Safety Information

Warranty Terms & Conditions

Linn Support Site


We recommend that your Dorik stands are unpacked, installed and adjusted by an authorised Linn retailer. To get the best from your loudspeakers, it is important that they are positioned and levelled correctly.

Please note, in order to achieve the very best from your system, some adjustment may be required after positioning, levelling and connecting. See the Fine adjustment section.

As this is an Exakt speaker the initial setup must be performed with a Local Area Network that has Internet access. Otherwise Konfig cannot set the speaker channel, Speaker profile and Space Optimisation of these products


IMPORTANT: The Dorik stands are heavy; take great care when moving them.

When unpacking, lifting or moving them, we recommend using two people to avoid personal injury.

  • Do not lay the loudspeakers on their front face as this will damage the loudspeaker.
  • We recommend that you retain the packaging in case you need to transport your loudspeaker(s) at a later date.
  • Take care when unpacking to avoid damage to the cabinets.

Move the (boxed) loudspeaker to an uncluttered, flat area adjacent to its eventual position (this will avoid any excessive moving and carrying of unpacked loudspeakers).

As with any stereo loudspeaker there are some fundamental principles which should be observed to get the best sound from your loudspeakers.

  • The loudspeakers should be place at an equal distance from the wall behind the loudspeakers.
  • The speakers should be a similar (not the same) distance from the walls to the outside of each loudspeaker.
  • Any toe-in applied should be the same for each loudspeaker.
  • The loudspeakers should be level with all four spikes in contact with the floor. Use Linn Skeets for hard floors.

For further assistance, try our customer support pages.


Screw the spikes into the corners of the stand.
Fit the lock nuts but do not tighten at this stage.


Very carefully (do not scratch the cabinet), use a spirit level to check if it is sitting level. If it is, gently rock the loudspeaker from front to back, side to side and diagonally to check for any movement. If none is present and the loudspeaker is sitting level, no adjustment to the spikes is necessary.

If the loudspeaker is not level, or moves when you rock it, loosen the appropriate lock nuts using the tool provided and use a screwdriver to turn the spikes to adjust their height. Adjust the spikes to level the speaker, using a spirit level placed on the stand.

Press down firmly on the top of the loudspeaker to ensure it is in close contact with your flooring.

Use the spirit level as before and continue to adjust the spikes as required.

Once the speaker is level and does not rock, use the screwdriver to hold the spike in place and fit and tighten the lock nuts with the spanner provided.

Note: To protect wooden or tiled floors, the spikes can be placed on Linn Skeets which are available from your Linn retailer.

  5. Connect respective (Bass or Mid or tweeter ot super-tweeter) Dorik stand connection to the Bass connection (Bass or Mid or tweeter ot super-tweeter) of the speaker.
  6. Power on the Dorik stand and play some Music. Check that you are only getting (Bass or Mid or tweeter ot super-tweeter) audio from that speaker drive unit.

KONFIG setup

(This version of Konfig will NOT work on MAC OSX Snow Leopard and these speakers CANNOT be configured with earlier versions on KONFIG)

The factory setting for the AkuDorik stand module has no speaker defined. This will mean that when you start playing music the speaker will be muted.

Use Konfig to configure the Dorik stand module to the attached speaker.

Select CHANGE to select a new speaker, such as Akurate 212, Dorik... etc

Enter the attached speakers' serial number that is fixed to that particular Dorik stand module. (This will allow Konfig to download the speaker measurements from the 'cloud' and setup the AkuDorik stand for the Exakt setting for that speaker)

If the Exakt DSM is in Standby, the Akudorik speaker is totally shutdown. No LED's or indicators are shown


When the Exakt DSM is brought out of Standby it will send trigger voltage and wake the speaker up. The LED's beside the Mains socket/Exakt link sockets will tell you the status. After approx 6seconds the Blue LED on the top of the speaker will illuminate stating "it's ready to party!"


If you have brought the Exakt DSM out of standby and you only get this LED then the speaker has no Mains power. Check the Mains lead is fully inserted into the speaker and the wall socket mains switch is ON.
