Linn Lingo III LP-12 Phono Power Supply

The role of the Lingo is to ensure that the LP12’s platter revolves at exactly the correct speed, 33.3 or 45rpm, at all times. It also ensures that no ‘noise’ is issued from the turntable’s motor – a vital factor in extracting the maximum amount of information from every record.

Low noise oscillators combine with filtering of the current and separate drives for both motor phases, to provide the LP12 with clean, precise power.

The Lingo uses ‘stall detection’ circuitry to feed the motor with a higher voltage for increased start-up torque. When the platter reaches the selected speed, this load-sensing circuitry reduces the power output. From then on the motor just maintains the platter’s own inertia to silently maintain a constant speed.

Lingo is available in a choice of black or silver finishes.


Key Features:

  • Separate, extremely low-noise crystal oscillators for 331/3 and 45 rpm
  • Precision filtering of mains voltage to minimise harmonic distortion
  • Load-sensing circuitry provides extra torque at start-up
  • Electrically isolated from mains supply variations
  • Easy upgrade for any SONDEK LP12 turntable
