Linn's top range of DS players, control, power amplifiers and loudspeakers
 

Klimax DS and DSM - a new era

 

Klimax DS (DSM) is simply an extremely elegant, compact, pre-eminent digital source
(a /1 suffix means revision 1 : improved further, with re-engineered audio boards). 
Whilst some people obsess over 32bit/384kHz/DSD512! and exotic powered cables to link
their playthings together, Klimax eschews all that for aesthetic and musical superiority.

Music is securely ripped and stored digitally, uncompressed on a separate NAS device.
Controlled by smartphone or tablet, music is streamed to the Linn DS/DSM which, using
deep magic, converts it into breathtakingly pristine audio.  No other discussion.  End of.

So we too -

   - even our pickiest Clients are pleased to agree!

DSM essentially means DS + pre, adding other inputs including HDMI; importantly,
Linn's refined ADC section cradles analogue inputs too - even LP12's Kandid via Urika.
DSMs now bring exceptionally compelling performance to TV, BluRay, even Games.

Exakt extends Linn's digital realm to the speakers and your room - see below...

Klimax DS must handover its analogue output to a separate preamp like Klimax Kontrol.
Klimax DSM/1's onboard preamp now actually surpasses Kontrol - it had to happen! 
There used to be a volume level below which the Kontrol was preferred, but advances
eroded the difference and improved even further - stunningly real against black silence.

Many hi-res 192kHz tracks are now available (e.g. Linn Studio Master, HDtracks)
for exhilerating, unsurpassed lifelike reproduction with endless music and easy control,
and Linn's control app Kazoo can also easily link to TIDAL high quality streaming .

 

AND NOW...

  available at Klimax and Akurate levels.

In brief, Linn have extended the digital realm to do the work of (and upgrade) speaker
crossovers and also offer effective DSP correction for the room and speaker positioning.

Speakers like Klimax Exakt 350 & Exakt Akubarik incorporate the Exakt engine and amps
internally; other speakers such as Linn Komri, Keltik, etc... can use 1 or 2 Exaktboxes
(digital versions of Tuneboxes for aktiv speakers) with your chosen amplifiers placed
close to the speakers. Note: to use Exakt, you must use Exakt Link outputs from Exakt-
compatible DSMs into Exakt speakers or Exaktboxes.  If in doubt, please ask us.

I've heard that jitter is again lowered, besides the DSP advances.  ALL who audition the
Exakt 350 experience surprisingly significant improvements over the already-superb aktiv
Klimax 350A system.  But it doesn't stop there: Clients with much older aktiv Keltik
speakers are shocked at the massive improvement Exakt brings to them (even using
an Akurate-level Exaktbox)!

Exaktboxes (Akurate 10-channel, Klimax 6-channel) permit use of non-Linn power amps.
The Exakt engine within each box is programmed using Linn software to suit your
loudspeaker model (and so can be reprogrammed for a new model) - Linn will extend this
to cover popular non-Linn speakers... such as the top B&W models... stay tuned.

Whatever actual system components you may choose...

(here only as a guideline, as there's international variation due to freight, Duty & local tax considerations:
Klimax EDSM+E350 ~£46K,  Akurate EDSM+E.Akubarik ~£23K,  Akurate EDSM+E.Akudork ~£16K)

...Avalon are ready to propose a very competitive total price + comprehensive support.
