The KATAN loudspeaker is an attractive, compact,
two-way bass reflex loudspeaker designed for stereo
and multi-channel applications. The KATAN offers
pitch-accurate sound quality with substantial power
handling.
The KATAN can be easily configured as a passive or an
AKTIV* loudspeaker. The input terminals on the rear of
the KATAN enable quick configuration either as a
single-wired passive loudspeaker; a bi-wired passive
loudspeaker; or as a bi-amped AKTIV loudspeaker. For
passive playback, the KATAN’s inputs connect to the
crossover and for AKTIV playback additional inputs
connect directly to the KATAN’s drive units. A choice of
reversible-link connection boards (patent pending) on
the rear of the KATAN automatically identify and
configure the appropriate input links for passive or
AKTIV playback requirements.
The KATAN offers superior and accurate performance
with Linn or other high performance component stereo
or multi-channel systems. The KATAN can perform as a
free-standing bookshelf, wall-mounted or standmounted loudspeaker.
The KATAN is available in attractive maple, white, black
ash and American cherry finish from qualified Linn
outlets world-wide.
