Klimax DSM

Extracts the best performance from every music source

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

Now featuring our 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 our 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.

Space Optimisation
Space Optimisation

Space Optimisation

Every Linn network music player has Space Optimisation built-in.

Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. Whatever speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.

Exakt
Exakt

Exakt

Exakt technology preserves the natural sound of every instrument by synchronising the elements that make up every note, including all the harmonics.

Available through the addition of a Linn integrated speaker or Exaktbox to your system, it uses Exakt Link to connect to your Linn DSM player. All current Klimax, Akurate and Majik models have Exakt Link connections on-board, ready for the ultimate system upgrade.
