  2. Data sheet

From the chakra series the three-channel power amplifier meets 3200 to C (such as chakra), three times 200 Watt, 4200 euros. Both amplifiers together is that the banned on a chip, reinforcing integrated circuits (ICs) are accompanied by bipolar transistors. Linn makes no secret of the preference for one chip power amplifiers; short signal paths and little interference from the outside to keep the sound clean. The ICs work because even fully autonomous in quiet passages. More power is needed, the transistors to help out. The Linn developer this amazingly seamless labor settled just a patent to protect. Completely isolated switching power supply supplies the amplifier with the necessary energy. There are both amplifiers optionally equipped with balanced inputs or RCA connectors according to taste and requirements of domestic investment.


Well, the surround team mastered the combination of effects, music and dialogue; each note had its place in the fabric of space. DVD digital sound was exotic so perfectly in scene, that of Peter Gabriel (EMI) up to the new year’s concert of the Vienna Philharmonic (Universal) each prepared slice pleasure. Until the comparison with the precursor of Meridian G 91 A (6450 euro) plumbed borders: the Meridian sounded rugged, intense, chiseled in rock music, gave their rough edges and a little blacker depth, while the Linn rather easily and fluently painted everything.
