New Majik LP12 with Krane Tonearm

A long-standing favourite, Majik LP12 is the ideal first step into high performance vinyl playback. Using carefully selected Linn-engineered components, Majik LP12 lets you experience the iconic Sondek LP12 in an affordable package.

In line with recent enhancements to its digital sister product, Majik DSM, the deck has also been given a boost in performance in 2020 thanks to the addition of the Karousel bearing earlier in the year and now the new Krane tonearm.

With these two key improvements, vinyl lovers can enjoy even greater value from this high quality starter turntable. The new high performance Krane tonearm features a static-balanced design is hand assembled with high quality, precision aluminium and stainless steel components. It includes a polished Tungsten and Sapphire vertical bearing with dual ceramic horizontal bearing assembly, both of which are long-lasting and provide very low friction/rotational mass.

Krane has a range of adjustments making it easy to set up, including a laser etched scale for accurate and repeatable VTA adjustment, azimuth adjustment combined with a fixed offset angle to ensure perfect alignment of the cartridge and stylus. An adjustable headshell design ensures effective length is absolutely precise for proper cartridge alignment and performance.

Good Vibrations: Restoring the Bottom Two Octaves

The Importance of Subwoofers

We are enthusiastic advocates of stereo with subs and an authorised REL Acoustics dealer for many years. We are experts at setting up stereo with subs and regularly demonstrate this to astonished clients.

Once you have listened to a stereo with subs system, its hard to go back. Adding one or more subwoofers to your stereo system adds an entirely different dimension to what you hear. There’s richness and warmth and beauty that exists in your system that a subwoofer can unlock to make bass that really leaps into a room, integrating with your left and right loudspeakers for that deep, really satisfying bass that you’re after.

Restoring the bottom two octaves is where all the magic occurs, because if you get that magic perfect, it just releases the upper eight octaves of music. So, everything is affected holistically when the subwoofer(s) blend perfectly with your main speakers and when everything comes to life in a way it never has before.

2020 has been an extremely difficult and unpredictable year for manufacturers and retailers generally, yet specialist audio continued to thrive as we spend more time at home with our music and systems.

The value of listening to music cannot be underestimated as it transports us to places outside of Lockdowns and Tiered restrictions.

More importantly, the value of owning a hi-fi system has never been greater and adding or upgrading for improved stereo or even surround sound provides even better home enterainment for music and movies.


We thank all of our clients for their business in 2020.
