Valhalla Electronics LP12 Motor Controllers

Posted by January 15th, 2024

Valhalla Electronics Zeus Power Supply For Linn Sondek LP12Peter is pleased to announce that Cymbiosis is now supplying and fitting the Valhalla Electronics range of motor controllers for the Linn Sondek LP12 turntable.

The Linn LP12 and Valhalla controllers are excellent but they can be substantially improved upon. Accurate, stable speed control is essential for extracting the best out of the vinyl format – without getting that right we are building our hi-fi listening pleasure on shaky foundations.

Wear of the belt, bearing and stylus drag also have a big impact on speed stability and most Valhalla boards and Premotec/Linn motor combinations actually run slightly off speed from the start and unless you resort to mechanical adjustment there is no way to correct this easily and certainly not frequently as the mechanical and electrical components tolerances drift.

Enter the Zeus controller! The Zeus uses a speed sensor to detect the platter rotation speed and correct the rotation to achieve stunning accuracy down to 0.001Hz. this results in speed stability typically to three decimal places. Variations of belt, bearing, motor, vinyl condition and stylus drag are accounted for every two seconds. The improvement in pitch, rhythm and overall timbre are astounding. Available as internal or external versions.

We also have available, the Minos controller, which is a replacement for non-speed sensing motor power supplies.

Please contact Peter for more details or call on 01664 420171.
