Akudorik is the first speaker of its kind and required a highly innovative design in order to combine the same Exakt technology found in the Akubarik floorstander with a stand-mount speaker.

The Akudorik speaker stand houses all the amps and the Exakt electronics – an unconventional solution yet it makes so much sense when you see and hear it.

Akudorik delivers performance that will confound your perception of what's possible from a compact stand-mounted loudspeaker.

a stunning work of engineering beauty

Providing a musicality and distortion-free performance that's off the scale, this is a stand-mounted speaker like no other.

The elegantly curved, rigid cabinet houses a high quality bass driver and Linn 3K Driver Array, providing the musical accuracy you'd expect from Linn. However it's how each drive unit is fed a near perfect signal that sets this speaker apart.

The innovative stand houses the Exakt digital crossover, volume control, Linn DACs and power amplification, with a dedicated channel for each of the four drive units. Signals are passed from stand to speaker using a unique 4-way connection through the base of the cabinet, so you won't see any messy wiring despite the complexity of the electronics.

Our Katalyst DAC Architecture then converts these signals with an unprecedented level of control, ensuring a deeper insight into your favourite music.

Just add a Linn DS or DSM with Exakt Link and you have a complete music system that preserves the original sound like no other compact speaker can.

Space Optimisation

Using sophisticated acoustic modelling, 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.

Exakt

Linn integrated speakers use Exakt technology to preserve the natural sound of every instrument.

Until now, no speaker system has ever been able to synchronise all the elements that make up every note, including all the harmonics. Exakt ensures the perfect time alignment of every part of every note, so now you can enjoy the same natural sound that was recorded by the artist.

Katalyst

Linn's new DAC architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever.

Katalyst delivers their best digital-to-analogue-conversion by controlling the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal's creation.

3K driver array

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

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.

precisely crafted cabinets

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

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.
