Linn Classik-T compact integrated amp with built-in CD
player and FM/AM tuner in very good condition, sexy silver finish. List was
$1,995; A’gon Bluebook is $670 - $870; asking $580 + shipping. I am the second owner;
purchased in 2004. It was lightly used in a second system until I moved and has
been in climate controlled storage for two years. Recently tested, it sounds great and all
functions are perfect. High-end mini
systems like this are commonplace in Europe but are puzzlingly rare in the US.
It’s been well cared for in a smoke-free, child-free home,
conservatively rated 8/10 for age and some swirl marks on the top from normal
use; otherwise it’s flawless and sounds lovely. Includes everything that came with
it: original packing, manual, remote, Linn K10 speaker cables, heavyweight power
cord, 4 pair of BFA speaker plugs, and AM loop and FM antennas - all in great shape. It is all boxed and ready for immediate
shipment. PayPal is preferred, and I will eat the fee if the asking price is
met. Buyer pays actual shipping cost,
estimated at $25 insured to the lower 48.
The Classik-T is a beautifully engineered unit, solid and versatile;
an audio Swiss Army knife, it even includes a music/alarm/timer clock setting.
At this price it’s perfect for a dorm room or vacation home, but frankly it
outperforms most people’s main system. Fit
and finish are outstanding - it’s built like a tank with a clean minimalist
design. Delivers 75 watts of solid state
power into 4 ohms, with three RCA inputs, tape/sub-out and pre-out plus two
pair of speaker terminals, convenient for bi-wiring or two pair of speakers. I ran it with Spendor 3/5 speakers in my
bedroom and it really made them sing. The sound quality is crisp and clear with
the wide dynamic range characteristic of Linn gear. It has an excellent headphone
amp built in, and its compact footprint would work well as the centerpiece for
a computer audio system.
