The lid looks a great match where did you source it from?

Company called PRDisplays.. he operates on eBay in uk but will custom make to any size. This size is exactly the same dimensions as the Roksan Xerxes so I’ve ordered one for that and he will cut the exact hinge slots too.

He does Linn sized ones for less than £60 - am going to order one for my Lad's Linn ... I was worried when their add disappeared before Christmas so I dropped them a line and the response was great - they shut down orders over the Christmas Period to avoid problems of disappointment (people tend to be more anxious about delivery times I guess) and to have a rest ...  Real world thinking - right up my street

I’m well impressed at the quality. Slightly thicker acrylic but really well made. They might be a tad heavier for those linn hinges but all the same, I think they are far better than any Rega, Linn or Roksan lid at less than half the price!

Got mine a couple of years back for £13 lol - it has strobe markings on the top too .. bargain ... I got mine to use instead of my lovely aluminium spring clamp (scared with age it might break lol)  and it makes it easy to check the speed without having to fish out my goldring strobe ..

Ah well that is true but I think it is the good old expression - fair days work for a fair days pay applies here. 

He is not a rip off merchant (Linn charge something like £150 for a lid - and whichever way you look at it you can buy complete turntables with an acrylic lid for less money, so in anyone's terms the Linn offering has to be considered .. a massive rip off).
