Linn Kan II speakers

Post by 1541 on Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:17 am





S/N: 0487xx Bi-wire version-Best to go "Active"with any Snaxo 2-4/ Snaxo 2-4-2 X`over!  or Bi-amping with a Pair of Nap110,i have these kit to support such"Bi-amping" or "Activation" project.


Generally have not much have to say to Naim buffs,it was the creation when Linn-Naim was working closed together .
It is inspired by the LS3/5A BBC monitors.unlike normal LS3/5A,exceptional results when Kans is paired with a Naim power amp or any quality solid state amps and Valves with adequate stable power.
Like SHL5,this baby started to eat noddles with Quad 606,Nap250 or as little as Nait 2.


It was born in the era of much-talked about - Isobarik [DMS/PMS,Sara9] these speakers are so musical and so good at expressing Rythm,Pace,timing that within seconds tapping your feet unconsciously to the music. B110 has been one of the most loved mid range drive units ever made to date and the B110s are a special TIMELESS CREATURE!
There are MK1 or MK2[Bi-wired] available,do not believe people saying which one are better,as they don't sound alike and are effectively different speakers with a very different crossover,and look-wise virtually the same.
i am Looking @ RM3000 with pair of modern Linn steel Stands
It is a very rare[Mk2],Light Rosewood finished.Mint.Beautiful cosmetic.
Note: This a later Kan Mk2s with the Hiquphon tweeter more SUPERB in relation to the early KANs with Scanspeak tweeter! Same as Sara 9 as the components improved the speakers sounded lot better.

Setup tips
Set it up against a solid wall on a stands, you will get a lot of impact, great attack, rhythmic drive.slam and real tout bass. Dont judge the book by its cover, they are so small but with a big,big borderless sound. Most listener will get their jaws drop off,eyes pop out off the skull after listening to these babies. These guy sing with an wide open mouths & they are almost unbeatable on Pace then Rogers LS3/5A.

LINN KAN书架箱,英国原始经典英国完美声
LINN(莲)-KAN " 3/5A "音箱这款KAN是参照LS-3/5A设计,由苏格兰Linn生产,从1979年开始投放市场的,其韵味有 独到之处,中低音单元KEF B110s,高音选用LINN自己的单元.但根据欧美及台湾地区的烧友反应,音质最突出的,依旧是头版的KANs ,也是很多LINN发烧友争相寻觅的烧版箱.音色特点,高中频有非常突出,通透异常 人声脱箱感非常明显,给人豁然开朗的感觉。
声场定位极佳。总之在中高频属于出类拔萃的音箱.据说用NAIM的功放推,效果最佳 king

Naim(名)和 Linn(莲族)都是声名在外的英国老厂,也是在各大音展上亮相的常客. Naim一以贯之的黑盒子造型,简单实用,Naim对DIN端子的一贯支持,信心可真是相当之爆棚啊,一般的音响玩儿家几乎没人敢说这种大话.凭借着DR优秀的电源供应器,不管市电的供应有多糟糕也都可以将之处理得很好.
LINN的产品型号大致可以分成Kans、Sara和DMS三大系列.其中Kans是LINN的中坚产品系列,历史也最悠久。1977年推出的第一代Kan1成为LINN的里程碑式作品.
Kan凭借着小巧的外形和仅四吋大小的低音单元异军突起,扬名立万,linn也多次对其进行了改进,推出了不同的后续版本-LINN Kan2.使用了新的单元和分音器,但仍延续着古典式的造型,中规中矩.
在4欧姆负载下,Naim SuperNait合并功放可以提供每声道80瓦的输出功率,已相当于NAC202+NAP200前后级功放的推力水平,将以Naim SuperNait合并功放来推动Kan 2书架箱.推得太好了,不仅速度轻快、反应迅捷,而且该有的动态、该有的气势、该有的低频延伸样样不缺,尤其是对低频的控制力相当出色,将之推得四平八稳、服服帖帖. “贵族”DMS,落地箱身材高大魁梧,Power Handling标称是250瓦,一幅大食的模样,1541也想看看Naim SuperNait合并功放在更严苛的要求下还能不能过得了关,结果Naim SuperNait合并功放同样是不负所望,完全置于掌握之下,由此我们也可以作出推断,Naim合并功放上的每声道瓦输出功率真的是实打实的数据.
未来若想要以Active - Snaxo 驱动喇叭,灵活性更大!
Naim+Linn绝妙的黄金组合

Shipping within Malaya.

I usually despatch on a Monday Tuesday or Wednesday. East Malaya generally cost more than the published amount - Be prepare for the bombing postage.

Shipping overseas
My packaging is very overlydo robust[overworked] ,oversized,abusively & intelligently padded, strong and perfectly specified for long distance shipping. However, I cannot guarantee safe delivery by any courier, as i can not assure if the item can be survived due to plane crash.Or Delivery crash or any sort of accidents. BUT there are[ absolutely] safe even the posman throwing within 1meter range in any direction. I am very sure Mistake can be avoided,I learnt heavily of my Naim equipment posted to SABAH. oh Sara hey...
and i even seen some POSTman throw my Naim to my front door.i never accused him,because the package was solidly packed. Although he is illiterated for the " Fragile" sticker.I pardon him,at least he makesure he did not involved in an accident during disptach which i could have lost my Precious equipment.

Expect the worst to happen, in my experience ANG MO fella lagi worst,they are tall and strengthfull,they throw my item without mercy.Some totally gone-case when it arrives me..The transformer also macam nak tercabut..who would believe this can happen ?talk like a fool like talking why my baby drooled.

the linn kan2 which i owned is very different than most other Kans,it has its tweeter  housed in a slightly protruded housing. In my opinion they are Extremely rare and for especially for collectors !

I also have another bad condition pair KAN1 to listen too.Besides i have other  Saras taking turn to polish my ears,Hence i am not too worry to sell it.

Dont ask me which Kan1 or Kan2 to choose, it is like asking which Naim series sounds better-CB or Olive?  My answer is buy both still save you a fortune than buying a little ls3/5a.

Most Kan buff reject Ls3/5 and on contrary most Ls3/5 buff reject Linn Kans.  Both camp can not live together.

30years later,some can accept both especially those who want the BBC sound but unwillingly to part high price on a similar size ally Rogers.

Ok. Sorry for my poor English. I got the feeling he is looking for a pair with modern linn steel stands with budget of RM3k. Why he said looking at and not selling at? thanks anyway.

if you can read this,it means i am in the [WTS] infrastructure .
to reinstate,as mentioned i am looking at cash deal,both of them @Rm3000 ONO.
Those of us who have been around with Naim may have worked entire life struggling to setup a optima system only to have more success when they executed with the right speakers and LINN is one the team member.

However naimsee acknowledged that words on a slide weren't going to change anything unless you guys need to PM out and seize the opportunity and to acknowledge the potentials[returns].


PM me to discuss further.
Bi-wired version.
Special edition.

MUSIC is very important for people. It stimulates the imagination,
helps them relax, can change their mood, and of course provides
entertainment and pleasure.-LINN`s Slogan!


LS3/5s salivates many many people over its sound, same like KANs the more you listen to it the more you will fall in love with it, well that's my experience of linn anyway, I have never tired of the sound.
spent a lot of time AB'ing the Kan1 with the kan2 and the Kan2 is definitely a cut above due to improved drivers they used.
