Linn’s award in the Innovation category celebrates the success of the Scotland based company’s digital streaming technology- the Linn DS.
Approved by The Queen and following the recommendation of the Prime Minister, the Queen’s Award for Innovation recognises the “engineering prowess and passion for music embodied within Linn’s industry-leading range of DS systems.”
Linn were awarded the Royal Warrant in 2002 as providers of entertainment systems to the Royal Household.
Linn’s Managing Director, Gilad Tiefenbrun had the following to say about the award “Innovation is at the heart of Linn. We designed our DS platform from scratch, starting in 2004, and launching our first product, the Klimax DS, in 2007. Klimax DS immediately set a new performance benchmark in home music systems. Since then, we’ve released a full range of DS systems across the price spectrum, with all of them playing everything from mp3 to 24-bit Studio Master and making the music sound better. Our most recent updates let you play music wirelessly from computers and mobile devices, stream online music and movies, and connect everything in the modern living room through your Linn system.”
