Naim Price Rise

As has been widely covered in the media, two of the many ongoing impacts of the COVID pandemic have been a rise in component prices and major logistical cost increases, especially around transport.

Naim has absorbed these for months but has now been forced to act and will be increasing the prices for all products and accessories, effective 6th December 2021.

Linn Selekt DSM Simplified

Linn’s one-box masterpiece Selekt DSM is without doubt the most configurable, modular audio streamer around and that flexibility is set to expand as new options and upgrades become available. So to simplify options it’s back to basics for Selekt DSM which will now be supplied as Selekt System Hub, to which you add your choice of amplification, DAC quality and more in the form of cartridges that slide inside. A bit like LP12 mechanics with your choice of power supply, toneram, cartridge, etc.
