Linn Klimax DSM
Extracts the best performance from every music source
Combining the ground-breaking digital streaming performance of Klimax DS with inputs for your other sources, Klimax DSM offers unrivalled performance and flexibility.
Now featuring our Katalyst DAC Architecture, digital sources are reproduced with greater precision than ever before, 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, its performance as a pre-amp is second-to-none.
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.

Katalyst DAC Architecture
Our 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.
