Linn Klimax Exakt System
Linn Klimax Exakt - a new revolution in hi-fi, which has turned the loudspeaker into an intelligent, connected, software-upgradeable product.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In the home, the Exakt system is optimised to suit every individual’s room using powerful new Linn software and Linn specialist retailer 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 from ripcaster, priced at £50,000.
