As it commemorates its fiftieth anniversary, Linn proudly presents the Sondek LP12-50, a limited edition turntable that embodies a harmonious collaboration between Linn and the creative collective LoveFrom. Merging cutting-edge design by Sir Jony Ive and his team with Linn’s relentless pursuit of audio perfection, the Sondek LP12-50 stands as a pinnacle of vinyl playback performance.
Unparalleled Sonic Performance
The Sondek LP12-50 sets new benchmarks for vinyl playback with the inclusion of Linn’s revolutionary Bedrok™ plinth technology. This innovative design employs orthogonal layers of beech, meticulously compressed to form a solid and exceptionally dense material. The resulting plinth possesses remarkable resonance-dampening properties, providing an ideal housing for the turntable’s delicate mechanisms. With this enhancement, Linn has achieved an unprecedented level of sonic purity, delivering an immersive and captivating listening experience.
Exquisite Design Aesthetics
LoveFrom’s design expertise shines through in the Sondek LP12-50, elevating its visual and tactile appeal to new heights. The power/speed control button and hinges, expertly machined with precision, offer a delightful and refined interaction with the turntable. While paying homage to the classic Sondek LP12 form, LoveFrom has added aesthetic refinements, ensuring the product’s integrity and timeless elegance remain intact.
Exclusivity and Craftsmanship
Limited to a mere 250 units, the Sondek LP12-50 is a true collector’s item. Each turntable bears an embossed aluminium plaque, celebrating the historic collaboration and showcasing its individual numbering. Handmade with meticulous care and pride at the Linn factory near Glasgow, every Sondek LP12-50 carries the name of the skilled builder responsible for its assembly, testing, and packaging. While this artisanal process necessitates a lead time, it ensures the utmost attention to detail and craftsmanship.
