Linn Kroak9
« on: February 02, 2017, 11:09:11 PM »
Just a bit of fun with a scrapper K9 cartridge.  K9 is an AT95 derivative. 
It sounded better.  Largely due to metal mounting plate and harder plastic on the stylus carrier. 

The 95 stylus fits but it looks a bit dumb as it leaves a gap in the front of the cartridge.

If you didn't put the Linn moulding back you could of called the cartridge a Linn Virtuoso

That's where the idea did come from.

Next up in to a CA body probably will be an AT95ex.
