Better to Stream?
Is that the question? Or is that debate over?
Not just yet as many people want to retain the simplicity of putting on a disc, vinyl or cd. Personally I haven't played a cd at home for ages. My streamer, Linn Klimax, sounds far better, is more convenient, and as a result I listen to more music. I also have a lot of records to play!
While there have been discussions and heated debates about cd vs streaming, as streaming has been improving it is now accepted that streaming rules the performance agenda, Naim Uniti Nova, pictured, or a Linn Majik DSM, excellent complete solutions in one box, just add speakers.
( See the article in Music/Geeks for some more technical opinion)
So as we head upwards in sound quality we use the superiority of Linn DSM streaming.
The Linn Majik DSM4 has a streamer and amplifier in one box, connected to a NAS at one end and speakers at the other. The 'open' nature of Linn means that you have a wide choice of how you prefer to control it.
Android, iphone, ipad, pc, mac, laptop, all can work with Linn software.
Uniting the latest and best from Linn in one elegantly engineered case, Majik DSM delivers a dramatic new standard of specialist performance from a one-box system. AND they've just gone and moved the goalposts with DSM4 ! Ok it's now £ 3150 but it is even better!
