Default Linn LP12 Files Archives

Hi. Since I just bought a new toy, a rather nice Linn Soundek LP12, I did a lot of search on the subject and compiled my findings.

In particular I was searching for the dealer Setup and Tuning Manual. It is here. It even includes the Vahalla schematic that I search for some time. The final touch, I did a cover sheet and an index table in Word if you want to assemble a nice book of all these subject. These info are all available for free on the net and I should be public domain. It produces a book of about 1 inch, printed double sides.

It includes the following:
1. LP12 Brochure, Ittok Brochure
2. The Vinyle Engine Presentation, Update History, Tonearm
3. The Vinyle Engine LP12 FAQ
4. Replacement of a Linn MC Cartridge Procedure
5. Ittok Tonearm, Set-Up Manual, Template & Tonearms Database
6. LP12 User Manual
7. Linn Soundek LP12 Setting Up & Tuning Instructions
8. LP12 Instruction & Installation Manual (Original 1973)
9. LP12 Set Up Manual (20 pages)
10. Schematics : Vahalla PS & LP12
11. Reviews
12. Vanden Hul D-502-Hybrid Tonearm cable
13. Denon AU-320 MC Step-Up Transformer
14. LP12 Recommended Components Discussion
15. TurnTable Adjustment & Catridge Alignment

You can get it from here:
Linn_lp12.Zip by Bigupload.Com

It may be usefull to other diy guys

Have fun

Glad it was helpfull. The net is so vast that it seems we can always find something new, deed in the digital noise

By the way, I would like good pictures of the original LP12 packaging. I got the original box, but some of the inner foam layers are missing. I would like to make some.

Bye...

SB

Curious if you find a way to mod the Valhalla to play 45 ?

Thanks for the link Algar - I too thought I had all info, but was wrong

You can upgrade the Valhalla to 45 rpm by getting a Hercules...

Zombie, I saw them on ebay but have not been able to find any reviews on them. Do you have one and if so does it a) sound better than Valhalla as marketed and b) plays 45 without issues in speed ?

Thx

a) I have only compared (that is, replaced) my old Valhalla and it seems the new Hercules is better, gives a steadier sound
b) dunno what the issues would be, but it plays 45 rpm fine, some think the blue LED is annoying, my turntable is wall-mounted and high, so it doesn't bother me
For the money it is worth a try - it surely can't be worse than a Valhalla
Do a search on the forum at www.pinkfishmedia.net, Hercules has been discussed there, too.
Happy New Year to you all!
