HiFi Trade?

I did ask my local dealer about this yesterday. Trade in value is £5k. Not great!
Against a NG KDSM/3 product, the Linn trade in for a Klimax DSM is up to £7k, for a Klimax System Hub it is up to £4K. I dare say the devil is in the detail of the “up to” and how good a customer you are (the Linn Trade in reduces the dealer margin, so they lose the profit on that £7/4K)

The dealer gets to keep your traded in box, to sell on, so they should also offer a fair trade in value on top of the Linn “discount”.

As ever, other dealers are available.

I have been offered £4K off a NGKSH for my KDSM/1, but I get to keep it to sell privately (or use in a second system, if I had one).

They were talking about an additional £3K to take it off my hands, so I guess that makes up the £7K you mention.

It strikes me as a fair deal all round.

Hmm, that wasn’t my understanding  @Newton John, but they may have some way of grading traded in models.

how does the KDSM hub solve the problem? Would i not still need to update the speakers with Katalyst/Organik?
You would not need to upgrade the speakers to Katalyst nor Organik, but it would sound better of course. The NG Klimax DSM Hub will make a huge difference to your system. I would say the biggest improvement you can make. I think if you did go for it, you would be happy with your Akubarks as they are for now, and then just wait for Organik to happen.

Question please - Are you certain the trade in offer is still running? My local dealer is checking tomorrow but was under the impression it had finished?
