There are lots of LP12 users on here, many who have had them for 30 years, so you are just the people to give me a steer…
My ancient LP12 has Core, Karousel, Ekos, Lingo 4 and Krystal, feeding SL/52/SC/250.
Following recent experiments, i now have granite and rubbery feet between it & the Targett wall shelf - the visual loser but acoustic winner. It now sounds better to me that any comparable LP12 I have heard on a wall shelf or Fraim.
However, that process reminded me that my baseboard is the oldest and flimsiest imaginable, and getting as saggy as Bagpuss.
I could get a new standard LP12 baseboard from Linn.
I could get a Trampolin 2 from Linn instead.
I could get a replacement baseboard from a third party provider.
I could ignore the whole thing if no SQ benefit is available, and just take care when picking it up.
Has anyone changed from the thin old baseboard to any of the above? What was the effect on SQ? What spec LP12 and supported by what?
I appreciate that whatever I do may mean having to change what is under my LP12 - I don’t want multiple sets of suspension interacting in weird ways.
For example, Stack Audio has a few potentially good options, but do encourage me to use their baseboard and sprung support platform together.
I am also aware that Stack is only one option, and look to have no dealer anywhere near Wimbledon.
Is it worth sending any money on this at all?
