Combining exceptional digital streaming performance with inputs for your other sources, Klimax DSM offers performance and flexibility that’s second only to next-generation Klimax DSM.

Featuring our Katalyst DAC Architecture, digital sources are reproduced with extraordinary precision, 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, it's also an exceptional performance pre-amp.

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
