Linn Klimax DS

Linn's best dedicated digital streaming source.

Experience digital music in unprecedented quality, from Studio Master recordings to the latest streaming services. Engineered without compromise, Klimax DS is the best dedicated digital source available.

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 our Katalyst DAC Architecture, Klimax DS has raised the bar still further.

Every detail has been designed to optimize performance. The machined-from-solid aluminum 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.

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.
