Re: Karousel

But since I started this, here is what it’s like after the Karousel (language warning):

Any need for that?

‘troll
I’m sorry, ‘troll. I did look for something from Linn but found nothing so far on consumer or dealer websites. Considering the tone earlier in the thread I just couldn’t resist the perfect setup! :-) No harm intended.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

I think maybe the 160 has dipped off in the second recording. So many variables, including the old iphone which is now being used by my daughter to communicate with friends - I sometimes forget to disable the wifi for example. I think unless I record at the same time then too many things can change...

Re: Karousel

Hi, Clear that it is not limited to LP12 only. But you are saying that it is not limited to upgrades only so it is also possible to buy eg an amplifier, speaker or cables? Yes, that is exactly what I am saying as it is what Linn has said to me. Amplifiers, DS, DSM, speakers, cables, Exaktboxes, etc...

Re: Karousel

Ah Thomas, That’s good info on the torque for Keel will run with my Sturtevant driver. Do you know if it’s a dealer only fit? I’m supposing it is. Regards It is recommended as dealer fit, as are all Linn LP12 upgrades and most of their other upgrades. Fitting is included in the price. But as with a...

Re: Karousel

Well, I think I have the Karousel tomorrow. My dealer sent it out yesterday. I'll have it installed in the next few days, probably Monday. The only question is the torque, which according to Peter @Cymbiosis should be 4Nm for the Keel. Also the question how far the Sturtevant tool can be used. Yes,...

Re: Karousel

You seem to be missing the point that at the price of a new Akurate LP 12 (9,000 €) you can get a deck more musical than a Klimax LP 12 (more than 20,000 €) without Karousel. M And that is fantastic news for the Akurate LP12 owner, that for approximately 11% of their initial outlay they receive suc...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

I have been very pleased overall with the plinths Chris Harban makes. However, each plinth wood has a different sound and there are also variances from one plinth to another. I don't want to go over old ground that much here so see this thread for a fair bit more information: https://www.lejonklou.c...

Have anyone been able to listen to the Karousel? Thomas? Unfortunately I haven't, nor do I know when I will. Linn did start shipping them early and the store received shipping confirmation for our first two for demo LP12s Friday. Additional units were supposed to follow in several batches about a w...

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

Actually, Chris Harban changed his plinth dimensions years ago having realized that there could be a fitment problem. He even sold me a plinth or two at a discount as they weren’t tall enough to comfortably fit a Radikal.

Re: LP12 Radikal problem

I think the answer would depend on your definition of solved. The plinths I have seen on newer LP12s for about the last year or more have generally been 66mm, including our demo Majik LP12 with the new Majik arm, and none of them have had the problem. However our demo Klimax LP12, which is over two ...

Does anybody know what type of wood will be selected for their new color plinths? Or what type of paint they will use? And will the new finish hav...

Re: Radikal connection question

thank you TMV. I will start over. I have an LP12, with a Kandid and a Radikal. No Urika. Will the Radikal connect to the MM phono stage of a McIntosh (4100) receiver? Why don't you just get a (second-hand) Urika 1? It would fit right in to your system. Or maybe a Lejonklou Entity MC preamp? Yes. Th...

Re: Karousel

The promo definitely is not limited to LP12 upgrades. I tried to clarify this today with our Linn rep. and was informed that the only Linn product excluded is the new Series 3 wireless speaker. All other Linn products qualify for the free Karousel. In the US the amount is $4000 of additional product...
