Linn, the Glasgow-based high-end audio specialist, has unveiled Series 3, an all-in-one wireless speaker – what it calls “the embodiment of five decades of audio innovation”.
Launching in its brand-new flagship showroom in Harrods, Linn claims that the Series 3 “exudes elegance in every way”, but in addition, it boasts it is the world’s “best sounding” wireless speaker.
Gilad Tiefenbrun, Linn Managing Director, said: “Series 3 is the culmination of nearly 50 years of audio innovation and Scottish precision engineering, driven by our unwavering passion for music. Offering high performance audio quality combined with the convenience of wireless, Series 3 will change expectations of what wireless speakers are capable of. Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, your own music collection… wherever your music comes from, Series 3 will make you fall in love with it all over again.”
Using Linn’s own patented Exakt technology, first developed for its flagship Klimax System, Series 3 helps to ensure that music can be enjoyed as the same natural sound as was recorded by the artist.
Every Series 3 is hand-built at the Linn factory in Scotland. The speaker can be controlled directly from a phone or tablet, from the six smart buttons on top, or using voice command when connected to a voice assistant. There’s a Linn control app for browsing and discovering new music through high resolution streaming services such as Tidal and Qobuz, as well as support for Apple AirPlay, Spotify, Roon, Bluetooth and 24-bit high-resolution audio. It also has HDMI ARC for those choosing to improve the sound of their TV.
Launching with a ‘Harrods Exclusive’ gold grille, Series 3 is also available with a chrome grille in-store.
Series 3 will be available through the wider Linn network of specialist retailers from 2020.
