Product Description

Linn's flagship Klimax LP12 turntable is the summit of modern vinyl reproduction, establishing the benchmark for competing turntables on the market globally.

Linn Quality

Klimax LP12 is enhanced by Linn's precision-engineered upgrades. As a result of the timeless modular design, you know it will always be up to date with future upgrades. This new generation of the Klimax LP12 is based on over 40 years of research and development. Each accurately manufactured upgrade unearths more music from the record groove.

Keel Subchassis

A Keel integrated sub-chassis, armboard and tonearm collar provides the Klimax LP12 with a dramatic boost in performance. Crafted from a solid block of aluminium, it provides an extremely rigid support for the tonearm and platter. The design maintains the same mass and centre of gravity, while Keel integrates impeccably with the suspension system. Screws, fixings and joints are eliminated to remove virtually all vibration.

Trampolin Baseboard

Crafted from high quality aluminium, the Trampolin base board is the best performance choice and can be fixed directly to the wooden plinth. Expertly-designed suspended feet provide additional isolation from vibration using acoustic dampening material to reduce interference for improved audio performance.

Radikal Power Supply

Klimax LP12 incorporates a high performance Radikal motor control and power supply complete with a brushed DC motor. Radikal powers the Urika internal phono stage and merges revolutionary technologies to enable a completely new and innovative approach to motor control. Radikal’s speed management system auto-calibrates the motor for perfect timing. With drastically reduced electromagnetic noise levels, the brushed DC motor greatly enhances the signal-to-noise ratio bringing you even closer to the music

Ekos SE Tonearm

Built to last and hand-made to the highest quality, Ekos SE uses progressive materials selected for performance and low resonance to give you more from your vinyl collection. Machined from titanium, the arm tube reduces resonance and the stainless steel housing ensures accurate movement. Ultra-low friction bearings and temperature-compensated springs maintain exceptional performance over long periods of use.

Kandid Cartridge

Kandid is Linn’s top moving coil cartridge, designed to for maximum detail extraction. The exposed motor housing removes potential sources of resonance for purer, cleaner sound. The low cartridge weight is enabled by using a plastic front yoke screw rather than metal. Kandid’s assembly structure has been designed to perfectly partner with the Linn Ekos SE tonearm. It is constructed around a machined 7075 aluminium alloy body for complete rigidity and has unique triple-point mounting system for more rigid and accurate coupling.

Urika Phono Stage

The unique Urika MC phono stage is internally mounted fitting snugly and working with Radikal to deliver a new standard in performance. Located within the plinth, it is as close to the tonearm as possible minimising cable length and therefore signal loss and noise. Mounted on its own integrated Trampolin base board, the phono stage is also isolated from unwanted vibrations. To ensure consistent and faithful reproduction of the music, Urika features a dual mono design that banishes any potential crosstalk.

Press Reviews

  • ‘Linn’s LP12 remains one of the finest turntables around. This Klimax version may be expensive but it is a massively capable and neatly configured deck… Informative, dynamic and exciting presentation, sensational dynamics and surefooted with rhythms, excellent build and finish.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2017)

  • ‘Every part of the Klimax LP12 has the aura of carefully honed engineering coupled to fit and finish of the highest level. There’s the unmistakable feel of a product that will carry on working for years to come and, given Linn’s track record, continue to be improved when technology allows.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2017)

  • ‘There’s just so much detail; every instrumental strand is brushed up for inspection yet it all still comes together as a cohesive and engaging whole. And it’s great fun too… It delivers this track with real punch and precision while losing nothing in composure as the music builds to its climax.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2017)

  • ‘It delivers a sound of huge scale and power, punching out the music’s demanding crescendos with passion. Yet, despite all the sonic fireworks there’s still space for fluid dynamics and low-level subtleties that turn the listening experience into a real thrill.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2017)

  • ‘Importantly, there’s an evenness to the presentation that means we’re not distracted by peaks or troughs in any particular part of the frequency range. The upside of such a sound is a sense of immediacy and agility that most rivals would struggle to better.’ (What Hi-Fi Magazine April 2017)
