Still, you could be a newbie, as I once was.I have an old TROIKA to sell as well (Listed here separately) The AKIVA was and still is arguably Linns Flagship moving coil cartridge. It embodied LINN's professed continued commitment to deploying new technology and new knowledge in the pursuit of improving music reproduction from the irreplaceable store of music performance that continues to accumulate on vinyl recordings. The design of the AKIVA cartridge incorporated a new and advanced magnetic assembly structure to produce a higher output with noticeably better tracking and even lower distortion than previous cartridge products. The integrity of the AKIVA cartridge design ensures greatly improved signal transference without loss of vital information and without any spurious noise from this super-precise, ultra-linear, direct coupled, moving coil cartridge.
