This is the mk2 of the Akurate 242 which means upgraded stands, 3K Arrays drivers, revised cabinet, ports and crossovers. The mk2 is a big step up in sound in our opinion. The stands for mk2 are in a big solid piece compared to mk1, these upgraded stands are available for mk1 at £830!
Linn themselves only acknowledges mk1 and mk2 of the Akurate 242, but some calls these mk3 since apparently there were mk2 speakers without the solid stands.
The speakers are in the rare gloss cherry version, the gloss version was £800 extra!
The speakers sounds absolutely amazing and they have minor signs of usage. However the front veneer has split from the side veneer in places which most of the 242 seems to suffer from, and specially the gloss versions. Please see the photos. The splits are less than 1mm and are not really visible unless you look really close up and are looking for them.
For more photos, just ask!
Will be shipped in their original boxes.
