Audibly Invisible

Linn 360

360 is audibly invisible. It produces a performance with unprecedented clarity and realism, that’s entirely absent of sonic colouration. Incorporating innovative drive unit and amplifier technologies, 360 turns out our lowest ever levels of audible distortion. The honed curves of its cabinet are partnered with meticulously matched drive units to deliver the cleanest possible dispersion characteristics.

All that is experienced with 360 is sound-stage; with vocals suspended in space, and true-to-life scale and depth leaving you utterly devoid of the sense you are listening to a pair of stereo speakers.

Ultra-low distortion = Zero colouration

Linn 360

Critical to 360’s sonic character, is the wholesale elimination of audible distortion brought about by the cutting-edge material science which drove development of the drive units, and their subsequent integration with our latest amplifier technologies in both the Bass System and new 360 Array.

Breakthrough dispersion characteristics

Linn 360

The curvaceous front of each speaker tapers from bottom to top, with shaped radii specifically matched to the requirements of each individual drive unit. The speakers’ constituent drive units are placed perfectly flush within this smooth baffle, so that they emanate sound, out and away from the speaker, entirely without obstruction. These elements result in a speaker which produces precisely the same tonality in every direction, reinforcing the sound-stage of the original recording.

Visibly Remarkable

Linn 360

360 is visibly remarkable. Its curvaceous cabinet, intricately machined trim, and range of dynamic finishes combine to present an overall aesthetic that is familiar, yet with ultra-modern flair and contemporary class.

The shapely and extremely robust cabinet is built up from scrupulously formed 3D laminates – pushing and exceeding the limitations of ply engineering to construct a fluid front baffle which reaches right around either side of the speaker.

Machined into the 360 Array trim piece are a series of concentric arcs – themselves redolent of the grooves of a vinyl record in a conscientious nod to our origins and the Sondek LP12 turntable upon which Linn was founded. These grooves are set adjacent to a tweeter protector, which draws the eye in with its chrome-plated Linn icon feature. The engineered trim is machined in-house from 5754-grade aluminium, and incorporates ingenious waveguides to help facilitate optimum performance from the drive units which they surround.

Designed expressly for 360, The Glasgow Collection is a range of curated cabinet finishes, that demonstrate pride in our origins and celebrate our Scottish home. These three special finishes are dynamic and complex; colour and texture play off the curves of the 360 cabinet under different lighting conditions and when viewed from different angles.

The Classic Collection offers a more subtle, monochrome palette: the timeless elegance of Piano Black, and the minimalist chic of Alpine White.

Applications

Linn 360

360 is available to order in two distinct model variants to suit your desired application at home. Choose 360 Integrated Exakt partnered with a Klimax DSM: System Hub for the highest-performing one box/two speakers hifi system on the market – benefitting from our groundbreaking, proprietary Exakt technology integrated throughout. It’s the closest you can get to a genuine live music experience from the comfort of your home.

If you are building your dream separates system, you can also benefit from the monumental performance gains of 360, by choosing the Passive with Aktiv Bass (PWAB) variant and driving the 360 Array with amplification of your choice. 360 PWAB can be easily converted to perform in an all-external Linn Exakt system featuring Klimax Exaktbox and separate amplification, if so desired.

360 Array with Adaptive Bias Control

Linn 360

Our new Adaptive Bias Control amplifier technology is critical to the superlative performance of the tweeter, midrange and upper bass drive units – comprising the all-new 360 Array. Adaptive Bias Control eliminates distortion from the amplifiers using real-time, dynamic management and correction; ensuring that they behave at their absolute optimum in all scenarios – for all types of music, at all kinds of listening levels, and at all times.

Bass System with Power DAC technology

Linn 360

The Bass System delivers lower frequency sound with more impact, efficiency and dramatically less distortion thanks to our new Power DAC technology. Built from the ground up, this new Linn technology combines DAC and amp into a single step – thus extending the digital path and reducing loss.

Power DAC is highly efficient, ultra-low-noise, and provides the perfect platform for driving the lower bass system in 360. When coupled with the prodigious excursion capability of the matched lower bass drive units, 360 produces seismic, realistic and distortion-free bass that will seriously move you.
