And I forgot to include in the price differential I quoted the cost of Activ cards. A dealer may also be able to give you a trade-in for the Kairn? Or they seem to go for around 300gbp.

As for surround - there are ways around it that are more than satisfactory. You could join the MaraLinn club one day Smile

I wish that Mara, or Oppo, would release a Linn sized surround processor with only a realistic amount of in and outputs.
Somehow that seems too much to ask.

The Kairn is worth € 600,- as a trade-in in the current summer offer.
I would def go for AEDSM/Majik Exaktbox I/Majik 140. Maybe you can find the 140-s second-hand and thereby save at least € 1.000,-?

Thanks again,

Have spoken to a guy who works for linn who has been incredibly helpful and it seems the aedsm/exaktbox i combo is worth stumping the extra for. My insurer offers the ability to upgrade the offered components but not sure if I can get a cash settlement or if their supplier would accept the trade in of the kairn. I'm waiting for confirmation on this. I'm going to forget the idea of surround sound for now and check 'down the back of the sofa' to see if I can scrimp the extra money for the aedsm and exaktbox I combo, fingers crossed!!
