Klimax DSM

Extracts the best performance from every music source

Combining ground-breaking digital streaming performance with inputs for your other sources, Klimax DSM offers unrivalled performance and flexibility.

Now featuring Linn's 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 a 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.
