I'm almost tempted to commission Chris to make a surround for my DS, they look so good! Smile

Chris you are a true artist and the god of Linn plinths. Long may you reign. Holy cow your plinths are beautiful. Spiffy website too. You are the man!

RE: Woodsong Plinths
Having the great fortune of seeing a number of Chris's plinths I am very taken with the quality of them but unfortunately, to date, I have not seen one that I would part with my hard earned for. They are all a bit "bling" for me, something that the LP12 is not. The only thing, IMO, that should be shouted about on an LP12 is its performance!

Am I alone here or is Chris missing a trick. Nice, simple and understated anybody...?

RE: Woodsong Plinths
It goes without saying that I have seen a Bubinga plinth in the flesh because this photo was taken in my back garden! Still not my cuppa tea though, sorry.

I'd never thought of them that way, but I see where you're coming from. I just love the natural wood finish, no matter what the pattern. Some are not for me, but I still think the wood looks wonderful.

Having said that, one of the finest plinths I've ever seen was a standard rosenut, on the forum a few months ago, as I recall. They rarely look that gorgeous though.

RE: Woodsong Plinths
The best one I've seen was at Whittlebury in Cymbiosis room. I really wanted to change mine for that one but sensibility got the best of me as cost was a major factor.

I do prefer Chris's plinths because you get to choose what you buy rather than "given" what you buy. Most of Linn's plinths are very much understated, some do look rather nice but it is a gamble if you get one you really like.

You are right about understated, but sometimes they do come up with a nice one......
