Irresistible Force

Post by LD100 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:57 pm

After lurking as a visitor for about three years, the pretty ticker tape display became a irresistible force, beckoning me to join the HiFi Kabin. I tried to fight it, after all, I had joined Vinylengine in 3/2014 and then Linn Forums in 4/2014, that should be enough for me. But when I saw the moving message inviting me to join the Kabin I yielded to the power of the moving words. :smt058

I am but a humble bon vivant and nefarious man about town...Chicago to be exact...who is here to continue on the path of enlightenment of all things Linn Sondek LP12.

I bought my LP12 new in 1978 and she has been singing to me ever since.
Aside from new springs and grommets, lid, arm board for the Ekos 2, and numerous oil and belt changes over the last not quite 40 years, she is all original. :shock:

Why, for the simple reason that I am a sorrowful child of the great depression, and something has to break or wear out in order for me to replace it. Not to mention I love the sound as is. :D

And the Doctors have taken all my money so I can't afford to buy anything. :smt013

It's a Extremephono non felt mat that is currently discontinued and has been replaced by Extremephono with a carbon fiber version.

After hours of critical listening, hey, somebody's got to do it, I decided the felt mat sounded best. However, the non felt (it's made of some kind of rubbery "stuff", was a mighty close second and it never sticks to the album or attracts the fuzzies like the felt does. So I went went for the convenience and have been using it for about 16 years with no regrets. :smt023

I used the original felt for 23 years...the change probably did me good, don't want anyone saying I'm stuck in a rut! :shock:
Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.
