Linn Exakt technology... The source is in the speaker.

Exakt technology has enabled Linn to completely revolutionise the design and manufacture of music systems. To read more about the technology behind Exakt, visit our Exakt Technology page.

The Linn Exaktbox allows your Linn Exakt system to be paired with Exakt-ready loudspeakers from any manufacturer, to deliver all the benefits of Exakt to your current system. Exakt works alongside Linn’s Space Optimisation and Space Optimisation+ technology, which allows you to position your speakers in the the most practical – rather than ideal – location in your listening room, without incurring any sonic degradation.

Exakt technology is built into every new Linn speaker as standard, allowing them to be integrated into any Linn Exakt system. But in addition to this, Linn have worked closely with Kudos Audio to bring the benefits of Exakt technology to Kudos’ flagship speakers. Kudos now produce a range of Exakt-ready loudspeakers which benefit from full control of the individual drive units via your Linn Exakt system. This results in even tighter control of your loudspeakers and dramatic improvements in sound quality. Kudos’ Exakt-ready loudspeakers can be found on the Kudos Audio page.

Linn Klimax Exaktbox

Linn Klimax Exaktbox

The Linn Klimax Exaktbox is the culmination of Linn’s Exakt pathway, a Klimax level product to release the pinnacle of Linn’s sonic philosophy and deliver truly world beating sound quality. The Klimax Exaktbox Features Linn’s highest performing digital-to-analogue conversion (DAC) technology and transformer-isolated balanced output stage, both derived from the reference Linn Klimax DS player. This provides 6 individual channels of DAC and 6 balanced analogue outputs.

The Linn Klimax Exakt box can be run singularly in “stereo mode” or paired with a second Klimax Exaktbox to be run in dual “mono mode’, once again lifting the sonic performance even higher. As with all Linn Klimax products, the Klimax Exakt box is created with an enclosure formed from a single billet of aluminium providing superior shielding to micro frequencies.

The Linn Klimax Exaktbox is available in black and silver to match the rest of the Klimax range.
