Linn Majik DS in the Test

Anyone looking for a great network player for 2,400 euros, should let be enchanted by the Linn Majik DS. The second-smallest player of the Scots is the one with the most amazing price sound according to the most recent revision may.

With the last tested streaming amplifier Majik DSM Linn practiced the art of perfect both also: analog inputs and a first-class Phonoteil meet digital inputs and an extremely mature, sound-rich streaming platform. Same variety can be found at the end, where you can analog tapping the signals either at the pre out, send it directly to a pair of passive speakers, able to pass link one of the in-house digital active systems via the Linn’s own exactly or via network to forward other players of the DS family.

The 1,100 Euro cheaper name brother Linn Majik DS is, however, already almost Spartan: into it is only via network cable, output the loudspeaker terminals – a pure network player so you may connect directly to the power amplifier thanks to (deactivated) volume control is missing. And to the first Majik streamer from the year 2008 not has become more expensive, but even 100 euros cheaper.

The term ‘Bargain’ in the region of this price would be not a problem, he would fit here perfectly: with what it was seven years ago, the Majik offered a lush equivalent for 2,500 euros at that time. Since then he has learned much like all Linn player: synchronous Multiroom operation, airplay, Songcast for direct connection of a PC or Mac, the CD quality streaming tidal and Qobuz and last but not least, the room acoustics tool SPACE, which allows a precise, very sensitive Equalization of the bass frequency range and thus means a sometimes huge sound bonus in real spaces.

Has grown with the software ecosystem around the DS player: Linn itself there are customized server programs and several tax apps, more options come from various third party companies – customers and dealers so find a richly stocked Kit for stable, individually tailored solutions.

The hardware of the new Linn Majik DS is similar the the when. The two exakt-have been added link interfaces that connect ultra stable, Jittery digital boxes and active turnout of ordinary CAT5 cable of virtually any length exactly family. The second change is, however, also outside a closed Linn system: with a new clock architecture, the D/A converter in the DS Gets a further closer working cycle.

As with the related climax DSM and DSM Majik, the precise time base in a clearly established sound is noticeable. The new Majik had completely filed the somewhat slender character of its predecessor in the listening room, more pressure developed in the bass and the music across the entire frequency spectrum with a wonderfully self-evident cohesion presented. The player worked in terms of hearing and only quite metrologically not darker or otherwise tonally altered, played well but more like the big brother Akurate DS, rather than as before to remind a sonically widened version of the little sneaky DS.

A clear progress so, and a sound level, which means a “superior” equivalent even in the face of the quite high price. Digital sound, which does not rely on effects and force dairy needs, but with a sovereign internal accuracy convinced they teach you really appreciate, if it is suddenly missing after switching to an other player. At this point the DS also DSM brother (both have their pre outs belongs) was ahead. The focus on pure play worth so here too.

Conclusion

2009, the Linn Majik DS has ever experienced a revision – then clear sound advantages brought a new switching power supply. The new clock of the 2015 version of Majik is progress to hear even more clearly. This makes final the Linn to the recommendable player in its price class – especially since he convinced by the way absolutely stable practice behavior with a now very sophisticated operating concept.
