Cp, I can tell you that the cable routing of the tonearm cable through the P-Clip in the base of the TT is paramount to the proper operation of the suspension of the Linn TT. The correct amount of slack under the tonearm, and tight clamping in the P-Clip is required. If these requirements are not met, the TT will sound like poo-poo. The stock Linn cable is not the greatest cable on Earth, but it will at least let the TT be set up like it is supposed to be. A pair of huge cables draping out of a hole cut in the bottom of the plinth is not an acceptable solution. That kind of arrangement will wreck more than it solves. If you must do this, then see the website of Extremephono.com, and look at his Linn tonearm cable substitutes. I don't know how they sound, but he is a Linn tweaker, and they can be routed correctly through the P-Clip. Personally, I would leave it alone. If there is a problem with the sound of your TT, I would suspect set-up problems, or need for adjustment. Your audio dealer obviously knows nothing about a Linn, and you would be well advised to steer well clear of him on these matters. This is a job for someone that knows what he is doing.
