Linn Karik & Linn Numerik DAC


the record spot

Does anyone have any experience of either (or both) of these Linn products? The Karik retailed for around the £1500 mark some years ago (think the most recent incarnation was around 1995), but can be had for around a fifth of that price now. The Numerik was a well regarded DAC Linn put out aroundabouts the same time I think.

More of these are cropping up on the used market and I'm interested to know a little more - the Mimik I have has a really nice sound to it; a good presentation of the music and I wonder how the Karik/Numerik might take this further.
