Linn Products managing director Gilad Tiefenbrun, and his father Ivor Tiefenbrun, founder and Chairman of company, have accepted the Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation from Guy Clark, Lord Lieutenant of Renfrewshire, in a handover ceremony which took place at Linn's Eaglesham based factory.
Linn received the accolade in April in recognition of the company's engineering prowess, and its success with the DS range of digital streaming products. As is the way with these things, the award was officially approved by Her Majesty The Queen following a recommendation from the Prime Minister.
Tiefenbrun declared: "We're delighted to receive this Queen's Award in recognition of our work. Innovation has been at the heart of Linn for the past 40 years and with our commitment to digital streaming, long will it continue." He added that the DS platform was designed from scratch in 2004. "Since then, we've released a full range of DS systems across the price spectrum. All of them play everything from mp3 to 24-bit Studio Master, and our most recent updates allow you to wirelessly connect everything in the modern living room through your Linn system." Digital streaming technologies now account for over 40 per cent of the brand's business, a success which it says has been helped by the introduction of services such as Spotify, YouTube and Netflix.
The event concluded with a private performance for staff by Linn
