The Klimax System is a revolution in hi-fi, putting the source in the speaker. Exakt technology builds on Linn DS to radically improve the performance of music systems by pushing the lossless digital path all the way to the speaker, keeping the signal digital and only converting to analogue at the last possible stage.
Comprising Klimax Exakt DSM digital music player and Klimax Exakt 350 speakers, the Klimax system produces the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist, working together to produce the most faithful sound yet.
The Klimax System also features Space Optimisation+ technology to optimise performance for your unique listening environment, so every system is personalised for you.
‘…a highly refined, upbeat and involving sound system with quite exceptionally informative, deep and powerful bass, calibrated to your room and your seating location therein.’
HiFi Critic, June 2014

Klimax Exakt 350 takes integrated Aktiv to the next level — now the source is in the speaker. Fed by a single digital input, the on-board digital crossover in each Klimax Exakt 350 delivers six independently controllable channels, each with its own volume control, DAC and power amplifier.
