How to tell LP12 Valhalla or Basik
I have an LP12 that's probably early 90's vintage, maybe very late 80s. Trying to verify the power supply without opening it up, if possible.

It has a rocker switch with a single red light. I've been told that means it's a Valhalla rather than Basik, is that correct?

Should have a black switch with a small red light for Valhalla

RE: How to tell LP12 Valhalla or Basik
Thanks. So if there's a black rocker and red light it guarantees that it's Valhalla? The Basik didn't have a light?

When I bought the table it had a low-end black Linn arm on it, which I immediately replaced with an Ittok. Apparently there was an "LP12 Basik" (not the Basik table) version sold and that made me think that perhaps this might have been the non-Valhalla power supply.

I’m pretty sure that vintage was either Valhalla or Lingo, no Basik/Majik until much later on.

As far as I know, yes the black switch with one red light is a Valhalla , a plain red one is a basik, If I am wrong I hope a more knowledgeable member will correct me.

I did a Google search and there are several images of LP12s with Basik arms, all have the black switch with the single light.

Thanks
