Bottom Line:   
Je suis un passionné de tuner fm, c'est de loin la source que j'écoute le plus. Pratique car la radio nous aide souvent à choisir notre achat de cd. Je ne dis pas que c'est toujours bien, mais parfois on est surpris par des découvertes. Quant on a pas un style de musique précis, la radio est une bonne source.J'ai possédé de très nombreux tuners fm haut de gamme, Magnum Dynalab; 100, 102,108, Creek T43 (excellent tuner), McIntosh MR7084, Accuphase; T-106, T-107, T-109, Rega, Aura TU-80, Classé Audio T-1, T+A 1000.... Bref.... j'en ai eu beaucoup et j'en oublie encore beaucoup. Me voici maintenant avec le Linn Kudos, pour être plus précis, je possède le préampli Linn Wakonda avec le tuner Sneaky Kudos intégré. Donc j'écoute mon préampli Wakonda avec tuner intégré comme tuner simplement car je possède un bon ampli intégré, Euphya Alliance 270, Kimber 8TC comme câblage HP et Spendor S8 comme HP. C'est la première fois que j'écris un avis sur un tuner, pour vous dire!!! J'ai bien envie de continuer ma folle aventure avec un Linn Pekin???!!!

Bottom Line:   
I recently purchased a Linn Kudos and i have to say im very impressed with the overall sound quality, which i would compare to near CD. what impresses me the most is the bass this tuner can re-create, it gets pretty low while not sounding tubby.
I actually think it has a cleaner and fuller/richer sound than my Magnum Dynalab FT101A.
It also does a good job of pulling in distant stations.
At $1800 they are not cheap but if you use a tuner alot like i do than its definitely worth listening to.
Apparently this tuner will now be replaced by a cheaper version called the Peking at about $1000.

Bottom Line:   
I didn't want to pay this much for a tuner ($1800) but I got to a stage in my life where I wanted quality hi-fi. This Linn Kudos tuner is flat out like listening to a cd. Nice clear highs, acurate midrange and surprisingly tight low bass. The FM noise? well, there isn't any, thats why I often think there is a cd playing. This is a high quality tuner that may be hard to find new in the USA now. I recently heard Linn is sending the US a cheaper ($1000) tuner called the Pekin and discontinuing the Kudos here. The Kudos will still be available to Europe PROBABLY WITHOUT THE BRILLIANT, SWITCHABLE, POWER SUPPLY IT NOW HAS. Linn's flagship tuner the Kremlin is still available everywhere. That will be the Tuner I eventualy will upgrade to...

Bottom Line:   
The module allows a Linn Majik I owner to convet the unit into a reciever. This is not as heavy an investment as the Kremlin and does not take up more shelf space in that the module fits into the Majik I.

Kudos

In this thread, I wanted to get a buzz going about any good experiences folks have had regarding their equipment and manufacturers. I know that quite a few posts of this sort have already been placed, but I think a formal place for them should be available. We do a lot griping, it seems, and not eno ... Read More »

Kudos to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

Glad to see that they deactivated Keyshawn Johnson. If he wants out, well no time like the present! I'm not sure what they will be able to get for him via a trade, but they should get something, maybe a third or forth round pick. I wish more teams showed the balls that the Bucs did. So bye-bye K ... Read More »
