Linn Space Optimisation
Every room has its own particular sound. When you’re investing in a world-class music system, why let your room have such a big say in what you hear? Remove the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment and reveal the true sound of the music.
Linn Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. It then precisely identifies frequencies that are artificially distorted by your environment, and reduces their energy, to reveal the music that would otherwise be hidden.
Whatever speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.
All Linn systems have Linn Space Optimisation built in, and it’s available as a free software upgrade to all Linn DS owners too!
Optimised for your chosen speakers
Your speakers play a key role in determining the behaviour of sound in your room. Because every speaker design is different, the sound from your particular speakers has a unique set of interactions with your surroundings.
Linn Space Optimisation models these interactions by taking account of the characteristics of your speakers, such as the position of each drive unit and the response of bass reflex ports.
Combining this information with the modelling of your room’s acoustics enables Linn Space Optimisation to optimise the sound uniquely for your chosen speakers.
Place your speakers where you want them
The interactions between your speakers and the boundaries of your room can dramatically distort the sound that you hear. For example, placing a speaker near to a wall will add energy to particular low frequencies, masking other areas of the music.
Until now, there has been a choice: place your speakers in the ideal location for sound, or choose a more practical location that compromises sound quality.
Ideal speaker placement for sound
Impractical for you and your family
Linn Space Optimisation is able to recreate the sound of the ideal location, from your preferred, practical location to give you the best of both worlds. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.
