Linn 520 system


Compact and customisable with breathtaking musicality; finally a high performance music system you can personalise to complement your home.

The 520 speakers provide a far bigger performance than their discreet dimensions would imply. Together with the Selekt System Hub, the 520 system will stream all your digital music in stunning Linn quality, while also letting you connect all your other music sources.

520 Speakers

Enjoy all the musicality and finesse of an integrated Linn speaker packed with technology, in our most compact design yet.

Customise the look and place them where they fit best in your room; Space Optimisation+ takes care of optimising the sound for your room’s characteristics and chosen speaker location.

Power and intelligence built-in

Linn’s innovative integrated speakers have power and intelligence built-in. A specially designed module, suspension-mounted on the back of each speaker, houses the powerful amps and Exakt electronics that optimise performance. Now you don’t need lots of hi-fi separates to make great sound

Selekt System Hub

Stream all your favourite music from the cloud or over your own home network and hear it in exceptional quality. Selekt System Hub will handle everything from Studio Master downloads to TIDAL streaming or internet radio and includes all the inputs you’ll need to connect all your music sources, from TV to turntable, and make them sound better too.

Every element of Selekt System Hub is precision engineered for the most authentic musical performance possible. Designed to be seen as well as heard, the combination of a jewel-like dial and customisable smart buttons will revolutionise your interaction with digital music.

Perfect streaming to your speakers

Featuring Linn’s streaming technology and a range of inputs to connect anything in your living room, every musical performance is perfectly transmitted to the speakers using Linn’s Exakt Link lossless connection.

Selekt System Hub is designed for use in a Linn system with Exakt technology and is the perfect choice for those seeking an all-Linn performance solution from the outset.
