Linn Klimax DSM/2 Organik Preamplifier/DAC/Streamer
I purchased this dealer demo unit in April 2021. It is a top-of-the-line Linn integrated digital music player (DAC streamer) and preamplifier. I have enjoyed many hours of beautiful music with it connected to either a Linn Klimax Twin stereo amplifier or Klimax 500 Solo monoblocs. It has been used in a clean, smoke and pet free environment. It works flawlessly and is in perfect condition (9/10). This is the 4K compatible AV variant with original factory Dynamik Power, and I had it upgraded with the new Linn Organik DAC in May 2022 (at a cost of $7,020). The Organic DAC is a dramatic improvement over the previous highly acclaimed Katalyst DAC. The Organik upgrade makes this a unique unit. This AV variant can accept a number of inputs from a variety of sources. It is Roon ready. I have used it to control my entire home entertainment center (including the phono pre-amp, CD/DVD player, streaming with Roon, Qobuz, Tidal, Tune-In, Spotify, radio, TV, and computer). It is controllable with android and Apple software apps. It comes with original factory packaging, cables and Remote Control. You won’t find a better or more versatile unit for this price. I am in the process of upgrading my entire system. (The Linn Klimax 500 Solo monobloc amplifiers are also for sale).
Original Price $23,380 + $7,020 (upgrade) = $30,400
Asking $13,049
REASONABLE offers will be considered. No trades. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees.

Please read the review by 'absolute sound' - Robert Harley, Jan 6, 2023

Listening:
Switching to the DSM with the Organik DAC was not an incremental improvement but rather a wholesale change to the sound’s character. Hearing the two side-by-side ( DSM Katalyst & DSM Organik) threw into sharp relief the Organik’s dramatically smoother midrange, more natural timbre, and much reduced digital edge. The Organik’s utterly liquid and smooth timbres and lack of glare, grain, or edge was the DAC’s defining characteristic—and one that contributed immensely to its overall musicality and engagement. The Organik’s spatial presentation was spectacularly great, with tremendous depth and dimensionality, and an impression of air around instrumental outlines. Another area in which the Organik excelled was in transient speed and impact. Organik DAC upgrade for existing DSM owners: $7020
