Linn Sondek LP12

So I use a longer screw and it works fine. It was at its most popular in the golden age of vinyl playback, principally the s through to the s. A Troika or Karma bought as cheap as possible and sent to EsCo for a re-build would be an excellent match and, of the ones you mention, I’d personally avoid the Ortofons listed, as all of them sounded a bit crude and nothing like as good as a top notch mm to me It builds on the Cirkus upgrade now fitted as standard to new LP12s but is not included as standard in ‘regular’ production LP12s.

With regard to the OC5 and 9 – the 5 is OK but not in the same class as the others mentioned; linh 9 is not to my taste at all – far too yin and not enough yang as they used cartricges say in the Absolute Soundjust too lean and emotionally detached though better in this respect than some Dynavectors.


The Sondek LP12 turntable, introduced inutilises a suspended sub-chassis design and a patented tightly-toleranced single-point bearing. Two years in development, Krystal uses the design principles of our leading moving coil cartridge Kandid to capture the minute changes in the record groove, letting you hear every musical detail. The arm tube is machined from titanium to reduce resonance and a stainless steel bearing housing ensures precision of movement.

Ivor Tiefenbrun toneatms talked about how Sondek derives from the word Soundex as each hi-fi design always ends up having its own unique identifiable and recognisable sound.

Linn — Cartridges

I can only imagine the OC9 would be ‘more of the same’. So, cartridves important upgrade you should consider is the armboard and base board too–and we are making it.

To be honest, I’m a firm believer in the ‘source first’ principle at least with regard to turntables – which is tonearks that interests me and would place the deck well ahead of the arm and both significantly ahead of the cartridge. The thinking at the time was that the most important component of a high-end audio system is the loudspeakers.
