[FS] Linn Sondek LP12 Black Ash

    Black ash Linn Sondek. Plinth good condition for age, with nice grain finish.

    Deck serviced with Linn tools (T-Bar, Kinki etc.), with new springs and grommets; oil change and clean.

    Valhalla PSU, also just serviced. Speed set with Linn disc.

    Black liner, pre-cirkus bearing in good condition.

    Tonearm bearings had sticking points so both sets have been replaced and arm re-wired with Cardas tonearm wire at the same time. This work was completed by myself and arm moves freely without excess play and meets Linn ‘swing’ spec for Akito. I’ve repaired a few Akitos for friends etc. with good results, but I’m not a professional arm repairer, so this I’ve reflected in the price. Mentioned here for transparency.

    Cartridge is a Linn K9 body, with new Audio Technica AT95 VW 95E. It has only been used for testing.

    Listed as collection - price doesn’t include packing and postage. I’m located in Chelmsford, Essex and am happy for anyone to come and have an inspection and listen before potential purchase.

    £750 (collection please).

    I travel from York to down south quite a bit. I'd be happy to be an LP12 taxi if someone wants.

    Thanks to those that have expressed an interest.

    It seems that the 'collection only' is a blocker, (especially given some of the recent fuel concerns) so I've bought a proper Linn LP12 Box. As those interested are probably aware, they aren't cheap, so I will need to pass the cost of this on to the buyer. Also, if you do choose the shipment option please bear in mind that I'll be removing the arm for shipment so you'll need some familiarity for re-assembly on arrival. I can advise on this if you're not sure.

    £750 collection (excludes packing) - still happy to demonstrate (the deck is on my rack and wired up).
    £830 plus Postage to ship (includes new LP12 packing from Linn). UK shipment only though please.

    I like the look of this deck. It looks 'honest', is clean and tidy and the price is fine for what it is. Nice record player.

    Nice looking LP12, Linn red plastic bearing cap? You may already have one, if you end up posting, a bearing cap will be very useful to keep the oil in. I can let you have one if required.

    I'd put new oil in it anyway.

    Thank you for the offer, it's very kind of you. I have a bearing cap thanks and the deck has just had an oil change.
