Linn of Scotland started with their LP12 turntable in the 1970's and showed the world that it is the source that is the most important component in your system. The worse the source, the worse the sound. Once the CD became the media of choice they introduce the Karik CD player  that set the standard for others to follow. By adding on their external DAC called the Numerik you had the best . . .until they introduced their Ikemi player. Not wanting to sit quietly Linn designed in 1999 what is considered one of the best CD players ever created --the Linn Sondek CD12. Now with the advent of digital streaming media Linn has done it again with their full line of DS and DSM Network Music Players.

Akurate Exaktbox

Intelligent digital crossover and DAC

Akurate Exaktbox is available in two versions: 10-channel for speakers up to 5-way and 6-channel for speakers up to 3-way. Both feature the same digital-to-analogue conversion (DAC) technology derived from Akurate DS. Simply choose the right model for your speakers.

 Linn Exakt Akubarik system *NEW*

Browse your digital music library, stream music and video online and hear movie soundtracks, all in exceptional detail. Akurate Exakt DSM connects to virtually any music or audio source in your home and plays it flawlessly.

Anything connected to the Akurate Exakt DSM is transmitted perfectly to the Exakt Akubarik speakers via Exakt Link, using a single digital cable. With multiple digital and analogue connections including HDMI, XLR, and an onboard phono stage for your turntable, we have everything covered; you can even Airplay from your phone or tablet.

Exakt Akubarik speakers combine their integrated Aktiv technology developed for Akubarik speakers with Exakt technology to put the source in the speaker.

The five channels in each speaker are fed by a single digital input using the Exakt Link output from Akurate Exakt DSM. The on-board digital crossover in each speaker delivers an independently controlled signal to each of the drive units, via independent volume controls, DACs and power amplifiers.

Exakt technology completely eliminates magnitude and phase distortion and corrects for drive unit variation.

Space Optimisation+ ensures your speakers are optimised for your unique listening environment.

Exakt Akubarik uses an Isobarik bass system, consisting of two bass drive units housed in the base of a beautifully curved and compact cabinet, letting you enjoy a depth of bass normally associated with much larger speakers. High and mid frequencies are served with stunning precision by Linn’s unique 3K driver array, also found in our Klimax speakers.

Available in a range of stunning finishes, Akubarik fits perfectly in every living space.

With on-board volume control, simply add Majik DS to a power amplifier, such as Majik 2100, and loudspeakers, such as Majik 140 floorstander or Majik 109 bookshelf, for a simple, compact system.  Your system can be expanded later to include a Majik-Iintegrated amplifier or Majik Kontrol pre-amplifier for further enhanced performance and functionality.

Enjoy the highest quality audio formats and hear your CD collection as never before as you experience breakthrough audio performance from our very latest digital stream player. 

A true specialist system yet deceptively compact, our best value Linn DS player to date combines all the highest quality Linn-engineered components to ensure no-compromise system performance, including a Linn DS player, high performance pre-amplifier, Chakra power amplification and our latest Dynamik power supply.


The heart of your home entertainment system, Majik DSM also has multiple digital and analogue input connections so you can enjoy improved audio from your TV, gaming, movie players and much can even add a turntable.

Any sources you connect to your DSM System via HDMI will sound better as they will benefit from the superior DAC and custom Linn up-sampling of the audio. Any video content on the HDMI signal will be passed through to the TV or output device connected via the HDMI out. Audio content will also be automatically passed through if the DSM is in Sleep mode.

With HDMI inputs, you can now play back SACD (Super Audio CD) and DVD-A (DVD Audio) discs by connecting the disc player to your DSM System. SACD content will be down-sampled to 176.4 K or 88.2 k and multi-channel audio down-mixed to stereo but this does allow high-quality playback of discs which cannot currently be ripped for streaming.

Signal paths have been reduced to a minimum by providing separate volume controls for analogue and digital sources. Analogue sources follow a pure analogue path through a conventional high-quality analogue volume control. Digital sources use a digital volume control that provides optimum performance over a wide range of volume settings thanks to its exceptionally low noise floor
