Linn teams up with iPod designer to unveil stunning Apple-esque turntable

If you’re the kind of person who can drop $60,000 on a turntable, Scottish audio maker Linn has just the thing for you. Former Apple design chief Jony Ive has created a new version of the firm’s iconic Sondek LP12 turntable to mark its 50th anniversary. And as you can see from the image of the new version, the Sondek LP12-50 is a gorgeous thing.

I bet it sounds incredible too. I’ve worked for Linn in the past and that means I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time in their demo rooms listening to all my favorite music on high-end audio kit that costs more than my flat. Listening to the Sondek LP12 through one of the best AV receivers and best stereo speakers, or best wired headphones, is one of the best musical experiences you could ever hope to have.
