Add 2 extra channels of amplification for free when you buy any Majik or Akurate power amplifier during Linn’s +2 promo this summer.

+2 means that, for a limited time, you can get a Majik 4100 for the price of a Majik 2100, or an Akurate 4200 for the price of an Akurate 2200, giving you +2 amplifier channels in each example.

Alternatively, if you’re thinking of buying an amplifier to go fully Aktiv, we’ll let you choose between the extra channels you need or free Aktiv cards…whichever saves you more money.

Classic Album Sundays and Linn share both a passion for music and an appreciation of the difference that great music played at high quality can make to your life.

Chopped up, compressed and played back on portable devices which limit what you hear, music is often pushed into the background, a soundtrack to work or commuting rather than the social, life-changing experience it deserves to be.

Classic Album Sundays and Linn provide an antidote to this worrying trend.

Anticipation has been rapidly building online since we announced the inspired return of a much-loved Linn technology with the new Majik Isobarik loudspeaker.

The original Linn Isobarik loudspeaker was released in 1973 - over 35 years later we bring you a modern interpretation which embodies all of our development experience since.

Majik Isobarik generates the same bass extension as a cabinet enclosure twice the size, by using twin bass drivers acting together to reduce distortion and generate greater levels of bass.

A new chapter is due to be written in Linn loudspeaker design with the inspired re-invention of a classic design.

Featuring a unique isobaric bass system which produces rich, deep bass from a relatively compact cabinet, Majik Isobarik is an ingenious reconstruction of a much-loved loudspeaker.

Launched in 1973, the original Isobarik loudspeaker featured twin bass drivers which acted in tandem to improve bass extension, a patented technique which went on to feature in Linn favourites such as Sara and Keltik.
