Linn Akubarik



Integrated, intelligent and inimitable

Our team had a clear goal in mind for the design of Akubarik: to take the elegance, precision and performance of our flagship range, and package it into a more compact enclosure, suitable for any size of room.

The simplicity of the design brief is reflected in the refinement of the curved cabinet, but look beneath the surface and you’ll discover just how much proprietary Linn technology has been packed into this unique speaker to produce its outstanding performance characteristics.

Fed by a single network cable from any Exakt-compatible Linn DSM player, the on-board Exakt digital crossover in each speaker delivers five independently controlled channels, each with its own dedicated volume control, Katalyst DAC and power amplifier.

The Linn 3K driver array then delivers fantastically clear mid- and high-frequencies throughout your room, while an integrated Isobarik bass system delivers power and musicality in the lowest frequencies negating the need for an overall larger speaker or separate subwoofers.

Akubarik will reignite your passion for music with startling clarity, impeccable timing and impactful bass that belies its medium size.

Each Linn speaker contains features and technology developed by our engineers across years of industry-leading research and development.

Space Optimisation

Space Optimisation removes the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment to reveal the true sound of the music. So whatever speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.



Our Katalyst DAC Architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever. Katalyst delivers our best digital-to-analogue-conversion by controlling the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal’s creation.


Our systems feature Exakt technology, which ensures the perfect time alignment of every part of every note, so now you can enjoy the same precise sound that was recorded by the artist.


Every Linn speaker has been designed and built to include features guaranteeing sound quality of the highest standard without compromising on the style and elegance you expect for your home.

Precisely Crafted Cabinets

The complex laminated cabinet construction is pressure-formed to produce the distinctive curved design while providing an exceptionally rigid shell for the drive units to operate with minimised resonance. Carefully placed internal bracing provides added rigidity and an acoustically inert enclosure for stable mounting of the drive units.

Precisely Crafted Cabinets

Linn’s speaker cabinets combine master craftsmanship with advanced materials and manufacturing techniques to produce beautiful, high performance acoustic enclosures.

3k Driver Array

By minimising the distance between drive units, a single-point sound source is created, which together with the acoustic ‘skoop’, produces exceptionally wide dispersion for precise and consistent high frequency performance throughout the room.

3k Driver Array

Three drive units — mid, tweeter and super-tweeter — are housed in a single rigid, die-cast chassis.

Integrated Exakt Modules

Built-in to the rear of the speaker is an intelligent, networked module that’s suspension-mounted to acoustically isolate it from the cabinet. Connected to a Linn network music player using Exakt Link, the module is fed a digital signal, which is split by the Exakt digital crossover into the precise frequencies required for each drive unit. Exakt’s powerful processing ensures the perfect time alignment of every frequency played by each drive unit, preserving the precise sound of every instrument.

Integrated Exakt Modules

Our integrated speakers have amplifiers and Exakt electronics on-board, delivering incredible performance in an elegant package.

Isobarik Bass

By using two bass drive units working in tandem, positioned face-to-face at the foot of the speaker, bass is directed downwards and radiates out from the speaker through a precisely engineered air gap above the solid machined base.

Isobarik Bass

A depth of bass normally associated with much larger speakers.
