Proof that British hifi is still the best in the world!
Possibly the best small loud speakers on the planet. You would think the musicians are in the room with you! Perfect and real sound. Amazing clarity! Five stars

"reproduce excellent musicianship in a way that few can match, even if..."
This is a review only of the Kan Mk 1 and Mk II. The much later Mk. III is a different speaker, which shares only its name with its predecessors. Although there are several variants of the both the Mk. 1 and the Mk. 2 the differences between them all are not within the scope of this review. The characteristics, both good and bad, that I describe below are generally more true of the Mk. 1 than the Mk. 2, and a lot of people prefer Mk. 1s. I am agnostic on this: my favourite Kans are late Mk. 1s and late Mk. 2s but many prefer early Mk. 1s. First, contrary to regular claims by eBay sellers, Kans are NOT virtually interchangeable with LS3/5As, even though they use versions of the same mid/bass driver and even though have the same cabinet size. [In fact, a few early Kans are even reputed to have used LS3/5A cabinets). The two speakers, however, have different strengths and weaknesses, and they have different placement requirements. LS3/5As major on timbral quality and 3D imaging, generally sounding best away from walls. Kans, on the other hand, major on rhythm, speed and dynamics, and they are designed to be placed against a rigid back wall for bass reinforcement. With rare exceptions this is how they must be used, for best results, either on light, rigid stands [e.g. Kan II stands] or on the one kind of wall bracket [Sound Organisation?] on which they work well. Although I have been told that Kans are technically easy to drive Mk. 1 Kans are, in practise, particularly intolerant of inferior amplifiers and source components, with which they can sound both dull and unacceptably lacking in bass, both in quantity and tunefulness. They are not, in any circumstances, incredibly detailed-sounding speakers and their timbral performance - e.g. with the scraping of bow on string - is outclassed by many other speakers. Also, they tend to sound two dimensional in a lesser system. In a good enough system, however, their strengths come to the fore, and it becomes clear why Kans have a cult following. In such a system the sound seems integrated throughout the frequency range, the attack and decay of notes seems quick and accurate, and even by modern standards Kans' rhythmic performance is exceptionally good. But what do these strengths and weaknesses add up to? They add up to an exciting, engrossing sound from a pair of incredibly small speakers that reproduce excellent musicianship in a way that few can match, even if they do sometimes prompt the listener to think that someone really ought to buy the musicians better instruments... They're not for everyone, but if you think you like the sound of what they do well, you can tolerate what they do badly, and your system is up to the challenge then Kans might be the speakers you need.

I love the Linn Kan, really happy when listening to music
Linn Kan, it is a pair of speakers is great for the small room, the sound of its very nature, space, long rustic heard not tired.If you do not have enough budget for speakers Rogers LS3/5A and love the sound of it, the Linn Kan is likely to be a very reasonable choice for your budget and you will get a sound like Rogers LS3 /5a.

Linn Kan speaker on my mind
I like Linn Kan because of the lovely tiny size, very good sound and classical style cabinets. It is so pride to be the owner of pretty smart speakers.
