Thoughts on the Linn LP12 turntable
Mijostyn himself highlights that history is littered with turntables of no significance. That is true. Many models have emerged, had a moment in the sun and faded away. This has been ongoing for decades. And yet the LP12 endures. For fifty years! ...

There is endless chatter on forums about the Rega philosophy and mass, etc. But Rega is a successful company, started in the 70s with lots of dealership support. If you stay with Rega cartridges then there really is very little fiddling needed. R...

Thoughts on the Linn LP12 turntable
If you want to see LP12 samples in the wild then this thread on the Naim forum is worth a look. There is a long established friendly (mostly) rivalry between Linn and Naim fans, especially in the UK. But this shows the level of support this table ...

Feickert Blackbird vs Clearaudio Ovation vs Origin Live Sovreign
Have you heard the Feickert? Generally speaking how much more money does one need to spend to fully realize a real improvement over a P8 w/ decent cartridge?  
Feickert Blackbird vs Clearaudio Ovation vs Origin Live Sovreign
Nice kit! I have a P6 w/ Ania and looking to upgrade as well. I have two phono stages: Rega Aria and the Parasound JC3+ I hope your thread gets solid traction here. I am interested in the Feickert and Gold Note options…  
Feickert Blackbird vs Clearaudio Ovation vs Origin Live Sovreign
Tell us about your P8: what are you using as a cartridge, phono stage and the rest of your system.    I am not sure your listed “upgrades” will be that much higher than where you are at currently?
