Experience digital music in unprecedented quality, from Studio Master recordings to the latest streaming services. Engineered without compromise, Klimax DS is one of the finest dedicated digital sources available and certainly the sleekest.

First introduced in 2007, this was the world's first truly high-end network music player, setting a benchmark that has stood the test of time. Now completely re-engineered with Linn's new Katalyst DAC Architecture, Klimax DS has raised the bar still further.

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

Every detail has been designed to optimise performance. The machined-from-solid aluminium enclosure has separate rooms for the circuit boards inside to protect the signal at every stage, while the analogue outputs are isolated from noise by dedicated, high quality transformers.

All Linn’s network music players are software upgradeable meaning new features, services and even performance upgrades will be made available to existing owners.

Every Linn network music player can be controlled by the things you already own. iPad or tablet, smartphone or laptop, or just the humble remote control, pick your favourite device and download the free app to control your Linn system. 

Anything you play through a Linn system can be shared around your home to other Linn DS players. Play the same track in every room, perfectly synchronised together, or select a different mood for each room in your home.

Add Klimax DS as an additional source to your separates system, or use it stand-alone using its on-board volume control. With Exakt Link on board, it's also ready for connection to a Linn integrated speaker or Exaktbox for the ultimate upgrade.
