Just like legendary "Little Deuce Coupe" the Beach Boys sang about with a souped-up motor concealed under its hood, you can do the same with your LP12 turntable ! 

 

Up for grab is new (in a box) Mober DC motor upgrade kit for Linn LP12. Background story to this , It was a toss-up between Lingo 4 and Mober DC. I decided to go with the Mober DC as i am not ready to spend on Lingo 4 to upgrade my old Linn LP12 which was built in the 70s. So I bought a few of these kits from H.K to try out.  After upgrading with Mober DC I was gobsmacked by the improvement it made to overall performance of my Linn LP12. Music flows effortless, fluid and the DC motor was dead quite (when no music is playing, placing my ear almost touching the plinth). Bass is tighter and more importantly now speed is stable and accurate 33rpm/45rpm. Previously, on Valhalla PSU and original AC motor i can hear tempo of the music is inconsistent (fluctuates). You can check speed using mobile app or handheld tachometer, or old school light strobe. 

 

Here is one of many independent reviews on Mober DC kit you can find on google https://www.hifiaf.com/installing-mober-dc-motor-kit/

 

What's included in the Mober DC kit :

  • 1 x Installation and user manual.
  • 1 x Mober DC Speed Control Unit (Black ) 

  • 1 x Mober DC Motor with mounting screws.
  • 1 x Tachometer with mounting bracket and screw.
  • 1 x Cable management.
  • 1 x Mober Badge
  • 1 x Sticker 16 Point Marker Ring
  • 1 x Communication cable between DC motor/Tachometer and Mober Control Unit.

 

Excluded : IEC Power cable. You can use standard 3 pin kettle cord or upgrade to Isotek IEC cables.

Note : Mober DC Speed Control kit installation takes about 2-3 Hours to complete. Well, you cant go anywhere during stage 4 lock down anyway ! 

My recommendation is to use a LP12 turntable jig or any DIY jig to complete the installation. If you don't have a jig, please contact me i might be able to help. I have completed quite a few Linn LP12 upgrade /modification if you need any help, please contact me I am happy to assist via zoom or Watsapp.

Easy to fit and quite a few members here have them now if any potential buyer needs both help and advice I'm sure it'll be offered just ask.

 

*I took the seat off a kitchen chair and sat the chair on the kitchen table to put my Mober in and 2 or so hours is about right. Vast improvement and the ability to adjust the rpm is fantastic.

 

GLWTS.

      Item Condition: As new Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: ORMEAU HILLS State: Queensland Payment Method: Cash, PayID, Paypal Reason for selling: No longer required  
      Dimensions 106W x 59W x 45D (Weight ~32kg)
      This means it can fit 2 sets of audio equipment side by side on each level.
      The stand is in perfect condition.

      Precsion laser-cut tubular steel construction (will last a lifetime)
      Rigid welded frame
      All 3 glass shelves sit on polymer sound isolation bushes

      The item was bought from Len Wallis in Sydney, and is purpose built to hold audio gear. It is all open, so heat disipaints easily, and easy to access all your components when connecting all the cabling.

      The same stand has an approximate RRP of $650 AUD in the UK:
      https://www.hifix.co.uk/alphason-soundstyle-st310-3-shelf-av-stand
      http://www.soundandvision.co.uk/furniture/plasma-and-lcd-tv-stands/soundstyle-ss-st-310-silv-plat

      It is designed to hold a LOT of weight.
      Each shelf is thick toughened glass
      Each glass shelf has a silver coating underneath, so not see through.

      As shown in the photo below, it was used in a HT room, with a very large Centre Channel sitting on the top, with heavy audio gear on the 2nd and 3rd shelves. One can also use it as a general purpose stand, with a TV on top, although I would suggest there are cheaper alternatives.

      My pricing is fair and offers excellent value for the person who wants to protect the lengevity of the Audio gear (i.e no overheating issues). You won't find this sort of stand in your Harvey Norman or furniture stores. They only offer items designed by people who don't understand the needs of a correct audio setup. Try finding one where it caters for a modest centre channel? LOL
