Linn have today announced their latest streaming product, the Selekt DSM.  Available as both a streamer and an all-in-one streamer / integrated amplifier combination, Selekt DSM is a great way to get high-end streaming into your home. Beautifully precision engineered to catch the eye of anyone who who sees it, Selekt DSM demands to be touched and interacted with. It brings life back into digital music.

Selekt DSM is a product that is upgradable. There are 4 versions available, all of which feature the exact same casework. You can simply switch in and out the cards in the back to add in extra features. The 4 versions available are - streamer / preamp only, streamer / integrated amplifier, streamer / preamp with Klimax DAC architecture and streamers / integrated amplifer with Klimax DAC architecture.

The Streamer / Pre version fixed or variable line-level RCA (2V) and XLR (4V) stereo outputs, and the Integrated all-in-one version adds a bridged Class-D power amplifier (100wpc into 4 ohms / 50wpc into 8 ohms). Both versions have the exakt links to partner with Linn active speakers.

The Selekt features a number of analogue and digital inputs, making it incredibly versatile. This includes RCA in, MM/MC phono input, USB, 2 x toslink, 2 x SPDIF, Exakt links and HDMI arc, It also integrates seamlessly with Tidal, Qobuz and Spotify Connect streaming services, plays internet radio via TuneIn and is compatible with Roon.

The Selekt DSM will use Linn's patented Space Optimisation software to ensure that whatever speakers are used, in whatever room, you will hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.

Design wise the Selekt DSM is very beautiful but also extremely usable. Its key features is a cut-glass dial embellished with 100 individual LEDs, the dial glows when approached and turns with precision in response to a touch.  As well as serving as a volume control, tilt and press gestures can start and stop a stream, cycle through a play queue or list of radio stations, and switch to other connected sources. It is partnered with a row of smart button that lets the user have full control without using a remote or tablet.

We expect to get these in and avialable from October 2018. Get in touch to pre-order one now.
