The tonal balance was pretty good, with a pleasant midrange rendition of vocals, while the stereo image was fairly well developed. The bass, though slightly softened, was more than satisfactory in terms of both definition and extension - £45 (including Basik cartridge) HFN 1983

In a word, uninspiring. Hard to recommend when the LVX and LVX+ are so much better.

Others marked this down, but in the Linn range, it is the one for folks who change carts according to the type of record, the sme fit removable shell makes life easier (you can accumulate a few headshells and load them). Decent upgrade with the right vintage look in a Lenco 75, 78 or thorens 160 etc over the stock fitting. Antiskate usefully adjustable whilst record is playing.
