These 2 way speakers sound great on or off stands. Compared even to my Naim speakers these Linns put out such a clear, warm, and tight sound.
There are four small screw holes in the back for mounting as seen in picture 3. I’ve had them for about 1 year, but due to travel they have rarely been played. The only cosmetic flaws I can see are: 1. on left speaker, bottom right corner is slightly indented (seen in picture 5), 2. On right speaker, Linn logo is slightly scuffed (seen in picture 6). No spike holes.
Due to these 2 small cosmetic flaws I rate these as an extremely conservative 6/10. The sound imaging is perfect however.
Once they are boxed up (double boxed) I can give the exact shipping cost (Fed Ex ground) to your Zip.
