Each channel has both XLR & RCA outputs that can be used simultaneously.



DAC - Stereo Digital to Analogue Convertor module options
This will allow you to select the audio performance of this cartridge.


Option 1: Standard (Level-1) THD+N: 0.0002%



Dynamic Range      114dB



Option 2: Katalyst (Level-2) THD+N: 0.0002%



Dynamic Range      117dB



Line Output:

RCA:

Output Level: 2V rms @volume 80

Output Impedance: 300Ω


XLR

Output Level: 4V rms @volume 80

Output Impedance:      600Ω




Note:

  • DAC's are sold seperately and ONE DAC module MUST be fitted to the the cartridge to get audio from this cartridge.
  • Different DAC's modules can be used with each Selekt Cartridge.
Either
  • Standard (Level-1) DAC is the standard DAC.
or
  • Each DAC module use STEREO DAC IC/chip's. You CANNOT have a Standard and a Katalyst DAC module installed in the same Line-level, Power-amplifier or 1.1 module at the same time.
  • These Standard and Katalyst DAC modules are interchangeable in different cartridges in the same Selekt DSM. This will change the audio performance of that cartridge only.



SELEKT DSM CARTRIDGE - POWER OUT

Selekt-PowerOut-Module.jpg

Description:

This is a module with 2off Class-D Power Amplifier channels
Each channel uses 4mm/Banana/binding post terminals



DAC - Stereo Digital to Analogue Convertor module options
This will allow you to select the audio performance of this cartridge.


Option 1: Standard (Level-1)



Option 2: Katalyst (Level-2)



Power Amplifier Output:

Bridged Class-D amplifier with post-filter feedback using 4mm/Banana/binding post terminals.
      Max output power:




100W/channel into 4Ω load,


50W / channel into 8Ω load



THD+N: 0.001%
Dynamic Range      110dB
Gain: 20dB



Note:

  • An upgrade to the Selekt Power supply may be requried to use any new modules.
  • Power Amplifier outputs: These are CLASS-D amplifier outputs and speakers should ONLY be connected/disconnected when the product in is Sleep state or powered OFF.
  • Some Electrostatic speakers may require a modification to work with Linn Selekt Class-D amplifier. Please refer to the speaker manufacturers website for information.
  • The Selekt power amplfiers have a slightly lower gain than other Linn power amplifiers, (Majik/Akurate..). If you are going to Bi-Amp a pair of speakers then we would recommend either ALL Selekt Power amplifier cartridges or ALL Selekt Line level cartridges with external amplifiers.
  • DAC's are sold seperately and ONE DAC module MUST be fitted to the the cartridge to get audio from this cartridge.
  • Different DAC's modules can be used with each Selekt Cartridge.
Either
  • Standard (Level-1) DAC is the standard DAC.
or
  • Each DAC module use STEREO DAC IC/chip's. You CANNOT have a Standard and a Katalyst DAC module installed in the same Line-level, Power-amplifier or 1.1 module at the same time.
  • These Standard and Katalyst DAC modules are interchangeable in different cartridges in the same Selekt DSM. This will change the audio performance of that cartridge only.
