Yeah, funny about the Linn not being repped too often on here. I confess that I'm a little leery of suspended TTs generally. Also, don't know much about the various Linn arms. Would probably prefer to be able to choose whatever arm I like. And already have the CB-1L and the 4 Point 14.
Thanks for the reminder about the LP12 though!
Pimped LP12 spinner here.
LP12 detractors are fully justified in criticisms of “the old fruitbox” in its original suspended format... Bouncy platter, stretchy belt-drive and all that.
That is to say that speed stability - and flutter - remains a BIG issue with stock LP12 decks of all iterations.
The LP12 finally fills its potential when the original springs and grommets are discarded and AUDIOSILENTE SILICONE MUSHROOMS are inserted to provide a “barely suspended” environment.
Even if you are a dyed-in-the-wool, one-eyed, flat-Earth Linnie, you owe it to yourself to hear what the LP12 is actually capable of - SANS SPRINGS!
You will be truly shocked - and all smiles... promise!
