Linn Lingo 4 - noisy motors?
Anybody experienced issues with noisy motors with the new Lingo 4?

Does it go away with time ?

Have you problems all the time or does it increase when you change from 33.3 to 45?

How noisy is it, can you hear it when you are close the motorcorner of from your listeningposition?

Good luck!

Seems to have gone after running for several hours.....apparently not uncommon with the L4 motor

What is the foundation of this statement? (as so far no other reports appeared here)

How noisy is noisy?

Is this a "run-in" issue, i.e. when it's gone it's gone, or an intermittend noise that re-appears after some time?

Cheers, CW

When mine was newly fitted there was a kind of tweeting noise from the motor which has since gone away of its own accord. Also had a speed change issue now resolved by Loud and Clear. I know of at least one other with the same issues.

LP12 Stiletto/Plateau,LV11 J7 rewired,Denon 20xl.Bonnec Timpano, Moon Neo 330 and Proac D20Rs. All held together with bits of Chord.

My Lingo 4 is working perfectly. Initial bit of noise has disappeared.

Sound quality is also superb and I have to say quite a bit better than the Mober it has replaced.

Just more dynamic and alive.

Fabulous!

What do mean by perfectly? I thought nothing is perfect.

Really, Mober runs Switzerland Maxon high precision DC motor at a few volts and Lingo 4 use Premotec AC 12 V 24 poles synchronous motor. 12 V AC quieter than a few volts DC.

Lingo 4 check the speed at every 1.8 seconds, 1.8 seconds has many things happened, many pieces of music comes out from the loudspeaker. Mober checks the speed every 1/10 seconds, you really want to compare the two. Did you compare Radikal with your Lingo 4?

Don't get all defensive on us Edmond
There are those of us that use and love your mober on a price / performance basis
And those that will take the first chance to say how badly it performs ..no matter what
Just be sure that your product is great value and works well ...and let the odd bad comment go over your head
