Karousel, Linn’s new precision-engineered single-point bearing, offers smoother rotation and greater stability. It raises the bar for vinyl reproduction yet again and is an essential upgrade for every Sondek LP12 turntable ever made. This innovative new take on Linn’s original 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 they’ve ever achieved. The substantial lock-nut fastening on the stainless steel housing increases 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, and 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.
- Stainless Steel Bearing design improves rigidity and stability
- Stronger, stiffer thrust pad and housing reduces vibration effects on music reproduction
- Retro-fittable to any LP12
The kit includes the bearing housing, subplatter with spindle, suspension springs, rubber grommets, lock nuts, washers, earth lead.
