A couple of months ago i was shocked how much better my new Linn mat was compared to my old knackered 5 year old one :shock:

And don't forget Linn actually sell two mat options, one is a bargain 15 quid, but i chose their more expensive option which iirc is about £180 and comes with a very handy free new platter :D
£18 + vat and £200 + vat.
Thanks, Grim

i don't have my invoice to hand - think i put it in the empty Radikal box which is stored up in the loft, ...toxic ichycoo insulation, mice infestations, and baking heat, demons, the harshest environment known to womankind - i'm not going up there if i don't have to! :roll:

Bob,

A new Linn mat costs £13.65 +VAT =£16.38 inc VAT.

Your new platter price is wrong also. :smt018

Debbie I was up there last night digging out stuff for Peter.
Can't wait to go up again because I will be storing my Radikal Urika and Kore boxes up there soon.

Well that's not what I was informed by the Linn dealer off the April 2014 price list but I am no expert. For a bit of felt woth 50p like all products (and that includes the HoL matt) well over priced.
LP12 (now with the special Peter Swain magic touch and a Kore and T-Cable) for analogue, Majik Aktiv System for digital

If anyone wants to know a Linn or a Naim spares price..... No problem, just PM me or post the question here and I'll find out and en devour to get back to you pretty promptly.

This is really important given the silly inflated prices you see on some websites or auction sites (mainly 3rd party traders and not Linn approved Retailers IMHO)

For example the cross member (otherwise known as the wire strap) for the LP12................ A second-hand one sold last year for £60.00....... The price via a Linn retailer for a brand new one is £15.05 + VAT..... So call it £18.00!

If in doubt, please ask.
