Does anybody know any high profile or famous people who share our passion for Linn?

...i know Prince Charles is a customer, but does anybody know anybody else?

Not somebody i would have expected to have Linn - the spandex and the perm he wore in his heyday screams flash American Exotica (Krell, Wilson, etc) rather than the understated looks and sound of Linn...he clearly is a man of taste after all!

...it always surprises me how few Musicians actually get involved in HiFi and resorded sound reporduction - i'm aware of plenty who have very very modest systems...

I don't know if he is a Linn user - but i know George Michael is a HiFi nut - and spends a LOT of money on it (it was mentioned in his entry in the sunday times rich list!) and i think you can hear this in his music; which is always VERY well recorded.

I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere on Linns or a dealers website that David Bowie is a Linnie...

Interesting

...probably a good idea for Sharon Stone - not having to move from a seated position to change the CD is probably what sold it...
