The Linn Komri is a $40,000 per pair (USD) flagship high performance Full Range Monitor Loudspeaker designed for professional music mastering and other demanding audio applications. The Linn Komri incorporates innovative design features and is capable of exceptional openness and neutrality and a powerful and accurate bass performance. The Komri produces an extremely stable sound stage and sets new standards for high performance monitoring.
Each Linn Komri houses one VERY high frequency driver, one high frequency driver, one midrange driver, one upper-bass driver in an acoustic array and twin long-throw active bass drivers. The Linn Komri five-way full range design incorporates two Active Servo Bass System and Linn’s unique 4K Acoustic Mid-Treble Driver Array for pitch-accurate music reproduction and very high power handling, producing an enhanced stereo performance with ultra-low coloration across a 10Hz – 40khz frequency range and flat performance from 18hz-28khz.
The unique 4K acoustic array developed for the Linn Komri is a ground-breaking design, creating a single-point, highly defined acoustic center with uniform dispersion. The Komri’s unique 4K acoustic driver array consists of the two high frequency drivers and midrange driver closely bridge-mounted over the upper bass driver. The high frequency and mid-range drivers deploy newly developed soft-dome technology.
The twin bass response of the Komri is even and uniform to below 20Hz. Each bass drive system incorporates new Linn Active Servo Bass technology with internal bass amplification to minimize distortion.
The Komri 4K array is fed via a four-way passive crossover using the highest quality of air-cored, litz-wound inductors and polypropylene capacitors for minimum loss and distortion. To allow for variations in the size and characteristics of listening rooms, the roll-off characteristics of the Active Servo Bass System is adjustable via a soft-key control panel on the back of the Komri. The result is an exceptionally open and natural sound with an extremely stable sound stage.
The first release of the Komri with internal Active Servo Bass System and 4K acoustic array is a passive loudspeaker upgradeable to fully active. The Linn Komri Professional Monitor Loudspeaker is available in Black, Cherry and Maple finish options from authorized Linn Dealers worldwide.
