Linn LK1 LK2 Pre and Power Amplifier Combination


Linn LK1 and LK2 Pre/Power

Another very collectable, pre-owned, set of Linn components, matching pre and power amplifiers. These would definitely suit vintage collectors looking for near pristine hi End gear. Would make a nice companion to an early Linn Sondek LP12 to build a full Linn Vinyl playing system. Amplifiers very nice cosmetic condition and even has all it’s original inclusions like manuals, cables and boxes … The asking price is but a fraction of what a new Linn amplification would set one back these days. An opportunity to add some classic high end pieces to the Hi Fi rack at an affordable entry level fee.

Linn LK1 Pre-amplifier

Linn LK1 is a fully featured preamp with the unusual feature of separate phono inputs catering for both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges. Like many British products of the time the unit features multi pin input sockets. However so as to not put anyone off the Linn LK1 LK2 they come with a complete suit of suitably terminated interconnects. The phono inputs are the more recognisable RCA type.

Whilst an relatively early machine the LK1 does feature microprocessor control of it’s front panel controls. Excellent performance coupled with simple easy to use configuration makes for an attractive preamplifier.
