Exakt technology inside Akubarik offers more music lovers the chance to experience sound at its best.

Linn has extended its ground-breaking Exakt platform into its Akurate range. The highly acclaimed Akubarik loudspeaker is the latest product to benefit from this revolutionary new technology which marks the dawn of a new era of personalisation in the home.

Exakt eliminates the sources of loss inherent in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain by transfering the lossless digital signal all the way to the speaker. This means that a Studio Master file, or any other music source, is now transmitted perfectly into the speaker.

Exakt delivers the most direct connection ever made between the listener and the artist, and turns the speaker into a intelligent, connected, software upgradeable product. Using the groundbreaking Exakt technology launched in Linn’s flagship Klimax Exakt System in September last year, the Akurate Exakt System comprises an Akurate Exakt DSM and Exakt Akubarik loudspeakers.

Inside Exakt loudspeakers is a digital platform that enables a whole new range of performance-enhancing capabilities and the ability for a us to optimise the system in your home. This ensures the best possible sound no matter the unique characteristics of your room or preferred speaker positioning.

Eliminates Magnitude and Phase Distortion in Design.

Exakt eliminates magnitude and phase distortion that is inherent in traditional passive crossovers. So what you hear is a more faithful reproduction of the music as it was recorded.

Corrects for the Differences Between Drive Units at Manufacture.

All speaker drive units have their own unique characteristics. Exakt measures and corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units, meaning every system that leaves the factory performs exactly to the designers specification.

Optimises Performance in your Home.

Every room is different and this can have a significant effect on what you hear. Exakt enables us to optimise performance for your unique room. This personalisation is based on the room’s dimensions, furnishings and your preferred speaker location. Now you can enjoy the best possible sound no matter your room’s size, furnishings and speaker placement.

Exakt Link.

In order to deliver the digital signal losslessly to the speaker, Linn developed a new protocol — Exakt Link. Exakt Link achieves what no existing standard could: accuracy of data transmission with the ability to losslessly transmit 8 channels of 24-bit 192 kHz Studio Master; exceptionally low jitter to ensure perfect musical timing; and extreme precision synchronisation between speakers.

Hear Vinyl at its Best Through Exakt.

Up to thirteen sources can be connected to the system via the Akurate Exakt DSM with inputs including HDMI, Toslink, S/PDIF, XLR and RCA phono available, and as with all Linn DSM players, any source will enjoy 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 analogue signal digitally and sends it losslessly to the speaker. The remaining specification of Exakt Akubarik retains the exceptional acoustic and mechanical qualities of the original Aktiv product including the two 8” glass fibre composite cones mounted face-to-face in the isobaric system on the underside of the enclosure. By doubling the driving force, the moving mass and the stiffness of the suspension (i.e. two cones, two motors and two voice coils), Exakt Akubarik delivers the rich, deep and detailed bass extension normally reserved for much larger speakers, and all from a relatively slim, stylish and compact cabinet. All of the other drivers of the Exakt Akubarik are mounted on the front baffle including Linn’s unique, patented 3K driver array technology featuring a polyurethane 3” mid-range dome, 1” dome tweeter and a ½” silk super-tweeter, each placed in a very rigid, machined die cast aluminium chassis for optimum positioning to achieve wider dispersion, precise high frequency response and single-point source accuracy. Upper bass is handled by a 6” doped paper driver mounted in its own sealed enclosure designed to deliver better transients with less distortion. The six-channel amp module houses the Exakt capability alongside Akurate quality DACs and Linn’s patented Chakra ‘silent power’ amplification, all mounted within a special and effective passive cooling chimney which draws the warm air up and out of the electronics without requiring a fan. Great care has also been taken to isolate the electronics from the cabinet to minimise microphony. Exakt Akubarik’s gently curved cabinet is practical, beautiful and living-room-friendly. The cabinet is a composite construction of steam moulded, layers of wood veneer and MDF. Additional meticulously placed internal bracing creates an exceptionally rigid and acoustically inert structure and a very stable mounting for the drive units. Finished by hand, Exakt Akubarik is available in a range of stunning finishes, including six high-grade real wood veneers in standard or high gloss options. A stunning range of 200 bespoke, high gloss colour finishes are also available. Exakt Akubarik can be further personalised through the choice of polished chrome or black finishes for the chassis of the 3K array.
