Introducing Linn 360
Linn 360 is visibly remarkable. Its curvaceous cabinet, intricately machined trim, and range of dynamic finishes combine to present an overall aesthetic that is familiar, yet with ultra-modern flair and contemporary class.
Linn 360 produces a performance with unprecedented clarity and realism, that’s entirely absent of sonic colouration.
Incorporating innovative drive unit and amplifier technologies. The honed curves of its cabinet are partnered with meticulously matched drive units to deliver the cleanest possible dispersion characteristics.
Experience the Linn 360 sound-stage; with vocals suspended in space, and true-to-life scale and depth leaving you utterly devoid of the sense you are listening to a pair of stereo speakers.
Hear the Music
Critical to Linn 360’s sonic character, is the wholesale elimination of audible distortion brought about by the cutting-edge material science of the drive units, and their integration with Linn's latest amplifier technologies in both the Bass System and new 360 Array.
Linn 360 produces exceptionally pure sound with astonishing clarity and transparency due to the hardness, great inherent strength, and low-mass of the futuristic materials deployed throughout the suite of drive units.
Their diaphragms don’t colour the sound they generate in any way – you only hear the music.
When these acoustic and electronic innovations are deployed alongside Linn's unique and established loudspeaker technologies – Exakt and Space Optimisation – Linn 360 becomes audibly invisible.
Designed expressly for Linn 360, "The Glasgow Collection" is a range of curated cabinet finishes, that demonstrate Linn's pride in their origins and celebrate their Scottish home. These three special finishes are dynamic and complex; colour and texture play off the curves of the 360 cabinet under different lighting conditions and when viewed from different angles. The Linn 360 is also availble in any custom colour of your choice.

The Bass System within Linn 360 delivers lower frequency sound with more impact, efficiency and dramatically less distortion thanks to their new Power DAC technology. Built from the ground up, this new Linn technology combines DAC and amp into a single step – thus extending the digital path and reducing loss.
Power DAC is highly efficient, ultra-low-noise, and provides the perfect platform for driving the lower bass system in 360. The prodigious excursion capability of the matched lower bass drive units in Linn 360 produces seismic, realistic and distortion-free bass that will seriously move you.
Adaptive Bias Control
Linn's new Adaptive Bias Control amplifier technology is critical to the superlative performance of tweeter, midrange and upper bass drive units – comprising the all-new 360 Array.
Adaptive Bias Control eliminates distortion from the amplifiers using real-time, dynamic management and correction; ensuring that they behave at their absolute optimum in all scenarios – for all types of music, at all kinds of listening levels, and at all times.
Linn 360 possesses extraordinary dispersion characteristics. The curvaceous front of each speaker tapers from bottom to top, with shaped radii specifically matched to the requirements of each individual drive unit. The speakers’ drive units are placed perfectly flush within this smooth baffle, so that they emanate sound, out and away from the speaker, entirely without obstruction. These elements result in a speaker which produces precisely the same tonality in every direction, reinforcing the sound-stage of the original recording.
Form follows function in a visibly remarkable aesthetic that breaks ground beyond traditional speaker cabinet design. The shapely and extremely robust cabinet is built up from formed 3D laminates – pushing the limitations of engineering to construct a fluid front baffle which reaches right around either side of the speaker.
Machined into the 360 Array trim piece are a series of concentric arcs – themselves redolent of the grooves of a vinyl record in a conscientious nod to our origins and the Sondek LP12 turntable upon which Linn was founded. These grooves are set adjacent to a tweeter protector, which draws the eye in with its chrome-plated Linn icon feature.
The engineered trim is machined in-house from 5754-grade aluminium, and incorporates ingenious waveguides to help facilitate optimum performance from the drive units which they surround.
