Majik DSM Streamer / Integrated Amplifier
Take your first step into authentic hi-fi with Majik DSM. One box does it all: just add speakers. The powerful combination of network music player, pre-amp and power amp, all in one timeless package, is peerless.
Majik DSM has all the connectivity to handle anything you throw at it, wired or wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth. Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, your own stored music collection… Whether you’re streaming music or using one of the many inputs to plug in your 4K TV, Sky box, Apple TV, Games Console… even a turntable, with Majik DSM at the heart of all your home entertainment you’ll get the best possible sound from everything you listen to, in one room or many.
Drawing on over 10 years’ experience in developing network music players, improvements have been made throughout the product to enable new Majik DSM to outperform both its predecessor and the competition. Updates to the DAC implementation, power amplification and volume control are all underpinned by a new, higher power processing platform.
The DAC architecture is derived from the development of Linn’s industry-leading Katalyst technology, including improved upsampling, a lower noise reference voltage and an ultra-low jitter clock for greater timing accuracy throughout.
The bespoke, Linn-designed Class D power amplifiers offer better performance thanks to lower noise and distortion and more efficient signal conversion, allowing even greater musical detail to be extracted.
New Majik DSM also benefits from digital volume control which removes a lossy component from the signal path for lower noise and distortion.
These technical improvements alongside Linn’s unique Space Optimisation technology, which optimises performance for an individual room and speaker, ensure the stand-out performance of Maijk DSM.
Four HDMI 2.0 4K-compatible inputs make it the perfect central point for AV sources, with no compromise on high res audio discs or movie soundtracks – Majik DSM will play them as they should be heard.
An innovative flexible analogue input is configurable to either Moving Magnet (for turntables) or Line Level (for other analogue sources). The phono stage benefits from a hybrid architecture derived from Linn’s reference Urika II phono stage, combining digital and analogue processing to precisely implement the RIAA curve, resulting in more accurate vinyl reproduction.
A Type-B USB port allows high res audio to be played directly from a PC, enabling Majik DSM to function as an audiophile-quality standalone DAC.
In-built Wi-Fi enables the highest quality streaming with the convenience of no wires, while Bluetooth provides a simple way to get started playing music wirelessly with the minimum of set-up.
For personal audio, there is a ¼” headphone jack on the front panel with the integrated headphone amplifier specifically designed to power high quality, audiophile-level headphones.
