FS: Linn Kans MK2 with stands [MEL]

Recommended Posts

Item: MK2 Linn Kans with matching stands
Location: Brunswick VIC
Price: $1000 (go on... make me an offer...)
Item Condition: Speakers: Excellent for age. Stands: As new
Reason for selling: My room doesn't suit these speakers
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: I purchased these speakers here on SNA a bit over a year ago. They are in great condition for their age, with the odd mark here and there. Importantly, they are in perfect working condition and have not been messed with. 

As most people who own Kans know, the stands are a really key part of getting the best performance out of these little speakers. I found a set in the UK that had been freshly powder coated and were in fantastic condition, so I imported them. I don't want to talk about how much that cost... But they are basically impossible to find in Australia, so not much choice!

These are a super sweet little speaker, and deserve all of the praise that is heaped onto them.

 

So, why am I selling them?

My listening area is not the greatest. I have a big sliding glass door behind my speakers, and the Kans really want to be up hard against a solid wall to sound their best. I wanted to move the room around, but decided that harmony in the home was probably more important.

I'm really sad to let these go, because I had hunted for them for so long, and they are really beautiful to listen to when set up properly.

 

I do not have boxes for these speakers, so prefer local buyer, but will consider sending by Pack and Send at buyers expense, if there is a really keen buyer out of town.

Hi Jowls,

Do you mean the surrounds on the drivers?
Only one of the grilles is removable (I suspect the other one has never been off). 

It would be possible to pry the other one off, but I am loathe to remove it if it still has the original glue... 

Please see photo of the speaker with removable grille attached.

      Item: 2 unopened tubes of Green Glue and the applicator gun
      Location: Melbourne Western Suburbs
      Price: $50
      Item Condition: Unused (green glue) and Fine Used (applicator gun)
      Reason for selling: finished the listening room!
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Deposit
      Getting the goods: Pickup preferred. Another $25 for shipping.
      Extra Info: 
      Green Glue usually is sold only by the carton of 12 tubes.  This is a chance to get materials suitable for a smaller job or to finish a larger job.
      Also useful when fitting another layer of plasterboard into your ceiling above a wall or the speakers to prevent sound leakage into the next room.

      Item:        AUDIO NOTE-KONDO io cartridge
      Location: Inner Melbourne
      Price:        $3600 (price drop)
      Item Condition: excellent
      Reason for selling: surplus
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
       
      An early example of Audio Note-Kondo io mc phono cartridge. 
      I purchased this from Japan and had the cartridge checked and retipped by ANA Mighty sound in France.  Retipped with Van del haul stylus.  Damper have been checked and suspension rebuilt.  
       
      So this is literally a New cartridge.
      Played for about 10 hours for testing since rebuilt.  They are quite rare and hardly come up for sale.  The cost of the rebuilt alone is in excess of $2000.
      I have quite a few cartridges so just have to let go some to better home.
       
      Known as one of the best low output mc cartridge designed by Kondo san.  Output 0.1 mv with 1 ohm impedance so will work with a minimum of x30 step up ratio and high gain phono stage.
       
      ANA mighty sound is highly reputable cartridge repairer and builder in France.
      Their Sculpture A3 cartridges were used by Thomas Schick, Frank Schroeder in Sibatone (western electric), Vitus and Thrax demo rooms among others in the recent 2019 Munich high end show.

      François from Ana mighty have repaired and rebuilt Koetsu and SPU for me previously.  They are always careful to ensure the original sound signature of the cartridge design are retained, especially for the classics like koetsu and AN/Kondo.
