Linn Lounge featuring music by Elton John

He was the biggest pop star in the world throughout the 1970s, whose epic pop songs straddled music hall, disco, glam, opera, prog-rock, country, Motown and much besides.

Along with The Beatles, Elvis and Michael Jackson, he's one of the most commercially successful musicians of all time. He's sold over 300 million records worldwide, he's beloved for his garish, day-glo costumes and comedy outsize glasses, and he is of course, Mr Reginald Dwight. Or – as we know him – Elton John.

Join us and listen to his music on various HiFi systems.

Refreshments will be provided.

LP12 BIRTHDAY PARTY AT HIDDEN SYSTEMS CELEBRATING 45 YEARS

LP12 at 45 yrs old.png

As the Sondek LP12 turns 45, and the #vinyl LP turns 70, join us on Tuesday 10th July at 7pm to marvel in the legacy of this world-renowned turntable, which has continued to advance thanks to its timeless design and upgradable architecture. 

We’ll celebrate this iconic deck, which has been precision engineered and refined over the last four and a half decades, while reliving your memories, listening to your records and, of course, enjoying some cake – what birthday party is complete without a little cake and good music after all! 

I'll be the guest speaker to include my experience of the LP12 whilst working at the BBC, the best upgrades over the years, take a closer look at phono stages and provide tips on how to extract hidden detail from vinyl.

Please bring along a couple of your favourite records to play on various Sondek LP12s.  Music will be played on a mixture of systems split across two rooms, first floor and basement.

Light refreshments will be served. Dress and party as you like.

Hope you can join me,  Chris

Tickets are limited for a single evening session. Book here

LINN Urika II and Lingo 4 Event
Feb
23
2:00 pm14:00

LINN Urika II and Lingo 4 Event

At the event we will compare Urika I and Urika II along with Lingo 1 vs. Lingo 4

Book you ticket here

LINN Urika II

The new Urika II is a breakthrough in phono stage design. LINN are still extracting all that wonderful analogue information, but now they use their cutting-edge digital signal processing technology to implement the RIAA curve in the digital domain in a way that’s uniquely improved.

It means lower distortion. Lower noise. And, most importantly, more music.

Transported via Exakt Link, the musical information that Urika II delivers is perfectly preserved until the moment it reaches your ears, delivering a musical experience like never before.  It's not essential to have a full Exakt system in order to connect just a DS or DSM with an Exakt port. 

That’s not all. Linn take the same approach with Urika II that they already do with their Exakt-enabled loudspeakers being able to optimise each and every individual device, correcting the variations inherent in the analogue stage to ensure outstanding performance every time.

We can optimise the Urika II to work with clients’ preferred cartridge load values. Simply select from our list of popular cartridges, or enter your own. This can all be done from your favourite armchair to ensure it’s completely optimised for the listening position – that’s Specialist service and advice from Hidden Systems.

Urika II elevates the performance of Klimax LP12 to another level. 

Price  £2750.00 UK Pounds

The Urika II connects to all levels of LINN streamers as shown.

Lingo IV 

Lingo has received a major upgrade to deliver even better sound from your vinyl, thanks to the addition of ground-breaking technology derived from the extraordinary Radikal power supply.

New Lingo incorporates a motor speed management system and uses digital processing technology to make the platter spin more accurately and more consistently. What’s more, it auto-calibrates the motor when the Sondek LP12 is powered on to ensure this accuracy and consistency every time. That’s crucial for music, of course: even the slightest speed variation affects the pitch, and a turntable that isn’t accurate is like a musical instrument that hasn’t been tuned properly.

With on-board circuitry that fits inside the deck and a new external slimline power supply which can be easily concealed, the new model is neater, more compact and cleverer than ever.
