Specialist seller of pre-owned Linn LP12 parts.
Superb example of an Ekos Mark 2.
Originally a Mark 1 this arm was upgraded to a mark 2 at the Linn factory in 2006 at a cost of £450.
Cosmetically in excellent condition.
Both dials move freely and both vertical and horizontal bearings are very smooth.
Arm sweeps smoothly across the horizontal plane, when a small anti skate force is applied.
Very slight mark a couple of mm long on counterweight but couldn't pick it up on photos.
Cable not included
Will be shipped in Ekos SE packaging.
