£25K . . . So nothing has changes.  'Designed in 1972'?  Did I not hear, the TD160 comes into it somewhere along the line? . . . a 160, leaves change to buy a lot of decent vinyl and Whisky . . . or am I just a misguided old cynic who has his wires crossed :?

£25K . . . So the old 'B*** S***' is still there, nothing has changes.  'Designed in 1972'?  Did I not hear, the TD160 comes into it somewhere along the line? . . . a 160, leaves change to buy a lot of decent vinyl and Whisky . . . or am I just a misguided old cynic who has his wires crossed :? http://www.whathifi.com/news/linn-launches-limited-edition-whisky-cask-sondek-turntable

That would have been the AR turntable that inspired the TD150 that inspired the Ariston RD11 that Jack built that inspired... (get's a bit litigious here but we've all heard the different sides) ... etc.

Exactly Chebby, a better word might have been 'inspired' in 1972?

Brings back memories...my dad has told me several times that back in the day when he bought what is now my TD160 (ie early 70s when they were both new), he was just £20 short of buying a Linn LP12. But £20 was a fair bit of money back then, not exactly back-pocket change. Not long ago, when I told him how much top-spec LP12s cost new, it very nearly killed the old fella off.

But even so...I do like the look of that Linn.
