Linn Products announce game changing technology…Space Optimisation!

Posted by March 31st, 2015

Linn Products are proud to present one of the biggest steps forward the industry has seen in the past 10 years…Space Optimisation. Here at Cymbiosis, we have always told and demonstrated to our customers the effects that room interference has upon the sound of a system. Whether it is a television screen between the speakers glass patio doors reflecting sound into the room, or even speakers sticking out into the room, Space Optimisation from Linn helps to combat this.

With Space Optimisation, you can place your speakers wherever you want them, rather than where they traditionally sound best. This allows speakers to be placed up against walls, located in corners of rooms or even allow speakers to be located around existing furniture!


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.

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.

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.

We have heard how Space Optimisation can work for ourselves in our demonstration rooms and are excited to try it for ourselves at home. Space Optimisation is build into every Linn DS and works with a wide range of speakers including the full Linn and Kudos ranges and the Spendor A3, A5r and A6r with more being added continuously.

For more information regarding Space Optimisation, please contact our Digital Streaming expert Phil, who will be more than happy to assist in any questions, and if you have a Linn DS, try it out and let us know how you get on!
