The Linn Akurate DS is a dedicated digital streaming music player that you can be added to any separates system, or used directly with a power amp making use of its on-board volume control.

Akurate DS shares key technologies with Linn's reference player, Klimax DS to produce outstanding sound quality in a more affordable package. Now completely re-engineered with Linn's new Katalyst DAC Architecture, the Akurate DS is a more compelling solution than ever.

Katalyst takes an unprecedented level of control over the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal’s creation; offering improved Data Optimisation, superior Master Clock, independent Power Supplies, a new ultra-low distortion Output Driver and crucially, for the first time, a high-stability input Reference Level. Katalyst’s high-stability input Reference Level eliminates variations during analogue signal creation, giving you a deeper insight into your music.

All Linn’s network music players are software upgradeable meaning new features, services and even performance upgrades will be made available to existing owners.

Every Linn network music player can be controlled by the things you already own. iPad or tablet, smartphone or laptop, or just the humble remote control, pick your favourite device and download the free app to control your Linn system. 

Anything you play through a Linn system can be shared around your home to other Linn DS players. Play the same track in every room, perfectly synchronised together, or select a different mood for each room in your home.

The Akurate DS is primarily used as an additional source to a separates system, but it can be used alone with a power amp using its on-board volume control. If that is not enough, it also includes Linn's proprietary Exakt Link connections ready for a Linn integrated digital active loudspeaker or Exaktbox for the ultimate upgrade.
