Upgrading your Linn Product.

In a world of planned obsolescence, we do the opposite. Linn products are designed to be easily and continuously upgraded. So your investment can last a lifetime.

Source first.

The more musical information you retrieve from the source, the better the sound. So one of our founding princples was ‘source first’, meaning that if you’re looking to upgrade your system, start with the source.

Speakers and Amps

Linn’s speakers and amps are designed such that the groundbreaking new technologies found in our newest and best products can often be added to their forebearers, extending the lifetime of your system.

Speaker upgrades

Upgrading your Linn speakers to Aktiv is a great way to improve performance and also provides a significant step on the way to the ultimate upgrade - Exakt.

Hear the difference our revolutionary Exakt technology can make to your current Linn speakers by turning them into the ultimate intelligent loudspeaker. If you already own Exakt Akudorik or Akubarik, you can upgrade each channel’s DAC to our high-performance Katalyst DAC Architecture, offering an even deeper insight into your music. If you own Klimax 350 integrated loudspeakers, you can go even further, and upgrade to our reference Organik DAC architecture – delivering our most natural sound ever.
