Minos LP12 motor speed controller

(4 customer reviews)


Minos Turntable speed controller – Replacement for Linn Valhalla / Hercules / Lingo / Mose etc.

Most Linn turntables with Valhalla boards do not run at 33.33 rpm and have quite large variations in speed, some running as high as 34rpm. Upgrading to the Minos motor controller makes significant improvements to the listening sound stage, the sense of timing and rhythm of the track is far tighter.

220V version is supplied as standard unless 110V is selected from the option below.

The Minos board is designed, assembled and tested in the UK. Microprocessor controlled and fully CE approved.

  • CE, UKCA approved
  • Electronic switching between 33.3 rpm and 45 rpm
  • High-efficiency low power consumption
  • Upgradeable to a Zeus controller
  • Highly accurate and pure sine wave frequency synthesis generated for 50Hz or 67.5Hz controlled to 0.001 Hz
  • Control over motor parameters such as frequencies, phase angle, voltage amplitude via a serial interface. Adjusting these values enables the smoothest motor operation with minimum motor noise and vibration. Values may be written to EEPROM once optimum setup is achieved. The boards will ship with suggested default values but are fully configurable to suit your setup via a USB serial connection.
  • Configurable Auto rotation on the application of main power
  • Configurable low-power auto sleep timer when turntable idle.
  • Fits on the original Linn Valhalla mounting.
  • Ready for Linn Karousel bearing.
  • Class A motor drive circuitry.
  • Less heat is generated than the original Valhalla due to redesigned PSU section (no more burned-out resistors).
  • Can be installed in Linn Axis – We have a kit for Axis MK1 or MK2 available – see separate listing for conversion kit – Simply wire to existing motor.
  • Supply 110v-230v 50/60Hz.
  • Works with 50Hz and 60Hz synchronous Linn/Premotec/Philips/Airpax 110V motors.
  • Can be upgraded to a Zeus at a later stage.

    This is some upgrade for very little money for an LP12 well impressive. (There’s a £50 refund when you send in the old Valhalla and switch**) 👏👏 **Store Edit: This was a promotion and will not run continuously.

    Put new life into an old lp12. Easy to fit and works very well.
    Change from 33rpm to 45rpm with ease.
    Would highly recommend. Great upgrade.
    Thank you will shop again. Paul W

    Just fitted this to my 2007 Linn Sondek LP12/Rega300. Blown away by the difference. Noise now undetectable, and the music is clearer, much more defined..
    Best value upgrade to any LP12 … I’m delighted

    Bought this as an upgarde for my 1984 LP12 with an orriginal Valhalla supply so that I can play the new 45 rpm vinyl albums that is becoming more and more popular. Installation was a breeze and took all of 30 minutes and my LP 12 was singing at 45 rpm with the new Mark Knopfler One Deep River Album. It is a very modern design, motor startup more quite not sure about any sound difference yet but will give that a carefull listen at some point. Delivery world wide was also a plus as not all European suppliers deliver to South Africa. Delivery worked a breeze and ressulted in a final very cost effective solution. Quality of the board is very good. I defenitely reccommend this as a great value for money and quality upgrade for your LP12.
