Katalyst for Klimax Exaktbox and Klimax 350 Speakers
Afternoon all,

Back in September we promised that we would be rolling out Katalyst across the entire Klimax range.

Today that promise is a reality.

From today, your local Linn Specialists can now take orders for the new Klimax Exaktbox AND the new Klimax 350.

Both products now include our 4th Generation DAC Architecture, Katalyst. As promised, upgrades are available to the latest spec for existing customers of Klimax Exaktbox and Klimax 350.

If you thought the difference Katalyst made to the Klimax DS was big, wait until you hear the difference it makes to products featuring Exakt technology...

Make sure to book yourself in for a demo with your local dealer and experience the difference for yourself.

In the meantime, head on over to the website for more information: http://www.linn.co.uk

Thanks for that Craig.

Exciting, if expensive times! Smile

The obvious question is how much it's all going to cost, or I have just missed that somewhere?

Craigb; even though I'm very happy for the lucky ones with deep pockets, could you give a rough timeline for Katalyst upgrades for us mere mortals, who have to eat from silver instead of golden plates?

Very good news for those who doesn't already spend 24k euros in a pair of Klimax Exakt Boxes in 2015 which are now obsolete.
For my part I will wait perhaps for the Katalyst v2 upgrade !

Craigb

Good news on the launch. Can you confirm a couple of things please?

- The price of the Klimax Exaktbox Renew kit (and if no Renew, why not)
- That the Klimax Katalyst Exaktbox now has enough processing power to run full dual-mono filters across all currently supported 3-way speakers? The website says it supports 3-way speakers in stereo mode - I was under the impression the plan was to offer dual-mono for 3-way speakers.

The website also says the Klimax Exaktbox contains 6 channels of onboard amplification. Which is interesting! Class D perhaps? Smile

Thanks

not obsolete, as there is an upgrade available, but 8.100 € for the Katalyst upgrade for a pair of Exaktboxes is still a lot of money Sad

and not only that I have spent that amount of money for the KEBoxes not long ago: before I had purchased some Klimax Tuneboxes which have been traded in for something like 20% of their original costs just 1 year after purchasing them Sad

therefore I would really appreciate to have a renew option for my KEBoxes to lower the investment at least a little bit ... Rolleyes
