Linn Sondek LP12 45th Anniversary Party, July 26th 2018 at House of Linn in Manchester

28 July 2018
Linn Sondek LP12 45th Anniversary Party, July 26th 2018 at House of Linn in Manchester

In a world of streaming it is a sign of the times that we continue to celebrate and enjoy vinyl recordings especially with the iconic Linn Sondek LP12 Turntable, first manufactured in 1973 and now in its 45th year having continuously evolved with innovative state of the art engineering performance.





To mark the LP12 45th Anniversary, our party sold out as we opened the entire ground floor at House of Linn to welcome 26 guests to our large demonstration room through to the diner kitchen, and to the outside areas to take advantage of the very warm summer evening.

The evening was extremely relaxed and fun with plenty of great music and a ginormous birthday cake to cut and enjoy!





Our thanks to Slattery of Whitefield for making this custom chocolate fudge cake to our specification to represent a pile of vinyl records!





The Main demonstration room system streamed the LP12 to the Kitchen System so music was everywhere, as we hosted a lovely 45th LP12 anniversary party of music, food, refreshments and a special LP12 Birthday Cake!

We had a wonderful and entertaining party evening listening to vinyl recordings guests had brought along to play, discussing choices for the evening as well as the personal significance of the chosen records.





The Linn LP12 made every vinyl record we all listened to during the evening sound authentic, detailed and spectacular, with guests applauding from time to time at a particular choice of record and compelling musical realism.

Thank you to all who attended and a special thank you to Linn’s Brand Ambassador Katie Wilson, for superbly presenting and for helping us feel like guests at our own party!





Also, remember there is no better time to buy a new Linn component or a new Linn system and save 10% with our offer of Linn’s 2018 Summer Promotion.

Feel free to contact us for further information and a demonstration.

Kind regards

New Products: Urika II & Lingo

26 January 2018
<b>New Products: Urika II & Lingo<b/>

New Products: Urika II & New Lingo

Introducing two compelling new products for your LP12

Long live vinyl: the 45 year LP12 revolution still thrills LP12 owners

This ground-breaking turntable is now in its 45th anniversary year and Linn has improved it again.

Introducing two compelling and innovative new turntable products and the perfect reason to upgrade that will transform your LP12 deck.

Urika II: the best Moving Coil Phono Stage made even better

The new Urika II is a breakthrough in phono stage design Linn are still extracting all that wonderful analogue information, but now with cutting-edge digital signal processing technology to implement the RIAA curve in the digital domain in a way that’s uniquely improved. This means lower distortion. Lower noise. And, most importantly, more music. Transported via Exakt Link, the musical information that Urika II delivers is perfectly preserved until the moment it reaches your ears, delivering a musical experience like never before.

Urika II can be optimised to work with preferred cartridge load values. Simply select from Linn’s list of popular cartridges or enter your own. All completely optimised for the Exakt listening position Urika II elevates the performance of Klimax LP12 to another level.

Learning the Lingo: New Lingo

The Lingo power supply has had a major upgrade too, using technology developed for Linn’s extraordinary Radikal power supply. New Lingo has a motor speed management system on-board and uses digital processing technology to make the platter spin more accurately and more consistently. That’s crucial for music, of course: even the slightest speed variation affects the pitch, and a turntable that isn’t accurate is like a musical instrument that hasn’t been tuned properly. The new model is neater, more compact and cleverer than ever, and as with Urika II it delivers more music.

Hear the difference new Lingo will make to the Majik and Akurate LP12.

In addition, to celebrate 45 years of the Sondek LP12 revolution Linn have two great tempting upgrade offers:

Fluted Plinth

The striking design harks back to the very first Sondek LP12 and comes in all standard finishes and is available as a strictly limited edition when purchased with either Urika II or Lingo.

In addition, A Special Upgrade Promotion offering 15% off an additional LP12 upgrade with either Urika II or Lingo purchase.

The new products are priced as follows (inc. tax)

Urika II - £2,750

Lingo - £1,450

Urika II and Radikal package

(Standard chassis) - £5,140

Urika II and Radikal package

(Machined chassis) - £7,230

Fluted plinth - £628

Existing Versions:

The existing Urika will be available for the foreseeable future alongside Urika II, and the previous Lingo will be replaced by the new version with immediate effect.

