Legend upgraded - Linn Sondek LP12

It's hard to believe but Linn introduced Sondek over 33 years ago. The new LP12 SE series comprises three new upgrades, the EKOS SE tonearm, KEEL one-piece sub-chassis, armboard and collar, and new metal TRAMPOLIN base board. According to the press relase:

• EKOS SE tonearm
Its successful predecessor, EKOS, has been completely re-engineered, taking advantage of the latest manufacturing techniques and advanced materials, resulting in a much more rigid design for an even greater musical performance.

• KEEL sub-chassis & armboard
A combined sub-chassis, armboard & collar machined from one solid piece of aluminium, to provide rigid support to the tonearm & platter, for even more accurate reproduction of your vinyl collection.

• TRAMPOLIN base board
A new base board which uses aluminium in place of melamine (as used in the original TRAMPOLIN) for increased rigidity, to provide even better audio performance.
