The Linn DS / DSM thread
I would like to gather the thoughts and experiences of all the DS owners on here, whether a Sneaky or a Klimax owner. As we stand, I think there are a couple of Sneakys, a Majik DSM or two, the odd Majik DS, a potential Akurate DS owner, but no Klimax DSsss. IMO The CDP (not CDs) is on the way out and streaming is becoming much more relevant. IMO. Linn is a must audition if you're thinking of dipping a toe in the "stream", and in the market to spend £850 upwards. I want to hear the experience of anyone who has compared them to the direct competition eg. Naim, Cyrus and Olive etc; as well as a Transport plus Dac at similar money. I am also interested in hearing if you have compared different models of DSsss and if you think they are worth the fairly hefty premium to the next one up....where's the sweet spot in the range? If you went for a DSM, which other amps did it fend off to make it into your system? If you bought something else, what was it, and why did you prefer it?
