    Exactly - the question every man and his dog will ask........ along with when will it be available?

    Says it will fit any LP12, which is great news if the price is sensible.

    My guess is around £995

    Does it come with a new inner platter?

    I wonder why they bothered, the lp12 bearing is already one of the quietest around at -78db A weighted. Float it magnetically and it goes to -81db

    So, it could be worth looking in to, because presumably they have improved it.

    I got to tell you, I’m fairly excited to see what its capable of, if Linn is right and all…We’re not supposed to talk about this, but if it is…Damn, it’s a very exciting time

    Just curious why you're not supposed to talk about it? Do you know a secret?? Are Huawei listening in or something??

    It might have been rumoured for quite a while that a new upgrade was imminent.

    I dont think it was common knowledge and it is 27 years since the last bearing upgrade.

    Not really, you can maglev it for less than 100 quid. Which eliminates the point contact.

    I’ve just been told ... £750. Bearing, sub platter, springs ... essentially a Cirkus for 2020.
