A potent combination of network music player, pre-amp and power amp in a single box enclosure, the next-generation Majik DSM has been designed to cater for both first-time hi-fi buyers seeking authentic simplicity and existing customers wanting to enhance their high-end hi-fi options in more rooms. It is, in short, the ideal entertainment hub, containing all the analogue, digital and wireless connectivity needed to connect any source – from TV to turntable.
Linn’s best-selling streaming product of the last decade has been “completely reimagined to deliver a stunning new look, an all-new feature set and, most importantly, an impressive boost in performance”.
The DAC architecture is derived from the development of Linn’s Katalyst technology, including improved upsampling, a lower noise reference voltage and an ultra-low jitter clock for greater timing accuracy throughout. The bespoke, Linn-designed Class D power amplifiers offer better performance thanks to lower noise and distortion and more efficient signal conversion; and the new Majik DSM also benefits from digital volume control that removes a lossy component from the signal path for lower noise and distortion. Complementing these technical improvements is Linn’s Space Optimisation technology, which optimises performance for an individual room and speaker.
Other key features include a new headphone amp designed to power high-quality headphones; and six customisable smart buttons offering immediate access directly from the product to pinned content. The system can also be completed with Majik LP12 and Majik 109 or 140 speakers for high-performance streaming and vinyl playback throughout.
