NEW Linn Klimax with Katalyst DAC Architecture

10th Oct 2016

Linn Products has unveiled a dramatic improvement to it’s flagship Klimax source products – DS and DSM in Katalyst – Linn’s 4th generation DAC architecture.

Linn DAC timeline:

1991 – Numerik   ♦   1998 – CD12   ♦   2007 – Klimax DS   ♦   2016 – Katalyst

Katalyst DAC Architecture performs digital-to-analogue conversion with greater precision than ever. 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.

The latter is vitally important because, at the point of creation, the analogue audio signal is particularly vulnerable even to miniscule variations in the Reference Level, which cause irreversible damage. Katalyst’s high-stability input Reference Level eliminates variations during analogue signal creation, giving you a deeper insight into your music.

We have Klimax ‘before and after Katalyst’ sources here for comparative dem – a simply must hear for ALL Linn owners. Call us on 0141 221 0221 or email to book a demo.

“Sonos has become the byword for multiroom, wireless audio and in the PLAY:5 it has found a champion worthy of the acclaim.”
