I am. But mine is a pretty unusual, in that I have an ET-2 Tonearm, and a Sota Reflex clamp mounted on mine.

Aug 4th 1979 LP12 with Akito arm with Grado Sonata cartridge, with fresh oil.

That's a wild version of a LP12 Goldear..

update:

Vahalla Board installed, new motor, Ittok ViI arm and Dorian cartridge. Like having a new turntable.

I wish I knew more about the Cirkus it seems to be a matter of taste of what happens when you install it.

THought you weren't supposed to put a clamp on a Linn. How did it improve the sound doing that?

Well, your not supposed to put an ET-2 on a Linn either. But I'm not always one to listen to the Linn propaganda about these matters. And it turns-out that the ET-2 is a superb sounding match, its just very tricky to setup properly on a Linn.

The Sota clamp just firms-up the sound a bit (tightens the bass a little), and makes the quiet spots a little darker.

I have a very early LP-12 with Ittock LV II Arm, Sumiko Blackbird cartridge, upgraded power supply, and hopefully many happy years of listening ahead...

Also have an Axis, with Basik IV Arm, and an Adikt cartridge. I love it in my "back-up" system...

One of mine has an Ittok LVIII arm and a Grado Reference Sonata cartridge. Also the Hercules II power supply.

The other has a Basik arm, a Grado Prestige Red cartridge and the Valhalla power supply.

Do either of yours do a hum. Mine does an off again on again kind of thing. Really only notice it between tracks.

Thanks

The Sonata hums as it approaches the lead out grooves...clearly picking up something from the motor. I've got some mu-metal on order, and will see if shielding the motor helps at all.

The Red has no such issues.
