New at Wide Screen Audio: Linn!

Big news: we have a new and much beloved brand in the shop. Scottish Linn stands for top quality and innovation and is a well established name in the audio scene. We are very happy that we can inherit this brand from Radiyole, our colleague in Ghent.

Radiyole is going to be taking it easier after 40 successful years. We will also continue to support Radiyole’s other brands and will collaborate with Rudy for maintenance and repairs.
