Linn's Karousel bearing for LP12....

Recommended Posts

Looks like the Cirkus bearing upgrade kit all over again.

I have to admit that when the Cirkus came out I was somewhat skeptical, but hey, happy to admit that I was wrong, big, big time. I still kick myself for ignoring it for the time I did. However, in these days of a three tiered Linn hierarchy, where and when do you draw the line?

Some time ago I chose the Kore over the Keel, simply on a cost basis. Do I now have to change to the Keel to get the most from the Karousel?

Ivor might not be at the helm any more but his spirit lives on.

I might have to keep my eye out for a cirkus bearing for my old deck when someone else upgrades!

Wonder if the bearing only works with the latest inner platter as Karousel is not sold as an independent item.....

 

Tase.

 

That is a problem for me, Tase - as I ain't giving up my Edmund Chan composite inner platter!  :)

I considered it.... but then I lost hours at work so have to cut a lot of my spending. Plus, I'd probably go for the Lingo 4 kit before upgrading the bearing.

All decks sold now feature the Karousel so no........I'd say you need a Karousel to get the best out of a Keel.....

When i spoke to Harry at Audio Genesis He said stocks should arrive around mid April....covid pending...

Spoke to Harry at Audio Genesis today.......not due till mid May.....:unsure:

Linn are running a promo...if you purchase certain Klimax LP12 products...eg an Ekos SE tonearm you'll get the Karuosel at no charge.....

My LP12 is a Cirkus/Lingo 1 as well, I'm very keen to hear your thoughts once they're installed.

Yes , I'd be interested to know how your comparison goes as well. 

At the moment , I've got LP12 / ARO / Armageddon / Arkiv / Cirkus

That is a Tasebass special.  (He is a master craftsman.  :thumb: )
