@Ludwig271, As you I hate the BFA receptacles used in Linn older amps, they tend to loose the grip very easily which could end in a disaster if the connection between the BFA male connector and the BFA receptacle gets broken while palying music (blown amp). About a year ago Fred commented here on ho...

The bigger question for most potential customers is whether they want to deal with something like a plastic cap covering the hole in their beautiful Keel when they upgrade the arm. That's the reason I have not bought the Keel. Drill a $3,200 USD aluminum sub-chassis and later cover the hole with a ...

When I went to Linn I was told by the guy rebuilding their MC cartridges that Supex designed and made the Trak, Asak, and Asak-T. The Asak-A, Karma and Troika were designed by Linn but made by Supex. The Troika was an afterthough from Linn to enhance the Karma. The Basik, K-9, K-18 and K18-II were A...

Hi,

To give you an idea I just paid $178.00 USD for a used Troika in need of a rebuild. In eBay they have been selling between $165.00-$185.00 USD lately.

Hi, Members from the PFM forum and the Linn forum have favorably recommended Esco for the rebuild. AFAIK they use the tune method to evaluate their systems (be it Linn, Naim, etc.) and some of them have had their Troikas rebuilt by EsCo more times than I can count! Still haven't specified which part...

The dealer in UK who I bought the Jelco from even claims that Jelco were the makers of some version of Linn Ittock arm. That maybe true for the original Ittok LV-II since it was manufactured in Japan to Linn specs. BTW, the tonearm designer last name was 'Itto'. AFAIK, Ittok LV-IIIs were manufactur...
