Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM

22 September 2016
<b>Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM<b/>

Linn Katalyst 4th Generation DAC Architecture Available Now in Klimax DS & Klimax DSM

Katalyst DAC Architecture is now featured in both the Klimax DS and Klimax DSM, raising the best network music players available to an even higher level of performance.

Linn’s new Katalyst DAC Architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever.

Katalyst takes an unprecedented level of control over the critical elements that lie at the heart of the analogue signal’s creation; offering improved Data Optimisation, superior Master Clock, independent Power Supplies, a new ultra-low distortion Output Driver and crucially, for the first time, a high-stability input Reference Level.

The latter is vitally important because, at the point of creation, the analogue audio signal is particularly vulnerable even to miniscule variations in the Reference Level, which cause irreversible damage.

Katalyst’s high-stability input Reference Level eliminates variations during analogue signal creation, giving you a deeper insight into your music.

Linn’s 4th Generation DAC Architecture:

1991 — Numerik

1998 — CD12

2007 — Klimax DS

2016 — Katalyst

How Katalyst improves on previous designs:

Katalyst delivers unparalleled precision thanks to five key areas of improvement:

1. Reference Level:

Now completely isolated from noise to produce a high-stability Reference Level voltage that generates the signal’s amplitude without variation.

2. Independent Power Supplies:

Independent, isolated power supplies are tailored for each process, so feedback from one process cannot influence the performance of another, resulting in far lower distortion.

3. Data Optimisation:

Linn-designed data optimisation stage that prepares the digital signal for conversion with greater accuracy, minimising errors right at the start of the process.

4. Master Clock:

A single high precision clock with its own independent power supply ensures greater timing accuracy throughout.

5. Output Driver:

The new ultra-low distortion analogue output driver prepares the delicate analogue signal for transmission out of the device, making it less susceptible to noise and degradation.

Upgrade to Katalyst:



If you already own a Klimax DS or Klimax DSM, you can take advantage of the biggest performance upgrade Linn ever released by adding Katalyst to your player.



Don’t just take our word for it - hear it for yourself.

Experience the best digital source ever produced by arranging a personal demonstration with us:

Linn Exakt: The Source is in the Speaker

17 October 2013

Introducing Exakt - a revolution in hi-fi, which has turned the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software-upgradeable product.

How Exakt works



What Exakt can do




Exakt, a ground-breaking, new Linn technology builds on Linn DS to extend the lossless digital path all the way to the speaker, keeping the signal digital and only converting to analogue at the last possible stage to ensure absolute accuracy of data, guaranteed low latency, extremely low jitter, and extreme precision synchronisation between speakers.

Introducing the new Klimax Exakt System

Linn has launched the Klimax Exakt System, comprising Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 Speakers.

Exakt combines and improves on three key Linn innovations – Source-First, Aktiv, and DS – to radically improve the performance of the music system.

Exakt is the most direct connection ever made between the listener and the artist. It sends digital data to an Exakt speaker losslessly to eliminate sources of noise, distortion and interference inherent in the traditional analogue hi-fi chain, meaning that a Studio Master file, or any other music source, is transmitted perfectly to the speaker.

Inside the Exakt Speaker is a digital platform that enables a whole new range of audio performance enhancing capabilities in design, manufacture and in the customer’s home.

Eliminates in Design In design, the intelligence built into Linn Exakt phase corrects every signal, eliminating the phase and magnitude distortion introduced by analogue crossovers, ensuring 100% accuracy in every single crossover.

Corrects at Manufacture In manufacture, physical variation between parts is inherent in even the most accurate processes, however Exakt measures and corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units, meaning every system that leaves the factory is guaranteed to perform exactly to its specification, guaranteeing a perfect speaker.

Optimised at Home In the home, the Exakt system is optimised to suit every individual’s room using powerful new Linn software and House of Linn's specialist expertise. The customer now has the flexibility to choose where they would like their system positioned to fit around their lives without compromising the sound they hear.

As with all Linn DSM players, all sources can be connected for improved performance. Even vinyl sounds better – there’s no better way to preserve the signal from an LP12 than Exakt. New ADC technology converts the delicate LP12 to digital and sends it losslessly to the speaker, better protecting the signal than any other solution. The Linn Klimax Exakt system is available now at House of Linn, priced at £50,000

Klimax Exakt System

Exakt Systems are uniquely built by Linn and available for both new and existing customers. The following systems are available:

Klimax Exakt System, comprising Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 speakers for new customers

Exakt upgrades for Klimax 350 and Artikulat owners, comprising a Klimax Exakt DSM, replacement 3K arrays and new Klimax Exakt modules for the customer’s speakers

Contact us for further information and to arrange a demonstration.

AKUBARIK AT HOUSE OF LINN

13 April 2013
<b>AKUBARIK AT HOUSE OF LINN</b>

40 years of Linn loudspeaker knowledge and expertise have been applied to produce Akubarik - a new Linn loudspeaker that stands apart from the crowd.

Akubarik includes a host of ground-breaking technical developments as well building on key technologies from the Linn reference Klimax 350A loudspeaker.

There are many aspects to Akubarik that make it a very special loudspeaker:

With Aktiv filters and Chakra power amplification all on one board, the circuit layout is optimised for the shortest signal path, eliminating interconnections and reducing noise.

Powered by the latest generation Linn Dynamik Power Supply, the loudspeaker is completely silent, thanks to efficient and passive cooling without the need for a fan.

3k Array Our unique 3K driver array houses the mid-range, tweeter & super-tweeter drive units close together to replicate a single point sound source with wide dispersion, ensuring great sound wherever you listen.

Isobarik Bass System

Linn have gone back to their roots with an isobaric bass system cleverly concealed in the lower section of the loudspeaker cabinet to produce lots of rich, deep bass within a surprisingly compact package.

Cabinet

Already being hailed the ‘Baby Klimax 350A’, Akubarik takes design cues from our reference loudspeaker. But the curves not only look beautiful, they’ve been designed with great sound in mind.

Finish Akubarik is available in 6 standard or high gloss wood veneer finishes as well as over 200 high gloss colour finishes.

House of Linn News Update June 2011 - Majik Isobarik at House of Linn.

04 June 2011
<b>House of Linn News Update June 2011  - Majik Isobarik at House of Linn.</b>

Linn Majik Isobarik Loudspeaker Now on Demonstration at House of Linn

We listened with a pre-production pair at the House of Linn Klimax Road Show in May and we were impressed with just how much Linn playback has moved on!

A perfect upgrade opportunity for owners of original Linn loudspeakers - Keilidh, Kaber, Ninka and the original Isobarik loudspeaker.

Twin ‘face-to-face’ bass drivers, mounted at the bottom of the cabinet are designed to produce very deep and controlled bass from a relatively compact enclosure.

Linn’s new Isobarik combines the 2K driver array, a new crossover design and a smart bass mounting solution that has enabled Linn to build what they claim is “a fantastic all-round loudspeaker”.

It is more than 35 years since Linn invented the original Isobarik loudspeaker. Breakthroughs in acoustic development and manufacturing have enabled Linn to bring back this legendary loudspeaker design, re-invented to meet the demands of today’s music.

Isobarik Aktiv

Pre-configured Isobarik Aktiv systems are available to customers to purchase at a special package price from House of Linn, for superior Isobarik Aktiv performance.

We have all variants on demonstration at House of Linn including Fully Aktiv.

Call us to arrange your demonstration.
