Katalyst was first seen in Linn’s Klimax DS and Klimax DSM network music players. Linn’s Exakt technology is built-in to the Klimax 350, as well as digital crossover capabilities with each speaker delivering six independent channels, one for every speaker drive unit. Each channel has its own volume control, enhanced DAC with Katalyst and on-board power amplifier. All of these technologies are integrated into the module and mounted on the back of the cabinet.
The Linn Klimax Exaktbox also includes a transformer-isolated balanced output stage derived from Linn’s reference Klimax DS player.
With six channels on board, you can upgrade a two or three-way speaker with one Klimax Exaktbox. Linn suggest using one per speaker, which also means you can upgrade any four, five or even six-way speaker.
The new Klimax 350 loudspeaker and Klimax Exaktbox featuring Katalyst DAC Architecture are available today in a choice of finishes.
