A breakthrough new concept in high performance,
customisable music systems for the home
World-renowned music system manufacturer, Linn, unveils Series 5 – two stylish new systems offering a unique solution for music in the home. Created as part of an exciting collaboration with some of the most respected names in fashion and design, Series 5 music systems deliver world-class sound in a package that offers previously unachievable levels of personalization.
Thanks to its ground-breaking Exakt technology, Linn introduces the concept of high performance, completely customizable music systems. With a LinnFabrik covered design, it is possible to choose a tailor-made solution that complements the décor of any home and optimizes for the best performance in the room.
The Unique Qualities of Linn Fabrik Series 5 features a new textile speaker covering – LinnFabrik – which has been designed to provide an elegant, contemporary and customizable look. Textiles offer incredible versatility, but it’s only now through the development of LinnFabrik and the use of Linn’s intelligent Exakt technology that it has been possible to create a fabric covered music system that delivers exceptional sound.
Limitless possibilities for personalization
For the launch of Series 5, Linn has designed the first LinnFabrik collection, consisting of three stylish weaves and eleven beautiful colours. With a variety of subtle and bright tones, and the ability to change the cover whenever you like, there’s a LinnFabrik to complement the décor of any home. Linn has partnered with iconic fabric designers, Timorous Beasties and Harris Tweed Hebrides, to create new speaker cover collections – due for release in early 2016. With more collections launching throughout 2016 and beyond, it is possible to update your Series 5 speaker with new LinnFabriks that will match the changing design of your home.
Optimized for Performance
The options for personalization don’t end with how the system looks; using Linn’s Space Optimization+ technology, Series 5 speakers can be placed wherever they look best in the room, removing the need to place speakers in the optimal position for sound quality. This powerful technology eliminates the unwanted distorting effects of every room to reveal the true sound of the music.
The Systems Linn launched its first range of innovative Exakt products in September 2013. Series 5 adds to this Exakt family, delivering two beautifully-styled new Exakt systems comprising an Akurate Exakt DSM and a choice of Linn530 or Linn520 floorstanding loudspeakers.
Series 5 achieves the performance of a much larger and more expensive music system within a compact and highly customizable aesthetic. Both new loudspeaker models feature a set of LinnFabrik covers and a beautiful, jewel-cut glass top plate and stand. The elegant Linn530 System provides power, precision and incredible musical accuracy, while its little sister, the Linn520 System exudes musicality and style with a discreet form factor.
The Akurate Exakt DSM is the hub of a Series 5 system, and has connections for all music sources, whether that’s streaming music from online streaming services such as TIDAL and Qobuz, playing your treasured music collection or connecting a turntable.
