This might suggest the 350 will run for a good while longer before replacement.

RE: Next month Hi-Fi+
Hope the system review is similar to that which Martin Colloms did for Hifi Critic a few years ago ie. he had the system at home for a long period and was able to get a measure of its use and performance. Alan Sircom reviewed the Klimax DS/3 last Autumn largely from a listening session at Linn HQ which from a review point left much to be desired. From HiFi+ staff, I'd be more interested to hear Roy Gregory's take on it.

Unless he is still listening and writing as we post I suspect it's more likely to be another listening session job but I agree with you. Thinking about it - how likely is it that they would ship 50-60k's worth of gear of that size to someone's private address?

Let's find out.

@Linn; hereby I volunteer to accept 50-60k worth of Linn equipment to be sent to my house.

@Martin-H; when can we expect your review?

Tin can telephone system.
