"What a refreshingly honest blog about listening to music through hi-fi. So happy to see views based upon the enjoyment of music rather than so-called sound 'quality'." - Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design at Mission / Wharfedale

Linn Ends Production of Analogue Pre-Amps

A strange decision that will alienate a number of existing customers, and reduce the chances of gaining new customers, I would expect.

From the Linn dealer newsletter:

The introduction of Linn DS technology in 2007 marked a huge leap forward in pursuit of our goal to remove sources of loss from the audio chain.
In 2011 we took this a stage further by integrating pre-amplifier functionality into our world-class digital stream players to create Linn DSM.
Now with Space Optimisation and Exakt Link connections for future upgrade, Linn DSM offers the highest performance, best value and most flexible proposition for your customers.

To this end, we will be discontinuing our Klimax Kontrol (including the Klimax Kontrol upgrade), Akurate Kontrol and Majik-I pre-amplifiers once current stocks run out.
