  1. Hello, I am new to the world of receivers and passive speakers. I did research for a couple of months and decided I wanted to listen to both music and movies through a receiver and speakers, versus purchasing a sound bar and sonus speaker. I recently purchased a Denon AVR-X2400H receiver and Klipsch RB-61 II bookshelf speakers during black Friday sales. Due to still deciding if this system was worth the money or if I should return and get a soundbar or powered speakers, I went to a local hi-fi shop to listen to Kef powered speakers. They had just gotten in a pair of used Linn Katan ch\1 speakers which I listened to in the store and took home. I have three questions. I am wondering as used, are they worth an investment of $350? I do not know how old they are, so I am concerned they might not work over time or if this is a good price for used speakers. Second, does the Denon receiver have enough power to get the best sound out of them? I have read they need a lot of power, work best with Linn amps, and I am concerned my receiver isnt a good match. I can't afford a more expensive amplifier. Third, are they a good speaker to use for watching tv, streaming movies through a roku? I have read some reviews saying they are not good for tv or movies. I could eventually get a sub, but I don't think I could afford another Linn speaker. I am loving the sound at home, but being new to this world of higher end audio equipment I am unsure if they are the best fit for what I want to watch and listen to, or the Denon receiver. I am also considering a different speaker, a Klipsc Rp 4000f. Then I would not need a subwoofer. I only have 4 days to decide before I have to return the original Klipsch speakers by the store refund deadline for a full refund. Any advice is very much appreciated. Thank you
  2. The LVIII’s were the last of the Ittok’s and the Mk2’s with the longer arm tube, smaller stiffer head shell and integral arm rest were made in very small numbers and are as rare as hen’s teeth. Some regard the Japan built LVIII’s as being better than the early Scottish built Ekos 1’s and arguably only worth replacing for the uber expensive Ekos SE. I bought this arm from Cymbiosis in 2011, it having been serviced by Audio Origami and given a clean bill of health prior to the sale. It’s been used on an otherwise top spec LP12 and had sporadic use since I acquired it. The arm is in immaculate condition bar the usual tiny head shell cartridge screw marks which are hidden and the grub screw retainer mark on the barrel, again hidden in use. I don’t have the original box, which I understand few owners do as dealers retained them for some mysterious reason. It was supplied to me in an Ekos box as you can see in the pictures. Please note a T-Kable isn’t included in the sale. I’m really unsure how to price this arm. LVII’s seem to be going for up to £650 and the last LVIII Mk1 I saw for sale some years ago was over £900. I don’t recall seeing a Mk2 for sale so it’s difficult to price. Ekos 1’s now seem to fetch over £1k so a much rarer Ittok LVIII Mk2 could reasonably fetch a similar price? Maybe I’m better off trying to auction it on Ebay but I’ll try here: £975 Inc. UK delivery.
  3. I have 2 pairs 1.2m RCA Linn Silver Interconnects available for sale. I am in West Midlands and will post within UK free of charge, elsewhere at cost. Price £125 per pair.
  4. For sale is my Linn Klimax Renew DS1 (Klimax DS2 board) digital streamer I have had this since 2015, (serial No 1366470) its in excellent condition, no marks or scratches. It comes with Lejonklou mains power lead and original Linn packaging. I also have 2 pairs of Linn Silver interconnects which are available separately by negotiation. Im in West Midlands, UK, will post within UK free of charge, elsewhere at cost. Price £2200 or best nearest offer.
  5. Majikal Linn amp if you are thinking about going Aktiv allowing six channels of amplification. Buyer pays all carriage fees at cost, which is quite reasonable using EMS. I've shipped several units from Taiwan to various corners of the globe using them with excellent results. I will ship your new amp in the original Linn packaging with a US style Linn power cord. Feel free to contact me for further questions or additional photos. I tried to highlight the slight imperfections in the photos. In real lighting conditions they are almost unnoticeable. Please see the link for photos. £900 plus shipping. https://www.audiowoof.com/show_ad.php?AdId=3577
  6. Hi After 4 years and about 1,800 hours, I think that my Adikt is close to the end. The sound became harsh and with a lot of sibilances, my modest Cambridge CXN is now a lot better than the LP12 to listen to. Is the cartridge worn-out? M.
  7. I am selling the turntable as complete and ready to go, including the cartridge and won’t split. I am looking for £1475, which feedback suggests is reasonable, but open to offers. It comprises: Base LP12: Serial No. is 0413** which I believe is July 1982. Plinth is fluted afrimosa and, I believe, not braced. Cirkus bearing. Platter could use a clean! Plinth is generally in very good condition but there are a couple of marks for which I can send photos. Cover also has a couple of very small marks and had new hinges 2 years ago. Ittok LVII arm fitted with Dynavector 10x5 Cartridge (around 100 hours only) Lingo 1 power supply which I have had for 18 months. It has not been re-capped while I have owned it. The deck has been regularly serviced by my dealer. Last service was 18 months ago when Lingo was fitted. I can send specific and more detailed photos to anyone who is interested and it is of course available for inspection. Whilst I have partial original packaging – box and bottom styrene - I don’t want to courier this item as I just don’t trust them! I live near Derby and would be happy to arrange delivery if we can negotiate reasonable fuel costs. Also I occasionally travel to Enfield if that would help.

