Reinhard,

I'm not 100% certain, but I was under the impresion that the Linto phono stage was designed and/or built by Naim. If so then I would expect the design to follow Naim topology rather than that of Linn's.
Sorry but I can't be of any further help, they are quite rare even in the UK.

Paul.

Actually, the rumor I heard was that the Linto was designed by Petr Mares. He designed the original Connoisseur phono stage. His company/design (?) was purchased by Lyra.

(Sorry Jonathan, I'm sure I'm butchering history a bit here...)

If this is true, I would expect to see some JFETs and MOSFETs, possibly in a complementary design. (This speculation is based on a quick look at Mares' protoype at a CES about 13 years ago, so it is kind of sketchy.)

You may well be correct, I dont know. I just have a feeling that the first Linn phono stage was built by Naim, possibly before Linn started to build electronics. It was possibly part of the Armageddon program??? Certainly the latest version of the Linto is not Naim based.

Default Linn Linnk

The Naim forum has managed to clear up my mistake.
Naim did indeed make a phono stage for Linn, but it was called the Linnk. This was basically a pair off 323 phono boards. Im not sure what PSU was used.

Paul.

Until this day I have never heard of this Linn device. Perhaps this thread is helpful for you:
