LINN Klimax Solo 800 Mono Amplifier

Introducing LINN Klimax Solo 800 Mono Amplifier- The Klimax Solo 800 is Linn's most powerful and sophisticated power amplifier yet.

Superior performance mono amplifier that outperforms larger rivals

With the Klimax Solo 800, Linn has created a superior performance mono amplifier that can drive any speaker optimally in any condition.

To achieve this, his electronic engineers went back to first principles with their sights focused on “consistency” and “precision” because consistency and precision are critical to the pure, unadulterated performance of the power amplifier.

It features innovative and original technologies that combine to produce astonishingly low distortion measurements with an excellent signal-to-noise ratio and incredible efficiency.

In a typical setup, you hear the buildup of interactions between the speaker and the amplifier, a combination of non-ideal characteristics that result in artifacts heard in music. Linn’s focus on relentless minimization of distortion within the amplifier and unilaterally consistent output means that the Klimax Solo 800 introduces negligible harmonics or background noise into the musical signal.

Power is nothing without control

Klimax Solo 800 epitomizes efficient, consistent, and precise circuit design.

Their unique combination of digital and analog expertise has allowed them to optimize and linearize each internal stage of the amplifier to produce highly high performance consistently.

Adaptive bias control

Klimax Solo 800 features the original adaptive bias control technology. With it, the ideal bias current is established for each of the sixteen output transistors of the amplifier dynamically and in real-time by measuring, sampling, and digitizing the current supplied to them.

A digital control loop then implements and persistently adjusts this optimal bias current for each transistor precisely, nullifying crossover distortion at any temperature, regardless of volume or demanding dynamic changes in the music, for the entire amplifier life.

Efficient cooling

Klimax Solo 800 features excellent heat management, driving the most demanding loads without compromising linearity or resorting to an internal fan.

Excellent thermal coupling is achieved by mounting the amplifier and power supply circuitry directly to the critical efficiency and large surface area heatsinks. This cool-running design is vital to delivering exceptional clarity of up to 800 W into 4 Ω and 1.2 kW into 2 Ω.

Temperature is minimized within the amplifier, ensuring that the properties of its internal components remain constant even during the loudest and most demanding musical passages. Maintains consistency, efficiency, and longevity at all times.
