 Pictured below is the latest development the successful Sole sub-chassis for the LP12. The Sole  version VIII was inspired by the Keel but is no copy:  there are significant and important differences including material choice, interchangeable arm-boards, pocket shape and depths. 

For many audio enthusiasts, few turntables approach the Linn Sondek LP12 for sheer involvement. Indeed, after 40  years in production it is still being updated by the factory.  Whilst not the best TT in the world, Linn's costly modifications have been acclaimed as helping to elevate the Sondek once more near the top of the podium as one of the great turntables.



 However, Analogue innovation is aware that many enthusiasts have arrived at Sondek ownership via a secondhand purchase, because achieving the ultimate LP12 new can be unattainable.  Our aim is to provide alternative high specification, high performance upgrade components for your Sondek enabling you to achieve a very large proportion of improvements realised by Linn upgrades but at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, customers receive a far more personal service where you will conduct discussions with the manufacturer directly.

Official Linn upgrade components are very high cost, so this has created a burgeoning third party marketplace. Linn has responded to the third party market by introducing the Kore as a mid range chassis upgrade. However, we are able to offer our better performing sub-chassis upgrade at a lower cost as we do not maintain a dealer network, have a large workforce or advertise in the hi-fi press..

Some may feel this is a disadvantage because the prospective customer cannot listen to the performance of our upgrades in action prior to purchase. However, it is our belief that listening in a dealers (or indeed our) premises does not adequately demonstrate how the effect of any modification will have on your music in your own listening room, therefore we offer a *no obligation trial* where you may listen to the effect the Sole sub-chassis has on your LP12's transcription at home, in your system and listening room. In our opinion this is a crucial factor in determining if any upgrade is worthy, without sales pitch, dealer time pressures or other constraints. 

Customers of ours say  our Sole chassis is better than both the much vaunted Kore and indeed the Keel and especially so when cost is taken into consideration, in fact one custom has sold his ultimate LP12 and remained with our Sole'd version as his ultimate.

Our guarantee to you for great upgrade at low cost....   

If you do not feel our sub-chassis upgrade is worthy, you may simply return the Sole undamaged after 30 days for a refund. We really cannot be fairer than that.
