Does anyone know what tool is used to remove the speaker terminals on the Linn NInka and where to get them?
 

many thanks

It is a simple rectangle of metal with three squared off prongs at one end.

The middle prong fits where the banana plug goes and the two outer prongs fit the two small cutouts on the terminal.

Originally they were supplied with the speaker but were quite soft and didn’t last too long. A local retailer may be able to find one in a bottom drawer.

Plan B is simply take a pair of needle-nosed pliers, insert  into the two small terminal cutouts, hold carefully and twist anti-clockwise to undo.

When I bought my Ninkas second hand a few years ago, they came without the spanner.
 

I contacted Linn support to ask where I could buy one and they sent me one free of charge.
