I don't know if this is the right thread for this but as you may know I host some historic Linn reference data which includes the prices as I know them.

www.hoth.uk/Linn-kit.htm
&
www.hoth.co.uk/Linn-kit.htm

I've now added an extra page to host my collection of historic Linn pricelists for people to reference directly if they want them. I've no idea if people are interested, we'll see I guess, or let me know if you think it's useful.

www.hoth.uk/Linn-pricelists.htm
&
www.hoth.co.uk/Linn-pricelists.htm

Of course if you do this it's useful and have additional pricelists then please send them to me and I'll endeavour to add them.

Thx for all the Linn data on www.hoth.uk which has been a valuable source for me recently for obtaining gear for my "Linntage" system🙏

Just got hold of Linn reviews in German audio magazines from November 1996 and July 2001.
Don't want to hijack this thread but in case of interest these were the prices mentioned:

[all in DM]
November 1996:
  • Kairn 4.200
  • Klout 5.300
  • Kudos 2.000
  • Karik III 4.250
  • Numerik 3.200
  • LP 12 with "Lingo" / "Ekos" 4.250 / 3.700
  • Keltik 12.000 (aktiv)
  • Tukan 1.200
  • Sekrit 920
July 2001:
  • AV 5103 13.500
  • AV 5125 5.400

You are of course welcome Jens and thanks for the price info. which I've just added it in (except the LP12 as with the early ones I'm not sure the spec was always consistent to be regarded as a set model like Klimax or Akurate LP12).

What would help the site would be to confirm that your items do match what's listed or if there is any additional info you can report (assuming no mods have been made by previous owners of course), i.e. where possible confirm your serial number fits in with what we think happened at the time. eg your Numerik - what SN is it and hence does it fit in with info in the table about PSU versions and DAC chips. You can PM me if you prefer.

Unfortunately I got rid of my Karik III/Numerik before doing the website so I don't have the info from my old kit.

Sure!
Perhaps it might be a good idea to start a separate "Historical Linn Prices" thread where thses kind of info can be posted rather than on this hijacked thread.
I am happy to post data of my equipment but can also PM you.
Jens

Not diamonds, but the knob in solid silver with a cubic zirconia on the otherwise non-nonsense Lejonklou Giella headphone amp is preventing my testing it as an upgrade to my Grado RA1 with the PS1000. :)
