Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

I think there is further room for improvement…

There is no Majik System Hub, only a Majik DSM. However this DSM even has a power amplifier, different from the other DSM, except the Selekt in case you order the amplifier cartridge which makes it a System Hub or not? Still confused… ;-)

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

I think it might refer to eliminating the DS products. And personally I did find it a bit confusing (DS, DSM some with, some without Exakt links, some with some without analog output). J.

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Yes I noticed it on ebay, e.g. and for the first time after many years even in local language, also there website is now partially English and the new stuff in local language;-) , quite a mix. I don’t like the pictures though, what has a whale in a bowl to do with music? Ahh. I get it: Space Optimiz...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

What makes you think there is more to come until mid October
than the rollout of Selekt to the various regions?

Re: Absolute Bargains!

I can recommend the FiiO BTR1 portable Bluetooth headphone amp. Small, light and great sound for relatively little money. It connects to iPhones and other mobiles via Bluetooth and has a 3,5 plug so you can continue to use your favorite non-Bluetooth headphones. J. https://www.advancedmp3players.co....

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Selekt is not of interest to me but I do hope that it will be a success for Linn. I hope them to stay in business for many years to come so that I get updates and support. And as they are already around for quite some time, they must have made a lot of things right so far. I'm much more interested i...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Opens a new can of worms...
Versions for PC, Mac, Linux devices need to be supported then...and would be outside of Linn‘s control if it didn‘t work as your HW is to old etc.

Cloud is the way to go...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

The calculation is currently done in the DS, not the PC (at least that is my understanding) So if it is done in the Cloud, obvioulsy the results need to be fed into the DS, probably via Konfig, but we will see. I was told one could still use the existing filters. Not sure whether that means the clou...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

Yes. I think you’re misinterpreting “Pressure change over time” as being atmospheric pressure. I strongly suspect they’ve done a lot of work on how pressure waves decay over time in the room and reverberation time (if they aren’t both the same thing?) IIRC, this is what Philbo implied that Robert C...

Re: Linn announcements 9/2018, Selekt, etc.

not quite correct:

the name Selekt was out weeks ago
the fact that it is a DAC/Amplifier type of product was out about 2 weeks ago
and the view was that there is a lot of space between the Majik and Akurate lines of product for new stuff

Re: Linn forum down?

Elegant is how we’d describe the entire presentation. The same 350mm-square footprint as the LP23, the Selekt DSM’s chassis, available in black only, sports a lovely smoke cut glass exterior with a chrome base.

LP23?

It is a hybrid, On one hand an all-in-one box, on the other hand it offers upgrade options so that customers can improve their System without having to switch to a different product line, could be smart.
