Perfection in a box, at Loud & Clear now: next generation Klimax DSM

1973:  Sondek LP12 begins the hi-fi revolution

2007:  Original Klimax DS – the first high performance digital music streamer

2021:  Next generation Klimax DSM – the new benchmark

We are thrilled beyond measure to be the first retailer on the planet to get our hands on the world’s new reference music streamer. We are a Linn Klimax retailer, authorised LP12 dealer, we sell bucket loads of Linn products, have all the kit on demo in the shop, heck four of us even used to work at Linn, but this is still an unprecedented honour.

Collected this morning at Linn HQ, we have opened the box, we have ooh-ed and aah-ed at its stunning looks and feel and most importantly we have now listened to new Klimax DSM. Believe the hype.

Breathtaking sound, extreme engineering, sublime musicality, exquisite design. Words cannot do justice to next generation Linn Klimax Organik DSM – the ultimate digital player.

Here are our first impressions…


First impressions? Outstanding.

Exquisitely machined and built; luxurious touch, feel and look; elegant styling lines that pay homage to both the existing Klimax family and the classic beauty of the Sondek CD12; and the stunning sculpted vinyl grooves on top that nod to Linn’s most celebrated product, the legendary Sondek LP12.

Now for a closer look…


Second impressions? This has everything.

It can be:

  • a standalone music streamer extraordinaire or streaming pre-amplifier for integration with any hi-fi system (Audio version, £30,000)
  • a System Hub for use in any Linn Exakt system (Klimax System Hub, £15,000)
  • HDMI-enabled to be your complete audio visual entertainment nucleus (AV version, £30,000)

There is so much more information, detail, pictures, video and of course listening to come on this. Scroll down for more details and specifications, but suffice to say we are already blown away.

Next generation Klimax DSM is available for home demonstrations from Monday 29th March, our first lucky customer is already booked in for tomorrow😊. And we’re now booking one-to-one demonstration appointments in store from Tuesday 27th April onwards, when we re-open. COVID-secure measures will of course be in place. This really is one you have to hear to believe.

Contact us to book and listen for yourself, or get in touch directly with George (george.c@loud-clearco.uk) or Ian (ian.p@loud-clear.co.uk).

And for our existing Klimax owners, there is a very appealing trade-in deal for you. Give us a call for details, 0141 221 0221.

Introducing next-generation Klimax DSM – the ultimate streamer

Fifty years of audio engineering excellence is celebrated in next generation Klimax DSM. It’s the best yet and the closest you’ll get to streaming audio perfection.

The epitome of extreme engineering, every element has been designed from first principles, applying decades of Linn’s unique audio innovation and digital technology expertise.

On the outside, an exquisite, precision-machined, all new enclosure design providing vital acoustic isolation along with visual and tactile luxury.

And on the inside, the beating heart of new Klimax DSM, the ground-breaking first ever all-Linn digital to analogue converter – Organik DAC, enabling Linn’s most natural sounding product ever.

Klimax DSM is available in two variants: Klimax DSM (Audio) offers a solution for music lovers who want only to connect to your music sources; and for those of you seeking an enriched listening experience from your movie sources as well as music, Klimax DSM (AV) is the perfect choice.

If you’re looking for the highest performance from a complete Linn system, opt for the new Klimax System Hub. The powerful pairing of Hub plus Klimax 350 speakers or Klimax Exaktbox, both with the new Organik DAC on-board, delivers a result that’s out of this world.

Loud & Clear Glasgow has the very first demo unit in store and playing now. We are taking one-to-one demonstration appointments now, for Tuesday 27th April onwards when we can re-open. This really is one you have to hear to believe.
