After more than seven years on the market Linn’s popular Majik DSM has received an overhaul and a drastic facelift, bringing this mainstay of the Linn stable of products up-to-date.
If you were unaware the Majik DSM is an integrated streaming amp, missing only CD playback, (perhaps unsurprising with Linn being one of the first major manufacturers to remove CD players from their line up) the Majik DSM offers music streaming either on network, wired or wireless, or via Bluetooth. As far as music services go all the most popular services are catered for, Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
Vinyl is coped with by the inclusion of a moving magnet phono stage (an upgrade to the Selekt DSM will see moving coil introduced) and thanks to four 4K HDMI inputs and matching output can also be used in place of an AV receiver if you only want to upgrade your TV or projectors sound to high quality stereo.
Although a remote is supplied, control can be taken with either the Linn App or Kazoo. The six customisable buttons can be assigned more specifically than most, a specific input, a streaming service or even a particular album.
As with its forerunner, the new Majik DSM also features Linn’s Space Optimisation technology. This allows the sound to be tailored to the particular quirks of your listening environment.
As always, if this is a unit of interest to you then call us at PJ Hi-Fi on 01483 504801 to arrange a demonstration. We are open again Monday to Saturday on a by appointment basis.
