn themselves.

      Can anyone from Tannoy confirm whether this is possible? As Terry states Linn currently support some Tannoy speakers already, specifically:

      Tannoy Canterbury GR
      Tannoy Canterbury SE
      Tannoy Kensington GR
      Tannoy Mercury M3
      Tannoy Mercury V4
      Tannoy Precision 6.4
      Tannoy Revolution DC4T
      Tannoy Revolution DC6T
      Tannoy Revolution XT6F
      Tannoy Sensys R
      Tannoy Westminster Royal GR

      It would be great to see the Legacy speakers added to that list (

      pendragon Hello. I have heard nothing further on this and set my Linn to use the Berkeley model. The optimisation setup is quite simple and having run it once I simply tweaked the parameters until I got the sound I wanted! It would be so much better if Tannoy and Linn sorted this out but in the meantime I am happy!

        THAC0 While Linn had already told me they provide software tools to dealers I followed up RE: manufacturers are they told me:

        "We are more than happy to provide manufacturers with the tools to measure their speakers, if they wish to do so."

        It would be good if Tannoy could work with Linn to supply them with official measurements for this line. I'm assuming they must have already done this for other loudspeakers since so many Tannoy models are already listed on Linn's website. I dunno what I need to do to encourage them to measure the Ardens and other Legacy models!

        But thanks for the update!

    Hi, does anyone know where I can source 2 wall brackets for the Tannoy HTS 101? I've tried the usual Ebay, Gumtree, FB marketplace and can't find anything. Thanks very much.

    I have Behringer audio interface UMC22. Now ,the problem is i can't install the driver for Windows 10. Please do response and help me in troubleshooting.

      Hello Ashish, welcome to the community.


      Windows should install the UMC22 using its standard USB audio drivers. Most audio software should be able to use the device through the WASAPI interface. Windows will show the UMC22 as USB Audio Codec or USB Audio Device


      The optional ASIO4ALL driver is only necessary if you must have an ASIO interface. This driver works with the WASAPI device mentioned above and provides an ASIO interface for DAW software. It can give lower latency than using the WASAPI device directly.


      What driver are you trying to install? What error messages are you getting?

      Hi @Ashish_Cherian 

      Make sure you have the USB cable plugged into a USB 2.0 port (usually black), not a USB 3.0 (usually blue).

      Thank you for the response. I'm using ASIO4ALL driver. But in Device Manager, the USB audio device is showing with the 'caution' symbol. I can't update driver from there. Can you please help me in installing the driver.

    I have an original mXC Centre speaker for my cinema room set .18 years old and purée the. So much so I purchased a second hand one for another room set up. But it has a fault sound only comes from the tweeter and nothing from the two other speakers. The cabinate is perfect not been dropped and all connection posts are good. I tested on my original amp then put back my original speaker and that sounds great. So I know it’s not a cable or amp fault. Can anyone help please ideas

    I have a new pair og Tannoy Legacy Arden. They came with some vax for maintenance. However it did not come with any instructions on when and how to use it. Could you provide some guidelines and tips?

      Hi, apologies for the delay in getting back to you, there is no set times or guidelines as to when to use the wax.  Personally i would just dust your speakers with a soft cloth andmaybe one or twice a year give them a soft waxing to keep the cabinets in a tip top condition.

      Hello Kyle, thanks for the reply. I am trying to output that to my aux-out, with removing one input. The setup is, to be clear for you, this is for zoom setup, I am capturing audio/video from a room and inserting to a laptop to be part of the zoom video/audio and another laptop has zoom that I am grabbing the audio and bringing to my control room audio mixer. In the same time the mixer already has the mic in and the zoom in, so this out put should have only zoom audio and no mic.
