I can upgrade my current Akurate + 530 system to a 2016 Klimax Exakt source for a very good price. It seems that I cannot directly connect my LP 12 to it (as with Akurate Exakt hub). Is the solution necessarily to use Urika 1 or 2?  Thank you.

Both the Urika 1 and 2 need a Radikal to operate

Assuming you dont have a Radikal Power Supply, you would need to obtain a suitable separate phono stage to convert the signal from the cartridge to 'line level'.

This could then be plugged in to the Analogue input of the Klimax DSM.

Can you tell us the spec of your LP12? This would enable us to recomend a suitable phono stage comensurate with your expectations?

If you're not willing to splash out on a Radikal (which is recommended!) in order to use a Urika, I would strongly recommend the Lejonklou Entity MC phono stage.

But since a few of us are upgrading our Radikals now, maybe you could find a used Akurate Radikal & Urika 1? Going from the internal phono stage of the ADSM to Urika 1 is a BIG step forward 😀

Thanks for your feedback.  I am equipped with an LP 12 Akurate level (Akito, Krystal, Kore, Trampoline) with a Radikal engine.

That gives you a few choices then, all of which will be a big upgrade from your existing set up.

Urika, Uphorik, P75 etc.

I was listening to an Akurate LP12 with Radikal last week, it was playing via the Linn Uphorik, this is an awesome combination.

Urika II would be the option I’d go for, but it will be hard to find a second hand Urika II as I can’t imagine any current owners would want to part with theirs.

For the record, I’m not a big fan of the Urika 2. Try to get a dem if you can.
