LP12 Radikal Problem

I'm guessing the mober does have this issue also..

I do own the mober ..but don't use a base of any kind..but I remember on fitting the motor that I thought " you can see it hanging down quite low"

At the end of the day...it's still a maxon motor in a case so it will be very similar to Linn's version

Silence from Linn on this one is deafening. The Radikal is seriously expensive (as is the LP12). Why not give all Trampolin owners, who also have a Radikal, a re-engineered Trampolin that has correct clearance? Then gather all the old ones, respray them and ship them with the Majik as standard, which would be a seriously appealing upgrade.

Linn need to reclaim their integrity for the LP12 for it to flourish in the future.

My meaning with this thread was to inform everybody here who has an LP12 (and they are alot) about this problem,what you do when you know about the problem is up to you.

But I can see, that the information already has give some members here,who has Radikal/Trampolin better soundquality from their LP12's....THATS GOOD. Many here has also send me a mail and got more information that way.  I take it that way, because my small "Stalker-group",think this very,very IMPORTENT INFORMATION to you,the members who maybe has this problem is annoying,irksome 😉🤮.

◾ This is the biggest SCANDAL in the LP12's history,and has going on in so many years.....the LP12 on Klimax-level, cost in Sweden around € 25 000:-.

Think the car-industri,if they have a problem with some car-model,they take it back and solve the problem....BUT,... this has, to this date NOT happend with this famous expensive turntable. You should be chocked, if I tell you all I know about this LP12-issue, and the response from Linn.

I'm busy now,but later (in a couple of days), I can give a little more information about/around this subject in this thread.....IF,...my "Stalker-group" can stay away from this,my thread.

Thank you.

Richard,.....shit,I thought that only members could see the Wall info. If all is publicly viewable than,....THANK YOU for taking it away.

No not an agenda,I have give the information so all members can check their players. The information I talk about now, that I can write about in a couple of days,is different ways if you for yourself will fix the problem.

As I’ve said before it’s not touching my base. The are times even with dealer fits that a cable if not properly routed around the inside of the plinth can become trapped under the motor and cause issues. As memory serves I think that Peter Swain has some of the botches in his LP12 rogues gallery.

Indeed, I have lots of pictures of lot's and lot's of things......................

However, it's worth pointing out that personally (and to be very clear on this, I am not commenting on behalf of anyone other than myself) I have only come across the issue Peder describes once with a factory plinthed client deck in the past 6-7 years since the launch of the Radikal - It was a late 70s Afro plinth and as you can imagine/realise, I see a lot of LP12s.

Just to add, I have also had one report recently from a client who I know and respect who sets-up his own LP12 these days, reporting the same issue but that's it. At  present I know of no other Trampolin 2 contact situations following the 45 degree rotation of the Trampolin 2 foot fixing some 6 years ago and as Ravenswood points out; care needs to be taken with cable routing for sure, as there is not much space spare but it should be sufficient.

Hope this clarifies the issue and also the magnitude of the issue as reported here.

If any owner is concerned about the possibility of contact between their Trampolin 2 and Radikal motor, I suggest they contact their Linn retailer for a check so as their mind can be put at rest.

 

Regards,

Peter Swain

I’d tend to agree and would encourage the OP, although well intended, not to be so alarmist. Yes there may have been one or two folk with issues but not on the scale supposed. I’ve bought into Linn since the 1980s and feel sure that if there was a generic problem that they would have acted on it by now.

.......also why isn’t this on the Linn forum?
