Acoustic tailoring

To offer the unique style and customisation possibilities of Linn Series 5, Linn  designers came up with a new way to finish the speakers that would not only allow you to create your own look, but also protect the drive units, while preserving the integrity of the performance.

Linn have  created a collection of Linn Fabrik coverings using specially designed, light and open weave patterns that will allow the music through, while offering a fantastic  wide choice of contemporary and classic colours and designs.

But the material itself is only half the story. No other speaker can offer such a variety of covering options without detrimentally affecting the sound. Linn Series 5 speakers use Linn Exakt technology to model the effects of each Linn Fabrik’s characteristics on the frequency and phase response of every drive unit.  Linn Exakt’s digital crossover eliminates any unwanted distorting effects to ensure that no matter which Linn Fabrik you choose, your speakers will produce the same breath-taking performance Linn designed  in their factory.

Why Not Create your own look

You can select  your Fabrik cover, top plate and stand to personalise your speakers. With so many colours and textiles to choose from, and designer collections like Timorous Beasties and Harris Tweed coming shortly, there’s a look to complement any interior.

And if you fancy a change? All Linn Fabrik covers, tops and stands are available separately so you can refresh the look as often as you like.


Linn Technology

Linn Space Optimisation+

This is truly amazing,   Linn’s Space Optimisation+ builds a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound that you hear.

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

Exakt

Our systems use Exakt technology to preserve the integrity of the original studio recording all the way to the speakers.

This truly revolutionary technology turns traditional hi-fi on its head, completely removing sources of noise and distortion that affect all other music systems. By keeping the music digital until the last possible stage, Exakt enables a whole host of performance-enhancing capabilities.

Integrated Exakt Module

To run each speaker fully Aktiv, with a dedicated digital crossover, volume control, digital-to-analogue converter, and amplifier for every drive unit, you might expect to need a load of additional boxes and cables.

That’s where Linn’s expertise in integrated speaker design comes in. 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 make the speaker fully Aktiv. 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.

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.

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.

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.

The 530 needed compact yet very long-throw, low-resonance units for use in the Isobarik bass system. The unique arrangement of tweeter and bass/mid driver on both models also 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.

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.

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 breath-taking performance we designed here in the factory.
