minor course correction, lest this thread go further into a ditch.  the Basik is/was an non-suspended, original Linn design.  the LP-12, was, AFAIK, a copy of the Ariston, which was of course an evolution of the original AR 3-point suspended desig... 
Best Turntable for the Price - Linn Basik
recently bought a Basik with Basik Plus arm as an extra TT and pandemic project.  also have a modded Systemdek IIX with Akito2 so plan to swap arms and carts for fun and variety.  main TT is currently a SL-1500c.  FWIW I've owned more than a dozen... 
Bearing oil for Linn Basik?
Singer sewing machine oil

Looking for good quality vintage speakers
totally go vintage, you're young and have many years to develop the disease of over-intellectualizing "audiophilia nervosa" and/or "mmtb syndrome." just have fun for now. i had a PMA-777 under my arm when i came home from the navy back in the 80s....
