Linn is an iconic hi-fi manufacturer. Their current range spans from mid-level Sneaky and Majik systems, through to high-end Akurate and Klimax systems along with the iconic LP12 turntable and a variety of upgrades for enhanced music.

Founded in 1973, Linn all began with one very special product - Linn's debut - that turns heads and ears to this very day: the Linn Sondek LP12 turntable. A product so perfect, very little has changed about it in over 40 years. Linn have carried the same principles and methods of design and manufacture with them throughout, and their products are produced to the same high standards as the turntable that still outsells its competitors.

It is the classic tale of the origins of a hi-fi super brand. One man by the name of Ivor Tiefenbrun was unsatisfied with the performance of a hi-fi system that he had purchased in Glasgow in the very early 70s. Upon experimenting, he came to the conclusion that the sound produced by the turntable was being affected by sound pressure variations within the loudspeakers. He worked as an engineer for his father at the time, and with the help of him and a few of their colleagues, they crafted a precision engineered LP record playing turntable that was immune to acoustic feedback from loudspeakers. This was the Linn Sondek LP12, and with it was born the now widely accepted 'source-first' notion. The 'source-first' notion was a challenge to the conventional wisdom of the day, which held that the loudspeaker was the most important part of the hi-fi system, rather than the individual components making up the system.

Fast forward to the present day and Linn are still masters of source-first, to the extent that they now produce and manufacture their own music under the record company aptly named 'Linn Records'! They understand that good music is the key to good hi-fi and carry this to the core, with hi-fi designed to deliver the best quality music the very best possible way. Linn is a brand for those, who love pure music, not just sound.
