Organik DAC: the beating heart of Klimax DSM

Next-generation Klimax DSM contains features and technology developed by our engineers across years of industry-leading research and development, including the ground-breaking new Organik DAC.

Designed without compromise and manufactured entirely in-house, the home-grown all-Linn Organik DAC combines FPGA processing with a discrete conversion stage, enabling us to precisely control and optimise every stage of the digital to analogue conversion process for the first time.

The first ever, all-Linn, digital to analogue converter
Designed and manufactured entirely in-house, Organik DAC is the first ever, all-Linn, digital to analogue converter.

With Organik DAC, Linn handles every element of the digital to analogue conversion process using a combination of FPGA processing and a discrete conversion stage.

These are designed to work together in perfect harmony. They’re precisely controlled and relentlessly optimised for exceptional audio performance.
