    The CD12 is quite simply the best CD player I’ve ever heard, cheapest too! I had one for a couple of years and sold it on for more than I paid, buying an Akurate DS to replace it... at first I thought the Akurate DS was better, but it wasn’t, took a Klimax DS to beat it.

    Yea had a full Akurate system. It was good sounding but gave it up due to drop out's and my poor IT skills. Went back to basics with a turntable.

    Hello to linnfomaniac83:
    I have had a LINN IKEMI cd player for many years, and now my transport mechanism is failing. This model (as you know) had special characteristics in the manufacture of the laser unit and the transport mechanism, which were not the same as the Gonki or Klassik models.
    The transport motor makes noise when placing the record, and it is difficult for it to do so, but once it gets in place, all the music still sounds great. It would be great to find someone to fix it for me. Would there be a way to send it in and have it fixed? How much would it cost me with the postage?.
    My address is in Canary Islands, Spain.
    Thank you for answering.

    The laser/mechanism is actually the same as used in the Classik and Genki, it’s the loading mechanism and the electronics that drive it that are very different.

    I will look into shipping, obviously there’s a lot going on at the moment with Brexit. It may be that the shipping is more expensive than the repair itself.

    Hello again linnfomaniac83:
    First of all, thanks for replying. As I am not sure if it is simply the transport mechanism (I am not a technician), and it could also be the loading mechanism and the electronics that drives it, could you tell me if you could get a replacement for that last thing and how much would the cost be then, fixing for everything, including both?.
    I would take care, from here, to find out informationout about the transport costs to where you are (I imagine in the United Kingdom). Then the return to the Canary Islands (Spain) you would have to consult yourself. I would bear all those expenses, of course.
    I leave you my private email (, because rather these are private matters, and I don't want to be bothering the rest of the Forum.
    Thanks a lot.
