I too had thought about going for the Cirkus upgrade but reckon I'll get myself a better PSU first. The candidates are:

Heed Orbit
Linn Lingo
Armageddon

LP12/Maple/Cirkus/RubiKon/Radikal/Tranquillity
Ittok LVII (unique)/ASAKA (Goldring rebuilt)
JVC AX Z1010TN integrated amplifier (yes, really!)
SARAs-external crossovers and as new!

Your power switch is the wrong way up!

Hi Lefty ,
It's a great cartridge isn't it !
Another package arrived from Diverse Vinyl this morning and after a quick whizz on the Moth I'm settling down to a nice afternoon off work .
You are probably quite right about the power supply , yet one more thing to consider in the future . Big Grin

What arm rest is on your ittok? I have a split counterweight LVII (highly modified) but it still has the board mounted arm rest.

Hi,

if you have a closer look, you will see that the LP 12 is not the same as Linn supplied it in 1990 due to the 1.200 g alu alloy inside Wink

I safed some money to buy an EKOS and I don't want to drill a hole for the original rest so the rest is provisionally made out of isolated copper lead fixed to the lift.

Unfortunatelly the Ekos must wait, because I have to spend the money into new cart.

It looks like a LVIII/2 which has the Ekos style arm-rest .

By the way flatpopely I really enjoyed your threads in the "other place" about overhauling and modifying your arm .Especially all the photo's along the way . Smile
