Urika II release notes?

Software to my Urika II was updated today, but I do not know what exaktly was upgraded. Does Linn supply release noted for Urika II software?

I finally remembered to ask Phil @ Cymbiosis.
We haven’t had anything on the Urika II update and I can’t find anything on the Linn Dealer site either.

These updates do come through regularly and sometimes are quite minor, so they probably think not worth shouting about.
He's offered to contact LINN if you really want to know, so let me know if you do and I'll pass the message on.

I would imagine that most changes to the U2 firmware would be to add support for further cartridges, but you’re right, it would be nice to be told.

Hey Jim, I'm not sure that 'pushing' really explains the success of SL versions of Lyra carts :smt023

The effect of applying the Urika II firmware change in Konfig for me was to reset my carefully calibrated custom settings for the Kleos SL (as 'Other Moving Coil Cartridge') to default, so I had to enter the correct settings again.

DW at Linn said a while back that they would incorporate the Kleos SL settings, but obviously no-one has yet got round to this. There has been no change to the menu of specifically supported cartridges - Lyra Delos and Argo (which as not been available for years), but no Kleos or Etna which is odd.

Pushing = Retail term for introducing a new product line.
The logistics of moving (or "pushing") large quantaties of an item(s) resulting in a high capital yield.
Or in simple terms " latest must have "

So that's why hi-fi retailers are also known as dealers ... :smt030

But you'll enjoy this post regarding Ekos SE and Kandid from another forum :smt023

Vincent,
Interesting read and good discussion like was had on here.
But as for that dealer anyone that thinks it's OK to swap the guts of a deck into another plinth in one go is definitely someone to ignore. :smt103

If I had previously had a Lyra to trade in then the choice might have been different as all options were offered to me but I was trading away a Linn and at the level of my deck I didn't want to spoil the boat for ha' peth of tar.
Glad I'm not the only one. :wink:
As for Dealers yes pull up a chair and join the group. :smt030 :smt030 :smt030 :smt030
