Cosmetically challenged Akito 2. Looks like Linn had a few teething problems before moving onto the hammerite like finish associated with most 2B Akitos.
Linn have confirmed that post S/N 100 ,000 are either Akito 2 or 3 arms.
The dial moves freely and both vertical and horizontal bearings are smooth.
The arm moves smoothly horizontally when a small bias is applied and achieved an impressive 100+ swings.
Lift mechanism works as it should.
Cable not included
Will be shipped in Akito packaging.
