Turns out the Aluminum CNCed subchassic/tonearm board that Linn offers for the Lp12 Sondek at 3250.00USD is quite the upgrade. Unfortunately, that kind of cash is not even an option for many of the folks that have owned this landmark table for decades or even the newer owners. As many of you well know, it doesn't cost anywhere near that to cut a piece of billet and anodize it black. I have no issue with people like Linn Products making a few dollars for their R&D and they deserve to eat well, they've done a good job in the past. Now someone after my own heart Green Street Audio has come along and decided to make a cost effective alternative that is also accommodating trusted arms such as Rega and Naim Aro as well as the Linn arms or even custom set-ups. Something Linn had felt not necessary to offer. Wonder why? Check this out, I am certainly considering one for my old table. Curious what others have heard or might think of this product. http://greenstreetaudio.com/pages/subchassis-Linn.html Happy Listening!
