  1. Yes, I have seen that one before and spotted some errors. The year may be correct but not the S/N.
  2. No, this is not correct. Bought my first LP12 in February 1979, as a poor student, and I still have the plinth. The serial number is 22015 and it is dated 30.nov.1978. It has the friction hinges and of course the wood screws in the wood blocks.
  3. Never used anything else from Naim besides Armageddon and Naim Chips. Still prefer Armageddon over the original Lingo. Maybe I have cleaner current with a more steady 50Hz
  4. Still an LP12 with Naim Armageddon PSU sounded much better than with Valhalla and also better than the first Lingo PSU. I have had them all in the past. (Never tried Lingo2 or 3 in my own TT) Armageddon use the mains frequenzy (50Hz in Europe or 60Hz in USA)
  5. If you listen to unamplified music in a concert hall you will hear the sound of a 3D space. The same if the recording engineers are capable of their job and the stereo at your home is good enough.
  6. When using the Basik PSU or Naim Armageddon in countries with 60Hz the pulley is 17mm to get the correct speed of the platter.
  7. It’s not new for Linn. This is from Linn’s own manual: In countries with 60Hz mains supply, older turntables may have a smaller diameter pulley. On these LP12s the motor should be in the outermost position.
  8. You will find the LP12 manual on Vinyl Engine. Good description of how to do it.
  9. The speed with the AC motor is adjusted with tilting of the motor. There are two screws for this adjustment. One of each side of the motor. Always loose one of them before tightening the other.
  10. Vibration is definitely something you would avoid to get good sound. Sorry, but don’t what causes the problem.
  11. The first Majik LP 12 came without lid. But I would think the 8 holes are there to fit the hinges.
  12. You fasten the earth wire to the bolt in the front that goes through the top plate and wire strap.
  13. I had a similar problem with a Benz Wood cartridge many years ago. Took it back to the retailer, got a new one of the same type, problem solved.
