Linn Karousel Updated

20th May 2020

The LP12 Just Got Better Still...

One of the key elements of any turntable is the main platter bearing and this has always been a key element of the Linn Sondek LP12 design from its conception in 1974.

Linn have recently announced the new Karousel, their precision-engineered single-point bearing, offering smoother rotation and greater stability for even better sound from your Sondek LP12.

This innovative new take on the Linn bearing design has been made possible by technological developments in material science, machining capabilities and mechanical engineering expertise gained from almost half a century of designing and manufacturing the world’s best turntable.

That vital union between the platter, spindle, bearing and sub-chassis is now the strongest Linn have ever achieved, with the substantial lock-nut fastening within the stainless steel housing increasing rigidity at the critical point where bearing and sub-chassis come together.

Enhancements to the base of the bearing include a stronger housing for the thrust pad which, when combined with a smaller, stiffer form, improves the critical area that supports the platter rotation and mass, meaning your vinyl reproduction is more accurate and detailed than ever before.

All new LP12 turntables will come fitted with Karousel. For those who already own an LP12, the Karousel can be added to the turntable to upgrade its performance further still.
