Linn Akurate Exakt Akubarik System
The Akurate System featuring Akubarik speakers uses the same Exakt technology used in our flagship Klimax System, putting the source in the speaker.
Exakt builds on Linn DS to radically improve the performance of music systems by pushing the lossless digital path all the way to the speaker.
Comprising the Akurate Exakt DSM digital music player and Exakt Akubarik speakers, the Akurate System’s beautiful styling and exceptional sound quality will re-ignite your passion for music.
Akurate Systems also feature Space Optimisation+ technology to optimise performance for your unique listening environment, so every system is personalised for you.
Akurate Exakt DSM
Browse your digital music library, stream music and video online and hear movie soundtracks, all in exceptional detail. Akurate Exakt DSM connects to virtually any music or audio source in your home and plays it flawlessly.
Anything connected to the Akurate Exakt DSM is transmitted perfectly to the Exakt Akubarik speakers via Exakt Link, using a single digital cable. With multiple digital and analogue connections including HDMI, XLR, and an onboard phono stage for your turntable, we have everything covered; you can even Airplay from your phone or tablet.
Exakt Akubarik speakers combine our integrated Aktiv technology developed for Akubarik speakers with Exakt technology to put the source in the speaker.
The five channels in each speaker are fed by a single digital input using the Exakt Link output from Akurate Exakt DSM. The on-board digital crossover in each speaker delivers an independently controlled signal to each of the drive units, via independent volume controls, DACs and power amplifiers.
Exakt technology completely eliminates magnitude and phase distortion and corrects for drive unit variation.
Space Optimisation+ ensures your speakers are optimised for your unique listening environment.
Exakt Akubarik uses an Isobarik bass system, consisting of two bass drive units housed in the base of a beautifully curved and compact cabinet, letting you enjoy a depth of bass normally associated with much larger speakers. High and mid frequencies are served with stunning precision by Linn’s unique 3K driver array, also found in our Klimax speakers.
Available in a range of stunning finishes, Akubarik fits perfectly in every living space.
Great sound shouldn’t cramp your style. Design your home the way you want to and experience the true sound of the music.
Hear your music, not your room
Every room has its own particular sound. When you’re investing in a world-class music system, why let your room have such a big say in what you hear? Remove the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment and reveal the true sound of the music.
Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. It then precisely identifies frequencies that are artificially distorted by your environment, and reduces their energy, to reveal the music that would otherwise be hidden.
Whatever speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.
All Linn systems have Space Optimisation built in, and it’s available as a free software upgrade to all Linn DS owners too.
Optimised for your chosen speakers
Your speakers play a key role in determining the behaviour of sound in your room. Because every speaker design is different, the sound from your particular speakers has a unique set of interactions with your surroundings.
Space Optimisation models these interactions by taking account of the characteristics of your speakers, such as the position of each drive unit and the response of bass reflex ports. Combining this information with the modelling of your room’s acoustics enables Space Optimisation to optimise the sound uniquely for your chosen speakers.
Designed to work with whatever brand of speakers you choose. Place your speakers where you want them
The interactions between your speakers and the boundaries of your room can dramatically distort the sound that you hear. For example, placing a speaker near to a wall will add energy to particular low frequencies, masking other areas of the music.
Until now, there has been a choice: place your speakers in the ideal location for sound, or choose a more practical location that compromises sound quality.
Space Optimisation is able to recreate the sound of the ideal location, from your preferred, practical location to give you the best of both worlds. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.
Optimised for your custom environment
The characteristics of your room affect the sound you hear. Sound waves reflecting off your walls, ceiling and floor create peaks of increased energy at specific frequencies. Construction materials, furnishings and features like doors and windows, also affect how much energy is reflected, and the length of time it takes to decay.
Space Optimisation allows your Linn Specialist to identify the precise frequencies affected and reduce their energy by just the right amount, removing the distorting effect of your room to reveal the true sound of the music.
Design your home the way you want to and enjoy a performance that’s optimised for you.
Linn's Exakt systems deliver an enhanced version of this technology: Space Optimisation+
Exakt incorporates the measured response of every individual drive unit. It enables even more advanced speaker modelling that’s specific, not just to the model of speaker, but to the unique pair of speakers in your home.
This advanced approach to speaker modelling means Space Optimisation+ can apply a far greater level of precision when optimising the sound, personalised for your particular speakers.
