Linn Sondek LP12

Linn Sondek


Introduced in 1972, the Linn 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 Linn Sondek LP12 Turntables has been the turntable by which all others are judged. Each component has been continuously improved to extract even more information from a vinyl record. At the heart of the Linn 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. The solid wood plinth, suspended sub-chassis and stable arm platform combine to provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback. The combination of these precision-engineered components creates a turntable with an unequalled ability to provide pitch accurate, faithful reproduction of your cherished vinyl collection. A partnering range of Linn tonearms and cartridges are available to ensure you get the maximum performance from your Sondek LP12. The Sondek LP12 is available in a choice of high-quality real wood finishes. Our standard finishes are Black Ash, American Cherry, Maple, Rosenut or Walnut and we also offer a custom service for those who want a truly bespoke finish.
