Linn is a distinguished manufacturer of some of the world’s finest audio components, and the same company that created the ground breaking CD12 CD player, and the Sondek LP12 turntable which continues as a reference product today. Stemming from over 40 successful years of pitch accurate sound reproduction, the Majik System brings new levels of excitement to music playback. Linn’s Majik DS-M integrated amp is one of the most versatile and fully featured products available, with accommodations for digital inputs, analog inputs, HDMI AV inputs, a phono stage for a turntable, a headphone amp, and Linn’s Digital Streaming technology for serious performance playing back network music sources. The beautifully designed Majik 140 floor standing speakers are a popular choice for their great sound and ease of placement, and also come in several handsome real wood finishes including oak, walnut, rosenut, cherry, black ash, and white, making them easy to integrate into any decor. If you need smaller speakers, there’s also a bookshelf version of the 140, the Majik 109. This Linn system can also be easily upgraded for even better performance, by converting the speakers to aktiv and adding extra amplifier channels. And you can always add a Linn LP12 turntable.
