Linn extends its ground-breaking Exakt platform into its Akurate range with the highly acclaimed Akubarik loudspeaker the latest product to benefit from this revolutionary new technology which allows for room and location correction in customers’ homes.
Exakt eliminates the sources of loss inherent in the hi-fi chain by transferring the lossless digital signal all the way to the speaker. Launched in Linn’s flagship Klimax Exakt System, Exakt loudspeakers are a digital platform that enables a whole new range of performance-enhancing capabilities and the ability for Grahams to optimise the system to your home. This ensures the best possible sound no matter the unique characteristics of your room and your preferred speaker positioning.
Exakt eliminates magnitude and phase distortion that is inherent in traditional passive crossovers so what you hear is a more faithful reproduction of the music as it was recorded. All speaker drive units have their own unique characteristics. Exakt measures and corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units, meaning every system that leaves the factory performs exactly to the designers specification.
In order to deliver the digital signal losslessly to the speaker, Linn developed a new protocol — Exakt Link. Exakt Link achieves what no existing standard could: accuracy of data transmission with the ability to losslessly transmit 8 channels of digital audio with exceptionally low jitter to ensure perfect musical timing and extreme precision synchronisation between speakers.
The remaining specification of Exakt Akubarik retains the exceptional acoustic and mechanical qualities of the original Akubarik product including the two 8” glass fibre composite cones mounted face-to-face in the isobaric system on the underside of the enclosure. By doubling the driving force, the moving mass and the stiffness of the suspension (i.e. two cones, two motors and two voice coils), Exakt Akubarik delivers the rich, deep and detailed bass extension normally reserved for much larger speakers, and all from a relatively slim, stylish and compact cabinet. All of the other drivers of the Exakt Akubarik are mounted on the front baffle including Linn’s unique, patented 3K driver array technology in a machined die cast aluminium chassis for optimum positioning to achieve wider dispersion, precise high frequency response and single-point source accuracy. Upper bass is handled by a 6” doped paper driver mounted in its own sealed enclosure designed to deliver better transients with less distortion. The six-channel amp module houses the Exakt digital crossover, volume control, Linn Katalyst DACs and Linn’s patented Chakra ‘silent power’ amplification, all mounted within a special and effective passive cooling chimney which draws the warm air up and out of the electronics without requiring a fan. Great care has also been taken to isolate the electronics from the cabinet to minimise microphony. Exakt Akubarik’s gently curved cabinet is practical, beautiful and living-room-friendly. The cabinet is a composite construction of steam moulded, layers of wood veneer and MDF. Additional meticulously placed internal bracing creates an exceptionally rigid and acoustically inert structure and a very stable mounting for the drive units. Finished by hand, Exakt Akubarik is available in a range of stunning finishes, including six high-grade real wood veneers in standard or high gloss options. A stunning range of 200 bespoke, high gloss colour finishes are also available. Exakt Akubarik can be further personalised through the choice of polished chrome or black finishes for the chassis of the 3K array.
