Linn Banner


Founded by Ivor Tiefenbrun in 1973, Linn was born from one man’s belief that he could vastly improve the sound quality of his music system at home, using precision-engineering and determined experimentation.

Their first-ever product, the modular and upgradeable Sondek LP12, revolutionised the hi-fi industry by demonstrating the huge musical difference a superbly engineered turntable could make to any hi-fi system.

Its demonstrable ability to extract more music from the grooves of a record than the standard of the day led to the step-change in doctrine that the source component in a system, and not the loudspeakers, mattered most.

Over fifty retrofittable mechanical and electrical upgrades to its original design, over the last five decades, have ensured that Sondek LP12 remains the performance benchmark in vinyl playback through to present day.

Since 1973

They are now into their sixth decade of designing, engineering and manufacturing systems that deliver exceptional detail and emotional impact.

Linn picked up their fair share of awards over that period – because they have consistently been pushing the boundaries of technology in the pursuit of breathtaking sound.

From their very first product, Sondek LP12, they have been at the forefront of home audio.

They don’t just embrace technology for technology’s sake, though.

Everything they do has to answer one simple question: does this bring you closer to your music?

In a world of planned obsolescence, they staunchly do the opposite.

Ther hardware is modular and their software upgradeable.

That means the best possible sound not just today, but for the lifetime of the product.

So when technology improves, so can your enjoyment.
