Linn Klimax Exakt System
The Klimax Exakt System is a revolution in hi-fi, putting the source in the speaker.
Exakt builds on Linn DS to radically improve the performance of music systems by pushing the lossless digital path all the way to the speaker, keeping the signal digital and only converting to analogue at the last possible stage.
Comprising Klimax Exakt DSM digital music player and Klimax Exakt 350 speakers, the Klimax Exakt system produces the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist, working together to produce the most faithful sound yet.
The result not only sets a new benchmark in performance, but also offers an entirely new level of system optimisation, meaning every Exakt system can be personalised to you and your home.
Klimax Exakt DSM
The Klimax System is the best way to listen to music at home. It comprises a Klimax Exakt DSM network music player which lets you connect all your sources and make everything you listen to sound better. Partnered with Klimax Exakt 350 speakers, this system produces the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist.
Browse your music library using an iPad for the best experience, choosing albums by cover and creating playlists with your favourite songs or tracks. Get instant access to new music via internet radio and listen to any online music services on a music player which puts quality first.
Anything connected to an Exakt DSM is transmitted perfectly to an Exakt speaker via the Exakt Link, using a single digital cable. With analogue and digital inputs, you can connect any movie, games or audio source and make it sound incredible.
Klimax Exakt 350 Loudspeakers
The Klimax system combines Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 speakers via an Exakt Link for the most direct connection ever made between you and the artist.
Klimax Exakt 350 takes integrated Aktiv to the next level — now the source is in the speaker. Fed by a single digital input, the on-board digital crossover in each Klimax Exakt 350 delivers six independently controllable channels, each with its own volume control, DAC and power amplifier.
Exakt technology enables us to completely eliminate magnitude and phase distortion, correct for drive unit variation, and optimise your speakers for your room.
Hear your music, not your room
Every room has its own particular sound. When you’re investing in a world-class music system, why let your room have such a big say in what you hear? Remove the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment and reveal the true sound of the music.
Space Optimisation uses sophisticated acoustic modelling to build up a complete picture of how your speakers, their placement, and the unique characteristics of your room interact to affect the sound you hear. It then precisely identifies frequencies that are artificially distorted by your environment, and reduces their energy, to reveal the music that would otherwise be hidden.
Whatever speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.
All Linn systems have Space Optimisation built in, and it’s available as a free software upgrade to all Linn DS owners too.
Optimised for your chosen speakers
Your speakers play a key role in determining the behaviour of sound in your room. Because every speaker design is different, the sound from your particular speakers has a unique set of interactions with your surroundings.
Space Optimisation models these interactions by taking account of the characteristics of your speakers, such as the position of each drive unit and the response of bass reflex ports.
Combining this information with the modelling of your room’s acoustics enables Space Optimisation to optimise the sound uniquely for your chosen speakers.
Designed to work with whatever brand of speakers you choose.
Place your speakers where you want them
The interactions between your speakers and the boundaries of your room can dramatically distort the sound that you hear. For example, placing a speaker near to a wall will add energy to particular low frequencies, masking other areas of the music.
Until now, there has been a choice: place your speakers in the ideal location for sound, or choose a more practical location that compromises sound quality.
Space Optimisation is able to recreate the sound of the ideal location, from your preferred, practical location to give you the best of both worlds. Now you can place your speakers exactly where you want them and still enjoy great performance.
Optimised for your custom environment
The characteristics of your room affect the sound you hear. Sound waves reflecting off your walls, ceiling and floor create peaks of increased energy at specific frequencies. Construction materials, furnishings and features like doors and windows, also affect how much energy is reflected, and the length of time it takes to decay.
Space Optimisation allows your Linn Specialist to identify the precise frequencies affected and reduce their energy by just the right amount, removing the distorting effect of your room to reveal the true sound of the music.
Design your home the way you want to and enjoy a performance that’s optimised for you.
Linn's Exakt systems deliver an enhanced version of this technology: Space Optimisation+
Exakt incorporates the measured response of every individual drive unit. It enables even more advanced speaker modelling that’s specific, not just to the model of speaker, but to the unique pair of speakers in your home.
This advanced approach to speaker modelling means Space Optimisation+ can apply a far greater level of precision when optimising the sound, personalised for your particular speakers.
