Linn Klimax 500 Solo

New Linn patented “noiseless” “4-G” power supply and amplification circuitry

SKU
LINNKLIMAXSOLO
£8,850.00
  • Matching Aktiv crossover system available
  • Cool-running, sleek case in machined-from-solid aluminium isolates and screens the circuitry
  • Short, simple audio signal path design with resulting high density circuitry minimise electrical pickup
  • Includes new-technology reservoir capacitors the size of a thimble that provide better filtering than standard capacitors the size of a beer can
  • The overload protection for the switches can detect a potentially destructive condition and activate in < 0.5uS
  • Uses all surface mount technology with eight ultralinear bipolar output power transistors, taking maximum advantage of the inherent linearity of bipolars
  • To avoid having capacitors in the audio path the Klimax is direct coupled with a dc servo to minimise output offset voltage
  • Includes both single-ended and balanced inputs, easily selected by a switch on the back panel
  • Power supply operates with a mains input range of 90 - 253Vac
  • Automatic on/off - signal sensing circuitry detects the presence of an audio input signal, and reverts to standby when the signal is absent
  • ‘Line out’ socket facilitates multi-amplification
  • Two Neutrik Speakon 4 contact speaker sockets. Optional binding post version available
  • Dimensions (WxDxH): 250 x 355 x 60mm - 9kg
