Basik Plus tonearm date

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a Basik Plus tonearm on a turntable I bought. I'm trying to determine the age from the serial number, but unfortunately the only likely source of info has vanished...

Does anyone have an idea of what age serial 9003932 might be?

Hi

If you mean this site, it does not list any tonearm information.

I think the Basik Plus was made until 1990.

Had a quick look at mine which is awaiting installation onto one of my decks.

The serial is 0113xx which I recall I purchased installed on a Heybrook TT2 deck around 86.

The serial is 6 digits rather than the 7 in yours. Not sure about the first digit in yours because they did not sell 9 million of the arms.

Thanks. I've checked and the serial definitely looks like it's 7-digit, and engraved on the arm base. This was also installed on a Heybrook TT2 with the older long arm board (no TPS power supply) so it should be from the late 1980s.

I was referring to the Linn forums which hosted lots of useful information and which is still returned in Google searches.

Linn themselves seem helpful when asked about serial numbers.  I’d drop them an email.

Yes, Linn should have that information and are usually good about giving it out.
