Stereonet - Past Masters: Linn Sondek LP12 Turntable

Over on Stereonet, there’s an interesting article by David Price detailing the history and evolution of the LP12, including a serial number and dated timeline for when the key improvements were introduced. Well worth a read over a coffee - just google Stereonet.

“David Price looks back on nearly fifty years of this iconic Scottish super deck…”

I had the Grace 707 on firstly my Rega, then my Afro LP12 - wished I’d kept it!


Just read this. Good to see a pic of the old style lid that I still have on my LP12.

Lots of us wish we had kept our LP12, getting rid of mine (promptly broken up for spares) was one of my biggest audio mistakes, matched by giving away my Ruark Sabres ( :disappointed_relieved: :disappointed_relieved: :disappointed_relieved:)

I have a lovely Clearaudio but the idea of an LP12 with a bespoke colour won’t go away .

As you can see from the background I like yellow

I think as I get older and life seems more ‘’ beige’’ I have started to like vibrant colours

Class A’s (HiFi Repairs) Linn page has a very detailed Timeline for the LP 12.

I would put a link, but… rules.
