Linn Sondek LP12 Turntable. In excellent condition, minor handling wear and scuff, no dents or scratches, the perspex hinged lid is clear and clear. This turntable is considered to be the reference point for turntables! Wonderful sound, quality build and reliability.
"Arguably the most popular high-end turntable of all time in the UK, the LP12 has a reputation for being one of the finest (and priciest) turntables around, just one of the reasons for its inclusion in the What Hi-Fi? Hall of Fame.
The Sondek has the human touch, too – and three people are employed at Linn’s factory to carry out the tone arm testing. The process requires the patience of a saint, involving counting the number of lateral and vertical swings to ensure the tone arm is working properly.
Once the components have been machined, Linn chooses to assemble the Sondek LP12 by hand, which takes just over an hour per deck and includes a series of tests taking place during each step, including checking the platter level and suspension, running a speed test, and testing the earth bond to ensure it can handle the current.
The coup de grace is saved for last, the assembler signs their name on the finished deck."
