Hear the unique story of next-generation Klimax DSM directly from its creators.

Your space. The final frontier.

Any music system risks being compromised by the shape of the room it lives in. Until now. Our pioneering Space Optimisation technology removes the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment to reveal the true sound of the music.
