Exakt is a new line from Linn that focuses on making the entire signal processing path from the source to the speaker lossless. The Klimax Exakt System is comprised of a Klimax Exakt DSM and Klimax Exakt 350 Speakers in one package. LINN says that Exakt is the most direct connection ever made between the listener and the artist. It sends digital data to an Exakt speaker losslessly to eliminate sources of noise, distortion and interference inherent in the traditional analog hi-fi chain, meaning that a Studio Master file, or any other music source, is supposedly transmitted perfectly to the speaker.
In design, the intelligence built into Linn Exakt phase corrects every signal, eliminating the phase and magnitude distortion introduced by analog crossovers, ensuring 100 percent accuracy in every single crossover.
In manufacturing, physical variation between parts is inherent in even the most accurate processes, however Exakt measures and corrects for even the tiniest variation between drive units, meaning every system that leaves the factory is guaranteed to perform exactly to its specification, guaranteeing a perfect speaker.
In the home, the Exakt system is optimized to suit every individual’s room using powerful new Linn software and Linn specialist retailer expertise. The customer now has the flexibility to choose where he would like his system positioned to fit around his life without compromising the sound he hears. As with all Linn DSM players, all sources can be connected for improved performance. Even vinyl sounds better – there’s no better way to preserve the signal from an LP12 than Exakt. New ADC technology converts the delicate LP12 to digital and sends it losslessly to the speaker, better protecting the signal than any other solution.
The Linn Klimax Exakt system is available now from Linn Specialists worldwide, priced at £50,000.
