Well after spending more than two months without my 2250, it is finally back!!! Total cost about $250.00 USD. BTW, I bought the Deltron 4mm sockets to swap the darned BFA sockets in the 2250 and the dealer's technician said that they were not the same type!!! :shock: Suspiciously as soon as I got ho...

Thanks Chris! But if the alloy (Zamak) actually is altered, this might be the main reason behind the improvement? Wasn't it called 'Mazak'??? Don't bother, just checked Wikipedia and the correct name is 'Zamac', but it seems that since the early 30's it has been called 'Mazac' in the UK and I clear...

Power IC -> $25.00 USD

Both supplied by Linn.

Still missing labor and parts shipping cost from UK. Already paid $85.00 USD for service evaluation.

Thanks Fred! Just hung up with the dealer... 1. Blasted cap 2. Burned output stage IC 3. Burned board traces (well, vaporized!) They will quote for local repair with original replacements. Traces need to be jumped with short wire jumpers though. I told them to include in the quote replacing the BFA ...

Fred, I saw your post about the 2250 you were selling a while ago and it mentioned it had regular 4mm banana sockets. Was it difficult to install and solder them? Any pictures? As part of my 2250 service back at Linn I'm trying to get them to switch the BFA sockets to standard 4mm banana sockets. If...

Just for info. - the "out of warranty" service charge in the UK is a fixed £300 for a 2250.

Hope you get it back soon.

Steve.
Thanks for the information! I will push my dealer for an ex-employee discount. ;)

BTW, Katans are OK! Phew!

My 2250 is dead...

Last Thursday night my 2250 went up in smoke during an interlude while listening to music. A really weird 'squaking' and 'hissing' sound came from the area were my system is. I'm still not sure if it was from the speakers or the 2250 since I was in the kitchen fixing myself a 'Corona' beer. :mrgreen...

Recapping speaker x-overs

Hi,

My Katans are over 6 years old and I was wondering if they would benefit from a x-over recap?

Has anyone done a Linn x-over recap and can comment? If so, what caps?

When the Keel came to life I wondered why it could take so long to figure that one out. Yes, I wonder that too. Maybe it's cos the LP12 took a back seat in terms of development for a long while and before then, when vinyl was still very popular, perhaps a Keel wasn't technically possible? Me too, s...

Personally, I hope Ivor does sue him. Trying to make money of someone else's hard work by making a cheap knockoff of their design is unethical and lazy (some may feel that is The American Way, but I disagree). Of course he can sell it for less, he has no R&D costs to cover as he just copied someone...

Re: Ittok LV-II vs Project 9

How does the new Linn-sanctioned Project 9 tonearm compares (in tune and musicality) to the old-and-venerable Ittok LV-II?? I would say, not (at all) as good. I have compared the Project 9 with the Akito 2b and the Akito is significantly better than the Project 9. And the Project 9 also has a speci...
