Is there a great LP12 set-up person in SoCal?


I live in Arizona and I can't seem to find a good LP12 guy in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Does anyone know of anyone in the LA/San Diego area?

Thanks

The guy in Fort Collins Colo. does a great setup on LP12's and does ship them all over the US. You might conact him at sales@audioalternative.com. If you don;t have a box he can ship you a new LP12 box as he keeps them in stock. He has done mine and does a great job with a number of little minute details one wouldn't think of.
No set up device can replace a skilled practitioner of the art of turntable/cartridge alignment. Randy at Ultimate enchantment in Santa Monica, on the west side of Los Angeles, is your man.

You really can't find better in Southern Cal. And his shop is a great place to hang out at.
Thank you.
Brooks is great with turntables and has always supported vinyl, but he has never been a Linn dealer - he was an Oracle dealer when the Delphi and the LP 12 were going head-to-head (shows you how long I've been around). Randy has been an on-again, off-again turntable guy and has also never been a Linn dealer.

I would probably go with Gene Rubin in Ventura. He hasn't been a Linn dealer for some time now, but he was for about 15 years and has set up hundreds, if not thousands of LP 12s.

Although, that might be a long haul for someone looking for a setup guy from LA South to San Diego. (I'm assuming that Stratguy is somewhere close to the midpoint of the LA & SD like Orange County)

Hell, I'm in LA and Ventura is a haul...A nice one, though.
Call Stan Zeiden at Shelly's Audio in Woodland Hills (a Linn dealer). He's the best Linn guy I know of in the Western U.S. Don't know if he would make a house call to AZ, though.

Thanks everyone. Gglinn, I'll definitelty give Kurt a call. If I can get it set-up locally, that would be preferable.

Thanks again.
