Every Linn DS Optimized for You and Your Home

At Linn, we believe that a music system should give you incredible performance and fit around you and your home. That’s why we’re proud to say that Linn DS players are the highest performing network music players available.


Now with Space Optimisation

And now Linn DS is even better. Featuring our new Space Optimisation technology, every Linn DS player has the power to optimise the performance of your music system in any room, with any speakers.

Every room has its own particular sound. But if you’re investing in a world-class music system, why let your room have such a big say in what you hear? Great sound shouldn’t cramp your style.

Space Optimisation removes the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment, revealing the true sound of the music. So you can design your room the way you want to and experience a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.

New and improved DS for higher quality sound

Our Linn DS improvements don’t stop there. We’ve also launched a new Klimax DS, Akurate DS, Majik DS and Majik DSM, delivering an even higher performance than ever before. New clocking architecture and improved audio circuitry layouts have led to a reduction of components, shorter signal paths and reduced jitter, meaning you can enjoy the best performance.

Exakt Ready

We’ve also included Exakt links on these new Linn DS players, future proofing your system and letting you relax safe in the knowledge that you can upgrade to the ultimate performance of Exakt at any time.


If you already own a Klimax DS or Akurate DS, you can upgrade to the new and improved version with the offer of a Renew DS for another room in your home.

Experience Linn DS for yourself

Book a personal listening session at a Linn Specialist near you and experience Linn DS with Space Optimisation for yourself.

And if you already own Linn DS contact your Linn Specialist to find out how you too can enjoy a Space Optimisation software upgrade for your system!

Cedia 2014 Kicks Off in Denver



Aug 29, 2014 1


INDIANAPOLIS (August 29, 2014) — CEDIA, the international association representing the residential electronic systems industry, is celebrating its 25th anniversary at this year’s CEDIA EXPO. Special recognition of founding members will be a part of the celebration in addition to member appreciation activities. 

In the summer of 1989, a small group of industry players primarily representing the first wave of custom installation firms, from a variety of experiences and ages, gathered in a small room in Chicago with a vision to establish the  Custom Installation dealer as a critical partner in the channel in order for manufacturers to recognize their role and to produce products specific to their client needs. That initial meeting lead to a larger gathering of both Custom Installers and manufacturers in Las Vegas which lead to the formation of what is now known as CEDIA, the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association if the fall of 1989.

Over the course of the last 25 years, not only did this small group influence the creation of CEDIA, but through their initial vision and determination, CEDIA has influenced reality and pioneered an industry that is innovative, passionate and above all the central connection of manufacturers, dealers, manufacturer representatives and others in the residential technology industry.

“To this day CEDIA is still driven by the entrepreneurial and passion of our founding members and volunteers, which has enabled us to constantly push new boundaries and grow CEDIA and the industry across the globe,” said Don Gilpin, CEDIA Executive Director and COO “Celebrating 25 years is a true testament to the dedication and determination our members have for their business and the industry. CEDIA has grown from just a small group of 50 visionaries to more than 3500 professional member companies, representing 22,000 professionals.”

The 25th anniversary celebration will be carried out at CEDIA EXPO 2014, September 10-13 in Denver, CO.

“For 25 years, CEDIA EXPO is where industry friends get together, new contacts are made and relationships are forged and strengthened.  It is with extreme pride to witness CEDIA turning 25 years old this September and to attend our 25th EXPO in Denver.” said Tom Doherty, CEDIA President, 1990-1992, Lifetime Achievement recipient 2001.
