Linn 2250 Stereo Power Amplifier with 100W x 2

$899

Great British sound without drama or harshness.

On our test bench this delivered 100W x 2, which is really something for such a small footprint.

Tested and working as it should, and in ovarial In good cosmetic condition with few scuffs. One of the XLR jacks is difficult to remove, but the RCA's are working great.

**Linn Speaker Connector Adapters are *not* included with this listing. They are available from many online sources separately.

A versatile, high performance two channel power amplifier for high-quality AV and audio applications

KEY FEATURES INCLUDE
• Linn’s patented “Switch Mode Power Supply” ensures that power delivery is smooth and clean at all times
• Automatic on/off signal sensing circuitry detects the presence of an audio signal, and reverts to standby when the signal is absent
• Switchable voltage ranges for worldwide operation
• 230W power output into 4 ohms
• Accepts internal Stereo AKTIV cards
• Bi-wireable loudspeaker outputs
• Additional line out for daisy-chaining channels

The 2250 power amplifier from Linn is a high-powered amplifier designed for AV and audio applications where premium sound quality matters. Similar in size and styling to Linn’s successful 5-channel 5125 power amplifier, the 2250 amplifier offers an improved level of performance, optimised for 2-channel stereo.

The product also features Linn’s “Switch Mode Power Supply” to ensure that the delivery of power is smooth, clean and always silent. As with all other Linn amplifiers, the 2250 features signal sensing circuitry which enables the amplifier to revert to standby when not in use, thereby reducing power consumption.

This amplifier represents a flexible solution for those who wish to upgrade their home entertainment systems, either through an improvement in current sound performance or through the addition of extra channels. It can be used as a modular ‘building block’ product for users looking to build a high-quality audio or AV system, and offers added performance benefits through the optional inclusion of Linn’s AKTIV cards.

Available in both Black and Silver finishes, the 2250 power amplifier delivers a very high level of performance which belies its price tag.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Solid State Amplifiers:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage.

We then power up the unit carefully and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise. Finally, we run the amplifier to its full rated power into the appropriate resistive load provided by our Sencore amplifier tester. If there is an issue, it will usually be noticeable at this point. If everything reads clean, we will often test for THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) measured by our Keithley distortion meter, and compare it against the original manufacturers specifications. The amplifier then remains powered on to "burn in" on our test bench for a few hours to make sure there are no heat related issues. If there are balanced inputs available they will be also be tested.

Final testing involves pushing actual music thorough the amplifier. We've learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we're very familiar with which quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some amplifiers will then move into our listening room where they are tested with our in-house reference speakers of choice.
