Re: Good Tidings of Great Joy to All People

Has this come about because a) you have recently cleaned all records with a high end cleaning machine or b) you have recently made upgrades to your kit?

Cheers

Cartridge Connecting Leads Query

I have a AT-F7 MC cartridge (Audio Technica) strapped to my Linn Basik Plus and I am extremely happy with it and it's price tag relative to other MC cartridges. I have bought a replacement AT-F7 and am going to replace pretty soon. Now my query is so: I have bought Audio Technica's own brand tonearm...

Re: Linn LP12 Belts

I did the same as Charlie1, albeit with a much lower spec LP12. Clocked (awesome noticeable hack) and changed back to the old Linn belt that I didn't throw out after buying new one for £50. Obviously better to get the new one I thought at the time, sure the old one has probably been on there for 20 ...

Re: Majik 109 Modification

Thanks, sorry I meant the Linn dealer would have the skill to do the mod if I gave him the hardware. I think you've answered my query anyway!

P.s. hi ThomasOk
You gave me sound guidance on the Linn forum when I was buying a Kisto. I went by the name CPG there.

Hope you're well. :)

Re: Which Linn Armboard?

Many thanks guys. It seems my choice is between the Armboard currently attached to my pre cirkus sub chassis (spot welded I think) or buy a new one. Trying to source 5/7 seems too much hassle and could very well backfire. I will give to my dealer here in Belfast who is a good guy and see what he thi...

Which Linn Armboard?

I am finally getting round to upgrading my 1979 LP12 with the Cirkus upgrade! I am looking forward to this as I have upgraded against the hierarchy norm (Hercules PS and Linto preamp were upgraded 1st) so I am hoping the difference will be even more noticeable than if had I done this 1st! It will be...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

Great stuff guys, much appreciated! Having taken note of discussion I recently took off my newer Linn belt (well over 100 hrs run in) and went hunting for my old belt to test. It is very conceivable that this belt dates back to the 80s and one of the main reasons I coughed up for the price hiked new...

LP12 belt cleaning

Split from "Playground"-thread. A simple change that will be succesfull to everybody with a turntable is cleaning the motor pulley, the inner platter and the belt with isopropyl alcohol. It is a sure winner! :-) What difference did you find and can you explain why the cleaning made a difference? Ma...

I would have thought that different mastering would only effect overall sound. Can it effect musicality too?

Re: ECM records start streaming via Tidal, Qobuz etc.

No I didn't unfortunately. Meant to add my streamer is Majik Ds. So I can only imagine the difference if compared with a more musical streamer.

Re: ECM records start streaming via Tidal, Qobuz etc.

Regarding the merits of Tidal and Qobuz I had the chance to compare recently given a free trial of the new tier of Qobuz hi res streaming. I have had Tidal for quite sometime and thoroughly enjoy it. I have no facility to play their MQA so no debate here. I couldn't wait to have all these lovely fil...

Re: What is all that “tune” fuss about?

Sounds lovely, many thanks.

LK100 was my 1st ever Linn piece. Still have it. Can't think of better value in their range (s/h), bar perhaps the AV5103 :)
