    My Linn LK 100 with S/N 1775 is an early one...

    for the cracks it would be easy to tell me the date and has it a Holden & Fisher built in?

    Thank you!

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    One that early should have the Holden & Fisher transformer... but to be sure, you only need to remove four screws from the base and slide the lid off.

    The make of transformer makes no difference at all.

    Naim used H&F up until mid 90'ies if memory serve they sounded a bit sweeter but it could be imagination

    The LK 100 allways sounded warm and mellow to me
    The later 85/140 were quite different
    Affordable hifi nowadays

    They were well made transformers, as are many other brands, but a transformer makes no difference to sound. It may be less likely to mechanically buzz (sound physically from transformer not through speakers) than a cheapo one but that's about it.... a transformers a transformer...

    Never heard any different between them to be honest, nor would I expect to.

    I’d agree that the LK100 is rather warm and mellow vs the LK85/140 which are leaner and more agile... but that has nothing to do with the transformer, they’re totally different designs.

    Today I finished my second system nearly...

    75inch TV and SAT input incl. radio...

    into LINN Numerik (still want to buy) into LINN KAIRN and LINN LK100... KAIRN and LK100 very early one S/N...

    I used the phones out into the KAIRN... sounds a little bit PRaT but terrible...

    NUMERIK please!

    but I can confirm the LK100 sounds warm and mellow...

    A similar machine. I had a Honda Novio when I was a kid, it was a low-rent Honda C90 and turned out to be less reliable and long lasting. It was all but worn out when I bought it and died under my stewardship. Shame, it was an OK little 50, quicker off the mark than the 2-str versions.

    today I fully finished my second system:

    LINN Numerik!

    without the DAC it wasnt a HiFi system!

    no Overkill but lovely...

    Glad to hear you got one. I think people are starting to realise how good the Numerik is, they don’t come up for sale very often (compared to other Linn kit anyway) and when they do, they seem to be commanding good money. There’s something about LK series gear, it’s just timelessly elegant and it sounds great.
