Demonstrated for the first time in full-production specification at AES, the Linn 328A Monitoring Loudspeaker is the company's flagship reference loudspeaker.

Features include an acoustically optimized 3-K driver array; 2x8-inch servo-controlled bass driver, 2x 500W bass amplifiers with active crossovers, and 500W, 3-way active treble amplifier module with active crossovers. The unique Linn 3-K acoustic array (patent pending) is a precision-machined component housing an optimized and acoustically matched grouping of midrange, high-frequency and superhigh-frequency drive units. The 3-K array is mounted with an acoustically matched interface, ensuring uniform dispersion and single point-source accuracy. Linn's servo-controlled bass technology delivers accurate, extended and powerful low-frequency reproduction and ensures minimal distortion by measuring and comparing driver motion to the original audio signal and modifying power amplifier output to compensate for any bass driver nonlinearity. The company's "silent power" amplification, featuring Linn’s patented "noiseless" power amplification circuitry, and advanced active crossovers deliver precise control of individual drive units completing a cool-running, hum and buzz-free monitoring tool.

The Linn 328A is designed to be suitable for reference monitoring within larger control rooms in applications such as music recording, mixing and mastering, radio production, film post-production, and TV production and post-production. The contoured cabinet shape enables stable console-mounting where the console meter bridge is able to support the unit. Alternatively, the Linn 328A loudspeaker can be mounted immediately behind the console on stands. Setup involves a mains power cable and an input signal via a balanced XLR cable connection.

In other Linn AES new, , the Linn 318A Monitoring Loudspeaker is a compact precision four-way active powered loudspeaker that is designed for near-field applications. The Linn 318A delivers a flat and extended frequency response and has excellent power handling. Features include the acoustically optimized 3-K driver array, 8-inch servo-controlled bass driver, 500W bass amplifier with active crossover, and 500W, three-way active treble amplifier module with active crossovers.

In larger control rooms, the Linn 318A will augment main monitors in multichannel monitoring installations, and is designed to perform freestanding, either on the console meter bridge or mounted on stands.
