    If Linn are having an open day, maybe they could bring along their production accounts and purchase ledger files for us to inspect. Then we could see what portion of final selling prices that makes up. Of course the remainingpart of the difference - the bulk of it indeed -would of course be wholly justified because of all R&D they put in getting their products to sound as good as many others at a third of the price.

    I have Linn accounts you too can download them from company house for £3 they no more than any other company making hi fi make as much as you might think

    problems with kit over the last few years cut profits and yes they more than most companies invested in new equipment and R&D

    I think the tv side of the company (linn sight) does not do that good and having sen the sets I am not supprised

    I was being a smart arse, hinting that Linn offer poor v.f.m. in relation to what things cost to make. I was meaning the production accounts and purchase costs of components, not final accounts. My reference to R&D was me being sarcastic about how these companies often say oh yes well but all that r&d and of course our prices are justiufied. Well of course there are worse than Linn, but I doubt if Linn do have a reputation and couldn't be said to offer good v.f.m.

    If I'm wrong then shut my face, Cloth-Ears.

    I think Linn offers better value for money than Naim
