Delivering a breakthrough in audio performance. Keeping the signal digital, all the way to the speaker.

How it works

What it can do

A revolution in the design and manufacture of music systems

Exakt technology has enabled Linn to completely revolutionise the design and manufacture of music systems. Extending the lossless digital signal path further than ever before, Exakt eliminates sources of noise and distortion that exist in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain.

Exakt turns the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software-upgradeable product. This enables a wide range of performance and personalisation-enhancing capabilities, guaranteeing a performance that eliminates distortion, corrects for variation and is personalised for your home.

Eliminates

In Design

Exakt eliminates the magnitude and phase distortion inherent in traditional crossovers and drive units. This has enabled Linn to produce the first truly linear-phase loudspeakers, delivering a breakthrough in audio performance. By combining a lossless digital crossover with sophisticated modelling of the characteristics of every drive unit in the speaker, Exakt is able to deliver every note perfectly in phase and free from distortion, giving you a far more faithful reproduction of the music as it was recorded.

Corrects

In Manufacture

Physical variation between parts exists in even the most accurate manufacturing processes. Exakt corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units meaning that every speaker is tailored to perform exactly as intended.

Optimised for your home

All Linn systems feature Space Optimisation technology, which optimises performance based on your particular speakers, their placement and the characteristics of your room.

Exakt enables an enhanced version: Space Optimisation+. By modelling the unique characteristics of each individual drive unit in your speakers, performance can be optimised with even greater precision.

Upgrading to Exakt

There are two ways to upgrade your speakers to Exakt: integrated or separate. Exakt modules can be used to upgrade to integrated Aktiv speakers, while Exaktbox can be added to your current separates.

Integrated Aktiv

Klimax / Artikulat 350A

Exakt 350 modules will convert your existing integrated Aktiv 350s into Klimax Exakt 350s. An upgrade package is available that includes the modules, new measured 3K arrays and a Klimax Exakt DSM.

Klimax / Artikulat 350 Passive

Passive 350s can also be upgraded to Klimax Exakt 350s using integrated Exakt modules. An upgrade package is available that includes the modules, new measured 3K arrays and a Klimax Exakt DSM.

Akubarik

Exakt Akubarik modules will convert your existing integrated Aktiv Akubariks into Exakt Akubariks. An upgrade package is available that includes the modules, new measured 3K arrays (where needed) and an Akurate Exakt DSM.

Akurate 212

Passive Akurate 212 speakers can be upgraded to Exakt without the need for separate amplifiers, using the integrated Exakt Dorik stand.

Separates

Komri

A pair of Klimax Exaktboxes will upgrade your externally Aktiv Komris to Exakt. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

An upgrade package is available that includes two Klimax Exaktboxes and a Klimax Exakt DSM.

Klimax / Artikulat 350 Passive

You can convert passive 350s to externally Aktiv Exakt using a pair of Klimax Exaktboxes. This provides the choice to specify separate Klimax amplifiers for ultimate performance, as an alternative to using integrated Exakt 350 modules.

An upgrade package is available that includes two Klimax Exaktboxes and a Klimax Exakt DSM.

Akubarik Passive

One Akurate Exaktbox has the ten channels required to upgrade Akubarik Passive to Exakt. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Alternatively, for ultimate performance, specify a pair of Klimax Exaktboxes.

Akurate 242

One Akurate Exaktbox has the ten channels required to upgrade Akurate 242 to Exakt. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Alternatively, for ultimate performance, specify a pair of Klimax Exaktboxes.

Akurate 212

As an alternative to using the integrated Exakt Dorik stand, an Akurate Exaktbox can upgrade a system with Akurate 212 speakers and separate power amps.

Keltik

There are three levels of Exaktbox performance available for Keltik, all of which offer a massive improvement over Klimax or LK analogue Tuneboxes.

Two Klimax Exaktboxes (one per speaker) represent the ultimate upgrade, while a single Klimax Exaktbox can be used in stereo mode to connect a pair of Keltiks.

Alternatively, Keltiks can be upgraded using one Akurate Exaktbox.

Espek

One Akurate Exaktbox has all the channels required to upgrade Espek to Exakt. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Alternatively, for ultimate performance, specify a single Klimax Exaktbox.

Majik Isobarik

Majik Isobarik can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Majik 140

Majik 140 can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Ninka

Ninka can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Keilidh

Keilidh can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Kaber

Kaber can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Majik 109

Majik 109 can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Katan

Katan can be upgraded to Exakt using an Akurate Exaktbox. If the system is currently passive, you will also need the necessary channels of amplification.

Non-Linn Speakers

Exakt is an open technology that enables the optimisation of other manufacturers’ speakers using Linn’s Exaktbox range

Kudos Titan 808

Linn and Kudos worked together during the development of the new Titan 808 loudspeaker, with the Kudos-designed crossover actually developed using Linn’s Exaktbox to get the best from the speaker. For best performance, drive the Titan 808 from a Klimax Exakt DSM, a pair of Klimax Exaktboxes and Klimax amplification.

Kudos Super 20

The partnership between Linn and Kudos led to the development of Exakt crossovers for the Super 20, using an Exaktbox to bypass the standard passive crossover in the speaker.

Kudos Super 10

The partnership between Linn and Kudos led to the development of Exakt crossovers for the Super 10, using an Exaktbox to bypass the standard passive crossover in the speaker.

Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus™

The incredible performance of Exakt is available to owners of B&W’s Nautilus loudspeakers by replacing the standard B&W active crossovers with Exaktbox and adding an Exakt DSM.

Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond

The incredible performance of Exakt is available to owners of B&W’s 802 Diamond. This upgrade bypasses the original passive crossover and enables a Linn Exaktbox to feed every drive unit its own signal, via additional amplifiers, dramatically improving performance. A specially designed conversion kit fixed to the back of the speaker provides all the connections required to drive the speakers actively.

Other speakers

The flexible, software-upgradeable nature of Exaktbox, enables us to plan support for more speakers by Linn, and other manufacturers.
