LINN: The LP12 and eBay?

Hi Howard. I know you won’t represent Linn, even though you did. However … I am thinking of buying a used Linn LP12. There are loads on eBay and quite a few of hififorsale.com, but none of the Linn dealers I contacted have any for sale. What’s going on? Linn dealers in the main are […]

LINN: Sara speakers – a warning from history

I never really cared for or about Linn Sara speakers, but some reviewers did and that drove prospects through our doors at Subjective Audio, most of whom had already decided to buy them – so sales were pretty much a foregone conclusion. I carried out a number of Sara installations, never thinking to peel back […]

LINN: Troika MC phono cartridge – test review. Stereophile Magazine.

“Some six or so years ago, the Linn Asak cartridge set new standards for imaging and soundstage reproduction. I can remember the first time I heard an Asak in a system using Quad ESL-63s—I had never experienced such depth of soundstage and solidity of imaging from anysystem, and that with Quad amplification! The Asak was relatively […]

LINN: Exactly the way it happened folks: LP12 and a/b demonstrations

From and including the 1970s, Linn popularised the concept of the A-B demonstration. It was, on the face of it, a faultlessly logical ethos. It was adopted by reviewers and dealers alike, myself included. It was rumoured they had mystery shoppers in circulation, prepared to report back any deviation from the dogma. For a while […]

“I need help with a long gone speaker manufacturer” and Howard Popeck goes off the deep end about Linn Saras, their legacy and why anyone today wanting to invest money to be a speaker maker is nuts!

I purchased a set of Principal Design PD150 speakers in the mid to late 80s. One drive unit has developed a fault so I have been […]
