Linn Klimax Chakra 500 Twin

The Linn design team have created a slim and elegant ‘machined-from-solid’ aluminium chassis that looks fantastic in any environment and also contributes to the incredible performance of this product.

The Klimax 500 Chakra Twin can be wall mounted using Linn’s V-Klip system, perfect for limited space situations and also where you do not want your system to be visible.

The Klimax Chakra 500 Twin features Linn’s proprietary audio-optimised Switch Mode Power Supply. This patented technology generates stable, low noise power rails for the audio circuitry, with higher mains noise isolation and efficiency than the very bulky and noisy conventional power supplies, to ensure all you hear is the music.

Chakra is a simple but highly innovative design, perfected by Linn through precision engineering. It offers significantly increased power, reliability and efficiency, whilst at the same time producing less heat, less distortion and using fewer components. In short, Chakra amplifier topology is superior in every parameter through simplicity.

It also features a balanced audio input for the best and most secure connection to your pre-amplifier. A balanced audio signal helps to remove unwanted current and noise for the highest possible sound quality.
