Linn Ekos Mark 1 (Preowned, Ref 001427)

Regular price £995.00 Sale

Lovely clean example of an Ekos mark 1 that was manufactured in 1990.

 

It has since then had the wiring upgraded (33ga ofc internal wire) by renowned Tonearm Specialist AudioOrigami.

Both dials move freely and both vertical and horizontal bearings are smooth.

Arm sweeps smoothly across the horizontal plane, when a small anti skate force is applied.

Cable not included

Will be shipped in Ekos SE  packaging.
