review this tonearm (5 reviews)

Linn Basik LVV


The LVV was Linn's entry level tonearm and comes fitted with a detachable pressed alloy headshell and features overhang, lateral angle and height adjustment.


Effective mass: 13.5g

Effective length: 229mm

Overhang: 18mm

Cartridge offset angle: 24 degrees

Mounting distance: 211mm


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
