it's all about the music

Exaktbox

When you listen to a Linn system, it’s striking just how natural it sounds. It’s as if you’re listening to the real musicians, right there in front of you. The most natural sound available can only be achieved with perfect timing.

 

When you hear an instrument being played live, the elements that make up every note—including all the harmonics—arrive at your ear at the same time.

Sounds simple, but the fact is that no speaker system has ever been able to synchronise these elements accurately: until now.

 

Linn systems feature Exakt technology, which ensures the perfect time alignment of every part of every note, so now you can enjoy the same natural sound that was recorded by the artist.

The ultimate upgrade

While Linn's integrated speakers have amps and Exakt technology built-in, an Exaktbox, together with additional amplification, allows you to upgrade to Exakt while keeping your current speakers.

 

Every Exaktbox contains the intelligence required to time-align every frequency going to every drive unit in your speakers, producing a completely linear phase performance. Containing a programmable Exakt digital crossover and separate Katalyst digital-to-analogue conversion for every speaker channel, it’s the biggest upgrade you can make to your system.

 

If you’ve already upgraded your Linn speakers to Aktiv operation, the Exaktbox simply takes the place of the Aktiv cards or Tunebox. If you currently have passive speakers, add an Exaktbox plus additional channels of amplification to drive every channel in your speakers independently.

Connected via Exakt Link to any Exakt-enabled Linn network music player, Exaktbox can be used with your choice of power amps and Exakt-compatible speakers.

 

What’s more, every Exaktbox is software-configurable, so even if you change your speakers in the future, your system is quickly and easily updated. Exaktbox transforms your system’s performance by delivering linear phase at all frequencies.

Exaktbox Sub

Exaktbox for Subwoofers

 

Sometimes you just need more bass, and adding one or more subwoofers is a good way to beef up the bass performance of your system. But until now, adding subwoofers has always meant compromising on the music as they never quite join up with your main speakers.

 

With this Exaktbox, specifically designed for use with subwoofers, you can seamlessly integrate any subwoofer with your Exakt system, making the whole system phase linear down to 0 Hz. Now you can add bass without compromising on musical performance.

 

Using a dedicated Exaktbox Sub not only means your subwoofer gets its own precision Exakt crossover and completely linear phase response, it also enables separate configuration of your main speakers and your subwoofer, so the location of each speaker and associated differences in time-of-flight to your listening position can be catered for.

Designed to be hidden away wherever makes most sense for your set-up, the unassuming exterior belies its performance, housing two channels of Akurate-level Exakt crossover and digital-to-analogue conversion. This enables a number of configuration options, from separate left and right channels (using 2 subwoofers) to a mono or stereo connection for a single subwoofer.

 

  • Digital crossover with 2 channels of DAC
  • 2 Exakt Link connections
  • Supports 2 subwoofers in mono mode
  • Supports 1 subwoofer in stereo mode
  • Compatible with all subwoofers
