The ability of The Wand Tonearm to resolve detail and yet be musically engaging makes it a great match for Linn Sondek LP12s. In fact some people have argued it is the Naim Aro for this century! The Wand 10.3in was created to be the longest arm you can fit on a Linn without modifying it.

“Bought some Iso Acoustics Orea Indigo feet under my modded Linn Sondek LP12 with Wand Plus and just updated my Zyx R50 Bloom cart to a Phasemation PP500 cart which is a stunning improvement! Honestly your arm has never failed to reward a lot of improvements and tweaks I've done, getting scary how high a standard of reproduction now, very lifelike or "live" sounding!”  Clive AU Building Design, Turntable, Wands, Scary, Indigo, Bloom, Live, Record Player, Indigo Dye

A Truly Classic combination! The Wand Classic 10in on an original Linn LP12 with a Denon DL103. Ewan said "Not surprised to report that the Wand sounds terrific, fine balance across the frequencies, a complete and satisfying sound. The most exacting test is the string quartet, and it did the job to perfection, all the parts clear and properly integrated. Faultless!"

Clive AU; Linn LP12 / Dynavector DV 20X2L  / Wand 10.3in …played Herbie Hancock – Gershwins World … had astonishing dynamics and clarity with depth! Cymbals fizz without intruding over other instruments… bass has tautmess with speed and almost sub bass qualities… followed up with Dr John – Creole Moon (Music on Vinyl ), sublime in terms of the above superlatives plus a few more. I was sceptical there would be much of a discernible improvement over my Ittok/ DV 20X2L combo but I stand… I Stand Corrected, Herbie Hancock, Doctor Johns, Vinyl Music, Some People, Building Design, Turntable, Wands, Clarity
