Linn 360: New Flagship Loudpseaker In 2 Different Versions

Scottish manufacturer Linn promises numerous innovations and new developments for the new flagship 360 speakers, which are said to make it their best model yet.

The new Linn 360 high-end 4-way loudspeaker is available in two versions, with the drivers themselves and cabinet being identical in both, and the difference being in the way they are powered: The "Exakt Integrated" version is a fully active speaker designed to partner with the Linn DSM network player, carrying only two "Exakt Link" inputs for connection to the source device. Alternatively, the Linn 360 is available as a partially powered speaker in the "Passive with Aktiv Bass" version, in which the lower bass drivers are also active, while the high, mid and upper bass drivers are passive, each receiving their signals through their own connector on the back of the unit.

Both versions of the new speaker feature two powered lower bass drivers, for which Linn promises, among other things, significantly increased excursion. These woofers are driven by a "Power DAC," which Linn says is a newly developed combination of DAC and amplifier that promises powerful, distortion-free bass. All three of the 360's bass drivers are made of an aluminum/magnesium alloy, which is said to feature high rigidity, among other things. A 19mm beryllium driver is used for the tweeter, which Linn says removes all distortion from the audible range, providing a clean and open sound. The same applies to the midrange driver made of woven carbon fiber, according to Linn.

In addition to "Exakt" technology, which is said to reproduce music with perfect timing, the fully integrated version of the Linn 360 houses "Adaptive Bias Control". This sound correction technology is said to eliminate distortion in the power amplifiers of the tweeter, midrange driver and upper woofer. Both versions of the new Linn flagship come in the same finishes: piano black as well as alpine white as the "Classic Collection" and "Clyde Built," "Single Malt" and "Linn Heritage" as the "Glasgow Collection"; custom colors are also said to be possible.

The new flasghip loudspeaker 360 from Linn is stated to be available to order immediately. The "Passive with Aktiv Bass" version is to cost €55,000 excluding tax, while the fully active "Exakt Integrated" version, which can be used in conjunction with a Linn DSM network player, is to cost €87,500 excluding tax.
