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 over 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.
Use a pair of Solos for a passive stereo set-up, and add more Solos to multi-amp your speakers or upgrade to a fully Aktiv set-up, connected to Klimax Exaktboxes.
- Single channel power amp
- 500 W output power (into 4 Ω)
- Discrete bipolar design developed specifically for Klimax Solo
- Specific Dynamik Power Supply design
- Precision-engineered enclosure machined from solid aluminium
- Separate 'rooms' for power and audio circuit boards provide electrical and mechanical isolation
- Energy saving automatic signal-sensing circuitry
- Fault detection and protection against excessive loads
Patented amp technology combines the speed and precision of monolithic chip with the robustness and smoothness of bi-polar transistors.
Chakra constantly adapts by using a monolithic at low currents and bi-polar transistors at higher levels. It's a unique approach to transition between these technologies, guaranteeing precisely-controlled clean, silent power at all listening levels.

We have been creating our own switch-mode power supplies for decades – to generate stable, low noise power in a compact, cool-running package. This electrical cleanliness is critical to amplifier performance.
Dynamik ensures superb isolation from mains-borne noise, formidable power and responsiveness; clearly outperforming bulky and noisy traditional power supplies.
All Linn power amps are designed to be efficient even when not in use. Auto signal-sensing detects the presence of an audio signal and minimises power consumption by reverting to sleep mode when inactive, while fault detection and protection mechanisms help safeguard your system against short circuit or excessive load damage.
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.Learn more
