RE: Linn LP 12 Purchase
It seems that all you need now is a new matching cart.

Remember that proper set up is crucial for optimal performance.

Happy listening and long live vinyl Wink

Please don't solder those wires. Use new set of attachment wires with connection terminals. Heat from soldering iron may destroy the cartridge.

Buy a new set ~ Not expensive. Dynavector supply as an example.

As you look at your picture, white bottom right pin, red bottom left. Then blue goes above white and green above red.

This is for Tonearm connections, not cartridge, just to be clear.

RE: Linn LP 12 Purchase
Trampolin is one item that is less certain in it's application & preference. Price is OK. Tramp 2 is more structural than Tramp 1. Conventional wisdom is that if you have your LP12 on a light rigid stand you don't need Tramp, if you are placing it on a heavy, dense item then you benefit from Tramp. I'm about to try one. You need to trust your ears. Some like it & some don't. I've always liked my Linn with no base at all.
