Ausstattungsliste: Linn Kinos
Derived from Linn’s flagship Kisto System Controller, Kinos gives outstanding audio performance from stereo or surround-sound music, making the most of your music collection and bringing you the benefit of improved sound quality from high-resolution formats such as Studio Master, Super Audio CD or DVD-Audio.
Supporting stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 processing, Kinos is also the perfect solution for the finest home-theatre systems. It precisely decodes and processes a comprehensive range of surround-sound formats, including Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II, AAC Surround, MPEG Surround, DTS Surround, DTS 96/24, DTS CD, DTS ES Matrix and Discrete and DTS Neo:6. Kinos supports both PAL and NTSC and Composite, Component (YPbPr), RGB and S-Video.
When Kinos is used with Linn’s Unidisk multi-format disc players, an RS232 link can be used to enable automatic pre-selection of the most appropriate decoding algorithm or analogue channels, determined by the disk type being played. Kinos can also be programmed to control other elements of your system for the complete home-theatre experience. Your projector comes to life, the screen drops into place, the lights dim and the popcorn maker springs into action, all from the touch of a button.
Concealed sockets on the front panel provide a user-friendly, quick access solution for less frequently used products, for example, a games console, video camera or headphones. Kinos also benefits from ‘silent power’ delivered by a Linn Switch Mode Power Supply. Where conventional power supplies operate through the standard audio bandwidth, Linn high-frequency Switch Mode Power Supplies instead convert power at frequencies well outside the audio bandwidth ensuring the audio signal is unaffected by this conversion and all you hear is the music.
The Kinos system controller is designed and precision-engineered to complement other Linn components and makes a perfect partner for Linn DS players, Akurate power-amplifier range and the Akurate loudspeaker range. Add more power amplifiers with internal Aktiv cards to enjoy the improved performance of an Aktiv system. Kinos is available in a choice of silver and black finishes.
