Power and intelligence built-in

Linn's innovative integrated speakers have power and intelligence built-in. A specially designed module, suspension-mounted on the back of each speaker, houses the powerful amps and Exakt electronics that optimise performance. Now you don't need lots of hi-fi separates to make great sound.

Perfect streaming to your speakers

Featuring Linn's streaming technology and a range of inputs to connect anything in your living room, every musical performance is perfectly transmitted to the speakers using Linn's Exakt Link lossless connection.

Space Optimisation

Using sophisticated acoustic modelling, Space Optimisation builds a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear.

By removing the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment, it reveals the true sound of the music. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.

Exakt

Until now, no speaker system has ever been able to synchronise all the elements that make up every note, including all the harmonics. Exakt ensures the perfect time alignment of every part of every note, so now you can enjoy the same sound that was recorded by the artist.

Integrated Exakt Modules

Each speaker has a module suspension-mounted on the back to acoustically isolate it from the cabinet. Packed inside are all the Exakt electronics and powerful amps needed to deliver the natural, effortless sound. Cooling is performed passively without any noisy fans, via the aluminium heat sink hidden behind the Linn Fabrik. Providing power and precision without any extra boxes, it’s our neatest integrated speaker design to date.

Integrated Exakt Modules

Each speaker has a dedicated digital crossover, volume control, digital-to-analogue converter and amplifier for every drive unit. So where are all the extra boxes and cables? That’s where Linn’s expertise in integrated speaker design comes in.

Precisely Crafted Cabinets

For Series 5, we used a layered composite of 3 mm sheets. Using multiple thin layers actually increases the tensile strength and therefore rigidity of the material, while still preserving its acoustically dead properties. Combined with the braced construction, this results in a cabinet that doesn’t add unwanted vibrations and doesn’t ring, but does give the drive units an incredibly stable platform to work from.

Precisely Crafted Cabinets

The foundation of any good speaker design is an enclosure that lets the drive units work with maximum efficiency, without colouring the sound.

Custom-Designed Drive Units

The unique arrangement of tweeter and bass/mid driver on both models required customised drive units. The bass/mid driver uses a unique doped, dual-layer, sliced cone design and an anti-resonant chamber on the back of the high quality tweeter improves high frequency performance when used in conjunction with the familiar Linn ‘skoop’, producing outstanding dispersion characteristics.

Custom-Designed Drive Units

The ambitious design of Series 5 led to a unique set of requirements for the drive units that couldn’t be met by any existing specification.

Linn Fabrik

Linn's unique Exakt technology models the effects of each Fabrik’s characteristics on the frequency and phase response of every drive unit in the speakers. Exakt's digital crossover eliminates any unwanted distorting effects to ensure that no matter which Fabrik you choose, your speakers will produce the same breathtaking performance we designed here in the factory.

Linn Fabrik

To offer the unique style and customisation possibilities of Series 5, without affecting the performance, we came up with a new way to finish speakers — Linn Fabrik.
