Product Description

*Circus bearing

*Linn Lingo 1 power supply
The Linn Sondek LP12 deck is Linn's debut product and remains one of the most popular turntable decks in the world. Linn's reference standard transcription deck, it delivers unrivalled musical reproduction to get the most from your cherished vinyl collection.
At the heart of the Sondek LP12 is Linn’s patented, low-noise, single-point bearing. This advanced yet simple bearing design ensures the smooth motion of the turntable and eliminates noise to ensure that all you hear is the music.

The high mass, perfectly balanced, belt-driven platter maintains speed stability, while the addition of the solid wood plinth, suspended sub-chassis and stable arm platform combine to provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback. These precision-engineered components create a turntable with an unequalled ability to provide pitch accurate, faithful reproduction of your vinyl collection.

The Linn Lingo 1 power supply was first launched in 1990 and is an outboard power supply housed in a slim rectangular box. There are many sonic benefits in using a Linn Lingo over a Linn Valhalla power supply. Two very low noise crystal oscillators are used, one for 33 rpm and one for 45 rpm, the output of which is fed into a synchronous counter to produce a 50 Hz or 67.5 Hz square wave for 33 rpm and 45 rpm respectively. A precision filter is employed in the Linn Lingo to remove harmonics from the square wave leaving only a pure sinusoidal waveform, this allows the Sondek LP12 AC motor to run at its quietest, hence why it sounds better than a Linn Valhalla.
