Why would you say only on an LP12 Charlie?- I advise buying only a super as-new doubly-boxed/Allen keys/all gubbins etc one to use ONLY on LP12.
Hi there, I believe that the mounting distance for the Jelco 250ST (straight arm) is 210mm so it is this arm that is most suitable as a straight drop in on the Lencos. The mounting distance for the S-shaped SA-250 and the SA-750D is 214mm, so not really a straight drop in as they would be a few mm out.
The arms, when bought, come with the suitable collar which fits, with a little fettling, into the present arm pillar opening on the Lenco top plate. You would have to drill 3 small holes around the hole in order to secure the collar in place with the provided bolts. it's a pretty straightforward job.
Ittok should be a big step up from a Basik+ even with a lower end cart & the Basic + has very limited potential with M.C. carts so you shouldn't expect it to shine with such a pairing whereas an Ittok can easily unlock the potential of MC carts.Heretic question: Are the sonic improvements gonna be massive compared to a good old Linn Basic Plus?
