Quoting from Linn:

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

In 2011 we took this a stage further by integrating pre-amplifier functionality into our 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 your customers.

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

Reasons to choose Linn DSM over a separate pre-amplifier…

Higher performance than an analogue pre-amp

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
No switching loss as this is performed losslessly in the digital domain*

Connection of digital sources

High quality internal DACs to connect and enjoy improved performance from digital sources*

Space Optimisation

Customers can enjoy performance that’s optimised for their room from connected analogue or digital sources using Space Optimisation technology

Future Upgradeability

Customers will benefit from all future firmware updates relating to Linn DS technology and Space Optimisation
With Exakt Link connections on every Linn DSM player there’s a clear upgrade path to Exakt.

Place last orders now

Limited stock is available for each pre-amplifier so please place your order as soon as possible as they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.”

* For Akurate DS and Klimax DS customers seeking to add sources can take up our DS to DSM upgrade.
