Linn goes Akito; Meridian expands its 200 Series
The Linn Majik LP12 turntable (pictured) has proven very popular, particularly in recent years with the resurgence of vinyl. At $5,695, this has been an economical way for many to start their Linn Sondek journey.
One of the great aspects of the Linn Sondek turntable is that it is upgradable, allowing you to improve the suspension, power supply, arm, cartridge etc. The only complaint levelled at the Majik LP12 has been that the arm could be improved on, so Linn have now released the Linn Akito. This is the same as the Majik LP12 other than replacing the Pro-Ject 9cc tonearm with their Akito arm. It still comes complete with their Adikt moving magnet cartridge, and sells for $8,695.
