Expert Turntable LINN LP-12 Upgrades and Tuneup

Since 1978 I have sold and serviced Linn Products of Scotland. My expertise with the venerable LP-12 goes back to 1973 when I purchased my first Linn LP-12 turntable. For the past twenty years plus we have received LP-12 turntables arriving from all over the United States for service, as well as implementing a large variety of high performance upgrades. I carry almost all LP-12 replacement parts and upgrades in stock at all times, as well as a fair number of available after-market upgrades.

The LP-12, with its assorted tonearms and cartridges, is now the longest lived high end audio product currently still in production, having been originally introduced in 1972. Over the course of that time they have taken what was a fundamentally correct design and, in evolutionary fashion, have proceeded over the intervening years to meticulously improve on all parts and parameters of this classic iconic design. In the same way that Porsche took the 911 from back in the early 60s and made it into today’s iconic sports car that all others in its price bracket are still being compared to, to this day, so Linn have also worked at improving the performance of the LP-12 over the intervening forty seven years. Because of the ongoing research by Linn to continually make the LP-12 an increasingly better product, it is still sonically way ahead of all its “revolutionary” turntable competition in their respective price ranges to this day.

i have a long and very deep reputation for excellent work and timely turnaround to all those bringing their cherished LP-12s in to be worked on, repaired and upgraded. There is no better place to have a Linn LP-12 purchased or serviced. I do all the work myself to insure that my standards of quality are meticulously upheld.

For those outside our local area, we can provide complete packing and all inserts for those who do not have adequate packing. I give easy, complete directions on how to pack and ship your unit, as well as simple, easy to follow directions on setting your unit up once we return it back to you. Call or email me with any questions if interested in what I can provide for improving the performance of your Linn deck.