New Exakt Filter Featuring Extended Drive Unit Modelling: Klimax Exakt 350 loudspeaker

16 August 2017
<b/>New Exakt Filter Featuring Extended Drive Unit Modelling: Klimax Exakt 350 loudspeaker<b/>



The new Exakt Filter software upgrade featuring extended drive unit modelling delivers the best ever performing Klimax Exakt 350 loudspeakers we have heard.

Simply select the new Exakt 350 Filter using Linn Konfig and upgrade your Klimax Exakt 350 to experience the improvements. Konfig also now supports the ability to user-select Exakt Filters so that you can easily compare the difference.

Music and sound take on a new level of realism with far greater resolution, immediacy, transparency, ease and scale and a fullness of musical instrument sound previously unheard through our Klimax Exakt 350 system.

The Exakt 350s absolutely disappear producing a three-dimensional, seamless sound stage with what appears to be a "precise" width, depth and height. There is no sense at all of the 350 loudspeakers in the room.

This Exakt filter update is like getting a brand new - and a far better pair of Klimax Exakt 350s - for free!

Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM

22 September 2016
<b>Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM<b/>

Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM

Katalyst DAC Architecture is now featured in both the Klimax DS and Klimax DSM, raising the best network music players available to an even higher level of performance.

Linn’s new Katalyst DAC Architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever.

Katalyst takes an unprecedented level of control over the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal’s creation; offering improved Data Optimisation, superior Master Clock, independent Power Supplies, a new ultra-low distortion Output Driver and crucially, for the first time, a high-stability input Reference Level.

The latter is vitally important because, at the point of creation, the analogue audio signal is particularly vulnerable even to miniscule variations in the Reference Level, which cause irreversible damage.

Katalyst’s high-stability input Reference Level eliminates variations during analogue signal creation, giving you a deeper insight into your music.

Linn’s 4th Generation DAC Architecture:

1991 — Numerik

1998 — CD12

2007 — Klimax DS

2016 — Katalyst

How Katalyst improves on previous designs:

Katalyst delivers unparalleled precision thanks to five key areas of improvement:

1. Reference Level:

Now completely isolated from noise to produce a high-stability Reference Level voltage that generates the signal’s amplitude without variation.

2. Independent Power Supplies:

Independent, isolated power supplies are tailored for each process, so feedback from one process cannot influence the performance of another, resulting in far lower distortion.

3. Data Optimisation:

Linn-designed data optimisation stage that prepares the digital signal for conversion with greater accuracy, minimising errors right at the start of the process.

4. Master Clock:

A single high precision clock with its own independent power supply ensures greater timing accuracy throughout.

5. Output Driver:

The new ultra-low distortion analogue output driver prepares the delicate analogue signal for transmission out of the device, making it less susceptible to noise and degradation.

Upgrade to Katalyst:



If you already own a Klimax DS or Klimax DSM, you can take advantage of the biggest performance upgrade Linn ever released by adding Katalyst to your player.



Don’t just take our word for it - hear it for yourself.

In stereo mode, a single Klimax Exaktbox can upgrade a pair of 3-way speakers, such as Linn Keltiks. As with the rest of the Klimax range, Klimax Exaktbox is housed in a machined-from-solid aluminium chassis. The audio circuit board and power supply are enclosed in separate "rooms" within the chassis, screening and protecting them from vibration, thermal variations and electromagnetic interference to preserve the integrity of the music signal. Klimax Exaktbox is available in anodised silver or black.

AKURATE EXAKT AKUDORIK SYSTEM

Akurate Exakt Akudorik System, featuring Akurate Exakt DSM and new Exakt Akudorik loudspeakers.

Combining ground-breaking Exakt performance with compact styling, thanks to an innovative new stand design that integrates Exakt technology, Exakt Akudorik loudspeakers complement any room.

Easily outperforming larger and more expensive conventional systems, the new Linn Akurate Exakt system offers exceptional performance from the latest audio technology at a more accessible price point.

Of course, this system can perform even better with a Klimax Exakt DSM source.

