Fitting the Stack Audio SERENE Baseboard is straight forward as it is a simple replacement for a standard baseboard. Depending on which Linn baseboard you are replacing you should drill pilot holes in the edge of the plinth for the additional fixings. The original fibre LP12 baseboards have 4 fixing holes; metal Linn baseboards have 10 screw fixing holes. The SERENE Baseboard has 12 holes, 3 on each side. Connect the earth cable to the cross-brace mounting point before fixing the board in place and check to make sure you haven’t disturbed the arm cable. It is important that this should not touch the baseboard. Once fixed into the plinth, screw the 3 height adjustable feet into the threaded holes on the underside and level on your equipment rack or playing surface. SAFETY NOTICE It is essential that you unplug your LP12 from the mains before removing the baseboard. Internal power supplies like the Valhalla carry live high voltages; the on/off switch merely disconnects the motor from the power supply which is still live when connected to the mains.
Rick Becker, enjoythemusic.com: The effect of the SERENE Base Board was immediately noticed in the clapping of the audience leading into the first song when I lowered the tonearm, even though I was positioned behind the right speaker. Further listening through the evening into Valentine’s Day confirmed my instantaneous impression that you’ve got a real winner. http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0719/Stack_Audio_Linn_LP12_Turntable_Tweaks_Review.htm Winner of a 2019 Enjoy the Music.com Blue Note award: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0919/Blue_Note_Awards_2019/Stack_Audio.htm
Installing the SERENE Cross-brace whilst the baseboard removed is an affordable upgrade that provides cumulative sonic benefits by helping internal power supplies provide more accurate control of motor timing as well as stiffening the plinth. For even greater benefits and superior feet, consider fitting the Stack Audio ULTIMATE Baseboard instead of SERENE.
