Stack Audio LP12 Serene Base Board
Upgrade your purchase with these options:
Stack Audio make two base boards for the LP12 – the high performance SERENE and their best performance ULTIMATE. As with their Top Plates, the Base Boards have been designed to offer a high level of rigidity and vibration dissipation. .
The SERENE employs two levels of aluminium bonded with their vibration dissipation compound; the ULTIMATE uses the same ‘Solid Surface’ material used in the Arm Board and Sub-Chassis. Base boards are the simplest components to replace at home on your LP12 and do not require any special tools or dismantling to fit.
Fits all plinths
Compatible with internal and Lingo power supplies and DC motors
Not compatible with Urika phono stages
Fitting the Stack Audio SERENE Baseboard is straight forward as it is a simple replacement for a standard baseboard. Depending on which Linn baseboard you are replacing you should drill pilot holes in the edge of the plinth for the additional fixings. The original fibre LP12 baseboards have 4 fixing holes; metal Linn baseboards have 10 screw fixing holes. The SERENE Baseboard has 12 holes, 3 on each side. Connect the earth cable to the cross-brace mounting point before fixing the board in place and check to make sure you haven’t disturbed the arm cable. It is important that this should not touch the baseboard. Once fixed into the plinth, screw the 3 height adjustable feet into the threaded holes on the underside and level on your equipment rack or playing surface. SAFETY NOTICE It is essential that you unplug your LP12 from the mains before removing the baseboard. Internal power supplies like the Valhalla carry live high voltages; the on/off switch merely disconnects the motor from the power supply which is still live when connected to the mains.
We were introduced to Stack Audio - are a new company that product LINN LP12 turntable parts in 2018. They were keen for us to listen to some aftermarket, replacement components they had designed and made for the LP12. Russ was interested because the approach taken by Stack Audio mirrored some of Russ’s own approach to LP12 upgrades, in that the parts have very high rigidity with the aim of reducing vibrations and colourations from the LP12.
‘I was very impressed by the engineering of the parts; they are beautifully made. Better still, when put together and set up properly they produced a very enjoyable and musical sound. Highly recommended.’
Two levels exist within the Stack Audio range. Starting with Serene which delivers superb performance and excellent value for money. With the success of Serene, Stack Audio went on to develop a select number of the Serene range to make them even better. These are called Ultimate.
