Speakers are a showroom demo in near perfect shape and come with original box. We have two different custom colors to wrap them in.
Can be shipped any way you want including White glove. Shipping price is a holder only.
We have an Akurate DSM/1 Preamp/Network Audio Player/w remote that goes with it as well if you would like to purchase the whole system.
Create your own look
Select your Fabrik cover, top plate and stand to personalize your speakers. With so many colors and textiles to choose from, and designer collections like Timorous Beasties and Harris Tweed coming soon, there's a look to complement any interior.
Fancy a change? All Linn Fabrik covers, tops and stands are available separately so you can refresh the look as often as you like.
Our systems use Exakt technology to preserve the integrity of the original studio recording all the way to the speakers.
This truly revolutionary technology turns traditional hi-fi on its head, completely removing sources of noise and distortion that affect all other music systems. By keeping the music digital until the last possible stage, Exakt enables a whole host of performance-enhancing capabilities.
Space Optimisation +
Using sophisticated acoustic modeling, Space Optimisation+ builds a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear.
By removing the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment, it reveals the true sound of the music. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.
Isobarik Bass System
Linn’s Isobarik bass system lets you enjoy a depth of bass normally associated with much larger speakers 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 base. The 530 produces incredible bass extension using this system in combination with dual bass ports located on the underside of the cabinet to enable additional airflow.
To offer the unique style and customization possibilities of Series 5, without affecting the performance, we came up with a new way to finish speakers — Linn Fabrik.
Linn's unique Exakt technology models the effects of each Fabrik’s characteristics on the frequency and phase response of every drive unit in the speakers. Exakt's digital crossover eliminates any unwanted distorting effects to ensure that no matter which Fabrik you choose, your speakers will produce the same breath-taking performance we designed here in the factory.
Precisely Crafted Cabinets
The foundation of any good speaker design is an enclosure that lets the drive units work with maximum efficiency, without coloring the sound.
For Series 5, we used a layered composite of 3 mm sheets. Using multiple thin layers actually increases the tensile strength and therefore rigidity of the material, while still preserving its acoustically dead properties. Combined with the braced construction, this results in a cabinet that doesn’t add unwanted vibrations and doesn’t ring, but does give the drive units an incredibly stable platform to work from.
Custom-Designed Drive Units
The ambitious design of Series 5 led to a unique set of requirements for the drive units that couldn’t be met by any existing specification.
The 530 needed compact yet very long-throw, low-resonance units for use in the Isobarik bass system. The unique arrangement of tweeter and bass/mid driver on both models also required customized drive units. The bass/mid driver uses a unique doped, dual-layer, sliced cone design and an anti-resonant chamber on the back of the high-quality tweeter improves high-frequency performance when used in conjunction with the familiar Linn ‘skoop’, producing outstanding dispersion characteristics.
