Does the addition of Exakt Link to Majik DS and Majik DSM mean Linn is launching Exakt speakers or an Exaktbox at Majik level?
No, we’re not currently developing a Majik level Exakt speaker but we do envisage Exakt rolling out eventually at more performance levels, and so we’re including Exakt Link connections on Klimax, Akurate and Majik products to pave the way for future upgrades and to protect your customers’ investment in Linn.

In what ways have Linn DS players been improved?
All DS and DSM players at Klimax, Akurate and Majik level, have a new clocking architecture and improved audio circuitry layouts. This has led to a reduction in the number of components, shorter signal paths and reduced jitter, resulting in improved audio performance. Exakt Link connections have also been added, to enable future Exakt upgrades.

Is Linn launching a new Klimax DSM and Akurate DSM now as well?

No, these already have the new clocking architecture and Exakt Link connections, both of which were added to the versions launched last year.

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 http://vimeo.com/search?q=akubarik

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 …
