Klimax LP12 Record Player

The flagship Klimax LP12 turntable offers the pinnacle of vinyl reproduction today, setting the benchmark for turntables worldwide.

5 Years


Over 4 decades worth of research and development has gone into this latest evolution of the turntable that turned the hi-fi industry on its head back at the beginning of Linn’s journey to make better sound. Each precision-engineered upgrade has uncovered more music from the depths of the record groove.

It includes the best of Linn’s precision-engineered upgrades, and because it’s modular, you can update it whenever we release a new upgrade. A Klimax LP12 is an investment that will amaze and reward you for years to come.

Even after 45 years, the LP12 is the turntable by which all others are judged, extracting more information from vinyl than any other turntable. The LP12 is considered by many to be the most iconic turntable ever. Seemingly ageless, the design never goes out of style and will be a key piece of the turntable market for years to come.

The Klimax LP12 features the Keel machined sub-chassis and armboard, Radikal motor control unit & power supply, a Brushed DC motor in acoustically isolated housing, Linn Ekos SE precision tonearm, Kandid moving coil (MC) cartridge and the Urika II Moving Coil phono stage built-in to suspended base.
