What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Linn Axis turntable

For many years the Linn Sondek LP12 has set the standards by which all other turntables are judged.
Now Linn engineere built the new LinnAxis with the same precision as the Sondek,  but they've made it more afordable. In fac, for a lower price, we/ve given the Axis advanced features you won't find in any other turntable at any price.
Exceptional precision is provided by a pair of low distortion, class A amplifiers driving each of the motor phases. A "smart" controller senses the motor load and provides higher voltage during sterup and reduces the voltage (and noise) once the platter reaches speed.
Electronic switching turns the Axis on or off and provides a smooth transition from 33 to 45 rpm.
An ingenious self-aligning suspension system isolates the armand platter from the motor, base, and external disturbances.

"Of course, the Linn Sondek Lp12 remains the reference, but we know you won't be disappointed with our second best. We haven't cut corners on our legendary engineering, only on the price."

The Axis is a precision built, twin speed (33.3 rpm and 45 rpm) transcription turntable. It is
mounted in a black veneered medite plinth, with a dark grey top-board and equipped with a
moulded, hinged dustcover.
Motor Power Supply:
Linn-designed 2-speed electronic ‘Class A’ power supply incorporating a stall detect circuit.
This monitors the load on the motor from start-up and reduced the power supply to the motor
once the correct speed has been achieved. It will also increase the power to the motor as
required. When this happens the relevant LED on the switch will brighten to show increased
power, and dim once power is reduced. Easily changed (internally) from 110V to 240V and
will run on 50Hz or 60Hz without modification.

AXIS Specifications
Platter:  12” diameter (305mm) aluminium diecast and accurately machined on all matching and visible
surfaces. Weight approximately 1.5kg. The platter is supplied with a felt mat.
Bearing:  Single point system running in an oil bath. The thrust pad which must support the weight of
the platter on a single point is top grade steel, machined, hardened, ground and lapped to a mirror finish.
Motor:  24-pole precision synchronous low noise, high torque motor. Fully shielded and mechanically
isolated from the main bearing assembly by resilient mounting and a damped, uniquely designed suspension system.
Speeds:  33-1/3 rpm and 45 rpm.
Speed Accuracy:  0.1%
Suspension:  Three silicone, custom moulded rubber mounts, providing isolation for both the turntable/arm from the motor/plinth, and the feet from the plinth. Easily adjusted to keep record platform
Drive:  Flat, precision ground neoprene rubber belt driven by a concentric drive pulley; concentricity
Top-plate:  Heavy medite wood, laminated on both sides.
Power Consumption:  8 Watts
Dimensions (W x H x D):  445 x 140 x 349 mm (with lid open 400 mm high)
