Get the most from vinyl with Linn's fantastic LP12 upgrades

Radikal


Linn’s highest performance motor control and power supply available for the Sondek LP12 and comes complete with a brushed DC motor that replaces the standard LP12 AC motor. Radikal also powers the Urika's internal phono stage for LP12, where fitted. Radikal brings together several breakthrough technologies that enable a completely new and innovative approach to motor control in the LP12, significantly improving its performance.

Radikal’s speed management system auto-calibrates the motor every time the Sondek LP12 is powered on, ensuring perfect timing every time you use it.

Lingo 4

This external unit provides a clear upgrade from the internal Majik power supply. The role of the Lingo is to ensure that the LP12’s platter revolves at the correct speed, 33.3 or 45 rpm, at all times. It also ensures that no noise is issued from the turntable’s motor – a vital factor in extracting the maximum amount of information from every record.

Ekos SE

Linn’s flagship tonearm. Featuring a titanium arm tube and ultra-low friction bearings, it’s designed to extract the maximum information from your vinyl collection. Ultra-low friction bearings and temperature-compensated precision-springs ensure that the exceptional performance of the Ekos SE tonearm is maintained regardless of whether you are listening to your first track of the day or have been spinning records for hours.

Akito


Greatly improved since its introduction, the latest Akito benefited from the development of Ekos SE to produce a highly precise, smooth and quiet platform for your cartridge. A strong die-cast headshell is bonded to the main arm tube using advanced adhesives and together they provide a stable platform for supporting a wide range of cartridges

Keel

Keel is an integrated sub-chassis, armboard and tonearm collar, machined from a solid piece of aluminium to provide extremely rigid support to the tonearm and platter. Eliminating screws, fixings and joins between each component removes virtually all vibration, resulting in more accurate music reproduction. Adding Keel to any LP12 offers a significant leap in performance.

Kore

The kore sub-chassis and armboard is designed for extra rigidity, and removal of unwanted damping, making it a perfect performance upgrade for your Sondek LP12 turntable. It follows the design philosophies of the Keel (see above). The sub-chassis is strengthened by a multi-layer, box construction, using 1.5mm thick aluminium. Three parts are bonded together using a special Linn-specified adhesive together to form an incredibly stiff structure, whilst keeping the weight low.

Sub-Chassis

Sub-Chassis (the new basic) provides a solid and rigid platform for your LP12's platter and tonearm. The sub-chassis is strengthened by a multi-layer box construction, using 1.5mm thick aluminium. This makes it the ideal platform to get started with your first LP12, and also a good upgrade for customers with older LP12s, which will benefit from the increased rigidity of this latest design. The Standard LP12 Sub-Chassis is used together with the LP12’s standard five-layer sandwich-construction laminated armboard.

Kandid

Kandid is Linn’s best moving coil cartridge, designed to extract as much musical detail from your vinyl recordings as possible.The first thing you’ll notice about Kandid is that the motor housing is exposed. With no cartridge housing potential sources of resonance are removed, resulting in purer, cleaner sound, making all your vinyl sound better than ever. Linn Have kept the weight of the cartridge down by using a plastic front yoke screw rather than metal. As well as allowing the counterweight to be moved closer to the bearing point which gives a quicker reaction to changes in the vinyl, using a plastic screw eliminates any magnetic interference to the delicate coils in the cartridge.

Krystal

Krystal features a similar approach to minimising mass as Kandid, using a nude design to give the cartridge less inertia so it can react more quickly to the changes in the groove. It also uses the triple-point mounting system for a solid connection to the tonearm headshell, while the aircraft grade 7075 aluminium chassis provides a lightweight, stiff and stable platform for the generator. Even the adhesive used on Krystal was painstakingly selected to provide the most rigid bond possible to avoid any dampening effects.

Adikt

Adikt has been designed to retrieve a class-leading level of musical detail from the groove of a record, using an efficient and affordable moving magnet (MM) configuration. This makes it an ideal starting point for any quality vinyl playback system and its performance is more than a match for many more expensive moving coil (MC) designs. The Adikt cartridge features a rigid body and Gyger II replaceable stylus, both of which help to achieve a finely detailed and dynamic sound. It is easily mounted on a wide range of tonearms, including Linn’s Akito and Basik plus.

Trampolin II

Trampolin II is designed to provide the Sondek LP12 with additional isolation from vibration, the Trampolin’s feet use acoustic dampening material to minimise interference for improved audio performance. Trampolin is manufactured from high quality aluminium and is fixed directly to the wooden plinth of the turntable. The Trampolin base board can be specified on all new Sondek LP12 turntables and can also be used to upgrade your existing Sondek LP12.

Solid Base

Solid Base as supplied as standard on the Majik LP12. The Solid Base is manufactured from high quality aluminium and is fixed directly to the wooden plinth of the turntable. The Solid Base provides a fixed, rigid platform for the turntable. This is often preferred on set-ups where the turntable is placed on a cabinet or shelf that provides its own isolation from vibrations.

Give it a spin.

Vinyl brings you closer to art of music.
It's the difinitive version of the album. Depth, warmth and the slowing down of time is just a few words people use to describe the experience. 

''
Vinyl is much more special, you are connected to the music more. You can listen to the music properly, the way music should be heard.''

With a Linn turntable you get to hear more emotion, timing and rhythm.. it's just far more music!
