Linn Exakt

Watch the videos to find out how Exakt technology delivers a breakthrough in audio performance:

Linn Exakt

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.

Traditional systems vs Exakt

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.

Linn Exakt

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.

Exakt Systems

Exakt technology takes our Klimax and Akurate systems to another level. It eliminates magnitude and phase distortion in the crossover, corrects for drive unit variance and enables Space Optimisation+, meaning whichever system you choose, it’s personalised for you.
