Expert review by: Michael Jones (

Listening In: Linn Klimax DS


Thirty thousand dollars is a sum that's come up twice this year in regards to Linn products. A fully loaded new LP-12 turntable now sells for that amount, while Linn's newest product, the Klimax DS, will also set you back thirty big ones

So what is the Klimax DS? Um, it's a bit hard to explain. It's sort-of a DAC, and it's sort-of a network music device, but it's not quite what either term brings to mind. But it does sound magnificent
