Klimax DS to DSM With Exakt
The integration and performance benefits offered by Klimax DSM, along with the recent addition of Exakt Links, makes the move to Klimax DSM a compelling one for Klimax DS owners.
With this in mind, we developed an upgrade package for Klimax DS owners that swaps their Klimax DS board for DSM boards inside their existing DS case, and reuses the old DS board in a Renew DS to create a second player.
There are several key performance benefits to upgrading to an integrated Klimax DSM from separate DS and Kontrol:
- Cable loss is eliminated thanks to the internal digital connection between the DS source and the pre-amp
- Switching loss no longer occurs as this is now performed losslessly in the digital domain
- The digital volume control has a lower noise floor than the analogue volume control in the Klimax Kontrol
- External digital sources benefit from the Klimax quality internal DACs
- When you connect an analogue source, it is passed through the same analogue volume control design as the Klimax Kontrol, plus it benefits from reduced interference due to the addition of transformer isolation.
