Single Piece Upgrades & Linn Upgrade Pathways
The first upgrade is often the Cirkus Bearing Kit:
The Cirkus upgrade to the LP12 focuses on bearing performance and the connection of the bearing housing to the sub-chassis. The improved bearing and stronger sub-chassis arrangement provides the turntable with greater stability and ensures the bearing sits perfectly true to the chassis of the turntable. This, in turn, minimizes the risk of turntable platter movement with respect to the sub-chassis and arm. Even the slightest movement will introduce audible degradation to the reproduced signal.

Once we have carried out a full inspection of your deck, you will be provided with the potential upgrade options that would suit you and more importantly your individual LP12. These may include the Cirkus Bearing Kit (depending on age), Keel Sub Chasis, tonearms etc. 
We have listed the products in the performance pathway on our site, we can in some cases fit the potential upgrade to your deck so you can listen first hand to the improvement, or you can experience different upgrades in our demonstration room.
For more information, details, price lists of upgrades please email or call 01603 627010
