    hi all,

    im looking for help to find a pair of speakers to partner a linn claasic.
    the budget is open as if i can always go into the ex-demo / second hand market.
    you can only spend so much here anyway
    so i am looking for the perfect partner to get the best out of the speakers as well as the linn.
    the speakers should not be overly large.

    thanks

    You don't say how the LC is being used I find mine can run both my set ups admirably and its possible since there sad demise to pick up real bargains in Castle Speakers..

    If like myself the Classik is now a second room system the compacts pair and the cube make a perfect highly musical solution for the Classik. Equally though the Linn Katans I used initially with the Majik system were perfect with the Classik, though ultimately found a home elsewhere.

    Dont skimp on SW for the Classik though, Chord Odyssey is a great match for its detail.

    it is going to be used just for music.

    the linn speakers are being considered.
    i have also considered
    b&w 705 / 805 second hand
    leema xen second hand
    sonus faber concerto s/h
    '' '' cremona mini monitor s/h

    the question is : are some of these overkill ? to good for the linn ?

    the wiring will be chord rumour or qed sliver

    I'm currently listening to a Linn Classik with an LK85 driving a pair of Usher S-520's. £320 new. Bargain. Sounds great and if you speak to Dave at SoundHiFi I think he'll probably take your old speakers in part-ex. Got a great deal on my old MA Bronze B2's and he's a nice guy to deal with.
