The fully active Linn Klimax 320 (22500 euros) is an exception, because many high-definition boxes can a handset spoil just optimally thanks to their narrow beam angle, not the climax.

What high Ender has not ever seen before? The dealer delivers the new Nobel-HiFi chain, is carefully for everything (and a), but not really sexy, members find new achievements. Because sounds as high resolution as promised the chain only in a narrow listening area.
Which is simply not big enough for three, four, or even more listeners for many speakers. This happens most frequently with dipole radiators. A quad ESL-2905 (tested in stereoplay 3/06) may sound extremely well, is good but strictly speaking only for a person who must sit perfectly on top. But also classic boxes bundle partly so strong that larger groups of listeners regularly discussions arise, who when allowed to sit in the hot spot.
Linn’s approach, to equip its range of boxes with a distinctly wide angular behavior, which allows the hoped-for musical enjoyment in an Atypically large area is incomparably more democratic. Even outside this wellness zone, there will be no tonal distortions.
To do so, the Scottish premium manufacturer produces own chassis arrays that always follow the same pattern. On a massive, almost resonance-free mounting plate multiple chassis sit next to each other as closely as possible. The diameter of the diaphragm is always small in relation to the emitted wavelengths, resulting in an Atypically wide auditory sensation area.
Noble climax models, this array consists of three dome systems with soft plastic membranes, the diameter of which varies between 13 and 75 mm. A Cone Woofer, a total a four-way system works among 390 Hertz.
And what for one! Each chassis has its own amplifier as a drive. The bass is servo controlled, is trimmed to depth as on impulse fidelity. The amplifiers have potent power switching power supplies that provide a superior resistance to loads of any kind. Specifically, electronic filters adapted to the capacity of the chassis keep the overlap zones between adjacent chassis.
The irregularly cut, highly sound-neutral case, whose Oberfläche of the customer can freely determine are a class of its own. The cabinets are manufactured very dogmatic in Germany. The housing, extremely stable constructed and equipped with fine finish, is also partly responsible for the truly clean and punchy bass, which can be also fine dosing via the electronic system and adapt to the room acoustics – see diagram right. And even if it is enough at the Linn of 96 decibels to the Disco sound climax with their maximum undistorted level: what has the compact four-way construction in normal level conditions with regard to resolution, naturalness and airiness to offer, this is simply stunning.
The details are all there: finely polished polished and gleaming, but never intrusive. Example: the mutating quickly into the Greedy Christmas Oratorio shot of the DG with Fritz Whimsical. The choir have enormous power, but usually you would like to rotate rather quietly in the tutti passages. This desire is almost thwarted by the Linn: Here you want to hear louder, always more precisely how great the tenor phrases, where are the individual singers. The Linn Klimax 320 A makes this class. Their sound has some warm, full, discreet. Despite all this, she manages an exceptionally accurate spatial representation.
No question: This speaker is expensive and not just level fixed – but sinfully good.
