Technics Upgrade Path

Why Upgrade or Modify?

1210 230x100

Technics 1200 series turntables were originally designed for hi-fi use, are abundant, ultra-reliable and low maintenance turntables with a fantastic motor unit.

I manufacture no compromise, high precision bearings, platters & armboards to bring the absolute best out of your Technics.

Your Starting Point

Startingpoint 230x100

Your upgrade path completely depends on what you have to start with. Do you have a great tonearm sitting on the shelf, or have you just bought a beaten up ex-DJ turntable that needs lots of TLC?

I want to sell you the right product at the right time. Contact me to discuss your requirements.

The Linn LP12 Path

Linn 230x100

It's an old adage that you should upgrade in this order: Turntable » Tonearm » Cartridge. Whilst you can get improvements going a different route, this offers the best value for money at every stage.

It's hard to find an LP12 that doesn't have a Cirkus bearing, or sub-chassis upgrade these days.

Our Approach

Thinkdifferent 230x100

I believe the Linn LP12 upgrade path exists for a very good reason, and it applies to Technics 1200 series turntables too.

The speed to market of upgrade options has been based on ease of manufacture, and now our upgrades are available, you can choose a better path.
