Take A Ride On The Linn Karousel

Posted by March 6th, 2020

Linn have just announced a new bearing upgrade for the Sondek LP12 turntable.

Designated as the Karousel, this is a new, innovative precision-engineered design which will improve vinyl reproduction from every LP12 ever made.

Linn Karousel bearingThe unique single-point bearing, combined with the acoustic isolation of the turntable design, were the foundations on which Linn was established in 1973, the bearing design even providing the inspiration for the Linn logo.

Testament to its ground-breaking design, the basic principles of the bearing have remained and Linn Karousel is only the third evolution of this design in almost 50 years.

This innovative take on the design for 2020 has been made possible by technological developments around the material science, machining capabilities and mechanical engineering expertise gained from almost half a century of designing and manufacturing the world’s best turntable.
