The beating heart of your system

Stream everything, connect anything, and hear it all in the highest quality available. Our DS family of network music players define performance and flexibility. From Studio Master recordings to movie soundtracks, have it all at your fingertips and hear a performance that’s personalised for you.

Total flexibility

Linn network music players will handle anything you throw at them, playing anything you listen to at home; from albums on your hard drive to music in the cloud.

Choose a DSM player and enjoy connections for all your other music sources too, from Blu-Ray players to turntables. Every source connected benefits from Linn’s expertly designed circuitry to preserve every last musical detail.

Plus we’ve designed all our network music players to be software upgradeable, meaning new features, services and even performance upgrades are available to existing owners—for free.

Video: Studio Master original recordings in your home

Award-winning performance

When we launched our first DS player in 2007, it turned the whole concept of music streaming on its head. Designed by Linn from the ground up, this was the highest quality ever heard from digital music and let you play the original Studio Master recording in your own home. But this was only ever the beginning.

Continuous innovation has delivered ever-improving performance, along with new features and numerous awards. But we’re not going to stop innovating any time soon. And as any Linn DS owner will tell you, every new development has been provided as an upgrade to existing customers, from new formats to our incredible Space Optimisation technology.

Linn’s unique alliance of world-class audio engineering to an open and flexible networked design means that any music source—whether stored or streamed, connected or wireless—sounds better through a Linn DS player.

Stream Anything

Everything sounds better

All Linn’s network players use your standard home network, so whether you’ve ripped all your CDs onto your PC, or want to AirPlay from your iPad, they have it all covered.

What’s more you can listen to music from the cloud too, such as Netflix, Spotify or the lossless streaming service TIDAL.

Control it with anything

Mix & match controllers

Every Linn network music player can be controlled by the things you already own. Whether it’s your iPad or tablet, smartphone or laptop, or just the humble remote control, pick your favourite device and download an app to control your Linn system. Choose music, browse artwork, create playlists … access your music wirelessly from any room.

If you prefer to stick to iTunes, Spotify or whatever you normally use, that's fine too. Download our Songcast app and anything you play can be streamed through your Linn system, letting you enjoy your favourite tunes in the best Linn quality.

Music in
any room

Multi-room sound

Anything you play through a Linn system can be shared around your home, including Blu-ray, TV, your digital music collection or even vinyl. Play the same track in every room, perfectly synchronised together, or select a different mood for each room in your home.

The best parties may start in the kitchen but, like your music, they don’t have to stay there.

Hear the music, not the room

Every room has its own particular sound. But with a Linn network music player you no longer have to let your room have such a big say in what you hear. Using Space Optimisation the unwanted distorting effects of your listening environment are removed, revealing the true sound of the music.

No matter what speakers you use, and however you’ve designed your room, with a Linn network music player you’ll hear a performance that’s optimised uniquely for you.
