eg how are you meant to follow links in a doc like this? http://small.linncdn.com/product-catalog...kstart.pdf

There was a problem launching the url rewriting engine but we should have this up working soon and all legacy links will then work.

Apologies for the disruption - will update when fixed...

RE: The New Linn website
For a company with aspirations in High End Audio, the revamped Linn website creates the opposite feel. I have no empathy with the images portrayed which makes me think the website is pitched at potential new Linn users and as such I feel is somewhat 'dumbed-down'.

As someone who is already committed to the company's products it is a disappointing association.

I also think the product images are uninspiring lacking the 'wow' factor. Maybe it's a case of 'work in progress' but some larger, higher resolution images, particularly of the loudspeakers would have helped. There are plenty of other High End Audio companies with websites whose products create a feeling of product desirability just from the image and product description. I'm sorry to say, the new website misses the mark by a wide margin.

RE: The New Linn website
I am now getting used to the new website and quite like it, even if its a bit of a faff finding things at first.

One point of pedantry though...

"Hybrid volume control for digital sources, combines course analog attenuation with fine digital adjustment"

Surely it should coarse and, being British, analogue?

2. Rega P3-24, Ortofon 2M Red > Majik DS-I > 4200/D > Aktiv Katans (gloss red)
3. Sekrit DSi > Sekrit ceiling speakers

Good spot spike - our engineers are great at engineering, not always so good at spelling Wink saying that, I should have spotted that one but fixed now and should show up on live site in due time.

Splendid, thank you. Looking forward to getting my hands on one...

RE: The New Linn website
Do LINN still make the LP12???

Looking at the site you would think not. Well, put it this way, I cant find a link to it.

For great music recommendations, and more, look no further than the HiFiKabin

RE: The New Linn website
I think the 'Buying Linn' page needs to have 'Products' as one of the windows. Alternately and easier to navigate would be to have 'Products' as one of the top menu items alongside 'Buying Linn'. I think that anyone visiting Linn's site would want to have easy access to what Linn makes.
