Uphorik

Universal Phono stage 

MC/MM phono stage in Akurate chassis

Get more from your vinyl collection as you fine-tune your turntable system with the Linn Uphorik phono stage.

Sharing the same dual mono topology and fully screened differential input as with Urika, the Uphorik phono stage offers both versatility and exceptional performance.

As the most flexible phono stage available, the Uphorik features separate dedicated inputs and circuits for moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC) cartridges, and has a full range of adjustments which allows you to easily optimise its settings to any cartridge, should you wish to upgrade in the future.

Uphorik's flexibility also extends to connections. With a choice of balanced or unbalanced outputs, and RCA or XLR inputs, Uphorik is guaranteed to always meet your requirements, no matter how the rest of your system evolves.

  • Moving coil (MC) & moving magnet (MM) dedicated phono stage pre-amplifier
  • Configurable load and gain switches for every cartridge combination
  • Dual mono channel separation with internal shielding
  • Balanced and unbalanced connections
  • Linn Dynamik Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS)

Urika

Internal phono stage - Internally mounted for superior performance

Exakt Digital Moving Coil phono stage built-in to LP12

This unique moving coil phono stage fits snugly inside the Sondek LP12 turntable and works with the Radikal motor control to deliver the best performance possible when you use an analogue pre-amplifier.

Urika delivers an impressive level of clarity and detail thanks to its location within the plinth itself which brings it as close as possible to the tonearm, minimising cable length and therefore signal loss and noise. Mounted on its own integrated Trampolin base board, the phono stage is also isolated from unwanted vibrations.

To ensure consistent and faithful reproduction of the music, Urika features a dual mono design that banishes any potential crosstalk.

Direct-coupled RCA and transformer-coupled XLR outputs allow you to choose the best connection option for your system and guarantee exceptional performance in all conditions.

Powered by Radikal, which also powers and controls the LP12's top of the range DC motor, Urika is a transformative upgrade, letting you experience an exceptional performance from your LP12 turntable.

  • Moving coil (MC) internal phono stage for LP12
  • Differential arm cable (T-Kable) with full screening
  • Independent dual mono channel circuitry
  • Mounted on integrated Trampolin for phono stage isolation and improved deck suspension
  • Powered by Linn Radikal

Urika II

Digital phono stage - A breakthrough in phono stage design

Moving Coil phono stage built-in to LP12

Using our cutting-edge digital signal processing technology, Urika II now carries out the key process of implementing the RIAA curve in the digital domain. This brings you lower distortion, lower noise and more music.

Transported over 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.

That’s not all. We take the same approach with Urika II that we do with our Exakt-enabled loudspeakers. This means we can optimise each and every individual device, correcting the variations inherent in the analogue stage to ensure outstanding performance every time.

Urika II can be optimised to work with your preferred cartridge load values. Simply choose from our list of popular cartridges or enter your own, and easily change when you next upgrade your cartridge.

Urika II is powered by our extraordinary Radikal power supply and is mounted on the integrated Trampolin base board within the plinth of your Sondek LP12 to maintain phono stage isolation and improve deck suspension.

The perfect upgrade from Urika, we’ve tested Urika II in incredible detail to measure the difference it makes, and most importantly of all we used our ears to listen.

  • Moving coil (MC) internal phono stage for LP12
  • The most precise implementation of the RIAA curve
  • Converts music signal to digital at the earliest point possible
  • Lossless digital output over Exakt Link (requires an Exakt-enabled Linn DS or Linn DSM player in the system)
  • Component manufacturing tolerances measured and corrected
  • Optimised for your chosen cartridge
