Feet for a Linn Kisto

Does anyone have any spare feet for a Kisto? I need two.

The ones off the Kinos and similar AV boxes will appear to fit.

I'm not concerned about condition - can't see them!

Re: How good are phono stages in vintage Linn preamps?

I thought that my Kolektor MM was reasonably good but the Kairn was much better. The MC in the Kairn was very good - it took a Linto to improve on it. I couldn't afford that at the time though and stuck with the Kairn. I went back to MM and paired the Adikt to a Kinki 3 - which I much preferred to t...

Re: Katan/Ninka/Espek Tweeter replacement

When one of the 038/ii s in my Espek started to sound like someone had plugged a distortion pedal into it, about 3 weeks after Linn announced the end of the driver, I couldn't find a Linn replacement anywhere and so went for the Hyqophons in Ozzy's link. They work well but have a different signature...

Re: WTB Linn 5125

Hey many thanks for the heads up! Yes really keen on a dynamik version. Also wondering if I can get away with using 5125 for two aktive channels and retaing a LK140 for the other. Probably put the treble and a bass card in 5125 and leave an LK140 to drive the other bass. Anyway thanks aging. Its no...

Re: The Linn forum is officially dead

Disappointing. Although I have nothing against the 'Wam, they were two very different things. At the very least I would expect Linn to make the archive available. I can fully understand them moving away from hosting the forum - but to let the archive go is a sad move. I do wonder where they are goin...

Lejonklou Gaio, Linn Adikt MM cartridge FS

For sale are my Lejonklou Gaio and Linn Adikt MM Cartridge. Only selling because I've taken advantage of having a MC stage in the Akurate DSM and therefore gone over to MC. The Gaio still has original box and a UK plug. The Adikt has approximately 50 hours on it, is the late version and has shown no...

Re: Lejonklou Gaio

Hi Thomas - Last one first - by buying an awful lot of replacement Adikt Stylii!! The chances of an Adikt (certainly up until a couple of years ago) last a couple of years before dragging its backside on the vinyl I found were very remote - even in times of low use. I've hardly ever replaced an Adik...

Re: Lejonklou Gaio

Thanks Fredrik

I had no intention of trying a head amp - I would have only been interested if you had made one specifically to pair with the Gaio - even if the Gaio had to be returned to you first for the mod. I really like the Gaio but, after 17 years of using them, I've moved on from the Adikt.

Re: Lejonklou Gaio

What I found interesting was that there is further life for a MM stage if one was to eventually move to a MC cartridge, the Lejonklou MM stages being such great products. The participants showed a preference for the Gaio with a headamp (and extra interconnect) versus the more expensive MM/MC Lehman...

Re: Analog vs. Digital, revisited

From a listening point of view I much prefer SACD to streaming to the Klimax - so I prefer DSD over PCM in this respect. This is probably due to a psychological preference to a vinyl (analogue) presentation. From a recording perspective though al my equipment is PCM and it is there that I see the de...

Lejonklou Kinky 3

Up for sale is my Lejonklou Kinki 3 - a super match for an Adikt. I've only changed this because I wanted a black box instead of a silver one and so a Gaio is now sitting in its place. £220 plus shipping.

Re: In Praise of the Pre-amp (Kinos with Unidisk SC)

Thanks Stefan For some reason I was thinking that the Knekt and Source option had to be used with TV out and was therefore only a two channel output. I've been pleased to discover that this is not the case and the USC is now acting as a SACD transport feeding analogue 5.1 to the Kinos and Bypassing ...

Hi all Firstly my apologies for resurrecting this thread but I need some advice. I've used my USC just as described in the thread - disabling the USC preamp by using 'TV out' for some time now and going into a 2-channel input on the Kinos.

The Rega RP3 currently on Audiowoof is my partner's. I can vouch for the description. It has had very little use and sounds very nice. It's an ideal first black plastic spinner.
