Linn Announces New Distribution Partnership for New Zealand
Scottish brand Linn has been at the forefront of precision engineered and hand-built music systems since 1973. It continues to enjoy success with the resurgence of vinyl, but the company is equally renowned today for its abilities in digital and streaming.
In fact, Linn was one of the first audio manufacturers to introduce digital music streaming using a home network approach. They've also delivered breakthrough technologies like Space Optimisation and Exakt. One could also say that it is a brand that has adapted to the changing market and continues to reinvent itself over its nearly 50 years in business.
When you invest in a Linn product, you are buying a skillfully crafted piece from its Glasgow factory, bearing the name of the person who made it. It's built with precision and pride, designed for the future and engineered to extraordinarily tight tolerances. Every product is rigorously tested before it leaves the Linn factory to ensure that it delivers outstanding performance today and into the future.

After 38 successful years representing Linn in New Zealand with the great care and passion the brand deserves, Dean Harnish and John Ellingham have handed over the reins to the incoming distributor, N.A. Distributors.
N. A. Distributors was formed in 1987 and proudly represents premium home entertainment brands. In their own words, “we focus on products that delight music-lovers and bring them closer to their music collections”.
Chris Murphy, Director of N.A. Distributors told StereoNET:
We're thrilled to represent Linn in New Zealand, and to be working with a proud Scottish company that creates innovative, interesting products. The brand and its people bring passion, honesty, dedication and a deep love of music to their business, closely matching our own team.
The Linn product ranges will be available across New Zealand from specialist retailers that have been handpicked for their energy and enthusiasm, technical expertise, and great customer service. Dean Harnish and John Ellingham will also continue to offer their expertise and support as Linn retailers.
