Linn Klimax LP12

New Klimax LP12 produces an even more musical, pitch-perfect performance; and marks the conquest of a new summit of performance at the top of our industry leading Sondek LP12 range.

This is thanks to the hyper-accurate speed management technology, whisper-quiet power supply rails, and cutting-edge motor design, which collectively comprise new Radikal; and also to the level of fidelity achieved following our team’s extensive experiments in material science – culminating in the breakthrough cartridge that is Ekstatik.


This new flagship cartridge sets a new bar for arm/cartridge synergy; its unique construction forges an harmonious synergy with Ekos SE; wicking away more unwanted resonances along the arm, and out through the sub-chassis.

In our search for ever better materials, our experiments led us to the implementation of aluminium-bronze inserts. Now a feature of Ekstatik, these inserts allow us to reap the sonic benefits we found this alloy to possess. A micro-ridge stylus on a sapphire cantilever makes for an extraordinarily responsive cartridge.

The sapphire is far stiffer than boron or aluminium, eliciting less loss between the stylus and the generator. The result is an agile, responsive cartridge, with the added performance yielded from specifying these materials; masterfully matched in unique configurations.

Over 45 years' worth of research and development has gone into this latest evolution of the turntable that turned the hi-fi industry on its head in our quest to make better sound. Each precision-engineered upgrade has uncovered more music from the depths of the record groove, ensuring that this highest performance model remains unsurpassed.

A true classic, the LP12 turntable will never become obsolete because it's modular, you can update it whenever we release a new upgrade.


New Radikal features hyper-accurate speed management technology, which generates sustained, uniform rotation closer to 33⅓rpm than any turntable. It works hard behind the scenes, so that your ears don’t have to. Your discerning customers will experience even more of the music, in perfect pitch, thanks to an FPGAmanaged motor control unit (MCU), and the latest, precision-engineered motor technology – working in unison to produce ultra-smooth rotation, and our lowest drift measurements ever.
