Product Description

The Linn Sondek LP12 deck is Linn's debut product and remains one of the most popular turntable decks in the world. Linn's reference standard transcription deck, it delivers unrivalled musical reproduction to get the most from your cherished vinyl collection.

Iconic turntable

Introduced in 1972, the Sondek LP12 was Linn’s first product and helped demonstrate that the most important element in any quality music system is the source of the music itself. Launched at a time when amplifiers and loudspeakers were seen as being most critical to the performance of any system, the Sondek LP12 showed that extracting more information from the record itself was the most critical challenge. Quite simply, information lost at the source is lost forever.

Since its introduction over 30 years ago the Sondek LP12 has been the turntable by which all others are judged and each component has been continuously improved to extract even more information from a vinyl record.

Engineered for excellence

At the heart of the Sondek LP12 is Linn’s patented, low-noise, single-point bearing. This advanced yet simple bearing design ensures the smooth motion of the turntable and eliminates noise to ensure that all you hear is the music.

The high mass, perfectly balanced, belt-driven platter maintains speed stability, while the addition of the solid wood plinth, suspended sub-chassis and stable arm platform combine to provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback. These precision-engineered components create a turntable with an unequalled ability to provide pitch accurate, faithful reproduction of your vinyl collection.

Build your LP12

The price stated is for the turntable only, allowing you to fit your own tonearm and cartridge. We also sell a range of partnering Linn tonearms and Linn cartridges to partner with this LP12 model. Please contact us to discuss your options (we can also fit tonearm and cartridge for you).

The Sondek LP12 is available in a choice of high-quality real wood veneer finishes. Linn's standard finishes are Black Ash, American Cherry, Maple, Rosenut or Walnut and Linn also offer a custom service for those who want a truly bespoke finish.

PLEASE NOTE: No baseboard, sub-chassis, arm board or power supply are supplied with this product, this is a starting point for discussing a customised full build with us. If you prefer to buy a complete package, we also sell the Linn Majik LP12 package.
