With Klimax Solo 800, Linn has created a superior-performance amplifier that can drive any given speaker optimally – under any conditions. To achieve this, Linn’s electronic engineers returned to first principles with their crosshairs trained on ‘consistency’ and ‘accuracy’ – because consistency and accuracy are key to pure, unadulterated, power amp performance.

Klimax Solo 800 features novel and Linn-original technologies that combine to produce staggeringly low distortion measurements, with superb signal-to-noise ratio and incredible efficiency.
Linn’s unique combination of digital and analog expertise has allowed them to optimize and linearise every internal stage of this amplifier to consistently produce exceedingly high performance. As a whole, it is the epitome of efficient, consistent, and accurate circuitry design; and it measurably outperforms larger rivals.
Linn’s all-new, Utopik switch-mode power supply topology for Klimax Solo 800 boasts precision-regulated power rails. It provides the best of both worlds, generating 2kW maximum power output whilst retaining speed, responsiveness, and consummate efficiency. It maintains an extremely steady output voltage; the rails perform consistently in the face of dramatic loading changes. What’s more, if the mains input varies, the output won’t – remaining stable and ultra-pure at all times.
With Utopik for Klimax Solo 800, Linn has progressed a step further to minimize switching noise and improve efficiency by utilizing a technique called ‘soft-switching’; a resonant tank circuit ensures that voltage across the switch falls to zero before the switch is thrown. Thanks to soft-switching, Utopik for Klimax Solo 800 is cleaner, more efficient, and remains whisper-quiet over the full range of operating conditions.
Klimax Solo 800 features Linn’s original Adaptive Bias Control technology. With it, the ideal bias current for each of the amp’s sixteen output transistors is established 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 optimum bias current for each individual transistor specifically; negating crossover distortion at any temperature – regardless of volume or demanding dynamic changes in music – for the the entirety of the amp’s life.
Klimax Solo 800 features superb heat management; driving the most difficult of loads without compromising linearity or resorting to an internal fan.
Excellent heat coupling is achieved by mounting the amplifier and power supply circuitry directly to the critically efficient, large surface area heatsinks. This cool-running design is key to delivering exceptional clarity right up to 800W into 4Ω, and 1.2kW into 2Ω.
Temperature is minimized within the amp, ensuring that the properties of its internal components remain consistent during even the loudest and most demanding passages of music. It maintains consistency, efficiency, and longevity at all times.
