I have a question with respect to the cross brace/bar. I have recently took the Lingo 2 out and installed the Akurate Radikal. I had a cross bar in my LP12 which was holding the motor control board and I left it where it was for better stability of the plinth. Are you supposed to take it off when you have a Radikal?

I left mine in place as I didn't think that it would affect anything - as to whether you should or not I have no idea!

I did remove all the plastic standoffs as potentially they could vibrate.

Pedro: Excellent - makes perfect sense. I'm about to install my Lingo 4 so wanted to get your read on this!

Thanks again.

No, you should always have the cross brace in place. It not only strengthens the plinth, it is what the nuts and washers press against to hold the top plate down.

As to the plastic standoffs I haven't tried with and without to see if it makes any difference (probably a worthwhile test at some point). You shouldn't have to worry about any vibration from them as the clips hold tight to the cross brace but they are likely to provide a little amount of damping. Whether that is good or not is what you would determine if you tested it both ways.

Hi guys
Quick question if I may ,would you still snip the grounding link on the xlr if you were fitting the nylon standoffs ?
Don't want to fiddle with it if there will be no benefit.
Many thanks Lee.

As having discovered the problem and suggested the fix, I say:
No, your don't need to snip the grounding link on the XLR if you're using the nylon standoffs that were eventually supplied.
