I don't have an LP12, but if I did, it would be all third party stuffed.
seven (or more) carts, five (or six) Lenco's, four (whatever happened to 5?) VSSA amplifiers, three (well four then) Epos M5's (ah, that's what happened to 5) two Usher floorstanders and about 2000 records (vinyl and shellac).

Any chance of you posting some pictures of your many Lenco decks and carts in system pics ?

Only 3 so far:

Naim Audio - Aro
Tangerine Audio - Karmen (top plate)
Chord Company - Super Sarum Aray RCA-DIN

[ Maybe more on the way: Tranquility., a new beautifully hand-crafted plinth., Sarum T - so many wonderful options! ]

Upgrading an LP12 with 3rd party parts can bring huge sonic improvements and increased musical enjoyment.
But please remember to re-cycle your old obsolete LP12 parts thoughtfully! :g-sigh:

Does a Tiger Paw sKale on a Naim Aro count as a separate third party improvement as the Aro is already performing that function?
Currently Cymbiosis LP12 Woodsong Wenge, Klimax Radikal/Chord Sarum T, Keel/A, Khan, Tranquility, Urika/Chord SSA, Aro, sKale, Lyra Kleos SL - Sondek owner since 1982 - the rest is Naim, Chord and Kudos 8)

Most of mine is through recommendations from here.

khan was going cheap via cymbiosis
sKale a lot better than the original weight supplied
naim prefix needed a phono stage after rebuild
nima arm absolutely bloody superb.

next saturday radikal and tranquillity
