Karousel, Linn's new precision-engineered single-point bearing, offers longer lasting, smoother rotation and greater stability for even better sound from a Sondek LP12 turntable.
This innovative new take on our original bearing design has been made possible by technological developments in material science, machining capabilities and mechanical engineering expertise gained from almost half a century of designing and manufacturing the world's best turntable. That vital union between the platter, spindle, bearing and sub-chassis is now the strongest we've ever achieved.
- Substantial lock-nut fastening on the stainless steel housing to increase rigidity at the critical point where bearing and sub-chassis come together.
- Stronger base for the thrust pad, combined with a smaller, stiffer coated form, to improve the critical area that supports the platter rotation and mass.
- Quicker and easier removal / replacement without affecting setup. Removable 'thrust pad cap' allows draining, cleaning and close inspection of the critical pad surface of the bearing for wear without removing bearing from turntable.
