RE: Linn LP12 Klimax review from What hifi
I agree completely with you David. It's a great five star review from a magazine that has a reputation for the most honest and unbiased reviews. . .

And I believe my LP12 Klimax - (just waiting for the Kandid) came from the same Linn specialist :-)

I think this proves that when an LP 12 is properly set up it becomes the Stradivarius or Fender of turntables. . .

quote....Verdict
There’s no denying that the range-topping LP12 is a mighty expensive thing. It also doesn’t help that it looks little different from decks made decades ago.

If i may offer a suggestion...TongueTongue


           

...just sayin'.......Dave...Tongue
Cheers Tony

Linn stuff.....Klimax Radikal, Urika, Ekos SE, Kandid, Uphorik, 2 Keel's,2 LP12's......and a Partridge (somewhere) in a Pear tree!!

Linn and Leica are the only companies I know of who continue with an iconic external design whilst completely upgrading the internal technology. And long may it continue, my current LP12 sounds so much better than the first one I bought in 78 (God that dates me!). . .

Probably right :-), but your expanded list does prove my point . . .

Ha ha ha!

Yes. It's certainly part of the LP12's appeal for me at any rate!

You might say that the LP12 constitutes Trigger's ultimate broom. Big Grin
