The Kore sub-chassis and armboard is designed for extra rigidity and removal of unwanted damping. Using design philosophies of the Keel, our designers have found innovative ways to strengthen this fundamental part which sits at the heart of the turntable, at Akurate level.
The sub-chassis is strengthened by a multilayer, box construction, using 1.5mm thick aluminium. Three parts are bonded together using a special Linn-specified adhesive together to form an incredibly stiff structure, whilst keeping the weight low.
The armboard is now machined from solid using a similar process to Keel, with strengthening ribs on the underside, providing the ultimate in stiffness and rigidity. This is then bonded to a the sub-chassis so that the assembly now exhibits the properties of a single piece. The arm now has a direct connection to the bearing, as the arm collar is bolted directly to the sub-chassis.
Compatible with Linn, Rega, SME & Naim Aro tonearms.
