The Linn Sondek LP12 is perhaps the most widely reviewed turntable in the World. Almost every vinyl enthusiast knows it and is one of the most recognizable product in the hifi World. This LP12 had the more “basic” setup. It has the Linn Basik arm and a Shure V15V MR MM cartridge. This is analog at its best when budget is a consideration. The LP12 will spin 33’s unlike any other. If you want to understand what this recent resurgence in vinyl is all about, this is an affordable way to join the party. Put aside what you have been hearing from CDs, vinyl is all about unadulterated music. Cartridge is probably at the end of its life so a new replacement may be called for (as in the case with any used turntables, we always recommend replacing the cartridges since there is no way to accurately predict the hours on it).
Cosmetically, the unit is in nice shape. The dust cover closes fine but won’t stay up due to the cracked back panel and hinges. So it is literally used as a dust cover, When using the table, you just need to lift it off and place it aside and when you done, just slide it back on. Some scuff marks/splints on the wood panel but nothing major. Looks appropriate for its age. Local pickup only.
