    • Many interesting point of views. Knowledge is astonishing.. i just finished an hour long video on the rational speaker placement from bob robbins. Very interesting bit is that he said the center stage remains the same place within a room if you moved around a room. Ive found it strange yet willing to give it a try. In my case when i move to the left. The center stage will move tobthe left since the left speaker is closer to me hence its louder to me.  Heres his page. His video in rmaf is very interesting guys. Recommended to watch and tell me what you think. Very interesting

    • The motor has been reworked so technically not the same as Maxon off the shelf motor. Radikal also benefits from Linn Dynamic power supply which is probably more to do with the quality of Radikal than the DC motor. I've had Radikal fitted for a while now and I'd say the improvement in pitch control especially are substantial over the previous Lingo. The Radikal LP12 is right up with the very tt's of today in this respect whereas with Lingo it was not. £2800 is a lot of money but in the grand scheme of things owners spend huge sums on tt's, arms and cartridges individually without gaining anything near the fundamental improvement Radikal brings to an LP12. Imho it's by a long way the best upgrade Linn has ever introduced. I've listened to other tt's with DC motors that don't sound as assured as an Lp12 with Radikal.  You stop listening to the tt and settle down to the music, every area of playback is better, Radikal is so assured and relaxing you have no worries you maybe hearing something not quite right. I'm positive I know now what listeners say about the difference between hifi and music. Radikal makes the LP12 very very lifelike. I had a Hercules before Radikal, quite often drum strikes were soft or rounded, I thought them fine at the time. With Radikal you can hear strikes and how each one is different as they all are. Immediate and sharp leading edge, start and stop and genuine timbre in the bass which plays tunes on some tracks I never knew existed. In the midrange seperation is far better, where before you may have thought one person was singing you can now clearly hear two or more. I'd say in the context of taking a £2k used Lp12 up to the performance level of an £18k Brinkmann it's worth every penny. Infact if you have an Lp12 you could spend £50k on a cartridge, arm, amp or a set of speakers and not improve your system as much as Radikal would. It's fundamental to the LP12. Wouldn't worry about the markings on outer plinth for speed checking, curiously if you take the marker off the tt performs just as well. I don't think it would have taken Linn 5 years to incorporate a Maxon motor into the LP, obviously far more to it.
