  1. Linn Adikt is even better than a K18 mk2 IMHE Vastly under rated especially into a good Phono stage
  2. Just about to purchase a new to me Linn Lingo 2 to replace a Hercules power supply This particular Lingo 2 was made in 2004 so I was wondering if it would benefit from a service before I installed it and started using it? Also what would be involved in a service ? Thanks
  3. Looking for a good quality tonearm for use with a Pink Triangle deck. Ideally Rega mounting, but would consider others. Must be in very good condition. Price up to around £500 ish. Thanks
  4. My Lingo 1 was serviced 3 years ago after 21 years - recap and calibration as previously mentioned. Sounded clearly better and has prolonged life for another 20 years or more. I also changed the capacitors in my PT1 turntable power supply as they were bulging slightly - just in the nick of time. No doubts in IMHE this is worthwhile
  5. One of the coolest things about the LP12 is it’s modular design- it was originally sold even without a plinth! So you have freedom to experiment. Underpinning all of this is sensible set-up and you need to get this right. Once setup, an LP12 is good for 5 years easily if not messed with. A one piece, well engineered sub-chassis makes a big improvement to clarity and bass performance IMHE (including alternatives to the Keel) and there are good alternatives in tonearms as well. I’m personally in favour of slightly lighter arms on LP12s because I’ve found they work and sound better IME. A Funk FXR2 is my choice after trying many others, it just sounds right - so the message to the OP is don’t be afraid to try alternative non-Linn arms on an LP12. It will be interesting to see how you get on if you go the alternate route.
  6. Change the stylus quickly! Think of your records !! The latest Stylus/2 is a nice improvement over the original as well - quite tuneful
  7. Funk Firm FXR tonearms work particularly well on LP12s IMHE, being stiff and light. Musical and engaging with an especially dexterous bass
  8. Had a small unexpected windfall recently and decided to go for a top flight "last buy" phono stage since vinyl is my main source... I auditioned several different flavours from Trichord, Audio Research, Whest, etc over a 6 week period but finally settled on a Trilogy 907. I wasn't overly familiar with this brand and hadn't actually considered them at the beginning when I made my short-list to listen to - but - in the end the overall package of build quality, adjustability and of course sound quality was simply brilliant. If you are looking for a "final" phono stage I would strongly recommend a listen. Works beautifully with both my DV XX2 and AT33 PTG mk2 carts.
  9. Bump - very good price for a virtually new amp. 6 channels of power
  10. For sale, latest spec Linn Majik 6100 6-channel power amp, as new condition. Also, includes 6 x 2.8m lengths of Linn speaker cable Bought new July this year, so fantastic bargain to be had. (Also for sale on the popular auction website) Looking for £1800 from Wammers, bank transfer, Paypal gift or local collection from Oxfordshire / Berkshire
