Gothenburgs NEWEST HiFi manufacturer ... yes we made it!

So how good can a product this tiny actually be ... I'm just gonna say there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that it is seriously high end and the response from early-listeners has been awesome! Be the judge and listen to it by booking an appointment at Linnegatan 5. email:

- Networked device with UpNp playback with up to 24 bit 192 playback (Wirelessly controlled from any UpNp iPad/tablet app)
- Airplay (play music wirelessly from iPad, iPhone iTouch)
- Bluetooth (play music from any Bluetooth device)
- IR (can be used with IR control)
- Digital in (connect your TV. We connect multiple HDMi devices to the TV then a single digital out to the player thus keeping cables tidy, fewer inputs to select through and of course the audio never leaves the digital domain)
- The chassis is machined from a single nougat of solid aluminum. This technique gives perfect shielding, rigidity, tolerances and of course looks and feel. This is the ultimate solution and we are using it!

- DSP with 4* digital out. What is DSP? Well to keep things simple it's processing capable of digital filtration and effects. Each output can have filter setting so you you eliminate lossy and noisy  analogue filters in your speakers by simply not using them. The player supports up to 4 way speakers and we have chosen to work with the amazing Maestro-50 2-channel digital amplifier (of the same form of a beautiful minimalist set-up).
Of course you can program the outputs however you want so you could single-amp, bi-amp, trip-amp, quad-amp or go fully active with your speakers. You could use it for eight full range speakers for a shop fit for example! The filters also help with painful room acoustics and can even correct for differences in manufacturing. FUN!

So this is a player supporting anything you want to do with digital music, it's a pre-amp in the digital domain and supports direct connection of up to 4 stereo power amps. If you want to add more .. we can fix that!

Here are a few pictures from the design and testing ... the finished product is now fully anodized in black with our logo laser-etched and the proud label ''Made in Gothenburg''.

LINN have great new features with the new HDMI 2.0 board

With 4K content now available across a range of services, customers can now get great sound to match the high resolution of their screens.
From today every Klimax DSM, Klimax Exakt DSM, Akurate DSM, Akurate Exakt DSM and Majik DSM will ship with our new HDMI 2.0 board, offering full 4K support.

This HDMI board will also support HDR for better dynamic colour range, CEC for interoperability, and ARC to return audio from the television to the DSM.

My first impression of LINN's NEW Akubarik's

Firstly I am all in favour of compact systems so for me it's a great advantage that they are fully active. Technical information you can get from the designer on the following video link

I can pick a few points about the design. I don't like blue lights ... I'd hoped it would be smaller to fit more of my customers that have smaller rooms and apartments with neighbours. But actualythey look great, very tidy indeed. A good start and very interesting but how do they perform?

The obvious reference systems are Akurate 242 Aktiv with LINN Akurate amps or Klimax 350A's reference speakers.

Straight off the Akurate 242's can't compete on the bottom end. The Akubariks deliver controlled base no matter the volume. Whether the 3k array performs better than on aktive 242, I don't know but it's probably quite similar. It is very good. It's all very good and well balanced. At no point did I experience any issues with frequencies …
