From what I recall of that day one of the tracks really didn’t demonstrate the superiority of the Tranquility - but also the ChordMusic really didn’t show the Sarum T in a good light 8)
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)

So you can only play certain tracks to get the best out of the tranquillity.. how very strange :roll: :smt005

Hi, the modern thinking as regards the Linn is all about the solid connection of the various parts.
I would certainly prefer the spindle to be pushing down on the bearing with the minimum amount of lubrication in between to avoid drag/wear.

I would not be happy If the effect of the tranquility lifts the spindle no matter how slightly. Loss of information.

My efforts to make a rigid connection between arm and bearing has reaped benefits.
Fluted LP12 no base fitted. Majik subchassis, Cirkus bearing,Valhalla, Rega rb330, Goldring 2100. Elliot Sounds Phono pre. Marantz cd6006. Moth passive preamp. Three LK100s. Active Kabers (Scanspeak 2008 tweeters)

Thank you...dumb luck and lack of talent occasionally give rise to something positive. :smt037
