    Loved my Lp12 on one back in the 90s. I still ise them on and off today but the construction of the legs has changed a bit over the years. Not Sure it will make any odds though and I'd still expect a good sound with an LP12 at least.

    yes i have read that the legs are not solid any more just the first 2 inches,but for under a tenner its worth a gamble i think.

    Jamie , I bought the Lack bench and a table the same colour . I pinched the legs off the table and used them on the bench , making the bench much higher . I use my server , Rega Brio R and Rega DAC on top and love it . You can't cut it though as it's hollow inside . However because of this it has similar characteristics to Torlyte .
    You can then use the legs from the bench for your turntable

    These are supposed to be very good too.

    That's a brilliant idea.

    Iím using LAC coffee tables.

    I also found that the legs are hollow so I popped down to B&Q and found some square pine timber which fitted inside the leg perfectly.

    So cut to 5 inch lengths and glued inside the leg with resin worked well and allowed spikes to be fitted to each leg.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Like them.

    Cheap and easy to add to as the HIFI pile grows.

    IKEA 'lack' tables are a decades old Audio Rack idea.
    I have some in my loft space. Hey! Cheapest tables etc., money can buy as my excuse.
    My Kids broke one once.. surprisingly/astonisingly flimsy lashups.
    Consequently I've never put any audio gear on them.. seemed as too risky TBH.
    Linked table at least looks like Furniture.. likely far more acceptable to the housemate
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.
