Tangerine Audio

Tangerine Audio, founded by Mark Digman and the late Derek Jenkins, is a specialist audio manufacturer based outside London. Tangerine has developed an enviable reputation for producing precision upgrade products for the Linn Sondek LP12 turntable.

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to supply estore orders to countries in the European Union



All of Tangerine's products are designed and manufactured to the highest level of precision here in the UK using some of the top engineering and fabrication companies available.

Tangerine Audio Phoenix sub-chassis

Phoenix sub-chassis

The Tangerine Audio Phoenix is a one piece sub chassis machined from a solid billet of aluminium.

This brings clear sonic benefits and represents a significant upgrade option for the Linn Sondek LP12.

Particular attention has been given to mass and weight distribution, lessening the burden on the back spring on the tonearm side.

The crucial coupling of the bearing housing is optimised by the provision of three lands to which the bearing housing can be mounted.

At £1895.00 it represents excellent value and we are pleased to have Phoenix on demonstration here at Cymbiosis.

Tangerine Audio Karmen top plate

Karmen top plate

The Karmen top plate was the first product designed by Tangerine Audio for use with Linn’s iconic Linn Sondek LP12 turntable. This 3rd party replacement for the LP12’s original stainless steel top plate is precision-machined from a solid billet of aluminium and comes with bespoke fixings and a machined cross-brace. Although the technical specifications remain a closely guarded secret, Tangerine use only the highest grade materials, chosen for their specific application.

In comparison to the standard top plate, the Karmen brings greater musicality and flow, improved dynamics, deeper, better-defined bass and maintains the LP12’s impeccable timing. All this coupled with an incredibly quiet background makes for a more realistic and engaging performance and, as many of our customers tell us, represents a serious upgrade to the Linn Sondek LP12.

Available in a brushed silver or black finish, this is a clever and attractive upgrade for your Linn Sondek LP12 and needs to be heard!

Tangerine Audio Plateau

Tangerine Audio Plateau

Following on from the success of their Karmen top plate, Tangerine Audio have now introduced their new Plateau sub-chassis for the Linn Sondek LP12 turntable.

Plateau is a two-part system with both the chassis and arm board being machined from high-grade, solid aluminium billet. The arm board itself is finished to the highest standards and looks superb on the Linn Sondek LP12. What’s more, it supports Linn, Naim ARO and Rega mounts, giving you a wider choice of arm than is the case with some sub-chassis options.

The Plateau’s sub-chassis and arm board feature the same machined grooving on the underside as the established Karmen top plate, something of a Tangerine hallmark. The sub-chassis also features three lands where the bearing housing and arm board are mounted to achieve superior contact, resulting in better performance.

The increase in the turntable’s performance and enjoyment is not subtle; there is an extension in the bass, more detail and better timbre, together with exceptional timing.

We are delighted to announce that both Plateau and Karmen are now available for demonstration here at Cymbiosis.

Tangerine Audio Stiletto

Tangerine Audio Stiletto

Tangerine Audio’s new flagship product Stiletto is a one-piece, aluminium plinth/top plate.

It is machined from a solid billet of aluminium, the top plate section being the same as the Tangerine Audio Karmen.

Stiletto takes the Linn Sondek LP12 into uncharted territory and raises the performance bar to a new level, it is quite simply stunning.

Tangerine Audio consider this to be the most exciting thing they have done and it is on demonstration here at Cymbiosis.
