Linn Saras; just how dreadful are they?


Saras today sound strangled and squawk with a huge mid peak and a treble that's either chrome plated or tinny depending on the tweeters yours have - wonderful on rim shots but not much else IMO; and please don't start me on the ghastly Sara 9, which got worse and worse with each pair we had on dem; the beginning of a very bad time for Linn until the early nineties - I'd much rather have a pair of Spendor SP1's myself, oh heck, even CREDO's and sacrifice some scale for a more natural reproduction of voice.......
