The Linn Sondek LP12 is still considered by many to be the reference point for turntables. With an unparralled ability to deliver the best from your vinyl collection, it is no wonder that since it's introduction in 1972 it has shaped the entire industry with many chasing to replicate it's quality. Sold simply as a basic platter, all other components are added to make the record deck that you desire.

The Sondek LP12 comes with no tone arm, cartridge, power supply, motor, base board or even lid - all these need to be added to create your ideal deck. Please see the "Building Your Deck" tab for help in adding the required components to complete your LP12 turntable.

At the heart of the Sondek LP12 is Linn’s patented, low-noise, single-point bearing. This advanced yet simple bearing design ensures the smooth motion of the turntable and eliminates noise to ensure that all you hear is the music.

The high mass, perfectly balanced, belt-driven platter maintains speed stability, while the solid wood plinth, suspended sub-chassis and stable arm platform combine to provide freedom from vibration and acoustic feedback.

The combination of these precision-engineered components creates a turntable with an unequalled ability to provide pitch accurate, faithful reproduction of your cherished vinyl collection.

The Sondek LP12 is available in a choice of high-quality real wood finishes. The standard finishes are Black Ash, American Cherry, Maple, Rosenut or Walnut and there is also custom service for those who want a truly bespoke finish.

Contact our Linn dealers for more information on this classic record deck.


The Sondek LP12 comes with no tone arm, cartridge, power supply, base board or even lid - all these need to be added to create your ideal deck.

If you would prefer a ready made record deck, then Linn offer you the Majik LP12 - a Linn Sondek LP12 deck with their recommended configuration to get you started.

However, if you would like to create the deck of your dreams, you  can choose from a variety of Linn products - or indeed from other manufacturers.

Below is a list of items you will need - and what you might like to try!

Power Supply - choose from the Linn Lingo, Radikal or the LP12 Majik power supplies

Base board - choose from the Linn Solid base board or the Trampolin base board

Tone arm - choose from Linn's own Akito or Ekos SE tone arms

Cartridge - choose from the Linn Adikt, Klyde or Kandid cartridges, or from our selection from other manufacturers

Phono Stage - choose an internal stage like Urika or any external stage

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.
