Klimax DSM

Extracts the best performance from every music source

Combining ground-breaking digital streaming performance with inputs for your other sources, Klimax DSM offers unrivalled performance and flexibility.

Now featuring our Katalyst DAC Architecture, digital sources are reproduced with greater precision than ever before, giving you greater insight into all of your music. And with transformer isolation for analogue connections, a distortion-free volume control and silent source switching, its performance as a pre-amp is second-to-none.

Like the rest of the Klimax range, Klimax DSM is housed in our machined-from-solid aluminium enclosure, with dedicated rooms for the circuit boards inside isolating the signal from noise at every stage.

With Exakt Link on board, it's also ready for connection to a Linn integrated speaker or Exaktbox for the ultimate upgrade

TURNTABLES

 

45 Years on: The LP12 Revolution Continues.


Unmatched over four decades, the LP12 is still the pinnacle of record player design. A revolutionary icon that’s still evolving. Intelligent, upgradeable and built to the highest standards, our speakers don’t follow the conventional path. Choose the elegance of an integrated speaker with amps and Exakt technology hidden on board, or start passive and upgrade using separates to the ultimate in performance.

Klimax LP 12

 

Best of the best

Our flagship Klimax LP12 turntable offers the pinnacle of vinyl reproduction today, setting the benchmark worldwide for all other turntables on the market.

Over 45 years' worth of research and development has gone into this latest evolution of the turntable that turned the hi-fi industry on its head back at the beginning of Linn's journey to make better sound. Each precision-engineered upgrade has uncovered more music from the depths of the record groove.

It includes the best of Linn's precision-engineered upgrades, and because it's modular, you can update it whenever we release a new upgrade. A Klimax LP12 is an investment that will amaze and reward you for years to come.

Cartridges

Kandid is our best moving coil (MC) cartridge yet, designed to extract as much musical detail from your vinyl records as possible.

The first thing you’ll notice about Kandid is that the motor housing is exposed. With no cartridge housing potential sources of resonance are removed, resulting in purer, cleaner sound, making all your vinyl sound better than ever.

We’ve also kept the weight of the cartridge down by using a plastic front yoke screw rather than metal. As well as allowing the counterweight to be moved closer to the bearing point which gives a quicker reaction to changes in the vinyl, using a plastic screw eliminates any magnetic interference to the delicate coils in the cartridge.

Another notable innovation in Kandid is the angle of the mechanical body and the tracking angle of the cantilever which have also been moved from 23° to 20°. This means that when it’s placed under tracking force on the LP surface, the flux lines remain symmetrical, ensuring that mechanical forces on the coils and iron core remain equal in all directions, avoiding any deformation.

Kandid uses the finest nude diamond Line Contact stylus and benefits from a ceramic boron cantilever for ultra low mass and extremely high rigidity. The suspension mechanism supports hand-wound coils secured in a high-precision rigid assembly, terminated with gold contacts on flying leads for superb signal transmission. The coils in the Kandid also feature an extra winding to increase output.

Kandid’s assembly structure has been designed to perfectly partner with the Linn Ekos SE tonearm. It is constructed around a machined-from-solid, 7075 aluminium alloy body for complete rigidity and includes our unique triple-point mounting system to ensure a more rigid and accurate coupling.

SPEAKERS

 

Linn speakers think differently

Intelligent, upgradeable and built to the highest standards, our speakers don’t follow the conventional path. Choose the elegance of an integrated speaker with amps and Exakt technology hidden on board, or start passive and upgrade using separates to the ultimate in performance.

Akubarik

Integrated Exakt Speaker

Akubarik combines beautiful styling with advanced electronics, offering stunning clarity and precision that will reignite your passion for music.

Encased within an elegantly curved and ultra-low resonance cabinet, the Akubarik speaker is fed a single digital input from any Exakt-enabled Linn networked music player. The on-board digital crossover in each speaker delivers five independently controlled channels, each with its own volume control, DAC and power amplifier.

Our Katalyst DAC Architecture takes unprecedented control of the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal's creation, giving you a deeper insight into your favourite music.

The Linn 3K driver array then delivers fantastically clear mid and high frequencies throughout your room, while the Isobarik bass system delivers power and musicality in the lowest frequencies without the need for a larger cabinet or separate sub-woofers.

Power Amps

The Power of Silence

Anyone can make a power amp that goes loud but only Linn's innovative engineering and meticulous attention to detail can deliver clean, precise power instantaneously, whenever the music demands it, without the noise, distortion and bulk of inferior designs.

Ultra-efficient, cool-running and responsive, Linn’s power amplifiers set the standard in high performance amplification.

 

Klimax Solo

Effortless power from the ultimate monoblock amplifier

Power amps don't get any better than this. Defying conventional thinking, Linn ditched the bulk and inefficiency of traditional amps in favour of a fresh approach when we developed our reference monoblock amplifier — and nearly two decades of continuous development have kept the Solo at the top of the tree.

The discrete bipolar design is unique to the Solo and uses Linn's famous Dynamik switch mode power supply to deliver 500 W of effortless, instant power across the entire frequency range.

Combine two Solos for truly exceptional stereo amplification or build the ultimate music system using individual Solos for each loudspeaker drive unit in a fully Aktiv set-up, connected to Klimax Exaktboxes.

https://www.linn.co.uk/speakers-and-amps/power-amps/klimax

Klimax Twin

A receipe for stereo perfection. Effortless power from the ultimate monoblock amplifier.

Two channels of Linn's patented Chakra amplification, a machined-from-solid enclosure, and a Dynamik Power Supply make this our highest performing stereo amplifier. In fact, only a pair of Klimax Solos can power your system more effortlessly.

Just like the Solo, the Twin uses a machined-from-solid enclosure not only to look good, but also to provide electrical and mechanical isolation between the audio and power supply boards. The Chakra topology offers significantly increased power, reliability and efficiency, with less heat and distortion than conventional designs.

Use one Twin for a passive stereo set-up, and add more Twins to multi-amp your speakers or upgrade to a fully Aktiv set-up, connected to Klimax Exaktboxes.
