Description

Designed from the ground up, Klimax DSM is housed in an exquisite precision-machined new enclosure, providing vital acoustic isolation along with visual and tactile luxury.

The beating heart of the new Klimax DSM is Organik, the ground-breaking all-Linn DAC. With Organik DAC on-board, Klimax DSM sets a new benchmark in music streaming for the ultimate musical experience. Designed without compromise and manufactured entirely in-house, the home-grown all-Linn DAC combines FPGA processing with a discrete conversion stage, relentlessly optimised to work perfectly together as a system, enabling us to precisely control and optimise every stage of the digital to analogue conversion process for the first time.

Organik offers significantly lower noise and distortion, measuring better than anything Linn have achieved before. It expertly performs the digital to analogue conversion to achieve the most accurate re-creation of the original music signal, revealing even more of the tiny details that provide a closer emotional connection with the music.

Every aspect of the exquisite custom-designed enclosure plays a crucial role in preserving the original musical detail whilst providing visual and tactile luxury. Machined from solid, special grade aluminium, the striking design takes on a fresh new family look whilst retaining the distinguished and much-loved signature Klimax feel.

The beautiful dial designed for Klimax DSM is a badge of pride, a visible reflection of the attention to detail and incredible engineering that lies inside that extraordinary enclosure.

The screen acts like a mirror, clearly displaying key information when active but becoming essentially invisible when not in use.

The dial is a thing of beauty in its own right. Rendered in the highest quality materials, from the turned brass bearing celebrating its provenance whilst creating the smooth handling of the precision-cut glass, and the photo etched stainless steel surround that encases each of the 100 status lights.

Klimax DSM is available in 2 versions.
