Linn’s Akurate Kontrol Pre-Amplifier

Designed from the ground up as a dedicated stereo pre-amplifier,Linn Akurate Kontrol features ultra-low distortion circuitry & uses galvanic isolation to effectively ‘disconnect’ unused sources to further reduce crosstalk, interference & noise.

With up to seven analogue inputs available & high quality XLR & RCA connectors used, Linn Akurate Kontrol has the flexibility to match its performance. The high quality integrated phono stage can be configured as Moving Coil (MC) or Moving Magnet (MM), or even disabled to create an additional line level input.

A dedicated Class A low-distortion headphone amplifier supplies the headphone output on the front panel, and the high quality 3.5 mm Aux input alongside it features auto source-switching for instantly connecting portable music players.

Housed in a stunning new enclosure and powered by our very latest Dynamik Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) technology, Linn Akurate Kontrol is an extremely low noise and virtually distortion-free pre-amplifier.

Partner Linn’s first network-enabled pre-amplifier with Akurate DS for exceptional performance and control, and experience for yourself why the Linn Akurate System is the true performance choice for music lovers.
