Power amps don't get any better than this. Defying conventional thinking, Linn ditched the bulk and inefficiency of traditional amps in favour of a fresh approach when they developed their reference monoblock amplifier — and nearly two decades of continuous development have kept the Solo at the top of the tree.

The discrete bipolar design is unique to the Solo and uses Linn's famous Dynamik switch mode power supply to deliver 500 W of effortless, instant power across the entire frequency range.
