If you haven't had it tuned by a Linn dealer recentley, you might start there. If the suspension isn't adjusted correctly and a reputable Linn dealer hasn't gone through the table you could be missing out on a better sound from your table as it is. Contact Rick at audioalternative.com and inquire with him as to his suggestion. He does a large number of LP12's a year and has people sending their table to him for tuneups and upgrades with wonderful results. Rick lives and breathes LP12's
and from my personal experience and my great sounding LP12, thanks to him, I can attest there is no better LP12 guru in my knowledge. I have seen his name recommended many times here on AudioGon (some by me) and I have never seen a negative response from anyone using his services. As far as shipping, he keeps in stock all orginal packaging and he will send it to you with full instructions on how to pack your table. Also he is honest and if he receives your table and sees that it in deep dis-repair, he will contact you and advise you on which is best. As a further note, I have been there when he is working on LP12's sent to him and each one is treated with respect and a delicate touch. Not to make him sound quirkish, but these LP12 are like a religion, he employs an almost a holistic approach, and he is not happy unless it is right.
