Featuring Linn’s new and revolutionary Space Optimisation technology, every Linn DS player has the power to optimise the performance of your music system – in any room, with any speakers.

Space Optimisation will remove the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment, meaning you can design your home the way you want to and experience the true musical performance, optimised for you.

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:

  • Optimisation based on room features such as doors and windows
  • A new, easy-to-follow layout including a bespoke room diagram

What is LINN DS?

LINN DS (digital streaming) is a source product with no moving parts (no background noise) that can in principle play any digital file whether it be from a hard disk, a remote server or even cloud based music for example Spotify. LINN DS can play almost every format including the best format available for purchase today - 24 Bit Studio Master. 192 Khz.

LINN DS plays music better than any CD player from any brand, and better than any other digital player. Most importantly, we can prove it!

The reference LINN KLIMAX DS , from which all LINN are developed from, is simply the worlds finest digital player!

LINN recently released a second upgrade to the first version of KLIMAX DS, which was launched in 2007, long before the competition had even considered a solution out with the conventional CD player. LINN were the first to sell 24 Bit Studio Master on line and this year received recognition for this step in advancing music quality by winning UK Record Label of the Year!

LINN DS provides instant access to your entire music collection through touch screen controls such as ipad, iphone or android devices, select rooms, music, volume and even control other devices in your LINN system such as CD or pre-amplifier. You can swap input on your pre-amplifier to Vinyl and distribute the music from your vinyl player to other rooms!

LINN DS can be used as a multi room solution which can play music simultaneously to every room, separate music to each rooms or a any combination.

Question: Why not just use a PC and a DAC

Firstly PC/MAC based media players are not High Fidelity products, add to that the background electrical noise inherent with a computer and you are off to a bad start.

Music is simply Timing and Notes. LINN DS \pulls the information from source file unlike the DAC alternative where a PC pushes using its own clock and then the information is re/clocked using the DAC.

A ''push'' system with Two digital clocks and re-clocking ... this is bad news for the sound reproduction.

By pulling the information itself, the LINN DS is in complete control, can enjoy a substantial buffer and there is only one LINN clock in the system, LINN\s own clock, the KLIMAX clock is patented and a major part of why LINN DS outperforms any other product. Notes and Timing!! Only with perfect timing can the music deliver the feeling and emotion behind which the artist intended and that\s what we strive for from a system.
LINN DS has up to four on/board DAC (2 per channel) using them in a similar way to  how an analogue balanced system works enabling comparison of two separate signals to allow corrections for error or unwanted noise. LINN has total control over the DAC's they use,integrating their own programming (owned/patented by LINN) unlike much of the competition which simply buy them off the shelf.

Add to that the flexibility and function of LINN DS, multi/room, share and source, even vinyl to the rooms, touch screen control and browsing from a tablet ... and there is actually no reason left to by a DAC which is a technically inferior solution, one that is quite often more expensive. Even our own studio professional DAC which we use for Live concerts cannot challenge our LINN DS.

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 …
