Linn logoThe Scottish company Linn has always made its own way in the audio world, stretching all the way back to its classic Sondek turntable. The new Majik 109 speaker isn't really revolutionary (few speakers are), but the small 3-way monitor does have some unique features, including Linn's 2K tweeter+supertweeter array to handle the treble and beyond. Big sound is promised from the little box, and there's an upgrade path will carry you along bi-wiring and ultimately, an active configuration. Being a Linn product, you know these speakers will keep your toes tapping long after you pay off the $1590 asking price per speaker.
