Product Description

Linn's compact 520 floorstanding speakers are matched with the Akurate Exakt DSM system to outperform others speaker of this size, they also offer a broad range of customisation options to match your decor or make a bold design statement. Regardless of how you choose to personalise the look, the music will always take centre stage. Series 5 features Linn Fabrik, enabling every speaker to be uniquely tailored to your taste. And with Linn's ground-breaking Exakt technology on board, you will always hear a performance that's optimised for you and your home.

Compact and customisable

Enjoy all the musicality and finesse of an integrated Linn speaker packed with technology, in our most compact design yet. Designed to be personalised for you and your home, the size and styling are subtle but the performance will stand out. Customise the look and place them where they fit best in your room — Space Optimisation+ takes care of optimising the sound for your room's characteristics and chosen speaker location.

Space Optimisation+Exakt Technology

Acoustic tailoring

To offer the unique style and customisation possibilities of Series 5, Linn's designers came up with a new way to finish the speakers that would not only allow you to create your own look, but also protect the drive units, while preserving the integrity of the performance. They created a collection of Linn Fabrik coverings using specially designed, light and open weave patterns that allow the music through, while offering a wide choice of contemporary and classic colours and designs.

But the material itself is only half the story. No other speaker can offer such a variety of covering options without detrimentally affecting the sound. Series 5 speakers use Exakt technology to model the effects of each Fabrik’s characteristics on the frequency and phase response of every drive unit. Exakt's digital crossover eliminates any unwanted distorting effects to ensure that no matter which Fabrik you choose, your speakers will produce the same breath-taking performance we designed here in the factory.
