Katalyst for Klimax Exaktbox and Klimax 350 Speakers

RE: Katalyst for Klimax Exaktbox and Klimax 350 Speakers
Dear Linn team,

could we have a bit more information on Katalyst Exakt, please?

Is there any difference to the non-Exakt upgrade?

In Craig's initial post it sounded like the effect for Exakt systems would be even bigger. If that's correct, why would that be?

What about the mentioned Dual Mono vs. Stereo filters?

Thanks!

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 !

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

mhm, did nobody at LINN read these questions resp. comments?

oh no, can't be, LINN is following this threat:

Thanks

That must be a mistake surely?

Time to put my plan for funding my Linn system into action.
Now where's that ancestry website..

Yes, apologies. That's a copy-paste fail!

mhm, so what could be going on:
  • LINN forgot to include the Renew option in the price list Smile okay, I am ready to order Big Grin, just confirm those 2.980 € - 2.980 € for some work, a case and a power supply is very good margin for LINN! And at the bottom line somebody will buy them and start with Exakt, activate his speakers and needs additional 6 channels of amplification, doesn't that sound great to LINN?Big Grin Last not least it is sustainable for the environment to recycle those main boards ... Smile
  • LINN is not sure what to do: offer Renew for KEBoxes or not? Come one LINN, give yourself a push, your faithful Klimax customers are worthwhile to get those Renew option
  • LINN doesn't offer Renew for KEBoxes Sad in that case: what to do with all those boxes? bring them back to the basement? Sad

I know for sure that Jim Collinson only replies on subjects he has knowledge about and he would never comment on sales related ones, except by saying that he can't comment.

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
As sadly, I can't afford The Katalyst upgrade for my Klimax Exakt boxes, I am concern in the future of software Exakt upgrade.
Will Linn continue the upgrades for the old DAC or will the upgrades will be dedicated only for the Katalyst boards ?

They still support KDS/0 and the ones in between that and the current Katalyst version so I agree; should be nothing to worry about at all.

My concern is not the support, indeed I know that Linn will continue to support its products, that the least they can do !
It is the future software improvements I am worried about, as in the last year and specially at the beginning of this year, the new releases have made a huge sound improvement.
