I was around my dealer’s this morning for a Stilleto dem and their Urika II has already arrived.

Even though I am a Superline user I am interested in a dem as you never know I may like it so much that I ditch all my Naim / B& W kit and become hooked into a full Linn Exakt architecture :mrg:

p.s. and the Stilleto sounded.........

Looks like Linn are no longer bothered about cosmetic arrangements fitting in " where to put it " these are pictures from an event and this was the best they could do.
What about a smaller box for Radikal instead of a big box of Glasgow air.
It'll soon be Hi Fi from Legoland " other bricks are available." xss12

I agree Jim. Its got to fit on the rack somewhere, so why make it so 'unplaceable'? (unless its supposed to sit on the floor/under the rack/behind the wall

Wheres the cable dressing and support? :smt018

James,
The other end has a rocker switch and the IEC socket.
The whole thing looks like an afterthought.IMO :roll:
I find it hard enough keeping the Radikal empty box refreshed with Glasgow air a pain to keep the SQ up. :smt005

Its just a LINN SMPS in a box only big enough to hold it, the switch and sockets.

I just don't 'get' the reasoning behind it
