“This is Linn shifting up… You get super-low levels of distortion, unparalleled levels of dispersion, and a sonic performance that produces desperation in its rivals.”

Linn 360 speakers combine cutting-edge technology, customization options, and exceptional sound quality. Here are some key aspects that set them apart from other speaker systems:
- Exakt Technology: The Linn 360 speakers utilize Linn’s proprietary Exakt technology, which enables precise digital control over the entire audio signal path. This technology ensures that the sound reproduction is extremely accurate, minimizing phase distortion and time smearing for a more natural and immersive listening experience.
- Aktiv Power-DAC Bass System: The Linn 360 speakers incorporate an Aktiv bass system, which employs advanced digital signal processing (DSP) and amplification in one step to actively control the low-frequency drivers. This technology optimizes the bass response and eliminates unwanted resonances, resulting in greater efficiency and tighter, more controlled bass reproduction.
- Space Optimization: Linn offers Space Optimization, a feature that analyzes the room acoustics and speaker placement to optimize the sound performance. By applying advanced algorithms, the Linn 360 speakers can adapt their output to the specific characteristics of the listening environment, compensating for any detrimental effects caused by room acoustics.
- Customization and Upgradability: Linn provides customization options for the 360 speakers, allowing customers to select different finishes such as sheen and color, as well as trim options, to match their personal preferences and room aesthetics. In addition the 360 speaker integrates the crossover function that separates the full audio frequency range into the appropriate frequency range for each of the separate high frequency, mid-frequency and low frequency speaker drive units. Currently two electronics module options are available: one is a full Exakt-based solution having separate amplifiers integrated and tailored to each speaker drive unit, the other contains a passive crossover compatible with conventional stereo integrated audio amplifiers and stereo or dual mono-block power amplifiers. The passive crossover version can quickly and easily be adapted today to full external Aktive operation that uses separate external amplifiers for each speaker drive unit. Additionally, Linn’s commitment to upgradability means that customers can benefit from future enhancements and advancements, ensuring their speakers stay current and improve over time.
- Expert Engineering and Craftsmanship: Linn has a reputation for its engineering expertise and meticulous craftsmanship. The Linn 360 speakers are designed and manufactured with attention to detail, using high-quality materials and advanced techniques to deliver both performance and durability.
By combining these features, the Linn 360 speakers offer precise and immersive sound reproduction, adaptable to different room environments, with the ability to customize the appearance and benefit from future upgrades. These qualities make them an attractive choice for customers seeking an exceptional audio experience tailored to their preferences.
