Linn’s new Limited Edition Sondek LP12 turntable, £25,000 for its 40th anniversary

Established in 1973, Linn systems are manufactured completely in-house and are sold worldwide. Linn is celebrating its 40th anniversary by joining forces with Highland Park to release a special Limited Edition Sondek LP12 turntable – the product which launched the company four decades ago. Just 40 of the turntables will be made available worldwide, priced at an eye-watering £25,000, each accompanied by a bottle of Highland Park 40-year-old malt whisky. The high-performance turntables – originally designed by Linn founder Ivor Tiefenbrun – have been manufactured at the company’s factory just outside Glasgow. Each Limited Edition Sondek comprises a Kandid moving coil cartridge, Ekos SE tonearm, Keel sub-chassis and armboard, Radikal DC motor and power supply, Urika phono stage and LP12, and is encased in a wood plinth, made from the solid oak casks used to mature Highland Park’s whisky. It’s just 40 of the £25,000 turntables have been made available worldwide.
