Linn end preamplifier production

Posted by May 19th, 2015

The introduction of Linn DS technology in 2007 marked a huge leap forward in pursuit of their goal to remove sources of loss from the audio chain.

In 2011 Linn took this a stage further by integrating pre-amplifier functionality into their world-class digital stream players to create Linn DSM.

Now with Space Optimisation and Exakt Link connections for future upgrade, Linn DSM offers the highest performance, best value and most flexible proposition for their customers.

To this end, Linn will be discontinuing their Klimax Kontrol (including the Klimax Kontrol upgrade), Akurate Kontrol and Majik-I pre-amplifiers once current stocks run out.

Linn highlight a number of reasons to choose Linn DSM over a separate pre-amplifier including digital volume control offering a lower noise floor and lower distortion than possible in analogue pre-amps, integration of DS source without the need for external cables which introduce noise and interference and no switching loss as this is performed losslessly in the digital domain.

Customers can enjoy performance that’s optimised for their room from connected analogue or digital sources using Space Optimisation technology and will benefit from all future firmware updates relating to Linn DS technology and Space Optimisation and with Exakt Link connections on every Linn DSM player there’s a clear upgrade path to Exakt.
