Designed for music lovers, the Akurate Kontrol preamplifier delivers compelling performance in stereo and can process and control multi-channel sources, providing scope for system expansion to multi-channel in the future. Up to six stereo analogue sources can be connected, including a turntable via the on-board MC / MM phono stage, for exceptional audio performance. The high quality DACs incorporated facilitate performance from any digital source connected, including a DVD player, satellite receiver or games console, through one of the six digital inputs. The Akurate Kontrol pre-amplifier digitally processes all major audio algorithms, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS, for multi-channel audio from stereo CD or multi-channel digital formats. The Akurate Kontrol features a built-in Knekt Line Driver and Line Receiver for full compatibility with a Linn Knekt multi-room audio system. Available in black or silver finish, the Akurate Kontrol pre-amplifier complements other components in the Akurate System.
