This is an all-Linn package, everything from the baseboard to the cartridge. The deck is outfitted in the gorgeous Linn Limited Edition Fluted Plinth in black. The images don't do it justice, you have to see it to appreciate its beauty. All components with the exception of the tonearm, the power supply, the bearing, and the platter are brand new. The deck was meticulously brought to the Linn factory standards by Jim Fuller at Goodwin's High End in Waltham, MA.
The components are:
- Linn Ekos 2 tonearm;
- Linn Krystal cartridge with 30 hours of playback (very accurate estimate);
- Linn Lingo 2;
- Linn Kore;
- Linn Trampolin 2;
- Linn Cirkus;
- Linn 1.7m XLR T-Kable (Mogami).
The motor, belt, and the felt mat are new as well. The Linn dust cover and the top metal plate are also new. If you don't have a balanced system, no worries. I will include a 1.2m Linn RCA tonearm cable as well. The only cosmetic imperfection on this deck is a couple of nicks on the outer platter -- the middle screws on the baseboard were accidentally forgotten to be removed prior to shipping, which caused them. The nicks can't be seen under the felt mat.
But all those details aside, and most importantly -- THIS DECK CAN SING!
I have a Linn shipping box for the deck. The Ekos 2 tonearm has its own black wooden storage case, which is included. I have the original box for the Lingo 2, but unfortunately it is not very sturdy for ground shipping, so I'll ship it in a thick box from an Ayre component instead. I'll ship via FedEx Ground. The shipping charge will be significant -- it's a two-box shipment, and both boxes are quite large and heavy. To make your buying experience more pleasant, I will cap the shipping at $65 and I will take care of the difference. If you live in the Philadelphia area, I'll gladly arrange the local pickup.
