Re: Liquid stylus treatments on Kandid.

Very soft paint brush for removing fluff balls. Green Paper every few sides, followed by a wipe with SPT. As Lyra make the Kandid for Linn, I don’t have an issue with using it. I also believe that David Williamson, the Kandid designer, uses it on his.

The wire is for the front mounted switch, is it not?

Re: Karousel

Bearing caps weren’t supplied with the early Karousels as they weren’t available at the time. The latest models are being supplied with black caps that fit the nut - I now have one of these. I’m also told that there is also a plug, but have yet to see one of these. If you didn’t get a cap with yours...

Re: Karousel

oil is included but the belt is not part of the kit - but wait until Hermann is confirming Thats correct. Plus some screws I couldn't match. So there is a little more in the kit than is commonly shown. Danke Marcel, Grüße aus Wuppertal zurück... The screws look like Cirkus mounting screws, so these...

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.
None taken, Tom. 😎

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: The Linn forum is officially dead

Now here's a turnup for the book.

I shall certainly be join...

I suppose it depends on the Ts &Cs that were signed up to? Personally, I’m not bothered, just interested in getting the good parts of the old forum back online. This is a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned. Admittedly, it could all have been handled much better, but, heck, we are wh...

Hifi Wigwam have created a “Linn Forum Users” section and are working with Linn to transfer across much of the Linn forum threads. I encourage displaced Linnie to he’d off over there.
