New Linn Belt

Post by FangfossFlyer » Wed Apr 03, 2019 6:26 pm

Any feedback or experiences of the new Linn belt that has, I believe, been introduced a couple of months ago?

Me neither... :smt102

But since I replaced my belt and oil in Sept of 2018 with parts from Cymbiosis, I will have to wait for five to ten years before another replacement will be due. :oops: :roll:

I do not believe it was ever announched but has been shipped as part of some recent new decks.

Best to check with your Linn dealer in case I am wrong.

Well then a month or so has passed, has there been a belt replacement or not? Anyone done any investigating? I will tomorrow (May 25) and will report back as and when I find anything out.

I haven't heard anything other than this topic on here so I don't suppose there is one.
I'm sure it would be must have headline news if there was.
It would have to be at least double the price. :smt005
