From what Stu says, hopefully I might receive a call from Wayne seeking a deposit for a Keel soon!
You will have to ring Wayne,He's really shy. 8)
Well for someone you think is shy - He's on the phone an awful lot :mrg:

Happy Christmas,

Peter, what's your experienced opinion on the difference between the Kore vs Keel?

Seasonal Greetings to you, hope you're having a well earned rest and happy holiday :g-yep:

Thanks Debbie, It's nice to take a break... But not for too long as I get bored!

I have otherwise identical Keel and Kore LP12s here on demo. The difference is clear and very easy to discern. The musicality of the Keel is streets ahead and the demo is one of the easiest ones for me to do, but likewise the Kore is way ahead of a standard sub-chassis. The Kore is a great product and gets you maybe 60-65% of a Keel for 30% of the price. Excellent VFM.

The Kore price with new bearing etc is fantastic when you compare it to price of standard sub chasis.

Its top notch from the standard bearing and chassis i had. I did read and please correct me, the majik chassis is basically the same as the kore with out the bonded armboard ? This was not stated on LINN site or By peter, but someone selling a Majik chassis.

It depends on where you are reading Ray I guess, but I have said before and here again... The new (as changed from late 2013) Majik sub-chassis is the sub-chassis that is the under pinning of the Kore which has the machined from solid arm-board bonded to it as the addition over the Majik. The Kore is a great upgrade for anyone with the standard or Majik sub-chassis.
