Default Linn LP12 Akurate Upgrade path

I have a Linn LP12 Akurate with Koetsu Redwood Signature. It is only six months old so has the new bearing. I like it’s detail, balance and dynamics. If I have a criticism it is the noise floor is higher than I would like. I am in the middle of a home renovation and can’t do all the upgrades, so need to pick one. The choices are the Radikal DC motor, Ekos SE tone arm, or the Keel upgrade. Anyone have experience with these and some thought?

Several years ago Art Dudley wrote a column in Stereophile describing his experience with various upgrades to his Linn LP12. I tried and failed to post a link to it, but it's worth searching out if you haven't read it.