    Linn go class D

    With the release of the new Linn streamer models some have integrated class D power amps! For some time Linn have held the view that class D was an immature technology and not suitable for use in their amplifiers, so they must clearly think class D has come of age?
  9. Naim / Linn Isobarik Active System 3 off NAP 250 2 off Hicap 1 off NAC 32.5 (including MC Phono board). 1 off NAXO 3-6 Pair of Linn Isobarik PMS S/N 004747 & 004748 Plus all SNAICs. NAC A4 speaker cables approx. 2.5 m long. Outstanding condition considering their age. Despite no service record the SQ is excellent, particularly midrange. I have boxes for the Naim kit but not the speakers so collection ONLY (Aylesbury, UK). Price £4995

    Sneaky Linn

    Has anyone got or had a Sneaky? I am looking for a streamer, willing to spend £1k if its the right thing for me and a good deal (asking too much?) I have tried a few cheaper devices but have not settled with. I have a few Linn products and have been happy with them, so assuming theor streamers are good as well? Will not be using the inbuilt amp, will be feeding into a Meridian 501 pre amp / two Linn LK 140 power amps and pair of Castle Knight 5 floorstanders. Looking for at least the sound performance of my Karik / Numeric CD player. What about the app.. can anyone comment on this also Ta
  11. A pari of LINN Keilidh black speaker cabinets. they include the internal kustone blocks but no drivers, crossovers, stands nor filling. Fair condition - the rear upright edges on one cab need some attention. Good for a project. Pick up from North Wales or possible meet up, Wam taxi etc.
  12. The very heavy upgraded polymer stands, sometimes referred to as Kustone stands. All spikes, nuts and plastic top caps included. A few marks comensurate with age. £125 P&P at cost.
  13. FOR SALE (due to upgrading) - Linn Majik Exaktbox-i - 8 Channels - Exakt engines - 8x DACs - 8x 100W poweramps - All in one black and mint box - Transferable Warranty to October 2020 - Original Linn packaging - This is the same type of component used by Linn at the Scalford Show demos - Current list price £3950 - Price is £2950 including UK mainland shipping Photos added soon.

You should receive an email from hello@exakt.design. If you don't see it please double check your junk folder. If you still can't see it, send me a PM with the email address that you wrote down as some of the addresses were a little hard to read...

Again, a huge thank you for attending our sessions, we all had a thoroughly good time and enjoyed meeting you. After accepting your invite, you will immediately be able to design your own Exakt crossover for any loudspeaker. For the time being these can only be deployed through an Exaktbox however, in response to your positive feedback, we are currently investigating the feasibility of the VST/Foobar/CoreAudio plugins and a Linn USB 8-Channel Exakt dev-board. In the meantime, if you have a specific project in mind, then we would love to offer our support to get you up and running. Just send an email to hello@exakt.design with some details about your project.

    A Huge Thank You from Linn

    Hi folks, just wanted to thank everyone who attended our sessions, and of course the organisers for putting on a fantastic show. We all had a thoroughly good time and enjoyed meeting you all. If anyone has any feedback we'd love to hear it. We are currently processing all the questionnaires and hope to send out the invites in due course to those of you who signed up.

  18. Hi everyone. For those of you who are not already aware, Linn will be exhibiting at the HIFIWIGWAM Show this year to introduce Exakt.Design (https://exakt.design). Exakt.Design allows you to design your own Exakt Crossover for a loudspeaker of your choosing - whether that be improving the performance of an existing loudspeaker, or designing your own. Your Exakt Designs can be deployed and run in any Exakt Engine. In addition to the Linn Exaktbox, we are keen to support, and would like to gauge interest in, alternative platforms such as a VST plugins and foobar2000 components. Exakt.Design is currently invite only, and attendees of the show will receive an exclusive invite. At the show we will be giving demonstrations, and running workshops for those who are interested in a more hands-on walkthrough of the app. Our session timings are as follows: Saturday 18th March (preview for exhibitors only) 15:00 - 15:30 Demonstration 15:45 - 16:45 Workshop Sunday 19th March (open to all show attendees) 10:15 - 10:45 Demonstration 11:00 - 11:30 Demonstration 11:45 - 12:30 Workshop 13:30 - 14:00 Demonstration 14:15 - 14:45 Demonstration 15:00 - 15:30 Demonstration 15:45 - 16:30 Workshop We have limited places so to avoid disappointment, please let us know if you are planning to attend by emailing hello@exakt.design.
  19. Linn support dated this S/N to March 2005. It is a superb example. That exceeded 70 swings on the bearing test. Where one swing is a movement forward and then return. Usual signs of use on cartridge head where bolts are fitted and on shaft where locking bolt grips shaft but otherwise in mint condition. I don't have the outer box. Collect welcome from Aylesbury / Bucks or can post at cost.
  20. In excellent little used condition. Well under 100 hrs. Can post internationally if you pay cost and duties.

  23. Hi all,Has anyone compared the sound of an Auralic Aries Mini to that of a Majik DS (Dynamik)? I'm mainly interested in the differences when both are used as digital transports with an external DAC.Is the Linn a major step up? If so, in what respects?I'd really appreciate your thoughts.Many thanks,James

    Hifi Wigwam's First Linn Review

    We have just released a new review of Linn's newest top streamer the Klimax DSM Mk3. Not only is this one of the first reviews of Linn's streamer but we are also introducing a new reviewer, Alex Colburn. Not only is this a good review of the design of the streamer but also a comprehensive subjective review. I managed to hear the streamer in a shop for a few hours and it was impressive and far better than what it replaced. Want to know more then go here: http://www.hifiwigwam.com/hifiwigwam-review-of-the-linn-klimaz-dsm-mk3/
