Reading a magazine this morning, I found an article about Linn Gardens in Cove Scotland. Probably nothing to do with our Linn Music System.

Hope to visit them (and the Linn factory) once, in post-COVID times...

Very beautiful ! I didn't know Linn meant "Waterfall". Was the name Linn chosen for this reason or is there an other explanation ?

Rather simpler than that.  The original Linn factory was on Drakemire Drive in the Castlemilk area of Glasgow.  If you take a look at an online street map, you'll see that the road runs alongside Linn Park and its associated golf course.

For those as are interested, Linn has come to mean in modern parlance:

1. A waterfall

2. The pool beneath a waterfall

3. A steep precipice

It derives from the Gàidhlig (Scots' Gaelic) 'Linne' meaning a pool, mill-dam, lake, sound, channel, bay. It is cognate with the Gaeilge (Irish) 'Linn' meaning a pool, pond, sea, or water.

I'm not sure Ivor ever entered the Scottish castle shown by Ben Webster. :D

The "Linn Castle" in Krefeld (a moated castle from the 12th century) that Johannes mentioned was indeed visited by Ivor.

I think it was in 1991 when a dealer conference was held there at which - if I remember correctly - the Kairn preamplifier and the first Trampolin base board were introduced.

Ivors was in a good mood and his talk was very entertaining and informative. At a late hour (and a few beers later), he was also able to reveal which projects were currently being worked on in Glasgow (Klout, Kremlin Tuner and Keltik). 
I think he had felt comfortable at little "Linn Castle".

Yes, there was a dealer conference that I also attended.
