Linn Launching Exakt.Design at HIFIWIGWAM 2017
Hi everyone. For those of you who are not already aware, Linn will be exhibiting at the HIFIWIGWAM Show this year to introduce Exakt.Design (https://exakt.design). Exakt.Design allows you to design your own Exakt Crossover for a loudspeaker of your choosing - whether that be improving the performance of an existing loudspeaker, or designing your own.

Your Exakt Designs can be deployed and run in any Exakt Engine. In addition to the Linn Exaktbox, we are keen to support, and would like to gauge interest in, alternative platforms such as a VST plugins and foobar2000 components.

Exakt.Design is currently invite only, and attendees of the show will receive an exclusive invite.

At the show we will be giving demonstrations, and running workshops for those who are interested in a more hands-on walkthrough of the app.

Our session timings are as follows:

Saturday 18th March (preview for exhibitors only)
  • 15:00 - 15:30 Demonstration
  • 15:45 - 16:45 Workshop

Sunday 19th March (open to all show attendees)
  • 10:15 - 10:45 Demonstration
  • 11:00 - 11:30 Demonstration
  • 11:45 - 12:30 Workshop
  • 13:30 - 14:00 Demonstration
  • 14:15 - 14:45 Demonstration
  • 15:00 - 15:30 Demonstration
  • 15:45 - 16:30 Workshop


We have limited places so to avoid disappointment, please let us know if you are planning to attend by emailing hello@exakt.design.

Version for Hifi MDs: Linn put on a superb and professional suite of demonstrations at the exquisite and lifestyle venue that is the magnificent Scalford Hall. Potential customers were wowed by the technology. Both Keith and Phil Budd, in their best Harris tweed suits, were a credit to the company and behaved impeccably all weekend. They couldn't have been more polite to Linn customers. As the young guard, Robbie and Jim learned a lot this weekend about how to behave with restraint and respect when out among customers and are going to be great ambassadors for the company.

All non-MDs read here: It was good to see the engineering team at Scalford over the weekend - they got fully into the spirit of the show, as experienced by exhibitors and visitors alike. They had the full range of experiences - problems with the interaction with the room floor (perhaps Philbo will advise on how this was partially overcome?), curry, DIY speakers, beer, room getting warm and stuffy, lots of interaction with room visitors, Gilbert & Sullivan (?!?), beer, music, geeky natter, travelling a long way to spend a weekend with a load of bearded blokes well past their best, beer, tech talk, lack of sleep, shifting gear for other exhibitors, beer etc. etc. And, of course, when not playing music, you could find them in the bar. A splendid demonstration of how to integrate into the community.

Oh, and when marketing are not involved, pillars between speakers and stands CAN be satin black...

Here's a picture of the in-depth customer interaction in the meeting room (whiteboard, powerpoint and executive sparking water just out of shot). You can clearly see that Jim is drinking diet coke. Robbie's smoothy is on a nearby table.

There is a forum member in this shot, but unusually he's not drinking from a hip flask...

That's disgraceful behaviour in a serious customer focussed workshop session!

I notice the post time of 12:51 - that must've been about 51 minutes after getting up following the Sunday night curry session Smile

Nothing planned at the moment. If there are any developments on that front we would make a posting about it in the forums.

Is there going to be any documented process or information about this approach, I couldn't attend Scalford Hall, wedding anniversary trumps hifi!

There should be something on thewam.tv in the next couple of weeks. Philbo spent several hours in make-up before filming started.
