Linn Amplifiers

The Power of Silence

Anyone can make a power amp that goes loud but only Linn's innovative engineering and meticulous attention to detail can deliver clean, precise power instantaneously, whenever the music demands it, without the noise, distortion and bulk of inferior designs.

Ultra-efficient, cool-running and responsive, Linn’s power amplifiers set the standard in high performance amplification.


Klimax Solo 800 - Ultimate Accuracy. Ultimate Consistency. Ultimate Efficiency.

Two Wrongs Can Never Make a Right. The process of assembling a high-end, hi-fi separates system is a subjective task beset with compromise. Speakers and electronics are switched out until a middle ground is found. Pairing an amplifier with an imperfect output, to a speaker with an imperfect response, results in two different approximations of accuracy which, when combined, kind of work together. Two wrongs, however, can never make a right…

With Klimax Solo 800, Linn have created a high-performance amplifier which avoids trial-and-error entirely; which can drive any given speaker optimally – under any conditions.

Power is Nothing Without Control, Klimax Solo 800 as a whole is the epitome of efficient, consistent, and accurate circuitry design.

Linn's unique combination of digital and analogue expertise has allowed them to optimise and linearise every internal stage of the amplifier to consistently produce exceedingly high performance.

Klimax Solo 800 features Linn's original Adaptive Bias Control technology. With it, the Klimax 800 establishes the ideal bias current for each of the amp’s sixteen output transistors dynamically and in real-time by measuring, sampling and digitising the current supplied to them.

A digital control loop then implements and persistently adjusts this optimum bias current for each individual transistor specifically; negating crossover distortion at any temperature – regardless of volume or demanding dynamic changes in music – for the entirety of the amp’s life.

Klimax Solo 800 features superb heat management; driving the most difficult of loads without compromising linearity or resorting to an internal fan.

Excellent heat coupling is achieved by mounting the amplifier and power supply circuitry directly to the critically efficient, large surface area heatsinks. This cool-running design is key to delivering exceptional clarity right up to 800W into 4Ω, and 1.2kW into 2Ω.

Temperature is minimised within the amp, ensuring that the properties of its internal components remain consistent during even the loudest and most demanding passages of music. It maintains consistency, efficiency and longevity at all times.

With Klimax Solo 800, Linn have created a superior-performance mono amplifier which can drive any given speaker optimally – under any conditions.

To achieve this, Linn's electronic engineers returned to first principles with their crosshairs trained on ‘consistency’ and ‘accuracy’ – because consistency and accuracy are key to pure, unadulterated, power amp performance.

It features novel and original technologies which combine to produce staggeringly low distortion measurements, with superb signal-to-noise ratio and incredible efficiency.

In a normal setup, one hears the accumulation of interactions between speaker and amp – a combination of non-ideal characteristics which result in artefacts heard in the music. Linn's focus on relentless minimisation of distortion within the amp, and unilaterally consistent output means that Klimax Solo 800 introduces negligible harmonics or background noise to the music signal.

Two wrongs can never make a right. Klimax Solo 800, though, can do no wrong. It just – consistently – does everything right.


Linn Klimax Solo

Effortless power from the ultimate monoblock amplifier, power amps don't get any better than this. Defying conventional thinking, Linn ditched the bulk and inefficiency of traditional amps in favour of a fresh approach when they developed their reference monoblock amplifier — and nearly two decades of continuous development have kept the Solo at the top of the tree.

The discrete bipolar design is unique to the Solo and uses Linn's famous Dynamik switch mode power supply to deliver 500 W of effortless, instant power across the entire frequency range.

Combine two Solos for truly exceptional stereo amplification or build the ultimate music system using individual Solos for each loudspeaker drive unit in a fully Aktiv set-up, connected to Klimax Exaktboxes.


Linn Klimax Chakra Twin

A recipe for stereo perfection, two channels of Linn's patented Chakra amplification, a machined-from-solid enclosure, and a Dynamik Power Supply make this Linn's highest performing stereo amplifier. In fact, only a pair of Klimax Solos can power your system more effortlessly.

Just like the Solo, the Twin uses a machined-from-solid enclosure not only to look good, but also to provide electrical and mechanical isolation between the audio and power supply boards. The Chakra topology offers significantly increased power, reliability and efficiency, with less heat and distortion than conventional designs.

Use one Twin for a passive stereo set-up, and add more Twins to multi-amp your speakers or upgrade to a fully Aktiv set-up, connected to Klimax Exaktboxes.


Linn Akurate Range

Available with 2, 3 or 4 channels, balanced or unbalanced versions, the Akurate range of power amplifiers deliver silent, cool-running and highly efficient power with even the most demanding music, delivering loud, complex passages and quiet interludes with equal precision.

Two, three or four channel models of this high quality, distortion-free amplifier are available, each featuring Linn's ground-breaking Dynamik Switch Mode Power Supply and 200 W version of their patented Chakra technology. So whatever the system set-up - be that stereo, multi-channel or multi-amp - you can enjoy high quality, distortion free and ultra-responsive amplification, now and in the future.


Linn Akurate Exaktbox-I

Integrated Exaktbox and power amplifier

Upgrading your speakers to Exakt also means running them actively, so you'll need enough amps to dedicate a channel to every drive unit. With Akurate Exaktbox-I you can upgrade to Exakt with all the amplification you need, all in one go. It's the ideal one-box Exakt upgrade.

Combining all the benefits of Exakt with Katalyst and 8 channels of 100 W Chakra amplification, this amazingly versatile unit is capable of upgrading any Exakt-compatible speaker, up to 4-way. Connected using Exakt Link, it's the ideal partner for any of the DSM hub range.

If your current Linn DSM or DS player doesn’t feature Exakt Link, contact us for the range of upgrades on offer designed to bring it up to the latest specification.

Linn Majik Range

The Linn Majik power amplifier range offers cool-running, reliability and high efficiency, Majik amplifiers are ideal for use in stereo or multi-channel systems, featuring the 100 W version of Linn's patented Chakra technology and ground-breaking Dynamik Switch Mode Power Supply.

Majik power amplifiers are available in five models (two, three, four, five, or six channels) letting you add all the amplification you need without the extra boxes. Create the perfect surround sound set-up or upgrade to a fully Aktiv Majik or Exakt system and experience incredible control and precision.


Start simple then upgrade

Let your music system grow and evolve. Choose your performance level and power, start with two channels then upgrade from there.

Adding extra channels of amplification is a great way of upgrading your system's performance, whether you're simply bi-amping your speakers or using a channel per drive unit for the ultimate upgrade with Exakt.

Chakra Technology

Patented amp technology combines the speed and precision of monolithic chip with the robustness and smoothness of bi-polar transistors. Chakra constantly adapts by using a monolithic at low currents and bi-polar transistors at higher levels. It's a unique approach to transition between these technologies, guaranteeing precisely-controlled clean, silent power at all listening levels.

Powered by Linn Dynamik

Linn developed their own switch-mode power supply to generate stable, low noise power rails in a compact, cool-running package -critical to the performance of an amp.

Dynamik is the latest evolution, with higher mains noise isolation, more power and faster response; clearly outperforming bulky and noisy conventional power supplies.

All Linn power amps are designed to be efficient even when not in use. Auto signal-sensing detects the presence of an audio signal and minimises power consumption by reverting to sleep mode when inactive, while fault detection and protection mechanisms help safeguard your system against short circuit or excessive load damage.
