 here is the GOLD Hercules II Power Supply for the Linn LP12 Sondek
PLEASE NOTE DELIVERY IS 14 DAYS FROM ORDER


THE HERCULES IS SWITCHABLE FOR WORLDWIDE USAGE
 
CE rated; a hifi component in which you can be confident.

Thought I would share with you guys my impressions of the Hercules after about 30 hours of listening.

The Hercules makes you want to listen to whatever is playing more intently. For instance, I have found myself distracted from reading, when a passage of music startles. 

You find suddenly the musicians are there, performing for you, when you discover a previously unheard guitar chord or cymbal. The soundstage is much more expansive, everything within it properly proportioned, focused and grainless. There is a natural, expressive dynamic life to the music that is captivating. Some quiet passages whisper and loud passages are startling. There is a directness and more immediacy to the bass notes. The treble and midrange are much more defined and this connects the listener more with the performance.

Do I sound as though I am pleased

 
HiFi World (October 2007) stated that the Hercules gave the LP12 "improved soundstaging, increased 'confidence' to performance, better pace and switched 45rpm...  also improved the bass end", concluding that "Even if you are happy with your old Valhalla'd LP12 and hadn't even thought of upgrading it, you might be surprised at the improvements a mere £170 investment will bring you.".

Here are some of our past customer comments:
 
"Anyone who wants to upgrade the old LP12 needs one of these! More value than any other upgrade, I would, if having another LP12, do the Hercules before changing the arm."  Mike Jackson
 
"The bass is more controlled, soundstage is more filled up, and the placement of the instruments is much better, a lot more detail. Voices are more realistic, the "S" sound is very 'real' and not "Shh". This upgrade is a real improvement (5 stars) for me." Regards, Jules

The Hercules sits over the mountings already present on the chassis if you have a Valhalla (if you have an older, basic power supply, you need to obtain a cross brace to mount the board onto). The Hercules II replaces the Valhalla board completely and can be fitted in a very short time, merely requiring the mains lead and motor wires to be disconnected and refitted to the new board once in place. Very simple to install. Full instructions are provided.

The new on/off switch that replaces the LP12s original has two LEDs fitted rather than the one to show the selected speed as the Hercules II offers 33 and 45 rpm. Even handier is the fact that both speeds are selected through this single button - from standby mode you simply press to switch on at 33 and light the red light, or press for 5 seconds to switch to 45 rpm and light the blue LED.

Manufactured to a very high standard in Hong Kong for Stamford Audio, the heart of the Hercules II is a pair of low noise, high precision crystal oscillator circuits that have their frequencies divided to generate a clean AC sine wave which drives the motor at either 50HZ (for 33rpm) or 67.5 Hz (for 45rpm). Build quality is superb, using superb components resulting in an extremely reliable upgarde for your Linn LP12.

The Hercules II will work with 230/240v or 110v just by switching the fuse on the board to the correct housing.

NO NEED TO CHANGE THE MOTOR.

The Hercules II will also work with other Airpak/Premotec motored Turntables like the Rega and Thorens.

Full 12 months warranty on this brand new product.
