For a variety of reasons I'd go for the table with the Lingo. I was skeptical of the Lingo myself until I upgraded from the Valhalla. The LV III is also supposed to be a better arm than the LV II, essentially the eqivalent of an Ekos I. I have never owned an LV III, but I can assure you that an Ekos is a better arm than the LV II. Even though you may like the maple plinth on the newer table, the Ittok on it would have to be at least a six or seven years old, and I don't think that Linn has made the Valhalla power supply for two to three years. Either table will have to be disassembled to be properly and safely shipped to you, so it is irrelevant who has set it up in the past. Finally, a new Lingo would set you back $1500, so the older table would seem to be a much greater value IMHO.
