The New Flagship 360
The new 360 loudspeaker is audibly invisible and visibly remarkable. It produces a performance with unprecedented clarity, combined with a curvaceous cabinet, intricately machined trim, and range of finishes to present an overall aesthetic with ultra-modern flair and contemporary class.
Network Music Players
Stream everything. Connect anything. Linn's network music players are flexible and future-proof. From high-res albums to movie soundtracks: it's all at your fingertips. Welcome to high-performance music streaming.
Unmatched for almost five decades, the Sondek LP12 remains the pinnacle of record player design. An icon that’s still evolving. A revolution that's still revolving.
Anyone can make a power amp that goes loud but only Linn's innovative engineering and meticulous attention to detail can deliver clean, precise power instantaneously, whenever the music demands it, without the noise, distortion and bulk of inferior designs. Ultra-efficient, cool-running and responsive, Linn’s power amplifiers set the standard in high performance amplification.
Make a Linn DSM network music player the bandleader of your system, replete with analogue and digital inputs and outputs to make everything you listen to sound better. Partner with your choice of amplification and loudspeakers to experience audio with stunning clarity and power — unlike anything you’ve ever heard.
Alternatively, a Linn System Hub can be used directly with a pair of Linn’s own integrated Exakt loudspeakers using our proprietary, lossless Exakt Link connections; with all the high-performance amplification and digital-to-analogue conversion required taking place inside the speakers themselves.
