Linn LP 12 - Hmmmm?

Recommended Posts

There's no doubting there's that much coin invested in it - but as a resale prospect, I'd have to agree that it's a tough call. Perhaps the person just about to buy this identical set-up new would benefit the most.

 

It seems very sad (to me, at least) that after upgrading this t/t to such a high standard that they're letting it go.

Hmmm, that's a lot of kit!

 

Only thing missing is... an Ekos.

 

Ittok armlift is missing...odd...a sonic upgrade perhaps ;)

I agree that the price is overly optimistic.

I note at 9 k it still has not reached reserve.I have no doubt that the seller paid a large amount for initial purchases but whether this transforms to this amount in the used market remains to be seen.

Thanks, any thoughts on the pricing? Didn't know where to start with this one -

Obviously didn't do any market research then???....... almost dime a dozen:D

 

but somebody has taken the bait... if it is a genuine bid :rolleyes:... but safe in knowing that reserve hasn't been met.

 

 

(I'd rather spend half that coin on an RPM-10)

Aye, you could be right ;).... but, each to their own ....not that I would buy an RPM-10 if I had that level of coin to spend., as much as I like it as a TT.. more fun to be had getting my 301's fettled and plinthed :D

Yes fettling and plinthing is very important :D

 

Back on topic, well sort of anyway. There is a seller on trademe who has been trying for pretty much the entire year to sell a naim Hi-Line for $1,200. The Hi-Line is a fragile cable and I certainly woudn't buy one other than from a dealer (with a warranty) which would cost me $1,375 even before asking for a discount. I see someone questioned his price recently and he said it was fair and would eventually sell :eek:

 

Same seller also has a Naim CDS1, naim speaker plugs and NACA5 for sale on trademe. Needless to say they haven't sold either....

 

SORRY : Should clarify that it isn't the same seller as the abovementioned Linn. Was just commenting on another seller who appears very optimistic with is pricing...

I would estimate that a new Linn Keel would be over $6k in NZ if you could find one. Cheap they ain't...

 

Far out batman... I hope a linn keel gives backrubs, enjoys long walks on the beach, and is not adverse to sounding bloody good....

I looked up an old review which quoted a keel as being $ 3250 US DOLLARS
