Introduced in 1972, the Sondek LP12 was Linn’s first product. Launched at a time when amplifiers and loudspeakers were seen as being most critical to the performance of any system, the Sondek LP12 showed that extracting more information from the record itself had the biggest effect on the quality of the music system.
For over 40 years, each component has been continuously improved to extract even more information from a vinyl record.
Designed to be completely modular and upgradeable, the Sondek LP12 is available as a separate deck, to which customers can add their preferred sub-chassis, base, motor control, tonearm and cartridge.
It can be customised to any performance level with Linn’s range of turntable separates, or purchased as a complete turntable preconfigured to Klimax, Akurate or Majik specification.
At the heart of the Sondek LP12 is Linn’s patented low-noise, single-point bearing. This advanced yet simple bearing design ensures the smooth motion of the turntable and eliminates noise to ensure that all you hear is the music.
The high mass, perfectly balanced, belt-driven platter maintains speed stability, while the solid wood plinth, suspended sub-chassis and stable arm platform combine to provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback.
The combination of these precision-engineered components creates a turntable with an unequalled ability to provide pitch-accurate, faithful reproduction of your cherished vinyl collection.
The Sondek LP12 is available in a choice of high-quality real wood finishes. Standard finishes are Black Ash, Cherry, Oak, Rosenut and Walnut. For a truly bespoke LP12, ask for a quote on a custom wood finish of your choice.
