Scottish audio firm Linn has formally introduced its newest flagship hi-fi loudspeaker within the 360.
The 360 is all-new from the bottom up, that includes a brand new cupboard, new drive models, and new electronics. Linn describes the speaker as being “audibly invisible”, producing a efficiency with “unprecedented” readability and realism that’s absent of any sonic colouration.
It incorporates “progressive” drive models and amplifier applied sciences, producing what Linn reckons to be their lowest ever ranges of audible distortion in a speaker. The curves of the cupboard have been partnered with drive models which have been positioned flush inside an undulating baffle in order that they will emanate sound out from the speaker; producing audio that provides the identical tonality in each path.
The tweeter is the primary 19mm Beryllium dome seen within the audio business, it goals to provide a clear and open sound the place excessive frequencies are involved. The midrange unit has been crafted from thin-ply, woven carbon fibre, a composite materials that was initially utilized by NASA (sure, that NASA) to construct their Mars rover. Linn says it provides the right mixture of stiffness and lightness, and just like the tweeter, any inherent resonance or distortion created by the midrange models is pushed nearly three octaves above the audible vary of human listening to. Mainly, you received’t be capable of hear it.
For the low frequencies each the higher and decrease bass drive models function an aluminium-magnesium alloy, chosen for its stiffness to make sure a “exact piston-like behaviour” with out deviation.
Selections of colors embody the Basic Assortment’s extra refined, monochrome palettes together with Piano Black, and Alpine White.
The loudspeaker is on the market in a few variations, together with the Exakt Built-in variant (to be used with a Linn DSM Community Music Participant), in addition to a Passive with Aktiv Bass (PWAB) variant that permits it for use with third-party amplification or an all-external Exakt system that makes use of the Exaktbox.
And the worth? For the 360 Exakt Built-in it’s £87,000; whereas for the 360 PWAB model it’s a (barely) much less coronary heart palpitating determine of £55,000. Demonstrations are attainable at sellers throughout the UK, and you will discover out which of them by heading to this hyperlink.
