  1. I'm retiring and going travelling whilst I'm still young enough (55) to enjoy it so I'm selling my complete stack rather than put it in storage for 5-10 years I can pretty much find the going price for the usual stuff like the Supernait, CD3.5, Flatcap, Stageline N, DTC etc but struggling to identify a fair price for the LP12 & Armageddon, the answer seems to be "how long is a piece of string?" It's a tidy deck fitted with a Cirkus bearing & sub-chassis, Rega RB301 arm and low hours Dynavector DV-10X5 cartridge. The only faults I can see are some micro abrasions on the lid, a small blemish to the front RH corner of the deck and the olive light doesn't come on the PSU. Coincidentally, it's exactly 8 years ago today that Cymbiosis serviced it and fitted the Cirkus bits. Any advice on how to price or input is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  2. I recently acquired a system consisting of the following: quad els 57 speakers (serviced about 10 years ago but not used since) Naim Nac 22 preamp Naim Nap 120 power amp Linn LP12 turntable Quads: As far as I am aware the quads should be good as new, given they were serviced and then not used, unless the tension on the panels goes over time or there is some other issue. I do plan on removing the front grills to get a small dent out and repaint another colour. Amp/preamp: As far as I know, the preamp is fine, but given it has not been used in about 20 years and was never serviced before that, I've booked it in with a local audio engineer reccomended to me by a local reputable hifi company (James Morrow based in Edinburgh, Lothian Road) to have a general service. The power amp is a bit more complicated, as I have been told that one channel does not work so I did not turn it on for fear it might damage the quads. It has also been booked in with the local audio engineer to be repaired and serviced. These items are currently quoted at £80-£120 each, but I did get a quote directly from Naim at £270-£300 each not including shipping. I went with the cheaper option, as I am on a bit of a budget and I think it is just a missing capacitor, but I could be persuaded to go for the more expesive option if you think that it needs to be done by the people who built them, especially given they are one of the earliest models dating back to the early 70s. Also worth mentioning that I plan on adding capacity for a smartphone input, but since the preamp only has 4 pin inputs the only way I can see to do this is to get a 3.5mm to RCA cable , then a 4 pin din to RCA cable Naim Style 4 Pin Latching DIN Plug - 2 x In-Line Phono/RCA Sockets Linn LP12: Fairly straightforward, it does not have a belt and has also sat unused for the last 20 years, and has not been serviced to my knowledge before that (made in the 70s) so I will book it in for a service with Linn and get them to replace the belt, costing £200. Sorry for the information overload, but I just wanted to get some well trained eyes on my system to let me know if there are any huge mistakes or things that could be done better. I'm excited to get it all working together, as they are all impressive parts.
  3. Hi After 4 years and about 1,800 hours, I think that my Adikt is close to the end. The sound became harsh and with a lot of sibilances, my modest Cambridge CXN is now a lot better than the LP12 to listen to. Is the cartridge worn-out? M.
  4. In very good condition with no signs of component burn or leaking capacitors. Complete with LED switch & original mains lead. Only two years use from 1988-90 when it was removed from my LP12 which was fitted with a Lingo power supply. Connected up at my dealers (06/04/19) and confirmed fully working. If you have any questions or need more pictures please ask. £125 or nearest offer. Cash on collection (West Midlands, UK) or posting fully insured at additional cost
  5. Hi all, Firstly sorry if I offend anyone with my lack of hi-fi knowledge, I love my music especially my old vynil collection which I have held onto for the last 40 years. When CD’s came in I picked up a lovely Linn LP12 but have never done it the proper justice playing it through a little project pre amp, Nad 340c and Mission 702 speakers. Realistically is it possible to pair the LP12 with Amps and Speakers with a £1000 budget? If so what could you recommend and what improvement could I expect.?
  6. I am selling the turntable as complete and ready to go, including the cartridge and won’t split. I am looking for £1475, which feedback suggests is reasonable, but open to offers. It comprises: Base LP12: Serial No. is 0413** which I believe is July 1982. Plinth is fluted afrimosa and, I believe, not braced. Cirkus bearing. Platter could use a clean! Plinth is generally in very good condition but there are a couple of marks for which I can send photos. Cover also has a couple of very small marks and had new hinges 2 years ago. Ittok LVII arm fitted with Dynavector 10x5 Cartridge (around 100 hours only) Lingo 1 power supply which I have had for 18 months. It has not been re-capped while I have owned it. The deck has been regularly serviced by my dealer. Last service was 18 months ago when Lingo was fitted. I can send specific and more detailed photos to anyone who is interested and it is of course available for inspection. Whilst I have partial original packaging – box and bottom styrene - I don’t want to courier this item as I just don’t trust them! I live near Derby and would be happy to arrange delivery if we can negotiate reasonable fuel costs. Also I occasionally travel to Enfield if that would help.
  7. New here, hello everyone. Just bought my second LP12 (currently Akurate config). My first LP12 was swapped for a CD12 a number of years. I guess we all make decisions that make sense at the time ... anyway, my question is about the diode on the power switc on the deckh. When I turn it on, it shines brightly but ”dims” after a few seconds. I thought that the brighter light indicated that the speed wasn’t locked in but I have noticed that the diode sometimes gets brighter (again for a few seconds) during playback. I don’t think that ihe lingo is so sensitive that it can detect increased drag from difficult parts of the record. I do not hear any fluctuations in pitch... have searched the Internet but have not bern able to fond anything. Anyone know what it is?
  8. Logic dm101

    1989 LP12

    Scored myself a very nice LP12 today. I took it to John at Midland Audio Exchange as he looked after me when upgrading the power supply to my twice exploded Logic dm101. John will be doing a full strip down, service,clean and rebuild with a new external supply and cartridge. I have a spare VMS20 but the Ittok Black tonearm deserves something a little higher end so I'll be leaving the choice of stylus to John as he's got an idea of my budgets and he knows I'm not chasing the hifi dragon. Big thanks to John for his excellent service today, the TT will be back with me sometime late next week when I'm going to put it head to head against my Logic dm101.

  10. As seen at Scalford as front end for Active Yamaha NS1000M's, offered for sale is my 'version II' Spoke 330 kitted Linn LP12. Spec includes custom Stainless Top plate with suspension springs and motor position rotated anti-clock to more evenly load suspension springs and reposition subchassis C of G optimally. Three off 1mm dia. carbon Spokes, new Premotec motor, Hercules 33 and 45 rpm Power supply, Chris Harben Bubinga Plinth, CNC machined anodised alloy Spoke posts, composite stainless/Aerolam non magnetic sub chassis. Large surface area of support for standard Armboard, as the new Sub-chassis supports under arm mount, so there is no bending moment in board at arm pillar. Polished outer platter rim, Pre Cirkus bearing fitted as I prefer these, easier to oil to correct level. Available with the SME 309 as seen in image at £2500.00, or without arm at £1800.00. No Linn boxes, or packaging for SME, but original Chris Harben Woodsong plinth box still available. Please note image below has a fine texture finish black top plate, this is now replaced with stainless grained top plate to keep standard LP12 look. This TT was also used briefly in Adam K's system in the Coleman room at Scalford 2013 if anyone remembers hearing it? Thanks for letting me try it out in this context Adam. Reason for sale? I'm going to do it all again with an original Pink Triangle, and make it Direct Drive too if I can. Yahoo! Cheers all. Gary.
