Linn Special Offers
Linn Special Offers to tempt you:
Katalyst – New DAC architecture and a lot more….
The Great Exchange !
All good things must eventually come to an end. The era of the CD player is over: sales of CDs fell by over 10% while streaming saw a 68% rise over the same period last year.
It’s been 8 years since Linn became the first company in the hifi industry to stop producing CD players, and the time has now come to end service support. Now is the best time to “Bite the Bullet” and you can trade in your old Linn disc player against a new Linn DS streamer with some very significant savings:
£2000 off any new Klimax product
£1000 off any new Akurate product
£500 off any new Majik product
This offer also applies if you have a Linn Pre-amplifier to trade in. The Klimax, Akurate, and Majik DSM’s all have built in pre-amplifiers so you don’t need a separate (external) pre-amp.
This offer starts 3rd July 2017 and ends – well we don’t actually know yet !

This HDMI board will also support HDR for better dynamic colour range, CEC for interoperability, and ARC to return audio from the television to the DSM.

Hi Alan,Amazing improvements on both counts!The Katalyst has delivered similar improvements to the ones you demonstrated in your showroom. At first you listen to the extra detail in the sound but it is really about the extra focus and musicality it delivers, basically you just want to keep on listening! This is definitely even more enjoyable than the previous version.As for the Renew in the kitchen, that is vastly superior to the previous “i Mac feeding DAC V1″ I had before. There is probably not a huge difference between the DAC V1 and KDS Renew DACs, so it must be that the streaming capabilities of the Renew are way better than the i-Mac, as you would expect. This is also bringing a lot more out of the Dali Rubicons.So, all in all a successful upgrade. Thanks for your advice as ever.RegardsAndy

Testimonial from a previous LP12 sale:
Alan and Bill, Just a quick mail to thank you for the warm, friendly welcome and hospitality shown when I visited your showroom two weeks ago. Your attention to detail and knowledge from an obvious personal passion for hifi shone, and although I had only just picked up your details from the internet put me at ease immediately. The ex demo LP12 I purchased from you was exactly as your ad, as new, and sounds absolutely fantastic bringing previously unheard detail to vinyl I have played on numerous occasions. I will undoubtedly be monitoring your website in the future with a view to further purchases. Thanks again, Regards, Raymond G

Price New £16300 per pair
Hi Alan I’ve had the Solos for a week now and here’s what I think. Your description of the amps as immaculate was entirely accurate, they’re mint! They don’t sound like a grown up Twin, their presentation is quite different. They just sound effortless and deliver unforced naturalness. The bass is more articulate and there’s so much more detail in vocals and I can hear things going on that were not there before. I’m so glad that I bought them. I’ll leave suitable comments on your on-line feedback. Thanks for your service. Andrew S
