of Linn Audio Loudspeakers
of Linn Audio Loudspeakers is David Linn, an Electrical
Engineer, who is also a life long lover of music and audio.
He has been designing and constructing high-end audio
equipment for most of his adult life, with a special emphasis on
loudspeaker systems. Linn Audio was formerly in the “Granite
State”, New Hampshire, and had been building custom loudspeakers for
clients for many years in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire, as well
as covering the North Shore area of Massachusetts. Linn Audio
has decided to expand the market for our custom designed speakers by
standardizing on just one system, which we know has been extremely
popular for past and existing clients.
Testing and Listening
has an obsession with eliminating distortion in his systems.
He has a very sensitive ear for distortion, a unique and probably his
greatest talent, that far surpasses the information that can be had
from test instruments alone. He has done everything
conceivable to minimize or eliminate distortion from the Linn Audio
line of speakers. There is no such thing as “zero
distortion,” especially in speakers, but Mr. Linn believes that his
speaker designs come as close as can be found in the high-end speaker
market, regardless of price. “Transparency” is a word that he
also uses to describe his speaker designs. In other words,
nothing gets in the way of the music, and it is as close as you can get
to the original performance. “Most accurate” would also be
good words to describe the Linn Audio systems, since they reproduce the
music as faithfully as possible to the original performance.
Of course Linn
Audio also utilizes the best available electronic test instruments to
verify the proper performance of the systems, but this work is always
followed up by many hours of extensive listening, playing all the
different genres of music, to assure the lowest possible distortion and
musicality of the designs.
musical instruments created by skilled craftsmen, Linn Audio
loudspeakers are constructed using the best materials available.
All parts of every speaker, cabinet materials, drivers,
crossover components, wiring, damping materials, are selected for sonic
quality. Inner cabinets are constructed with multi-layered
Medite MDF, then cross-braced and glued under pressure to eliminate any
resonance. Drivers are chosen for their sonic quality from
among the best available in the entire world. All drivers are
selected for their sonic merits and construction quality. All
crossover components are constructed to eliminate any resonance, and
every crossover component is supplied by premium parts suppliers.
Internal wiring is audiophile quality from the best
manufacturers of silver conductor wire, and connections are point to
point, soldered with silver solder. Cabinets are flawlessly finished
with authentic wood veneers, giving each loudspeaker the patina of fine
furniture. The result is a beautiful piece of furniture, and
sounds to satisfy the most demanding music lover. The systems
are all completely hand made, and right here in the USA.
So at this time Linn Audio
presents our most popular systems, the "Acropolis” and the
Athenaeum. These units are designed for the
best possible sonic performance available today, with
both these systems being the best choice for use with
tube type amplifiers, since they have exceptionally
high sensitivity, more so than probably any other speaker system
available on the market today.

and other systems found on the navigation bar "Speakers" above.
