Friday was a busy day and my back is only just recovering. My older LP12 now has the Origin Live larger motor and power supply together with a comprehensive resetup.
The newer LP12 is now fully Funk Vectored complete with K Drive.
Both, after setup by my friend, bounce in a much more regular and controlled manner.
The huge difference though is in the music. They just deliver far more music and far less thickness and confusion. Stone Fox Chase the theme to The Old Grey Whistle Test had so much more interest and detail in the rhythm section on the old Linn compared to before the mods.
The Funky LP12 showed signs of the pre run-in forwardness I had expected but even so the control, dynamics and grip were so far of what the TT was delivering before. Playing tracks from the new Thorens triple LP was a revelation. The Staple Singers sounded amazing with fantastic out of blackness projection and Rickie Lee Jones’ nasal twang was as true as it was live at the Palladium.
More after the running in has completed.
