These are German tube amps at a great price now. Klimo made some pretty good sounding audio pieces in the Nineties and the Linnet was their most expensive and most powerful tube monoblock amps (their amps are all monoblocks). Idea was pretty simple but very effective – big power supply and a straightforward circuitry that taps into the sweet EL34 sound. Each monoblock has six EL34 and two 12AX7 tubes. Power output is rated for 100W but we found that to be more than sufficient in most applications. Soundstage was was a grand affair with good imaging, depth and a very rich warm sound. Bass was impressive deep and controlled while the highs were smooth and “velvety”. Pictures you see with the EL34 tubes on it are our store tubes. We are including a new set of Electro Harmonix EL34 tube with the amps upon purchase. These are NEW in the box tubes.
Cosmetically, the amp looks good. Some scuff marks on the metal casing and the speaker binding posts are slightly bent as a result from the shipping to us. One of the plastic rings around the ends of a speaker binding posts is cracked but has no impact on the binding posts. Amps will be properly packed and secured for safe shipping to the next customer.
