I see they are still going. They repaired my LP12 that was damaged when shipped from the USA in 1990. Are there any recommendations as a Linn dealer? LP12 service springs to mind in the coming years.
Probably @Yeti knows. Audio synthèse is the main Linn dealer in Paris. I went to listen to some gear at their place already. But I don’t know if they are good or not for repairing or servicing.
Ok many thanks. As I said it was M. Vedel who repaired my turntable. I was a great deal younger then travelling from Versailles where we lived for 8 months to their old shop with an LP12 under my arm on the RER and Metro😁. Next time it will be possibly TGV est and Metro
No idea I’m afraid, the only Linn I’ve owned was their Basic cartridge back in the 80s.
An Lp12 on your arm in the metro ! Whouah ! I imagine your fear at that time.
I live in Versailles. Maybe we have walked very near one day in the street ? Studio hifi was existing already ?
But you know a shop in Paris who seems to be very knowledgeable on the turntables and cartridges world. They rebuilt your own cart. Maybe they can service an Lp12 ?
We lived in rue Victor Bart. Our daughter was born there as well with my wife and her in the clinic while I was just down the road at the chateau for the Versailles music festival with fountains and fireworks quite enjoyable. It was a short lived experience where we got acquainted with Paris and surroundings before moving to Toulouse.
I think the trip to Audio Synthèse required some walking where we maybe avoided the Metro. Can’t remember exactly. They also fitted a new Ittok LVIII and Linn MM cart. From what I remember they were thorough in their work and nice to deal with. Then again I was much less fussy in those days🤣
I am working as co director in the school rue Victor Bart. But the children are more from the poor buildings down the street. Toulouse is very nice too
Ana Mighty Sound, who did a great job on my Proteus and are vinyl enthusiasts but I didn’t see a Linn in their Paris shop among all the exotica, it wouldn’t hurt to ask.
They’re in the 20th and not near the metro. It was a bus from Gare de Lyon and walk for ten minutes or so. Visits are by appointment and there’s no shop front as such but they respond to Email readily enough.
Don’t misunderstood my post. Rue Victor Bart has also very nice houses . The school is at the end top of the street, in the very nice area.
No worries. It was a temporary stay before moving to Toulouse which was planned. We lived in an appartment at number 1 at the intersection of two roads. It was rather a nice appartment for our needs and 8 months
