It will be pretty much the same as the tangerine but half its price in black and silver.
It with also be available in a few different finishes and colours for those that want something a bit more special /personal.

Interesting times.

Looks? What about sound?

And the birds up on the wires and the telegraph poles
They can always fly away from this rain and this cold

Is there a patent on the Stiletto?

Doubt it given there is prior examples, and therefore it is not an original idea.

Hi David

The difference here is the Tangerine Stiletto is a completely different design to the Linn prototype which never went into production.

The intent above would indicate that to copy our design.

Regards,

Mark

Doesn't matter.

The concept of a machined from solid plinth was Linn's and there are photos of it on the web, and therefore in public domain dating back to 2007.

If you do have a patent, it will be very difficult to protect. You will need a shed full of cash to pay the lawyers.

If you have a design registration, it is very easy to get around by changing small details.

Our stuff has been copied may times, and we deal with this sort of stuff all the time.
Good luck!

Agree,
there are Keel clones on the market, so why not Stiletto clones?
