The Linn Exakt range has a new addition. With each new development Exakt technology becomes more affordable and now it also applies to older Linn speakers. There is a new Akurate DSM Exact without the analogue outputs. This connects to your network for DS music, has all the usual inputs, but uniquely outputs in Exakt digital format to an Akurate Exakt tunebox which is a digital exact matching to your acoustics. Further details about the Exakt advantage are in previous blogs and also at http://www.linn.co.uk/systems/technology/exakt ain Active crossover, and then digital to analogue converters to go the power amps and the speakers. The digital crossover is tuned to the specific Linn speaker you have, and also features room correction for
In addition there is a new Linn speaker, the bookshelf Akudorik, a development of the Akurate 212. The Akudoriks are £ 4000 per pair, but the really clever part is in the new stands.
That's why the stands are £ 9500 per pair!
If you think that's a lot for stands, which it is, they house the Exakt digital crossovers and 4 by 100w power amps in each stand, so that's why! And if you add up the full Akurate/Akudorik system you get £ 17500. While that is a lot for smallish speakers the Exakt technology makes the speakers sound much larger and the room correction gives great bass in any room.
Buying the parts in separate boxes would cost £9000 and look messy with lots of boxes and wires. This is an elegant solution that really works. One small cable from the Akurate DSM preamplifier to each speaker and you are sorted.
Exakt crossover settings are now available for all previous Linn speakers so Keltik, Isobarik, Ninka, Espek, 5140, Kan, Keilidh, Kaber etc can all benefit from Exakt technology.
Following this Linn will also apply Exakt technology to other speakers so you will soon be able to upgrade B&W 800 series with Exact.
