New Linn Selekt DSM: Hi-Fi With The Human Touch

4th Oct 2018

‘Digital streaming reborn’ according to Hi-Fi+ magazine.  Loud & Clear welcomes the new Linn Selekt DSM.

Selekt DSM is a new look for Linn in a new, flexible direction. It is as stunning to look at as it is to listen to. Every element is precision engineered for the most authentic musical performance possible.

A sleek, elegant and tactile design incorporates a top-mounted jewel-like dial and smart buttons, both ready to be personalised, giving you immediate access to the music you want to hear, no matter the source. And bringing back perhaps some of the human interaction with your hi-fi that has been lost with the evolution of digital music.

Customers can choose their own configuration – Selekt DSM with or without Katalyst performance level and with or without integrated power amplifier – to suit their existing needs and system; a flexibility and willingness to integrate with other manufacturers’ products that historically Linn have been criticised for not offering.

Selekt includes new, improved Space Optimisation*, minimising the impact on sound quality of room ‘quirkiness’ and speaker positioning by removing the distorting effects of your environment, revealing the true sound of your music.

Control with anything: every Linn network music player can be controlled by the things you already own. Mix and match iPad or tablet, smartphone or laptop, even the humble remote control.

Stream anything: no matter how you enjoy your music, Linn have it covered. From the convenience of Spotify and TuneIn to lossless streaming services such as TIDAL and Qobuz; whether you Airplay from your iPad or you’ve ripped your CDs to a hard drive.

Models in the Selekt range are as follows:

Digital inputs: SPDIF x2, Toslink x2, HDMI ARC x1, USB (Audio Class 2 endpoint) x 1

Analogue inputs:  Line-In (RCA) x 1, MM Phono (RCA) x 1, MC Phono (RCA) x 1

Outputs: Balanced XLR* x 1, RCA Phono* x 1, Speaker Out** x 2 pairs, Exakt Links x 2

* New Space Optimisation delivers a breakthrough in bass performance and a more coherent overall sound, no matter the shape of your listening room and without the need for custom filters. The latest version offers the following new features:
