Linn tweeter upgrade guide
We stock a wide range of tweeters and upgrades for most historic Linn models.
Moving up from the original Scanspeak D2008 to Hiquphon is a sizeable upgrade that brings new levels of transparency and inner detail; customers often comment that it's like changing to a better amplifier or removing a sheet from in front of the speakers. The OW1/OW2-92 can be listened to for hours without fatigue and are drop in replacements requiring no cabinet or crossover modifications.
Some very early Isobarik models used the KEF T27 - these are largely extinct now as the T27 was not powerful enough for this application.
The chart below is for passive (DMS) versions:
|KAN MK1 to serial no. 24077: Scanspeak D2008/8511>>||upgrade to||Hiquphon OWI-92|
|SARA to serial no. 14730: Scanspeak D2008/8511 >>||upgrade to||Hiquphon OWI-92|
|ISOBARIK to serial no. 10924: Scanspeak D2008/8511 >>||upgrade to||Hiquphon OWI-92|
The Hiquphon OWI-92 directly replaces and upgrades Linn D20-LP-1 & works well in the following models:
KAN, SARA, ISOBARIK, KELTIK, INDEX, KEILIDH, KABER, AV5120, AV5140 & NEXUS**
** NEXUS used different tweeters across the production run - please contact us.
The Hiquphon OWII-92 directly replaces the Linn D20-LP-2 (the very close matching of OWll-92 also renders these an upgrade) - use for active (PMS) versions.
