We’ve been deeply impressed by the Klimax DSM which launched last year. A substantial portion of its breakthrough performance is due to the new Organik DAC implemented within it..

Linn’s first-ever, entirely homegrown DAC –

“Is this better than what’s available elsewhere?”


At Linn, nothing progresses beyond the prototype stage if it can’t answer this question with a resounding ‘Yes!’.

Designing and building their own DAC, completely from scratch, was no exception. It was only worth doing if the result would be significantly better than their previous designs utilising meticulously optimised 3rd-party chips.

Designed without compromise, and engineered entirely in-house, Organik is the embodiment of over thirty years of digital technology innovation and expertise.

Linn pioneered high-performance digital streaming in the hi-fi industry; they’re raising the bar further, thanks to this paradigm shift in digital-to-analogue conversion technology.

How does it sound? That’s not for us to say. Though rest assured, Linn doesn’t do anything unless they can do it better than what’s available elsewhere.

With this novel DAC architecture, implementation, and realisation, Linn has finally completed the puzzle: they have achieved complete control over the entire music signal chain — an ambition fifty years in the making. –

Organik forms the beating heart of next-generation Klimax DSM (2021), and you can now experience Organik performance across the established Klimax range; whether as part of a new system or through upgrading your existing Klimax products.

Organik is fitted as standard to all new Klimax DSM, Klimax Exaktbox and Klimax 350 integrated loudspeakers.

All Klimax DS and DSM variants — even the very first model manufactured in 2007 – can now be retrofitted with an Organik DAC architecture upgrade.

This upgrade has the added benefit of adding DSD256 and 24-bit/384kHz streaming capability to older Klimax streamers, bringing them right up to date with Linn’s current flagship platform.

Price of the upgrade is £5400 fitted and including a 5-year warranty.
