Linn Kore subchassis with machined armboard

Linn Kore high performance subchassis and machined armboard.

What we Say:

The Linn Kore offers Majik and older LP12 users improved performance over a standard subchassis. It combines an aluminium subchassis with an armboard milled from solid Aluminium.  The Kore is retrofittable to any LP12, for greater performance still Linn offer a complete armboard and subchassis milled from one solid piece of aluminium called the Keel.  The Kore comes fitted as standard on the Linn Akurate level LP12. It offers greater stiffness and stability over the standard laminated armboard and subchassis that comes with the Majik LP12. The Kore armboard comes in a range of variants to suit other arms such as those from SME and Rega. We can fit this to your deck along with any other LP12 upgrades.

The Linn Kore is made with care in the Linn factory in Glasgow.

The Linn LP12 is an iconic product. For over 40 years Linn have developed the LP12 into the product it is today. Each upgrade offers demonstrable improvements to the performance of the deck. It allows customers to incrementally improve the deck as and when they want to. This commitment to the product and the format and philosophy of upgradability follows through into the Linn product range in products such as Selekt and the other DSM products.

What they say:



Following the same design philosophy as our flagship Keel, the Kore sub-chassis and armboard is an essential upgrade step for anyone looking to improve their LP12 and bring it up to Akurate-level performance.

Strengthened by a multi-layer, box construction of 1.5mm thick aluminium, the Kore’s sub-chassis is designed for extra rigidity and removal of unwanted damping, ensuring a more faithful reproduction of your vinyl. Three layers are bonded together using a unique Linn-specified adhesive to form an incredibly stiff structure, while keeping the weight low.

The Kore armboard is precisely machined from solid aluminium and further strengthened with ribs on the underside to provide the ultimate rigidity. This is then bonded to the sub-chassis so that the assembly mirrors the valuable properties of a single piece; as the arm collar is bolted directly to the sub-chassis, the arm has a direct connection to the bearing.
