Specialist seller of pre-owned Linn LP12 parts.
Superb example of an Ekos Mark 2.
This was originally a mark 1 that was upgraded to mark 2 specification (Bearings) in 2003.
Both dials move freely and both vertical and horizontal bearings are very smooth.
Sweeps across the horizontal plane with only a small anti skate force applied and achieves an impressive 100 on the swing test.
Cable not included
Will be shipped in original wooden box that is in fantastic condition.
