I have Lingo 1s and the more desirable Lingo 2 coming in regularly, so it's just a case of ensuring Wayne has you on our waiting list when you are ready.

Yes!!! 8)

One thing I noticed the other day - and it came to me by surprise - was when listening to music through headphones. I've usually tended to avoid headphone listening to vinyl as whilst sounding fine, there's always background noise, a kind of 'ambient chatter' if you like. It's not rumble, hiss or vinyl roar as such, but it just seems to be a noisy environment, made worse as headphones are so revealing.

Since getting the Kore, this noise has been reduced massively - yes there's still the vinyl hiss/roar etc but it just doesn't get in the way anymore. Uncanny, but most welcome. :)

Brilliant, Richard :lol: Haven't owned any serious headphones in years but it's nice to know the kore is working so well for you :smt023

It's here, finally :D

Installed it this afternoon which meant a full re-set up of my deck which took me ages in order to get every little bit right. It was worth it. Sounding pretty amazing :smt023

Thanks Peter ;-)

Cheers,

Pedro

My pleasure Pedro, you got on the list for an Ex-demo model back in November/December, so when Linn notified me of it, we were happy to keep it until you were ready. :smt023

It does pay to let us know what you guys are looking for second-hand or Ex Demo by getting on our waiting lists as we always have our ears to the ground.

Thank you both :D

Peter, you know the score. When I want something Linn related I always come to you. I'm not loaded and it takes some time for me to come with the dosh. Glad you can understand that and always give me some leverage here. Luckily, I take my LP's upgrades within reason and always consider VFM in the first place. The Kore was just a fantastic move. It really fulfils what i was after ...

Cheers,

Pedro
