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 solution is a speaker that doesn't follow any conventional rules and yet makes so much sense when you see and hear it. The Exakt version uses the stand to house the amps and Exakt electronics, while the Passive version can be upgraded using this same stand, or using external amps and a Linn Exaktbox.
Whichever route you choose, you'll hear a 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.
