Exakt technology delivers a breakthrough in audio performance; the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist. It pushes the lossless digital signal path all the way to the speaker — eliminating noise and distortion.
Even the best analogue hi-fi systems suffer from loss at each stage of the signal’s journey. Analogue components introduce loss in two forms: noise and distortion.
Loss is inevitable at each analogue stage of the traditional hi-fi system
Exakt keeps the signal digital for longer and removes several lossy analogue stages. The sources of distortion and noise that were previously present in the player, pre-amp, crossover and analogue cables have now all been eliminated.
Exakt keeps the signal digital, right into the speaker
Exakt preserves the lossless digital signal perfectly all the way to the speakers, where the crossover and volume controls are now implemented in the digital domain. The signal is only converted to analogue at the final amplification stage — delivering the maximum amount of musical information to each drive unit.
In order to deliver the digital signal losslessly to the speaker, Linn developed a new protocol — Exakt Link — achieving what no existing standard could:
Accuracy of data transmission is fundamental to any data link as errors lead to inaccuracies in playback. Exakt Link has the ability to losslessly transmit 8 channels of 24-bit 192 kHz Studio Master.
Jitter has long been the enemy of pitch-accurate digital music reproduction because it impacts on musical timing. Exakt eclipses even our own market-leading DS performance by delivering a level of jitter almost half that of the Klimax DS. This ensures the timing of the music as it reaches your ears is better than ever.
Linn has led the field in high precision multi-room synchronisation through the development of our Songcast protocol. Synchronising speakers in the same room requires even greater precision. Exakt Link delivers digital synchronisation so precise that the variation in timing between speakers has been measured at just 25.4 pico-seconds, the time it takes for sound to travel less than 9 millionths of a millimeter. This extreme precision ensures you hear perfect timing from your speakers.
Exakt technology takes our Klimax and Akurate systems to another level. It eliminates magnitude and phase distortion in the crossover, corrects for drive unit variance and optimises your speakers for your home, meaning whichever Exakt system you choose, it’s personalised for you.
By combining the Klimax Exakt DSM digital music player with Klimax Exakt 350 speakers, the Klimax Exakt system produces the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist, setting a new benchmark in world class performance.View details
