Linn Majik subchassis
« on: January 03, 2018, 11:00:47 AM »
Does anyone have experience/opinion on the retrofitting of a Majik sub-chassis to an LP12(Cirkus bearing fitted)? Advice please!

I can't answer this (because I don't know) but it sounds interesting.
Why don't you tell us (if you don't mind) what pieces you've got, what you'd like to do, and why?
What do you hope to achieve? And, even better, upload some pictures?
You might then find many people (some more qualified than others :- (me)) offering advice...  :thumbs:

I understand it to be different but not better.

Thank you Aqualung and Hi Phibian for the replies. I have an LP12 with a cirkus bearing and the glued sub-chassis - ITTOK arm with a DV17D3. The new Majik sub-chassis seems to be a more rigid platform for the arm board. Keel and Kore sub-chassis are too expensive! Price of Majik seems "reasonable" - after Hi-Phibian's comment, I am starting to doubt! Why do  I want to do it - to improve my sound? Hence my investigation. The acid test, of course, to listen to a Majik LP12 with the new sub-chassis and to a Majik LP12 with the old sub-chassis. I do not have pictures - hope this will help - https://www.linn.co.uk/hifi-separates/turntables/sub-chassis#majik

I asked a friend in the UK who fettles lots of Linn.  Reckons there is little in it. 

What power supply do you use?

Fit a hercules or even a Mose Hercules.  Despite being similar in design it sounds better and allows 45 rpm without adaptor.

I can send you one to try.
