Linn Majik DS-I

What Hi-Fi?
25 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The latest addition to Linn 's DS music-streaming range is certainly an interesting proposition. An all-in-one preamplifier/power amplifier/music streamer unit, the Majik DS-I can accept not only all of a user's centrally-stored music, but also offer connectivity for what computer-music evangelists call ‘legacy' audio components. That takes in your existing CD player, radio tuners, TV sound, and even a turntable.
  • Pros: Multitalented unit supporting all manner of formats, hugely detailed and poised audio
  • Cons: Takes time to get up and running, can', t be used via wi-fi, expensive

Linn Majik DS-I

7 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Linn verschmilzt den ­Streamer und den Vollverstärker der „Majik“-Baureihe zur einzigartigen integrierten Netzwerklösung „DS-I“. Wir durften das erste Serienmuster begutachten Oha, das wird dem Sneaky aber gar nicht schmecken. Der kleinste Linn-Streamer (um 1450 Euro) hatte unsere Herzen vor knapp einem Jahr im Sturm erobert, da er neben seinem hervorragenden Netzwerk-Player gleich noch einen kleinen, feinen Vollverstärker an Bord hat und somit als einzige Komplettanlage...
