Linn Wakonda Preamplifier With Remote


Great "almost vintage" line level preamp from Linn, and a perfect match to the Klout amp and Linn speakers also listed on our store (click here to view).

In overall great condition with no significant scratches, just a few light scuffs.

Tested in our lab and working perfectly, and also includes a Linn compatible remote.

*Please note the phono card is not installed, as "AUX2" is checked off from the factory for the last pair of RCA inputs. See the owner's manual for more information.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Preamplifiers:
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. Special attention is paid to the power supply which is the most common source of failure for preamps. We then power up the unit and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the low voltage output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise to get a baseline.

At this point we will lubricate and clean all switches and potentiometers (that are not sealed) with a high quality contact cleaner, and then re-test all functions for any signs of noise or scratching.

Final testing involves putting actual music through the preamplifier We have learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to a familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we are super familiar with which will quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some preamps will then move into the listening room where they will be tested with our in-house reference system.
