RE: The New Linn website
Sorry, but I find the new web site totally confusing..........and to be honest, the old ones were far better imo.
Am I too old, or what....

RE: The New Linn website
Have been at the new website for music first time.

Sorry, this is a "no go". I will not buy music here anymore!

Are you going to share your reasons with us? I'm sure there's plenty of help available if you ask.

RE: The New Linn website
Sure,
it's a feeling when you enter a shop. Immediately you know if you will buy something or leave. When looking for something interesting, you don't like to open all boxes first and look into it. I enjoy a good presentation, which is now lost in the new LINN shop.

One nice example to me is: www deutschegrammophon com

http://www.linnrecords.com -- the place where you actually buy the music, doesn't look a great deal different. There's no difference for me in functional terms.

If you're referring to the Music page on Linn's main web site then the criticism is a bit more understandable -- albeit this isn't where you should be trying to buy music from (you need to find one of the links to linnrecords.com and go there).

I've no problem with the look of the new Linn website but the navigation is a disappointment. It really isn't obvious where to go to find useful information. I'm assuming though that this is a purely temporary state of affairs with Linn needing time to sort it out after bring the web site "in-house".

RE: The New Linn website
Yep - linnrecords is still the same! I thought the linked pages are the new music website. Why do they do this?
Happy again!
Thanks Keltik Klown

RE: The New Linn website
Can anyone tell me WHAT the scrolling backround pics are suppossed to mean?!?

Most images and adverts have people enjoying their products, making the target audiance desire that lifestyle. So, is the 'studio time' shower guy listening to his Linn... in the shower? How about the 'packing the essentials guy'? Does Linn even make a cassette player?

I searched the website and this forum trying to find the connection to HiFi and sadly found nothing.

Exactly the point I was trying to make earlier in the thread. Well said!

They resonate with the idea that it is music that is important rather than particular items of hifi equipment. The feeling is that the more people understand the value of music in their lives the more successful Linn will be. The shower guy represents singing in the shower like it's your own personal 'studio'.

Half of what I post on here is not worth reading; but I post it in order that the other half gets posted.
Boring stuff->Linn Blacks->More boring stuff->K400->Even more boring stuff, all layered with Magick Faerie Dust.
