RV HIFI says:

The Linn Sondek LP12 transcription turntable was introduced in 1972, this British cult classic is regarded in the top 10 most significant turntables of all time! This original unit includes the Grace G-707 tone arm with a Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge, this is a early unit, circa 1974. Musically it is superb, warm analog sound and vocals are outstanding!
