Upgrade your purchase with these options:
The LP12 Top Plate is one of the most multi-connected components in an LP12 – it is connected directly to the plinth and to the motor and, via the suspension, to the sub chassis, armboard and tonearm.
Stack Audio’s aim with their LP12 Top Plate was create a rigid, stiff plate that was resistant to warping and that was able to dissipate vibration to reveal low level musical detail and information. There are two versions of the Stack Audio Top Plate: the first is the SERENE Top Plate which consists of two machined 1.5mm hardened stainless steel sheets, bonded by a specially developed adhesive which has vibration-dissipating properties.
The SERENE Top Plate is twice as thick as the standard top plate, sitting flush with the plinth.
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.
