The third evolution of Linn’s ground-breaking single-point bearing design raises the bar for vinyl reproduction yet again and is an essential upgrade for every Sondek LP12 turntable ever made

Karousel, Linn’s new precision-engineered single-point bearing, offers smoother rotation and greater stability for even better sound from your Sondek LP12.

This innovative new take on their original bearing design has been made possible by technological developments in material science, machining capabilities and mechanical engineering expertise gained from almost half a century of designing and manufacturing one of the world’s best turntables. That vital union between the platter, spindle, bearing and sub-chassis is now the strongest ever achieved on the LP12.

A new diamond-like carbon coating inside the bearing reduces friction between the tip of the spindle and the base of the bearing itself. This reduces the ‘noise floor’ of the turntable, so improves musical reproduction.

The substantial lock-nut fastening on the stainless steel housing increases rigidity at the critical point where bearing and sub-chassis come together. Enhancements to the base of the bearing include a stronger housing for the thrust pad, combined with a smaller, stiffer coated form, to improve the critical area that supports the platter rotation and mass, meaning your vinyl reproduction is more accurate and detailed than ever before.

With Karousel the reduction in friction means that not only will this critical component have a greater lifespan, but your LP12 will continue to give you incredibly accurate listening pleasure for longer than ever before.

Retro-fittable to any LP12

The Karousel Bearing is supplied with a new inner platter and components to refesh the suspension to ensure the new bearing performs to its best on every LP12 independent of the decks age.

Fitting this new bearing requires a stripdown of the turntable and then re-build so contact our Linn stockists to arrange integrating this stunning upgrade into your deck today.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
