Sorry, but I don't get the sense of this 'naming' question as 1. Nobody will know it, and 2. the naming is already chosen.

A number of years ago, I predicted a replacement speaker from Linn for the 242’s, long before they were ever announced.

I started a thread on the Linn Forum, asking people what would be a good name for the replacement speaker for the 242’s.

Two different people came up with the suggestion “Akubariks’

Gilad told me at a later date that the thread had been influential in Linn naming the speakers Akubariks.  

I liked the name so much I bought a pair of Akubariks  😉

I did something very odd. I bought a pair of Akubariks because I liked the way they sounded.

That is very odd indeed. 😂

I was told I bought the first pair in North America, that had not gone to a dealer for demo.

I did not have a chance to listen to them, before I bought them

Maybe Atmospherik?  Unless that too adjacent to some gimmicky cinema standard.

Selekt" on the other hand is pretty ambiguous in comparison. It sounds as though it should be higher up the chain than Majik, but could just as easily be thought of as higher than Akurate.

I thought it was Selekt because you could select the configuration you wanted

The name doesn't suggest that although that may have been the intention. I read "select" as in " a select few",  "carefully chosen", "first rate".

If that was the intention then Konfiguration or Konstrukt would have been better!

 Or numbered (the 3 series)?

Series 3 with „Kustom DSM“:

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle! Series 3 it is. Different from Kustom though - perhaps the Kustom is the DSM end and Series 3 is a wireless speaker?

I think I deserve a prize for guessing right!

Great detective work 

So a new Kustom DSM and Series 3

Series 3 implies it is set at a price point under the series 5 speakers.

Kustom implies it is customizable and configurable, with upgrades and add-ons such as digital amps, surround modules and DAC upgrades.

It seems to be a more entry level system into the world of Linn, and wireless.
