NEW Linn Sondek LP12 Upgrades

Posted by June 17th, 2022

Linn products have just announced three exciting new upgrades for the Sondek LP12 turntable all at once.

There is a connection here though as there is a new tonearm, Arko, plus two new cartridges, Kendo and Koil.

Arko

Linn Arko TonearmWith Arko, Linn have returned to fundamentals, by removing all bar the mission-critical elements of tonearm design, boiling these down to their essence, and then honing what was left to superlative standards. Perfectly poised and rigorously refined, Arko is effortless simplicity.

This tonearm features an ultra-stable gimbal platform which facilitates superb bearing concentricity and alignment. Its arm wand travels in space with minimum hindrance; the affixed cartridge bobs and moves with the warps and grooves of the record, with finesse and fluidity.

One of the earliest Sondek LP12 magazine adverts bore the straightforward headline “Simplicity!”. Linn have returned to fundamentals with Arko, by removing all bar the mission-critical elements of tonearm design, boiling these down to their essence, and then honing what was left to superlative standards. Perfectly poised and rigorously refined, Arko is effortless simplicity.

Kendo

Linn Kendo Moving Coil CartridgeKendo is a modern martial art form; translated from the Japanese it means “way of the sword”. At Linn however, the word has unique connotations. Linns sword is forged of boron, with a super-fine-line diamond tip. Linns armour is nickel-coated, 7075-grade aluminium. Kendo is the eager apprentice to its master, the flagship Ekstatik, sharing the same values and picking up many of its traits along the way.

Kendo is the outcome of the Linn engineers’ efforts to capitalise on the elements of Ekstatik which work so well; using their tried-and-true, trickle-down development methodology to produce a more affordable, high-performance cartridge which retains the same core design principles and acoustic fingerprint.

Koil

Linn Koil Moving Coil CartridgeKoil is a superb first step onto the ladder of premium moving coil cartridges. This Majik-level cartridge provides a step up in performance from Adikt; and is available either as an upgrade, or fitted as standard to a new Majik LP12 MC.

Choose Koil if you intend to use your Majik LP12 with a moving coil phono preamplifier. Upgrade from Adikt to progress your journey along the path to vinyl playback perfection.

 

 

Peter expects to have these new products available for demonstration within the next couple of weeks so to get more information and to pre-book your own personal demonstration, please contact Peter now.
