does putting the DAC's, filters and digital crossovers in a 'oofing great speaker like the Linn Exakt 350 run the risk of microphony from the drive units

affecting these components?


thanks

In theory yes. Solid state equipment is far more resistant to microphonic effects but at some sub microscopic level, they are there.

In the old days of tubes, audible microphonic effects were far more common. I've seen tubed PA equipment that was so monophonic that it caused feedback just like an open mic.

In modern times I've measured the microphonic properties of some ordinary-looking vinyl jacketed audio cable. It took a fairly loud noise, and the effects were down close to a SOTA noise floor, but they were measurable.

In practice, microphonics in SS electronics is rarely if ever audible.

Certain caps can show microphonic effects.
