Linn has announced the end of production of its stand-alone pre-amps in favour of the company's DSM players, which the company introduced in 2011. With the recent introduction of additional features such as Linn’s Space Optimisation technology and the integration of high-quality streaming services such as TIDAL & Qobuz, Linn says the trend has rapidly accelerated in favour of DSM products over the traditional pre-amp.
Linn will help existing and new customers to make the transition from old to new technology with a special promotion offering 10% off the cost of any Linn DSM for consumers trading in a pre-amp from Linn or any other manufacturer from now until 14th August.
Commenting on the decision, Linn Managing Director, Gilad Tiefenbrun, said, “People told us we were crazy when we stopped making CD players but it was simply a reflection of Linn’s development of a superior technology together with changes to how people were consuming music. But, just as the DS offered better performance and flexibility than the CD player, the DSM now outperforms any pre-amplifier while offering so much more functionality.”
