It'll be interesting to see how the Linn page on the Wam pans out.

It's a bit like the Jehovah's Witnesses moving their Kingdom Hall meetings to Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park.

Discontent is being expressed about Linn being "too high and mighty" to give a monkey's about their old customers. This backs up my previous post about the market they are targetting. Data protection issues aside it seems unlikely that the data base will be transferred. I wonder if Ivor's sprog will respond to the letter of concern.

There could be many things happening, we can just guess unless we get a deep throat giving us insight. I guessed Linn may be getting involved with Wigwam as I am told Peter now runs a pub and the forum is not such a priority, but he obviously wants to do both, but it does take the pressure off the forum to be a money pit. BUT it could be the other way around perhaps LInn are preparing themselves for a sell off, Naim did it, seems logical for Linn to do it and cash in. Getting rid of awkward addenda like the forum may be part of it. Or it could just be that it is what it is, but speculation is fun and a forum function.

Good thing - the Linnites will be shown up for the ignorant brainwashed arses they are. Perhaps they will look in the mirror.

The impression that I've gotten from rubbing shoulders with Linn customers over the years at various events is that as a very sweeping generalisation they are relatively affluent, middle-class, law abiding, gentle, well educated.

I wouldn't describe them as arses, when it comes to them in general.
I wouldn't describe them as ignorant - in general.

Although I would agree that it would be fair comment to say that their knowledge of the relative merits of Linn compared to other hi-fi options is lacking.

Apparently Linn's head of marketing used to be head of a company making toilets. Comments awaited, some already on the forum. :lol:
