This Akurate Exakt System features Exakt Akudorik Bookshelf Speakers to deliver great performance in a simple package.
The Exakt Akudorik is a stunning work of engineering beauty; the first speaker of its kind, integrating Exakt technology into a compact speaker through its innovative stand design. Comprising Akurate Exakt DSM and Exakt Akudorik speakers, this elegant integrated system outperforms larger and more expensive separates, without dominating your room.
And of course with Exakt technology, you experience the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist, from a system that’s optimised for your room.
Linn Akurate Exakt DSM:
Browse your digital music library, stream music and video online and hear movie soundtracks, all in exceptional detail. Akurate Exakt DSM connects to virtually any music or audio source in your home and plays it flawlessly. Anything connected to the Akurate Exakt DSM is transmitted perfectly to the Exakt Akubarik speakers via Exakt Link, using a single digital cable. With multiple digital and analogue connections including HDMI, XLR, and an onboard phono stage for your turntable, we have everything covered; you can even Airplay from your phone or tablet.
Linn Akurate Akudorik Bookshelf Speakers:
A stunning work of engineering beauty, Exakt Akudorik combines the ground-breaking performance of Exakt with compact styling that will complement any room.
Exakt Akudorik combines Linn’s class-leading acoustic expertise with an innovative stand design that houses all the electronics to drive the speaker actively, using Exakt technology.
Exakt eliminates magnitude and phase distortion, corrects for drive unit variation, and optimises your speakers for your room, giving you incredible performance that’s personalised for you. Like its bigger brother Exakt Akubarik, the speaker is fed a digital signal using the Exakt Link connection from an Akurate Exakt DSM. The suspended, acoustically isolated amplifier module in each stand houses four channels of Linn Chakra amplification, feeding each of the drive units independently. Powered by a Linn Dynamik power supply, the module is passively cooled, avoiding the need for noisy fans. Exakt Akudorik features the same Linn 3K Driver Array technology and complex laminated cabinet construction as found on Akubarik, ensuring outstanding dispersion and damping characteristics.
Available in a range of stunning finishes, Exakt Akudorik fits perfectly in every living space.
Please note: Linn use real wood finishes which can vary in grain and colour. Because of this, the images should be regarded as a representation only and not taken as an exact colour match.
“In many ways this is an astonishing system. We can’t think of an alternative that delivers a sound with such detail and focus.”
“It’s a fast sound, magnificently agile and as articulate as you like”
“We’re struck by the system’s direct presentation...makes the efforts of even the best passive speakers we’ve heard sound blurred and soft in comparison.”
“It’s nicely made, exotically engineered and designed with a flexible approach to ensure it delivers in as wide a range of environments as possible. We wished more high-end manufacturers would take a similar view.”

29 May 2015Simply extraordinary! This system just sounds "right", more than anything else I've heard. Unfortunately I wasnt lucky enough to be in the market for this system (I only popped in for some new speaker cables!) but Audio Affair were generous enough to invite me to have a listen to it.
Most of us spend so much time trying to match this with that from different manufacturers, no more importantly than with amplifier and speakers, I expect this is why this system works so well as its purpose designed to do everything so well. Its made for the amplifier to match the speakers and amplifier and source, although its all in a single box. Even the latter is a feature for contention with most of us, but Linn appear to have created a system within a single box that surpasses most of the multi-box systems I've heard. Perhaps though the fact the Akudorik speakers are active (or "aktiv") is a benefit as it removes the power amp from the main box, leaving this dedicated for the pre amp and source.
Its also very simple to use on its iPad app. I tried a range of high res music content from Michael Jackson to The Eagles to Nickelback to Chopin. Its can be both detailed, airy and light as it can be pack a real punch and by dynamic and fast. I really cant think of anything else Ive heard with this range of abilities which manages to do everything so well.
