Aside from enjoying a wee dram while listening to The White Album, we didn’t think there was a better way to combine our love of whisky and high-end audio gear. Linn, on the other hand, decided to celebrate its 40th birthday by teaming up with fellow highland brand Highland Park to produce something really special. The pair are recreating Linn’s flagship Sondek LP12 turntable, but on a wooden plinth crafted from some of the distiller’s solid oak scotch whisky casks. Naturally, only 40 of the units will be produced, each one setting you back £25,000 ($40,000) — but hey, at least you get a 40-year-old bottle of Highland Park (worth £900) thrown in for good measure.
