    Default Linn troika

    Selling my Linn Troika.

    Ive owned this for about 8 years. It came on an LP12/Exos that I bought.
    It sounded really good, but eventually, I wanted to try different turntables, so sold the LP12 and arm.

    The Troika sounded great, so I kept it.

    Eventually. I moved on to some really expensive cartridges ( I.O., Cadenza black , and FR 7 series ), and the Troika lay unused.

    I decided to sell it 5 years ago, and after setting it all up to check it still sounded great, ( it did ) put it up for sale on 3 forums.

    I found a buyer and we agreed that I would bring it to the WAM show at Scalford, where I was an exhibitor. (2014 ).

    I agreed to demo it there.

    I play tested it a few days beforehand and it sounded excellent.

    Sod’s law.... I get the the show, and on the Sunday morning, set up the Troika ready to demo.
    Nightmare... its only sounding on one Channel !!!

    A few guys came and tried to help me. Graham/Valvebloke in particular went above and beyond to try to help. Even trying to solder one of the leads for me.

    But we couldn’t get it to work properly.

    So, I just had to apologise to my “buyer”.

    It came home with me, and has lain unused, untested and unloved since that day.

    Time to move it on.

    Selling as it is for £110, including post.

    Collection/inspection is fine. I’m in West Lancs.

    It was sounding really good a few days before Scalford....and really good on only one side at Scalford !!!!

    It is hopefully not a big deal, but I dont know.

    Ive taken a few photos. I can take others if needed.

    You will see the remnants of Grahams solder on the white tag !!!
