Linn Introduces new Urika II and Lingo for the Sondek LP12

  • 1 min read

Linn is celebrating the 45th anniversary of the LP12 turntable with two massive upgrades, a new flagship Urika II phono stage and a new Lingo power supply.

The LP12 is the world's most upgradable and flexible turntable. Any LP12 can be upgraded to full Klimax specification and the extensive assortment of performance options ensure a perfect configuration for any enthusiast.

The new Urika II is a breakthrough in phono stage design. Linn has added their cutting-edge digital signal processing technology to implement the RIAA curve in the digital domain in a way that’s uniquely improved. It means lower distortion. Lower noise. And, most importantly, more music. Transported via Exakt Link, the musical information that Urika II delivers is perfectly preserved until the moment it reaches your ears, delivering a musical experience like never before.

The Lingo power supply has had a major upgrade too, using technology developed for Linn's extraordinary Radikal power supply. New Lingo has a motor speed management system on-board and uses digital processing technology to make the platter spin more accurately and more consistently. That’s crucial for music, of course: even the slightest speed variation affects the pitch, and a turntable that isn’t accurate is like a musical instrument that hasn’t been tuned properly. 

Finally, Linn is bringing back the classic fluted LP12 plinth in addition to the standard finish options!

In celebration of the new products and the LP12 45th's anniversary, Linn is offering a limited time upgrade special for customers who purchase the Urika II or New Lingo, contact Pearl Audio Video for details.
