You can now book to have your system installed by us for a fixed price of 500 Sek within the Gothenburg area.

We will update the software to your LINN DS and install your room measurements, speaker type and furnishings into the software. This enables us to optimize the audio performance for just your room, just your system and for exactly the position you want your speakers to be placed. This is often not the same as the optimal audio position but LINN SPACE compensates so you will still get great audio performance even with practicable placement.

Watch the video and learn more about SPACE.

Please note that terms apply and though we are happy to install out with the Gothenburg area there will be some extra time and travel charges. Please call me for further information.

SPACE ... the final frontier?


Several years ago I took a number of visitors to the LINN factory, like I have done many enjoyable times in my time as an independent LINN retailer. On this occasion however, I heard about something I hadn't even thought could be possible, something not physically possible so I didn't even have it on my wish list. That's what is so fun with LINN, they are thinking up and tend to achieve ridiculous solutions, you thought were impossible.

After an always intriguing tour of the factory floor with several personal accounts of LINN's unique development and manufacturing we then enjoyed a curry with Gilad Teifenbrun, the managing director and Son of Ivor Teifenbrun (the founder) before visiting the demonstration rooms. This was pre 'The Linn Home' but nonetheless a great experience with a top of the line Akurate 5:1 cinema system in one dem room and an external Aktiv Klimax 350 system /with Klimax Twins) in the other.

After the compulsory ''best I have ever heard'' experience', which I am now accustomed to when I visit LINN, we sat down with a few LINN Engineers whom had been brought down to answer any questions we had.

Questions went back and forth and as always my customers were asking about the future and any exciting development information available. Clues were given which later became obvious after product releases but one very strong comment came up ... I'll call it a commitment, from LINN!

LINN had a goal that I had heard before but now sounded more like something actually achievable', a milestone they were looking for, rather than just some futuristic dream. It was a 'real' goal and from experience I could tell they meant business ... this would become reality.

''We would like to make speakers able to be placed anywhere in the room and still sound great''. 

Comparatively recently, with LINN Exakt, we for the first time had this delivered. In my own showroom I have LINN speakers, large freestanding Exakt Akubarik, placed just a few centimeters from the back wall and they sound amazing. Prior to the install, I was extremely skeptical but hey this is a 280,000 Sek super system and the reference Klimax version is almost double the price and LINN don't go backwards; everything they release is better than the last at the same performance level.

So now it's 2015 and LINN have just had another conference so what have the amazing team at LINN on offer this year?

Well, what if you could do the same magic with any speaker from any manufacturer? What if the Exakt software could, with a host of new variables with respect to your listening room be improved? What if you could use not only any speaker from any brand but any pre amplifier and amplifier from any brand? Perhaps you wouldn't even need an aktiv system to enjoy these benefits? Maybe it's not even an Exakt system or software we are discussing here? 

LINN are introducing SPACE, the system that allows you to optimise performance for just your room, with just your furnishings, with just your walls and even if you have another brand amplifier and speakers. Your speakers can now be placed to suit the aesthetics and practicality of how you use your room and still you will get amazing performance, cleaner and better 'tune-dem' performance than you had prior to SPACE.

So what is this amazing SPACE product and how much does it cost? Well in fact if you already own LINN DS (digital streaming product), you already have all you need :)


That's correct! Your LINN DS, if you own one, or the one you will buy shortly from Me, suddenly does a whole lot more and makes your entire system more flexible and crucially with better performance than ever before.

Access even more sophisticated room optimisation

Development of our optimisation technology has continued since the launch of Exakt in 2013 and, taking on board your vital feedback, resulted in Space Optimisation+ technology with new and more advanced features now available through Konfig:
  • Even more sophisticated acoustic modelling based on the construction type of the room
  • Optimisation based on room features such as doors and windows
  • A new, easy-to-follow layout including a bespoke room diagram
  • The ability to save, name and reload room settings previously configured
Available to download now, Linn Konfig gives you even more control of the optimisation process and makes it even easier to deliver this unique personalised service to your customers.


Exakt support for B&W 802

Exakt support is now available for Bowers and Wilkins 802 - the speaker you've all been waiting for!

Owners of these loudspeakers cab now experience ground-breaking performance improvement from a Linn Exaktbox on their existing system.

Support for all loudspeakers

Space Optimisation is now available for the loudspeakers you've told us are most popular with your customers, whether made by Linn or another manufacturer.

Put Linn DS at the heart of any system and you can optimise performance for loudspeakers from all manufacturers.

Now you can enjoy the upgrade of your own speakers with  revolutionary Space Optimisation technology.
