Linn LP-12 with SME 3009 Tonearm and New Grado Cartridge
Legendary Linn LP12 turntable in great condition.
Has upgraded power supply, power switch, and vintage yet relevant SME tonearm. The hinges have been also upgraded to the modern style that hold the cover open automatically.
The armboard was refinished in a carbon fiber look for a more relevant appearance and is simply stunning. A fresh belt was also fitted.
Includes a removable original tonearm cable. There is no bottom cover but in my opinion it’s not needed.
I have tuned this table to perfection using the best tools available including a Linn tuning and spring adjustment table, Fozgometer azimuth meter, Pro-ject protractor, oscilloscope, and a plethora of test LP's.
Cosmetically the table is very nice considering its age. The wood finish is lush and free from significant fading or discoloration and the tonearm is intact. The cover has the usual light scratches and swirls but nothing too bad.
Included is the table, arm, cover, Grado cartridge, cable, and rare Operation and Service Manuals.
Table includes a basic Grado cartridge (not the pictured Sumiko) but we can fit any of the following options which will include calibration (about a 2hr detailed process of perfectly setting and calibrating many parameters to ensure highest performance).
New ClearAudio Concept $250
New Sumiko BluePoint #2 $449
New Sumiko BluePoint special Evo 3 $549
New ClearAudio Virtuoso V2 Ebony $899
New Sumiko Blackbird MC $1249
Pre-Owned Van-den-hall MC10 MC Cartridge ($1500) for $900
To purchase any of these just send an offer for the asking price of the table PLUS the cartridge cost above. It will take about a week to process and install.
