Linn Upgrade Their DS Streamer Range
L inn have improved the Linn DS streamer range with new models of the Klimax DS, Akurate DS, Majik DS and Majik DSM. The performance improvements involve a new clocking architecture and improved audio circuitry layout via a reduction in number of components, and shorter signal paths. These two improvements have resulted in reduced jitter. The new Linn DS streamers are compatible with Linn’s Exaktbox and are cheaper than before ! Prices have also been reduced as follows - 2015 Klimax DS is priced at £13,300, with the Akurate DS at £4,750, Majik DS £1,990 and Majik DSM £2,965. Existing Linn DS owners can upgrade to the 2015 spec too.

Linn Launch Space Optimisation For Exakt
I n an ideal world you'd just place your speakers where they fitted best into your room and you’d get the best sound quality possible from them. In practice though we know that the world doesn't work like this - most speakers placed up against walls say will exaggerate the bass muffling music details in the mid-range. Linn's - Space Optimisation is an attempt to get around this problem by detecting which frequencies are being enhanced or degraded by the speaker’s placement and then correcting the digital signal in Exakt to compensate.
