LINN AV 5140


The Linn Av 5140 is a great speaker for Music and movies. The speakers have a warm sound,but with good detail! The bass is extended and tight. I started with a pair of AV5140 for 2ch , then added the Av 5120 center channel. Now I have a Full AV51...

The 5140s are great speakers that require a bit of attention. I write that because out-of-the-box they can sound very bad, closed-in and rather dead. Like the Keilidhs they replaced, they have to be broken in for 30-40 hours before the tweeters are...

While I submitted a review over 1 year ago I felt the need to re-visit the issue. I have made some additional changes in my source, cables and drivers and wanted to report the results. My 5140''s are active with 400 Aragon watts per driver @ 4...

Sound, sound, sound!!! Imaging, soundstage, detail, low end punch, smooth difuse highs and mids

Memories of pre-active and Espek upgrade sound
