Sumit replied to Sumit's topic in Linn Owners Club and Forum's Discussions About Old Linn ForumHi, Thanks to everyone for your helpful posts. You seen to echo my feelings about sorting the preampfification stage. Please correct me if I'm wrong but my understanding is that it's better to have a good preamp and the power amp can be so-so initially. So the choice is Wakonda vs Majik and using the Intek as the power amp for now. Has anyone converted an Intek from integrated to power amp? Regards Sumit
Hi, I am brand new to the forum so apologies if my question sounds very kindergarten like. I have a very old system comprising a Linn Intek integrated amp with Keilidh speakers which I bought in the early 90s. I upgraded my Arcam alpha to Linn Genki. I also have an LP 12 turntable. I also have a Nakamichi DR3 which I never listen to these days. I have been very lazy for the last 5-6 years and gone on to easier modes of listening, I have now seen the light and returned to my old hifi system. I would like to split the amplification and was wondering what the best way of doing it is? I have seen some LK100s on eBay for around £250. However I have also found some Wakonda preamps in good condition so would it be better to go down the LK100 route or get the Wakonda for now and use my Intek as a preamp until I get some more cash in my hifi kitty. Is it easy to convert the Intek to a power amp? Looking at the manual, I would need to open it up and cut some of the cables feeding the power stage if I am correct. Thanks for your help. Sumit
