A broad range of connectivity ensures that Classic Hub can receive and deliver audio from any source imaginable; with a high-performance, integrated, analogue-to-digital conversion stage accepting anything from turntables to CD players, and a host of digital connections allowing connection to video streaming devices, games consoles, and Blu-ray players – ensuring you get tremendous sound quality from anything you connect to your Selekt DSM.

Classic Hub

The Selekt DSM Classic Hub chassis features powder-coated, folded aluminium casework mounted atop an 8mm-thick, machined-aluminium base.

Precision details

100 individual LEDs within the control dial, 6 machined customisable 'smart buttons' & a precision modular design; there is nothing quite like the Linn Selekt DSM.

With 5x HDMI eARC inputs & streaming onboard, this is a truly flexible AV receiver.

Standard DAC

The standard option; a stereo DAC that performs beautifully in all applications.

You can start here, and as your taste matures, simply upgrade the built-in DAC cartridge to suit your needs to either the Katalyst or Organik DAC.

Katalyst DAC

Linn's high-performance Katalyst DAC architecture performs the digital-to-analogue conversion process with a high degree of accuracy and finesse.

With Katalyst, we have reached the absolute pinnacle of performance attainable while utilising trusted and high-quality 3rd-party chipsets.

Through relentless optimisation of the various critical processes adjacent to the DAC itself, Linn have produced a refined data optimisation stage; a highly accurate master clock; independent power supply wells; an low distortion output driver, and a high stability reference voltage level.

The latter is vitally important. At the point of creation, the delicate analog audio signal is particularly susceptible to even minuscule variations in the reference level, which would cause irreversible damage to the music — heard as distortion or noise.

Katalyst’s high-stability input reference level eliminates variations during analog signal creation, giving you deeper insight into your music.

Organik DAC

At Linn, nothing progresses beyond the prototype stage if it can’t answer this question with a resounding ‘Yes!’.

Designing and building Linn's own DAC, completely from scratch, was no exception. It was only worth doing if the result would be significantly better than any previous designs utilising 3rd-party chips.

How does it sound? That’s not for us to say... nut here is David Price's thoughts.

"The new Organik DAC is a major advance on the already excellent Katalyst. The new DAC’s myriad improvements happen at a deeper, musical level – where the innate emotion of the players is revealed in all its glory."

Its presentation is crisp and taut, trading the last ounce of sonic richness for an enviable sense of control.
