Selling my LINN KAIRN Pre/Control Amplifier in good used condition, including the original Linn Remote Control
I also have the Manual
It has just been checked and calibrated and sounds outstanding. (Specifications below)

This is a legendary preamplifier from Linn and this unit has rightly achieved cult status for its reference quality sound.

The photos for some reason exaggerate the surface imperfections, they are absolutely minor and not as noticeable as in the pictures.

I have several other high-end HiFi units for sale:

- Proceed Madrigal CDP player in excellent condition. ( 2 units for sale)
- McIntosh MVP 871 CD / DVD / SACD / DVD-A Player in as-new condition, incl remote
- Linn Asak MC Cartridge
- Accuphase P300 - Power Amplifier, recently restored and upgraded
- Revox A77- Mk4 with Dolby noise reduction etc.

Sold As-Is

Will ship WorldWide as long as buyer pays actual shipping cost and insurance via PayPal.
