When collecting the speakers the weekend after, he offered me another player he had stored in his basement, it's a old Linn he said.
I did not beleive it to be an actual Linn LP12 but off course i want it.
But as it turned out it is a old LP12 with Grace 707 arm, i mounted my Benz Ruby3 on it and i was totally blown away?
The arm stays for now but are quietly looking for newer versions of Linn arms. But have to say the graze sound wonderful in my system.
Congratulations and welcome to the fold!!
I bought my LP12 in 78/79 ... although there is not much common between the one I bought and what I have now (as it's had a number of upgrades over the years.
If you research this site and the Linn LP12 Forum, you will find a number of things you can do which will improve the sound of the LP12 you have. Upgrading the arm is certainly one thing ... but be aware the Grace 707 is a very good arm (if it's in good working order). But whether it is a good match for your Ruby3, I cannot confirm. Having had a Ruby2 and now a Benz LP, I can
confirm your Ruby3 is a great match for a Graham 2.2 arm, though.
