Hi all,

I hope I can post this here if not many apologies but this may interest someone looking for a starter LP12.

It is a Basic model with Valhalla ps, and entry level arm and a £40 cartridge I did not note the exact specs. It has been serviced and set up by a long term Linn technician who has done many upgrades and excellent servicing on my turntable and is priced at I think £599.

If anyone is interested PM me and I will give you the dealer details.

I have no connection to the LP12 and my connection to the dealer is purely as a paying customer and I will get no sellers commission on this.

I guess most people would want to know who the dealer is as that may determine the quality of the service/setup.

If it is ok to put the shop details on here I can, I was just trying to be a little discreet. I am not in the trade just popped into the shop to have a new cartridge fitted to my LP12.

The shop is Gullifords in Exeter, Devon. Info@gullifordhifi.co.uk if anyone wants to contact them

They are not a Linn Dealership but used to be and still do a lot of work on Linn LP12s building for customers as well as servicing etc. They get all their Linn parts from a main Linn dealer. Anyway, I am not here to fight their corner as I have no connection with the shop or that particular deck I just wanted to highlight what I thought would be a good starter LP12 for someone.

I think you're fine putting it in, looks like a pukker place! £599 is a very good entry level price if the unit is set up properly and everything works as it should.

Many thanks for pointing out that my profile showed I was in the trade. I am not and never have been in the trade. Anyway, I have now amended it to hopefully show I am not. Apologies if this has caused any problems or concerns about any posts I have written.

When I created my account I said „not in trade“. But his changed automatically. Changed it manual back to „not in trade“.

Thank you for this, it may be what happened to me, I filled in my profile and did not go back to check. Hopefully it is now showing the correct "not in trade". Just off to check!

I just thought it was nice to post this opportunity here. That is a rather low entry price for an LP12. It could end up as life changing for someone out there. I had a similar experience some 30 years ago when I bought mine for $450. Yes, the same one that's in my signature.

I believe that is called a gateway drug. It appears to have been most effective in your case. 😁
Mine too!

I remember Gullifords from when we lived nearer Plymouth, in Devon. They were one of the few independents around and I’m glad they’re still going.

Their name also stuck with me on account of my growing up near Guildford, where there was a decent Hifi shop, and the name looked very similar at first glance.
