Buy a Linn Turntable for Your Vinyl Collection

Linn turntables help you get quality sound out of your vinyl collection. You can find these record players on eBay for an affordable price. Here are a few things you should know before you purchase a Linn product.

Do you need an amplifier for your turntable?

You will have to check your specific model and equipment. Some turntables already have a built-in preamp. Many vintage Linn turntable models already have an amplifier installed. You should look for the words "PHONO" on your inputs. If they have these markings, your turntable has a built-in preamp. A turntable with a USB port also has a built-in preamp. If you need to connect an amp, you will have to run a few cables to the turntable.

Does a Linn turntable have an anti-skate feature?

All Linn turntables have the anti-skate feature. The anti-skate feature distributes the proper amount of weight on the tonearm and the cartridge. For proper playback, skating force pushes the tonearm towards the center of the record. It creates friction between the records surface and the needle. This force must be properly balanced to prevent skipping. You can control the amount of weight on the tonearm. There is a rotating knob that you can adjust for the right counterweight. As you balance the weight, your tonearm should be parallel to the records surface.

Can you replace the cartridge needle on a Linn turntable?

Turntable needles see a lot of wear and tear. If you want your used turntable to perform well, you will need to replace the cartridge and needle. It is a simple process to replace them. You never want to play a worn needle on a record. It can scratch the surface of the vinyl. A worn needle and cartridge can also damage the player. The cartridge can be removed from the head unit. A new cartridge just needs to be plugged into the tonearm. Your tonearm may have to be rebalanced with the new cartridge. It is always a good idea to keep your tonearm and turntable properly calibrated.
