it's all about the music

Klimax System

When Linn innovates, they start with the Klimax System. With no deadlines for their engineers, it’s ready when it produces the best possible sound. It features the best of everything Linn offers, in one complete, integrated package.

 

The Klimax System Hub gives you access to all your music whether it’s on your phone, on your home network, or in the cloud; while the Klimax 350 speakers house a suite of technology designed to produce unparalleled sound.

With sound quality beyond compare, sharp looks and impeccable build, this is as close to perfect as you can get. It’s not just the last music system you’ll ever need—it’s the last system you’ll ever want.

Klimax LP-12

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

 

Over 40 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.

Klimax Network Player

Klimax DSM

Excellence in listening

 

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

 

Now featuring the 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 a 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.

Klimax speakers

The Klimax 350 is the ultimate intelligent loudspeaker, featuring the best of Linn’s in-house technologies designed to eliminate loss between you and the artist.

 

Taking a digital signal as their input, the Klimax 350 ensures zero transmission loss from the source. Then the Katalyst DAC Architecture retrieves the maximum amount of musical information from this digital signal.

 

Exakt technology ensures the most natural sound ever, by aligning all the musical frequencies to arrive at your ear at the same time, exactly the way real musical instruments are experienced.

 

Because you’d expect the same incredible performance at all volume levels, the Klimax 350’s Dynamik power supply delivers 3000 W with speed and precision.

 

And while every room has its own effect on your music, Klimax 350 utilises the patented Space Optimisation technology to optimise performance based on the acoustic properties of your room and your desired speaker placement.

 

The result is the ultimate listening experience.

  • Ultra-low resonance, pressure-formed cabinet
  • Exakt technology built in
  • Connects via Exakt Link to any Exakt-enabled Linn network music player
  • 6 channels of amplification per speaker

Technologies

Space optimisation

All Linn systems have Space Optimisation technology built in. By removing the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment, it reveals the true sound of the music.

 

What's more, it optimises performance by taking account of where you position your speakers and the impact this has on the sound. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.

Exakt

Linn's latest systems use Exakt technology to preserve the natural sound of every instrument.

 

Until now, no speaker system has ever been able to synchronise all the elements that make up every note, including all the harmonics. Exakt ensures the perfect time alignment of every part of every note, so now you can enjoy the same natural sound that was recorded by the artist.

Katalyst

New DAC architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever.

 

Katalyst delivers the best digital-to-analogue-conversion by controlling the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal's creation.

Integrated Exakt Modules

Built-in to the rear of the cabinet is an intelligent, networked module that houses the Exakt electronics and amplifiers.

 

Connected to a Linn network music player using Exakt Link, the module is fed a digital signal, which is split by the Exakt digital crossover into the precise frequencies required for each drive unit. Exakt’s powerful processing ensures the perfect time alignment of every frequency played by each drive unit, preserving the natural sound of every instrument. Finally, 3000 watts of amplification provide power and precision in equal measure to the drive units and the whole module is suspension-mounted to acoustically isolate it from the cabinet.

Precisely Crafted Cabinets

Linn’s speaker cabinets combine master craftsmanship with advanced materials and manufacturing techniques to produce beautiful, high performance acoustic enclosures.

 

The complex laminated cabinet construction is pressure-formed to produce the distinctive curved design while providing an exceptionally rigid shell for the drive units to operate with minimised resonance. Carefully placed internal bracing provides added rigidity and an acoustically inert enclosure for stable mounting of the drive units.

3K Driver Array

Three drive units — mid, tweeter and super-tweeter — are housed in a single rigid, die-cast chassis.

 

By minimising the distance between drive units, a single-point sound source is created, which together with the acoustic ‘skoop’, produces exceptionally wide dispersion for precise and consistent high frequency performance throughout the room.

Aktiv Servo Bass System

Producing an accurate and musical performance from the powerful bass section of the loudspeaker requires precision and control.

 

Linn’s Aktiv Servo-Driven Bass system constantly measures the precise motion of each unit compared to the original input signal, and immediately corrects it to ensure that the output perfectly matches the input. The result is deep and powerful bass that is always musical.
