Coming very soon New Linn Majik Isobarik Speakers
A new chapter is due to be written in Linn loudspeaker design with the inspired re-invention of a classic
design. Featuring a unique isobaric bass system which produces rich, deep bass from a relatively compact cabinet,
Linn Majik Isobarik is an ingenious reconstruction of a much-loved loudspeaker.
Launched in 1976, the original Linn Isobarik loudspeaker featured twin bass drivers which worked together to
improve bass extension, a patented technique which went on to feature in Linn favourites such as Linn Sara and
The new Linn Majik Isobarik applies knowledge gained from the last 35 years of speaker development at Linn
and combines a complete redesign of Isobarik bass technology with the latest advances in high frequency
· Linn Majik Isobarik Technology
Linn Majik Isobarik features an 8” ported isobaric bass system which provides significant benefits:
· Very deep bass from a relatively compact enclosure.
By doubling the driving force (two motors), doubling the
moving mass (two cones and two voice coils), and
doubling the stiffness of the suspensions we can produce
the same deep bass extension using only half of the
enclosure volume required by a non-Isobarik design.
A reduction in distortion at bass frequencies.
All bass drive units suffer from non-symmetry; the force
required to push the cone forward is different to the force
required to pull the cone inward. By mounting two bass
drive units in opposite directions (face to face) we can
enforce symmetry and ensure a more linear response to
the input current.
· Omni-directional bass, making positioning of the
loudspeakers easier in any space.
By mounting the Isobarik system in the underside of the enclosure the
Linn Majik Isobarik delivers truly omni-directional bass. This
has significant benefits in reducing the deleterious effects
of loudspeaker and room interaction.
· More bass output for the same electrical input.
Firing the bass towards the floor increases the acoustic
loading of the bass system allowing more acoustic power
· 2K Driver Array
A more complete soundstage throughout the room
for better sound wherever you’re positioned.
The 2K driver array improves dispersion by significantly
· Playback Performance Options
The Linn Majik Isobarik can be driven:
passively (single-wire, multi-wire and multi-amp)
Isobarik Aktiv (bass Aktiv, mids and highs passive)
fully Aktiv (8 channels of amplification plus Aktiv cards)
What Linn Have to say by
Phil Budd,Linn Acoustic Designer, talks about the challenges of developing Majik Isobarik:
Our challenge at Linn from the outset was to produce a loudspeaker which retained the refined and articulate
character of our current loudspeakers but packed a powerful punch at the low end.
The key problem was dramatically improving bass extension without sacrificing performance or aesthetics.
We made some key design breakthroughs with the Linn Majik 109 (ported skoop) and Linn Majik 112 centre channel
(single bass driver design), but achieving similar improvements in bass extension with a floorstander was a
Our initial plans were to use an 8” drive unit applied in a conventional way, but as we progressed through
the development, we found that we could achieve greater results by returning to Isobarik principles.
The result is our reinvention of Isobarik: twin drivers placed face to face and down-firing beneath the cabinet
for maximum bass extension and performance.
We believe Linn Majik Isobarik is a speaker which will appeal to everyone, whatever their taste in music. It
maintains the unmistakeable musical character of a Linn loudspeaker but thanks to the Isobarik bass
system, it is also one hell of a party speaker.
