Using a Linn DS, Kontrol and DSM product in the same room

Wiring Diagram - click to enlarge

If we take a Klimax DS, Klimax Kontrol and Klimax DSM.

  1. Wire the Klimax DS and Klimax Kontrol as pre the system

  2. Take the Pre-Out of the Klimax DSM and wire into an input of the Klimax Kontrol

Using Konfig:

  1. Define all three products to have the same room name
  2. On the Klimax Kontrol Sources, go to the input that the Klimax DSM is connected to and change the Name using the dropdown box to select the product name of the Klimax DSM.

  3. Go into the Klimax DSM setup
  4. Set Internal Volume Control to OFF

To save having two sets of "Playlist", "Radio", "UPnPAV" and "Songcast" inputs we recommend that you set these sources to have Visible to No

This configuration will now allow you to have selection of the Klimax Kontrol AND Klimax DSM source in the same room.
The Kinsky will ONLY control the Klimax Kontrol volume, as you have set the Klimax DSM volume control to OFF only the Kliamx Kontrol volume is required to be controlled
IR functionality is limited to Klimax Kontrol volume and source selection and full Klimax DS control.

Note: You must have a Linn DS in this system as the Linn DSM products do NOT have a RS232 connection to allow control of the Linn Kontrol Pre-Amplifier

Akurate DSM, Akurate DS & Akurate Kontrol has a similar setup.
