    Has there been a shift in Linn's attitude since maybe 20 years or so ago? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they used to be against sacred cows and other idol worshipping in favor of just an honest appreciation of performance as judged by how it sounds... Not how it does on contrived spec tests.

    At least on their forum, it's exactly the opposite.

    I am banned,even before john lol,in fact it seems anybody not swallowing the "gospel according to linn" hook line and sinker gets banned, they need to rename it the linn fan club from the linn forum, I thought a forum was for discussing things about things,both the good and the bad things about the thing,and not just for worshiping that thing?,the thing in this means any thing a forum is dedicated to :-)

    Default WYSAH do not take an lp12 to this dealer

    What about this thread for summing up a very Linn specialist who can't even answer a simple question from the OP. Arrogant and insulting.

    http://forums.linn.co.uk/bb/showthread.php?tid=22472

    The OP's reply where he described the forum as 'STERILE' surely is a gem. Thats the word i've been searching for and might've saved me a lot of time !!!!!!

    I'm trying to find the thread where WYSAH became all flustered when faced with a member who knew a thing or two about cable capacitance. Got so bad for him he didn't reply ...... I would not take my LP12 to WYSAH , Colin Macey.

    The guy got myself and John R banned. He moaned to David Williamson that we were one and the same person. He mistook two seperate snippets from replies we each made 2 years apart where we both wrote 'Er .... no' ...... at the start of our reply and DW happily fell for it !!!!

    DW banned me for having a bit of a row with a member on there who is a prick,which I called him,what he didn't know (the prick that is)is that he was telling me to drop an issue that I had emailed linn about and also had pm'd dw about before even starting the thread about the massive price rise of the belts,having asked both linn and dw politely why such a large rise,and being ignored I was hoping by keeping the thread alive dw may chirp in and give the reason,instead he banned me for not treating another member with respect,but I did give him more respect that he deserved lol

    The issue for me is that they have completely banned me, but this is not shown in any of my previous posts. It is clear they haven't the balls (or decency) to make it plain to anyone who happens to be reading the forum that I have been banned. How utterly pathetic is that? What it does show is that they are so obviously concerned that the Sole is a seriously competitive product to the Keel. I don't consider their sub standard kore to be a decent product plain and simple, just like the over hyped Cirkus before it.


    Another thing I cannot understand is this, why should it matter to Linn or their conceited "expert (ha) dealers that third part products like ours happen to exist? Many perfectly sensible enthusiasts having come to LP12 ownership via a SH or eBay purchase will not pay their ludicrously extortionate prices and dealer fees and who do seek help and advice from enthusiasts like myself.

    what it really boils down to is linn and their dealer network have a lot to lose if the "linn is always best brigade" actually start reading posts that question tat idea and then start actually thinking for themselves about some of the ludicrous claims made

    It's sad that the dealers have to rely on keeping their clients in the dark to continue to get business. Does not bode well IMO. Maybe some of them will read this and think twice.

    I've been reliably informed I am now noted as being banned from the Linn forum! At last they are now being honest!
