I raised this as my LP12 was reasonably high-spec years ago.
LP12/Cirkus/original Lingo/Linto (recenty serviced)/original Ekos and various cartridges from K9 through Arkiv and various OC-9s.
The black plinth I find boring these days and it’s a bit worn.
Quite tempted by the Karousel offer, but just wondering if I might be better off keeping my original and getting a new basic one with a few upgrades - could move the Ekos to a new one and stick an original Akito I have onto the old one.
Not sure if this makes sense but I’d likely go for a Keel or Kore/Karousel and maybe Lingo 4 or Radikal (no idea which).
I’d lose my old subchassis, Cirkus and Lingo which are still fine to my mind if I upgraded.
Might be nice to have a second LP12.
We have various ‘combo’ options at different price points - it would be nice to specify a plinth, choose a sub-chassis, and maybe re-use my Ekos - I’m just not sure if this is possible without buying basic options on the base model and wasting components that you instantly replace.
