Linn Sondek LP12 Baseboards

Linn, Just Listen....Linn, based in Glasgow, Scotland, was founded in 1973 by Ivor Tiefenbrun. They are world leaders in digital streaming products as well as speakers, amplification and, of course, turntables, with the iconic LP12.

Research has shown that a turntable's musical performance can be considerably altered by choosing a proper surface or support structure on which to place it.

There are two different baseboards offered by Linn for the LP12, allowing you to support your LP12 on a variety of hi-fi turntable supports. Linn have spent a considerable amount of time and effort in developing the Linn Trampolin 2 and Solid Baseboard which are described below.

Linn Trampolin 2

Designed to provide additional isolation for Sondek LP12 turntables, the Trampolin 2 is manufactured from high quality aluminium. The main body is attached directly to the wooden plinth of the turntable using a total of ten screw fixings so there is virtually no movement between the plinth and base. It is also earthed to the chassis.

The Trampolin features an acoustic dampening material diaphragm between it and its four feet to minimise interference and provide even better audio performance on a wide range of surfaces. The Trampolin 2 can therefore now be soundly recommended for use with the LP12 in pretty much most situations and with most supports.

Linn Solid Baseboard

The simpler solid baseboard is also available with a new rigid, high quality, aluminium base. There’s also an earth through to the LP12 chassis.

However, in contrast to the Trampolin, the feet attach at the four corners directly into the plinth via a single screw. Results with some stands, like the Mana turntable supports in particular, maybe preferred. If you are in doubt as to which baseboard to use with your turntable or Hi-fi stand, we will be happy to offer advice.
