Naim?
I ended up with Naim after I’d run through the Linn product line. Seems like the LK100 was the Linn amp then. I bought a new Nap250 as a step forward from that. It kept overheating and shutting itself down at normal listening volume so I sold it a... 
Naim?
You can do a lot better than Naim for the money. I ran through the whole Naim line a few years ago. Ended up with an Nap300 power amp, 252 preamp, Supercap, de-luxe interconnects, the whole deal. Me “I’ve spent $40,000 on this stuff and it sounds ...

Brian Eno's Turntable Design
