I have two of these amplifiers with Wakonda as preamp and Katan as speakers. Katan is heavy load on amplifiers but Lk85 is a true match for almost any speaker on the market. Linn offers a active mode with cards installed on amp board, one amp is then used for bass and second one for tweeter. That bypasses internal circuits in speakers and minimises sound coloring.
Great amp, you can find some on e-bay or second hand dealers, with todays prices it's a great value.
