This is our Silent Base for the Linn LP12. TheSilent Base shares important design features of our acclaimed Silent Stage 1 & 2 Isolation Platforms hence the name. Designed to replace the resonant hardboard base of the deck, the SB is made from rigid black 10mm Acrylic and uses the same black chromium spikes (and spike dampers) as the Silent Stage platforms. Suspended sub-chassis decks need a solid, non-resonant base and spikes are the ideal support in this situation. Small rubber feet just do not allow the suspension to work properly. Acrylic is inherently non-resonant and is a superb material for a solid base board. The Silent Base features three height adjustable spikes for easy levelling, and access cut-outs for spring adjustment and tone-arm wiring. The spikes come complete with holders, should you not wish to mark the surface on which they stand. They also have damping rings fitted, made from the same superb material used in our Motor Vibration Absorbers. These tight fitting rings have a dual role. Firstly they reduce the amount of energy transmitted to the base, and secondly they stabilise any spike which has been adjusted from the ‘fully screwed up’ position – ensuring all spikes are solid and don’t move. Fitting the base is a simple job, and it comes complete with the crosshead wood screws required. Make no mistake the Silent Base will dramatically improve the sound of your deck… It has even amazed us the LP12 sounds better in every conceivable way – cleaner throughout the whole frequency spectrum, vastly reduced surface noise, better imaging etc. Although we expected sound quality gains, we never imagined a base board could improve the LP12 to this level! Apart from the sound quality gains, the Silent Base also has three side benefits – easy suspension adjustment, easy levelling and finally, it really does improve the look of the turntable! This really is a beautifully made product – OK it’s under the deck so you don’t see it, but all the same – all the edges are polished (even the inside edges of the access cut-outs), the spike bases are recessed into the Acrylic and the screw holes are all recessed, so no screw heads are visible from the front.The Silent Base is also available for the Thorens 160 series and Rega turntables.UK Postage 12.00, Europe 25.00, USA & Rest of World 35.00.

I thought that you might like to know that my recent purchases of your acrylic mat and acrylic silent base have improved my LP12 way beyond any previous tweaks and modifications. Having recently changed my cartridge to a Shure V15VxMR I was initially impressed by it’s trackability, lack of sibilance and general smoothness in the higher registers. Unfortunately, this came at the cost of a detectable loss of detail at the top end and a marginally confused bass line. Adding your mat and silent base brought significant sonic improvements, inducing additional clarity to instruments such as the harpsichord and a more solid imagery to cellos and basses. Surface noise has also significantly reduced. What a bargain when such obvious improvements can be obtained for the price of a cheap interconnect. Congratulations on a great range of products! J.L. (UK) ” I have now fitted the base and as you promised the sound really does vastly improve. Not just control and detail of bass but overall sound much more incisive and involving. It was hard to drag myself away from playing more and more records. Thank you for an excellent product which is worth every penny of its cost. ” C.P. (UK) ” A quick note to say that the product is first class.  I have an LP 12 that is 18 years old and has been upgraded over the years with the latest Linn specs. The original base has never been changed and I must say what a difference the rigid base makes.  The product is well made and nicely finished.  It does exactly what is says on the tin and more !!!! ” A.C. (UK)” Silent Base delivered quickly and is superb ” B.R. (UK)” Enormous improvement to an LP12. A real quality item and an absolute bargain! ” S.Z. (UK)” Well I have finally got around to fitting the Silent Base to my Linn and because I had previously been using it without a base at all I wouldn’t have thought it could make much difference to the sound, but to my amazement I was very wrong! There seemed to be more precision and clarity, then I took off the rubber damping rings which I had fitted before my first listening test and “yes” it was better still. I can’t thank you enough. ” B.G.R. (UK)” Unbelievable upgrade. Like moving from Akito to Ekos arm for silly money. Buy it. ” P.M. (UK)

 

” The timing has really tightened up, more and better bass and more detail. It has a really good ‘bouncy’ rhythmic sound that makes the music enjoyable and danceable. It seems to bring the best out of some of my scratchy old records as well as the good pressings. I am really impressed – my LP12 is not what you would describe as high-end, its really old, with a Moth RB250 and Goldring 1042 cartridge – but the base has really made a difference. Even my wife (who thinks I imagine most of the differences in sound) admitted to being able to hear the difference :) Thanks again.” W.C. (UK)

 


” Excellent item, would recommend this to all Thorens owners without a doubt, A+++ ” R.B. (UK)” Thanks. Excellent build. Very happy. ” P.W. (UK) Thorens owner” Easy to fit. Access to springs a bonus. Real difference in isolation. ” J. L. (Australia). ” Your acrylic base board for the LP12 is phenomenal, hence I want this too (Acrylic Platter Mat) ” M.P. (Ireland) ‘ Great product, excellent packaging, clear instructions – smooth! ‘ M.M. (UK)’ Amazing improvement !!! ‘ S.C. (Portugal) Thorens TD160 Owner’ The increase in Bass clarity is enormous. Going a lot deeper and clean as a whistle. ‘ G.L. (UK) LP12 Owner ‘ Hi Stuart. Sorry not to have been in touch any sooner. I fitted the Acrylic base that I had from you recently …. excellent. I really like the clean detailed sound. Prior to buying the first kit from you I had bought a high grade tone arm cable from Russ Andrews. Anyway having now installed that, your motor suppression kits and the acrylic base the old LP12 really does sound world class. ‘ N.H. (UK)’ Hello Stuart. The results are wonderful. The Silent Base makes that I have a new LP12 with more musicality, space, precision and so on……. It’s a real bargain and I don’t regret this deal . Thank you very much again ‘ D.N. (France) ‘ Excellent Seller – Fantastic product and one of the best upgrades made to my LP12 ‘ A.B. (UK)’ There is a definite improvement in the overall soundstage, which I find to be much tighter & clearer, which is probably due to the elimination of resonance caused by the original base ‘ C.L. (UK) LP12 Owner’ Hi Stuart, Just a quick mail regarding the Silent Base I collected from you last Thursday. I succesfully fitted the base to my new maple plinth at the weekend, no problems fitting and yes a good improvement in bass tightness. I’ve used the spiked feet straight onto my glass support and works very well indeed ‘ J.A. (UK) LP12 Owner Very nice product G.G. (USA)’ The improvement the base has made to my TD160S is nothing short of miraculous! ‘ J.C. (Greece)’ Beautiful product, excellent transaction and superb communication. The best! ‘ J.B. (USA)’ Just fitted theSilentbase. Cannot understand how such a simple piece of kit can make such adifference to my LP12. Also, so nice to receive something engineered to suchsuperb standards. Thank you! The improvement to soundstage, bass focus and depth and smoothness oftone is incredible. My early ’80s LP12 (Valhalla with no other mods) c/wLVX+/Goldring 1006 is transformed. ‘ J.B. (UK)This is what Hi-Fi World Magazine said about our Silent Stage 1 Isolation Platform: “At normal listening levels the platform proved extremely effective in decoupling the Rega from its surroundings, allowing more music and less distortion to filter through to my jaded lug-holes! Surface noise on a 1972 Decca/Eclipse pressing of Vaughn Williams Symphony Number 3 was less obtrusive than it had been before, the performance as a whole better integrated and more convincing. Dynamics were improved, and rock and Jazz music in particular contained more sparkle and life than before. As an aside the platform also worked very well underneath a Naim CDI, bringing a much better sense of focus and rhythmic snap to the music.”  Thanks for looking at this auction.
