Kandid, the best cartridge we've ever made

Kandid_side_72dpi.jpg 40 years after the introduction of Sondek LP12, we’re delighted to announce the arrival of the best sounding cartridge we’ve ever made - Kandid.

This new moving coil cartridge offers the perfect opportunity to contact your LP12 customers and invite them into your shop to listen to an exceptional new level of vinyl performance.

One of the key performance improvements comes as a result of removing the cartridge housing - probably also the most striking aesthetic difference we’ve made to Kandid.  Stripping back the housing to expose the motor assembly has resulted in an even purer, cleaner sound than ever before.

More accurate audio reproduction is achieved thanks to the repositioning of the stylus and cantilever within the body of the cartridge. The angle of the magnets and coil in the front pole piece has been off-set so that they are parallel when the record is playing which ensures perfect alignment for accurate movement on the record.

Kandid is the perfect partner for our Ekos SE tonearm.  The chassis is machined from the same aircraft grade aluminium as the Ekos SE headshell and features our 3-point mount for completely rigid and accurate coupling with the tonearm.

My first impression of LINN's NEW Akubarik's

Firstly I am all in favour of compact systems so for me it's a great advantage that they are fully active. Technical information you can get from the designer on the following video link http://vimeo.com/search?q=akubarik

I can pick a few points about the design. I don't like blue lights ... I'd hoped it would be smaller to fit more of my customers that have smaller rooms and apartments with neighbours. But actualythey look great, very tidy indeed. A good start and very interesting but how do they perform?

The obvious reference systems are Akurate 242 Aktiv with LINN Akurate amps or Klimax 350A's reference speakers.

Straight off the Akurate 242's can't compete on the bottom end. The Akubariks deliver controlled base no matter the volume. Whether the 3k array performs better than on aktive 242, I don't know but it's probably quite similar. It is very good. It's all very good and well balanced. At no point did I experience any issues with frequencies …

LINN have great new features with the new HDMI 2.0 board
