    I think that’s the problem with the quad are terras they are a bit radio 4. They are not bad in fact they are very good but just that little bit too polite

    You say you have heard Lintons sounding sharper, what was the system they were in then?

    There is IMO nothing "polite" about the sounds coming out of radio 4.

    I am hearing that the Linton's are a good match for Prima Luna amps. As a consequence i have them on mu short list of speakers to connect to my PL mono's.

    I heard them with a Leben the Cs 600 and it was very impressive. I have a loan amp this weekend ,well arrives Monday so won’t get much of a chance to listen until next weekend. I wanted to try a. Gato 250 but have been told although very good possibly a bit “polite” as well

    Colin, if you can get your hands on a Prima Luna give one a spin.

    Mike's (Jachawk) Prima Luna sounds great with your Old Kralks Steve, but probably a bit pricey. I've no doubt that quality is there on the lower cost models too though.

    I looked back over reviews to see what amps were used. Quite a few were valve integrated including icon audio and prima Luna. Line magnetic was used which is an interesting manufacturer there is a Uk dealer but prices are vastly higher than outside Uk. I had a prima Luna power amp two or three amps ago with triangle speakers.
    Not going to rush this want to get the combination right

    Well the loaned amplifier arrived last week but today was the first day I got it temporarily set up to have a listen. Started at 9.30 and eventually switched off at 5pm. The amp is a Cayin cs55a with dac and phono stage. Eventually my wife and son were sitting picking music . From ozzy through to bluegrass. Some Lou Reed , Shires , some prog genesis , two of my favourite albums Stomu Yamashta and 801 live and some of my sons more interesting music. It didn’t really favour one or other. I even had Adele on. Don’t think I have enjoyed a session so much for a long time

    Tomorrow I will just use the phono all day . Have to admit incredibly musical and really worked with the speakers. Great bass and soundstage couldn’t make my mind up with triode or ultra linear but nice to have choice. Looking forward to tomorrow. Not often my wife sits and listens for a couple of hours

    Sounds good. I always erred to triode if speakers were suited.
    Great when family join in