EXAKT AKUDORIK LOUDSPEAKER

Innovative, and a stunning work of engineering beauty, Exakt Akudorik is the first speaker of its kind, integrating Exakt technology into a suspension-mounted module housed within the stand.

The stand module contains the Exakt engine and four channels of Chakra 100W power amplification and is suspended to minimise vibration and microphony. The fins on the module passively cool the amplifiers without the need for noisy cooling fans. Available in a wide range of stunning finishes, Exakt Akudorik fits perfectly in every living space. The stand is fed a digital signal using an Exakt Link connection from the Akurate Exakt DSM. With Exakt technology on- board, the system offers all of the key benefits of a Linn Exakt system: elimination of phase and magnitude distortion; correction for drive unit variation; and optimisation for the listening room.

A specially designed, recessed 8-way connector passes the Exakt-processed signals through to the speaker drive units from the amplifiers.

This connection, made between the top of the stand and the bottom of the loudspeaker, is completely hidden, with no cables visible, keeping the aesthetics clean and precise.

EXAKT DORIK STAND FOR OTHER LINN LOUDSPEAKERS

Exakt Dorik, the innovative stand developed for the stunning new Exakt Akudorik loudspeaker, is a fantastic upgrade for Linn bookshelf loudspeakers that takes the existing system to Exakt-level performance.

The new stand upgrades a Linn bookshelf speaker, such as an Akurate 212, to Exakt as it houses all of the electronics and amplification required to drive the loudspeaker actively using Exakt technology within an innovative stand design.

Exakt Dorik stands currently support Linn’s Akurate 212 loudspeakers and are supplied with a pair of 8-way speaker cables that connect the stand to your speakers.

Support for other speakers will be added in the coming months.

Linn Exakt: The Source is in the Speaker

17 October 2013

Introducing Exakt - a revolution in hi-fi, which has turned the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software-upgradeable product.

How Exakt works



What Exakt can do




Exakt, a ground-breaking, new Linn technology builds on Linn DS to extend the lossless digital path all the way to the speaker, keeping the signal digital and only converting to analogue at the last possible stage to ensure absolute accuracy of data, guaranteed low latency, extremely low jitter, and extreme precision synchronisation between speakers.

Introducing the new Klimax Exakt System

Linn has launched the Klimax Exakt System, comprising Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 Speakers.

Exakt combines and improves on three key Linn innovations – Source-First, Aktiv, and DS – to radically improve the performance of the music system.

Exakt is the most direct connection ever made between the listener and the artist. It sends digital data to an Exakt speaker losslessly to eliminate sources of noise, distortion and interference inherent in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain, meaning that a Studio Master file, or any other music source, is transmitted perfectly to the speaker.

Inside the Exakt Speaker is a digital platform that enables a whole new range of audio performance enhancing capabilities in design, manufacture and in the customer’s home.

Eliminates in Design In design, the intelligence built into Linn Exakt phase corrects every signal, eliminating the phase and magnitude distortion introduced by analogue crossovers, ensuring 100% accuracy in every single crossover.

Corrects at Manufacture In manufacture, physical variation between parts is inherent in even the most accurate processes, however Exakt measures and corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units, meaning every system that leaves the factory is guaranteed to perform exactly to its specification, guaranteeing a perfect speaker.

Optimised at Home In the home, the Exakt system is optimised to suit every individual’s room using powerful new Linn software and House of Linn's specialist expertise. The customer now has the flexibility to choose where they would like their system positioned to fit around their lives without compromising the sound they hear.

As with all Linn DSM players, all sources can be connected for improved performance. Even vinyl sounds better – there’s no better way to preserve the signal from an LP12 than Exakt. New ADC technology converts the delicate LP12 to digital and sends it losslessly to the speaker, better protecting the signal than any other solution. The Linn Klimax Exakt system is available now at House of Linn, priced at £50,000

Klimax Exakt System

Exakt Systems are uniquely built by Linn and available for both new and existing customers. The following systems are available:

Klimax Exakt System, comprising Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 speakers for new customers

Exakt upgrades for Klimax 350 and Artikulat owners, comprising a Klimax Exakt DSM, replacement 3K arrays and new Klimax Exakt modules for the customer’s speakers
