    I have used my Decca on a few arms and IMHO it sounds best on a damped unipivot. It's currently on a Kuzma Stogi S arm, but also sounded great on my Hadcock. It worked pretty well on my Jelco with damping fluid, not so well on a Technoarm. I suspect Deccas won't be an ideal match for your Syrinx. I had the Hadcock combination on a STD 305M (very similar to a Linn) and it was a good combination

    Many thanks all. Lots to ponder. I guess the total price that I can get the Decca and arm for will also play a role. Another question that has come to mind: I assume none of the arms mentioned will be too heavy for the Linn's suspension?

    I have fitted various Notts arms on LP12s with no problem. Also Hadcocks and Aros.

    IMO uni's on a suspended deck is an accident waiting to happen and the Aro was quickly moved onto Garrard 301. A much more stable platform without an arm lifting device.
    Don't understand your concerns with the unipivot arms and a suspended deck
    The Aro and lp12 is a classic combo... why is it an accident waiting to happen ?

    Yes, inclined to agree with James here. I thought my technoarm sounded rather good with my decca untill I tried a mayware , recently bought here on this forum, just in a different league altogether. Sublime.
    Decca recommends uni s of course. good luck.

    Bouncy deck with a wobbly arm and only a finger hook to lift it off. I wasn't happy lifting the needle half way across a record.
    Felt like grabbing a cat from an open window

    Well this is for a 2nd table, so I'll make sure to use it only while I'm on the wine, when I switch over to whisky I'll also switch over to my non-bouncy deck or even safer digital!
