I guess that was likely me then that caused the previous thread to get removed. If so, then apologies. No agenda intended. I’ve owned a lot of Naim and Linn equipment in the past. Starting with what grew eventually into a big ticket Naim setup, which I eventually chopped in for a modest Linn system, which grew over time into quite a bit of Klimax gear, but eventually I reverted back to Naim as I simply prefer it, having had quite a bit of experience of both.
I think we all like a bit of speculation about major new products on the HIFi scene, which is how the thread started. I did notice a few inaccuracies by other posters about other Linn products which, based on previous knowledge and experience as an owner, I stepped in and provided the correct info. I’m not sure that a single thread about another manufacturers products constitutes a forum, but noted. I see there is another thread here in the HiFi section about all things Chord, so obviously there is a fine line that the deleted thread crossed.
